Recommended Posts

Hi VJers,

So Monday we got case complete and on the same day they scheduled our interview for the 28th June. So I call and schedule the medical for tomorrow the 10th.

(They wouldn't allow us to schedule before case complete)

Today I get a call that they are changing our interview for thw 15th!!

2 working days after medical.

They were supposed to mail the results to the Embassy. Now what?

Is that even enough time for the results?

Thank you for your time.

Ps. It was either the 15th or July... they are closed on the 28th!

Oh I am :)

Maybe I can try to get them to send the results faster. I will explain the situation.

How long before the interview did you guys get the medical?

Do you think they will tell us at the interview if we are approved?

There will not be any surprises with medical. All vaccines done, no TB (vaccinated as child ) no syphilis lol, never drugs. Heck I don't even smoke.

I hope they at least give us a clue!!

Thank you!!

Yes, if there isn't any other problem. The visa will be issued when the medical arrives. Here they have let people have the interview without either the medical or police report and been approved "pending".

Cool!! Here they wanted EVERYTHING in advance, everything! They wouldn't even talk to us if they didn't receive every last bit of paper as they wanted it.

In the instructions it only says to have the medical before the interview, it does not state how long before the interview!! I will explain the situation to the doctor and see if they can maybe send it on time or if I am allowed to pick it up and take it with us.

Wish us luck guys!!

Thank you all once again.

Medical done!! I explained the situation and they said I can pick up the sealed envelope myself on the 14th!!!

Yay!! We were current in all vaxes. Only thing they asked for the boys' dyslexia papers which I didn't think were needed at all but I can fax these.

We now have two boys and a girl!! 2013 - 2015 - Looking for jobs in Greece, none were available (due to socioeconomic crisis) 2015 - Decided only way to feed our family was to immigrate and started the process December 2015 - Got married (Greece has a LOT of red tape for foreigners marrying Greeks)
January 2016 - Finished gathering all documents and getting them translated

July - October 2017 - Marriage counseling. Revealed hubby has "several" mental conditions. Is started on several mental meds.
