incomplete feeling...

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I seem to progress through the different forum topics here as my journey goes along...

To keep it short:

I (the petitioner) sent in my wifes AOS/IV packets to NVC,

never got any kind of contact and within basically 2 weeks my wife got an email saying that her interview had been scheduled in the Rio de Janeiro consulate.

I have received no information on this, when I go on to check on the ceac website it states that its "ready" and to wait for the appointment letter (which she has only received an email).

My question is: Am i missing something? I feel like there should be some sort of paperwork or something I (as the petitioner) need to complete. So far the only instruction we have from the interview email is for her to schedule her medical (which she has) and thats it.

TSC to PSC- November 10th 2015 :huh:

LOCAL OFFICE- December 2nd 2015 :o

AOS Fee Paid- March 18th 2016

I have heard that cases from Brazil are getting auto expedited. You got blessed. Al the best.

There's no paperwork to complete just prepare fr your interview. Make sure you have all your originals of the copies you submitted to NV. Since you just sent you probably have updated AOS. Get your evidence and whatever else. Run to get your medical and go get approved.

By the way congratulations I have added you to the spreadsheet.

No your case was expedited like Dwheels said. It caught me and my wife by surprise too. NVC informed us it was because of the Olympics. So just take all of the original documents and the ones you sent to the The National Visa Center.

So your interview is the 20th. I know a woman who's having her immigrant visa interview the same day. Mine is the 17th. Next week!

Good luck!
