Hello my fiancee has been trying to schedule an interview for the last couple of days....and the earliest time available is 12/1/2016......

Hi Yutekao,

Where you able to get an interview before December in the end? The embassy in Seoul will hopefully be receiving my file soon and I was wondering how long the wait for interview will likely be.

Thanks,

Bryony

Anyone did their interview in South Korea? Any help would be appreciated!

Yes! We are having our interview tomorrow 11/4!!!! My suggestion is to keep checking on the website for any earlier opening spot. That's what we did for 2 weeks straight and found an opening! Just keep checking 3 or 4 times a day.
