NEED HELP: Moving Interview Because of Church Wedding Schedule Conflict

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


I am unsure if anyone here has experienced this before, but we called NVC to check on our interview date and was told that its June 17 at 915am. The problem is that we are having our church wedding in the Philippines on June 19 and the interview is in Singapore. The embassy according to information we have gathered online does not give the visa on the day but will need approx 3-5 days. Is there anyway that we can move the interview date? Is this an acceptable reason?

Thank you so much.

I hope you mean blessing.

Not sure if you need a reason.

Okay so we married through civil union in Singapore in October last year. We filed for petition soon after. However, since we both come from catholic families, we decided to have a church wedding where both our families can attend. Problem is the interview and church wedding schedule is too close that we will not be able to make it to one. The church wedding has been set 8 months ago and our friends and family from the US are travelling to the Philippines to attend and we already have paid the plane tickets, hotels, resorts, reception area, church, etc. for the wedding.

The question mainly is that will the embassy allow us to reschedule the interview because of this.

Sounds like you really have to ask the embassy....

Re-scheduling is usually not a huge problem, but you may be waiting several more month for a new slot.
