Yaounde appointments & interview

55 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Muhkoo, I may be able to answer your questions later. My wife got a case complete on 6/9/15 and NVC is yet to schedule her for interview. I saw a spreadsheet and there's a VJ member who had a case complete in April but still no interview date. I'm hoping that it doesn't take forever between case complete and visa interview.

Hello fellow cameroonians. Allow 2 months before you start worrying about NVC. IF YOUR case is complete, follow the deadline written on the approval letter and wait for your appointment letter through regular mail. Also, the interview package will be sent to yde embassy, meanwhile, they will take a week or so to register your package and schedule you for interview. To conclude, just estimate 2-3 months for effective interview after case has been approved.

I'm not sure how much the spouse and fiance visas differ, but thanks for sharing. I think on average Yaounde schedules appointments about 2 months after they process the packet. I just hope ours gets to NVC and then to Yaounde fast!

What do you mean by "allow 2 months before worrying about NVC"? Do you mean 2 weeks? And doesn't the appointment letter come through email? That's what they did for my friend who just got her then-fiance's K-1.

Hello Muhkoo ,as I see there is not many cameroonian here.

We can not benefit from their experiences.me too I have many questions.

i meant 2 months after the case is closed at NVC. As for appointment letter, it would be posted or emailed. It depends on the contact address you gave them. However, since our postal system is so unreliable, you can request your appointment letter bf sent through mail.

You mean they mail them to the US citizen? That would take months. Otherwise, I don't understand since they would have to mail them to the Cameroonian's PO box and most people don't have those.

Do you know if it's possible to get an earlier appointment date than the one they give you? I know they usually give them 2 months out, but that seems a little ridiculous and I'm thinking maybe they just do that to give people time to get the medical and other forms done. I'm sure we can get our forms together and his medical done in just a couple of weeks at most. He already has his police certificate.

National visa center now responds by email and will email you with the interview letter together with date and time once it's been scheduled at the embassy. My dad's visa interview for IR5 immigrant visa was scheduled 2 weeks after email was received as case complete. Yaounde isn't a busy embassy so expect within 2 weeks to 2 months. Good luck.

Tanks starkilla for update and Good luck on your dad's case. Keep US updated on the good ending of this heart-shattering journey.

He had his visa late February and just arrived here in Seattle, Washington last week. He's currently with me at the moment. He was put in Administrative processing after his interview on January 20th for about a month. Basically they told him all looked great and he'll be getting a call in about a week. From what I've learnt most people get put on AP even after verbal approval for some additional classified review stuff with CR1/IR1 spousal visas the main target because of marriage fraud especially in most 3rd world nations since they're considered high risk ones. Crazy thing about AP is it's like being in a black hole and no one can tell when it's gonna be over or what they're actually looking for. All they tell you is wait endlessly.

All I can tell you is clear the kitchen sink and take everything you've got in your arsenal. When it comes to proving bona fide relationships for immigration benefits especially with CR1/IR1 spousal visas the more you've got the better your chances.

Thanks for the info everyone, but don't forget we are applying for different visas so the procedures vary.

EP&PE, how much evidence do you have? I've seen a lot of people say not to bring a lot because it seems desperate. I know the Yaounde embassy doesn't like desperate. When is your medical and your interview?
