Questions about K1 Visa

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Mexico

Hello, I've been reading all the forums but I can't seem to have a very important question answered.

I have recieved packet 3 I believe, where it says the visa is ready for processing and to complete form DS-160. I would like to know how long I have until I have to do that, my fiancé had some problems setting up a passport appointment and it has been pushed to Nov, 3rd. The letter was sent September 1st. Do I have to schedule the appointment before a certain time frame?

I also read that he has to get the same letter as I did, it has been about a month and he does not have the same letter I have, which I guess is a problem because he has to take it with him to the interview...?

Please help.

not to sure about your embassy but the DS160 will have to be completed and the confirmation page will need to be printed before your interview. The confirmation page is what you will take with you to the interview itself.
