Question regarding interview scheduling

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We received the I-797 approval a couple of weeks ago. I was wondering how the interview scheduling happens. Do they give you a range of dates and you can pick? Do they give you a date and that's the date you need to show up? We are trying to plan a visit trip for her to come back and see me for a month or two so this information would be very helpful to us. Our approval on the I-797 is valid until 11/15/15

Also - When does the affidavit of support need to be done? Is this prior to the interview? After marriage (for adjustment of status?)

thank you!

After you fill out the DS-160 and pay for it online you can schedule an appointment online and pick one of the available dates. As far as I know they only do the K-1 visa appointments on Thursdays and usually the nearest available dates will be in the next month (I scheduled my July 2nd appointment on I believe the 6th of June).

Hi,

No, the doctor down in Malmö retired so the remaining options is in Gothenburg (Kungsportsläkarna) and in Stockholm (Sibyllekliniken).

A tip is to read the reviews about the stockholm embassy, a lot of fellow swedes post the asked questions there :)

Mvh
