Time between medical and interview - London, United Kingdom

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


I am new to this forum and have not posted anything yet.

I sent my Notification of Readiness 3 weeks ago and had my medical three days ago. Everything has taken a lot longer than initially anticipated and my arrangements to leave the country for the US are now only 4 weeks away. I know this is very close... How soon will I get my medical interview? I am a London resident, does that make a difference? Is there any way to expedite it? Do they take into consideration the wedding date put on the Notification of Readiness?

I called the embassy several times to get some sort of information but they are plain rude and make me feel like every time I call.

When we schedules my departure date it seemed like plenty of time, but everything took so much longer than anticipated and now I am freaking out and stressing... :help:

Thank you in advance for any advice. Or just some supportive words!

I've heard of people being scheduled for interviews sooner if your scheduled wedding date is not for off however I wouldn't rely on it. And I highly doubt they would be sympathetic to expedite your interview based on the fact you've already booked flights etc. They specifically tell you not to make travel/wedding plans because this process isn't a set in stone kind of thing; paperwork can be lost, after interview you could go into long AP or even denied and need to submit further paperwork. Basically, anything can happen so don't book anything until your visa is in hand.

I have only just received my NOA2 and wouldn't dare to book anything until I have my visa. I wouldn't want to risk losing money and time because I know how this process can change by the day.

Don't mean to be the bearer of bad news. Just my two cents. Realistically it would've been better to wait.

Good luck though, hope it works out!
