Aos for interview maybe late

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi so my fiances interview is next tues and they definatly sprung it on us giving us one weeks notice. I sent my Aos along with tax return and w2 via FedEx and it may not arrive until mon evening. His interview is 8 am so that doesn't leave much time. I'm worried if he will not get the package in time what can we do? I don't want to reschedule because apparently the next time is in 3 months. But we have all other documents. Is it possible to go to the interview without it and maybe they give a 22g or whatever it's called to return with that document ? I don't think it would be a good idea to arrive an hr or two late.

(Actually, It seems from the post that it is the K1 interview, and the poster mistook the Affidavit of Support needed for the K1 visa for AOS. The member has no timeline but does indicate filing for a K1.)

The K1 journey:

11/09/2013 - I-129F Packet mailed to Dallas Lockbox

02/14/2014 - Case shipped to Embassy, where it waited for over a year at my request

05/21/2015 - Interview - Approved.

06/19/2015 - Wedding (L)

The K1-AOS journey:

06/22/2015 - AOS packet mailed to Chicago Lockbox

11/07/2015 - AOS approved (EAD and AP had already been approved) - there was no interview

The K2-AOS journey:

03/04/2017 - AOS packets mailed to Chicago Lockbox

09/26/2017 - Email notifications - both cards in production! AOS approved with no interview (EAD and AP already approved)


The ROC journey:

10/12/2017 - ROC packet mailed to VSC

DO NOT RESCHEDULE... Go to the interview and don't mention anything about the AOS and tax return untill they ask you for it. And then let them know that you were not able to receive them since you had such a short notice and they will ask you to mail those documents.

As soon as they receive those documents , they will issue you the visa.

Secondly, My wife was also required to bring AOS and Tax return to her interview, but they did not even ask for it. So hopefully they won't ask you as well if everything else is fine.
