Scheduling London Interview around Work Trip

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all - We just received our NOA 2 for the K1 a week ago, and have a question for the future - all documents needed for the medical appointment and interview are in our hands already. What we're concerned with is when to send in our readiness forms/schedule the medical, given that:

- My fiance beneficiary will be out of the UK on a work trip from June 25-July 1st.

- And has a possible work trip outside the UK sometime around the last week of July.

He will obviously need his passport, and be unable to attend an interview during this time. We hoped to have him over in the USA by mid-late August, and had hoped to have the interview sometime in that early July period.

I've read about individuals who were able to hold onto their passports and send them back into the embassy to have the visa put in them after they returned (if their interview was right before a trip), but is there any way to ensure that an interview will not be scheduled during a week when one is without a doubt going to be away from the UK?

Send the readiness form while your fiance is away, if you like. Once you have submitted it, send an note to them on their contact page advising of the dates you are away. They do seem to match inquiries to your file if you put your case number in with the message. I noticed that when they replied to mine, my CEAC status updated. They won't schedule your appointment until they get the readiness form.
