Interview in the Dominican Republic

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Once you receive package 3 or 4? It really depends on the Embassy. The one in Greece for example is the one I went through and they sent me package 3 and I had to mail everything required on package 3 to them and then they called me to schedule an interview date and a couple days later they emailed me package 4. So it really depends on the Embassy.

Good luck!

Once embasdy receive the petition, you schedule your interview.

here at the carebean forum there are a lots of post about the new process.

Hi again!

I have another question.. Once the embassy receives your package do they set the interview date? I've heard we choose it online now. Is this true?

Hi, can someone clarify if the interview can be chosen for the CR1 applicants? for sure? I read somewhere that always and always the NVC sends interview dates for CR1/IR1 applicants. Maybe only K1 applicants are the only ones that have this option? I don't know. I understand all applicants must go through ustraveldocs and schedule the VAC apt but im still not clear as to who are the people that can schedule both consular and vac.

Please some one clarify.
