Cuba Packet 3?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am very confused, because I see people mention that their fiance has to fill out a packet 3, which usually includes the DS-156 form, to bring to their interview. However, on the website for the Department of State and the U.S. Interests Section in Havana, I am not seeing any information about this. Is it required for Cuba? My fiance's interview is July 30, and he has already had his medical exam.

I would appreciate any help at all. Thank you!!

As long as he has filled the DS 160 you will be ok. I wish you good luck on the interview.

question did you wait on the NVC letter to schedule the medical exam and the interview, and if you did how long did it took your petition to reach the interest section.

thanks

Thank you! Yes, we had to wait until we received the NVC letter and also for the Interests Section website to indicate that our case status was "ready for processing". It was about a month between receiving our NOA2 and the status showing as "ready".

As long as he has filled the DS 160 you will be ok. I wish you good luck on the interview.
