DS 160 with 7months OLD PASSPORT

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I would like to ask some advice as we are now in processing the approved K1 visa (USCIS) and already filling up the DS160. Our case status is already in "READY".

QUESTION IS:

Is it okay to submit the ds160 with 7months old passport and use the renewed one in interview? I have my old passport now but im waiting for the new one. Unfortunately it might take 4-8weeks to release and its just 3weeks now. I want to submit it now to be able to look for available slot in interview. Im just getting worried that we might get us late and nothing to get a slot before our noa2 expired (december 2 ). I was thinking its okay coz ill be having the two passports with me anyway but i want to make sure everything will be okay.

Thank you and appreciate all your advice.

Bringing both passports to the interview should be sufficient.

Hi,

Yes i did under non immigrant, but after i register and have to choose which visa i have i cant find the k1 fiance visa in the choices. Ive read that it should be in immigrant visa. So what i did is register under immigrant visa using my other emails as the one i used in non immigrant was not allowed to use under immigrant. After i register there is one page that i have to enter information such as name,surname,ds160#, case # etc..and every time i click the "create applicant" its not allowing me to go into the next page. Instead its giving me this message under the case number " is not ready for interview".

I dont know if i did something wrong and if using two emails will be a problem. I need guide and hope you can help me with this please. Im sorry i feel like im stupid and so worried about it. I guess i messed up something. :cry::cry::cry:

Thank you. Any help would be so much appreciated.

https://ceac.state.gov/ceacstattracker/status.aspx

It says ready since Sept 1. You can check how my case went through into my timeline. Our case was mistakenly sent to a wrong embassy. We request a transfer and for about 5days our case status is "transfer in progress". Then it became "ready" september 1 - 7 and the letter after our case number was change into ABD. Here is our case number before when its in riyadh. RID2016****** 01 RID. Thats after checking status on the above link. Then after its in "READY" our case number become. RID2016****** 01 ABD.

So i believed it has been already received by Abu dhabi. But im wondering why it doesnt let me do the payment or schedule interview. :cry::cry:

Yes I see that.. http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/588735-waiting-for-k-1-visa-interview-in-abu-dhabi/page-2

some people say you just submit the ds160 and cant pay until dates are available and others say they just pay without difficulty. I can only assume it was timing, if dates are open they were able to pay.. They are very confusing in that embassy. I keep looking around...
