Question on how Interview instructions will be sent

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have read that the K-1 Visa interview instructions (so called parts 3 & 4) for the Moscow U.S. Embassy will be sent by DHL express to my fiance', but have also read that the instructions will be sent by an email to her. Which way is the current correct method? She lives in the Siberian section of the country. Thanks to anyone who really knows the correct answer!

They will not send anything to her. They will email you when they have received her info to tell you that you can schedule the interview.

All instructions are on their site:

http://moscow.usembassy.gov/iv-fiancee.html

There is no packet 3/4 for Russia. You do not send anything to the embassy, you schedule the interview yourself and bring all documents they need to the interview.

You pay and schedule the interview here:

Thank you very much vbtwo! I certainly had the wrong information but this whole process has been full of wrong information at certain times.

No, not wrong information, but old information....there was a time when they did mail (maybe it was DHL) documents to the beneficiary....now they don't.

And back then, if you didn't receive them, you could download from the website and bring those.

Good luck.

Hello baron555, Thank you for that update as I thought I had heard that in earlier Moscow cases. I called the NVC today and they said they received our paperwork July 6, but it is not "entered" into their system yet, thus no case number. Seven months to receive NOA2, and now I guess another long wait for Moscow to be ready for the interview.

From what I have read, the Moscow interview process does not appear to be very difficult or long? Thanks again for all the information.

Your timeline looks a lot like ours did way back when. I think we were at NVC about three weeks, check our timeline since I have CRS syndrome!!!

No, and you can attend if you want. Keep in touch, Phil

Nice to meet you Phil. I wanted to be with her but had just returned from Moscow not long ago. She should do very well as we have been a couple for 3 years. A bonus for her is that she speaks very good English and knows more about me than I do, lol. I will keep in touch and thank you for your nice reply to my questions.
