You have some things to complete before its time to set the interview date. See the above link



See above links to embassy info

Please complete your profile...your country is not listed therefore, your posts cannot be directed to others working/familar with your embassy. Have you researched in your country's portal?


Please read the K1 guide....scroll towards the bottom to read: What to send to your fiance once the I-129F is approved (Receive NOA2):

I have read plenty about the documents that we need to have..

The thing Im not sure about is how im setting the date for the interview?

Is it the nvc site? Uscis website? Jeruslam consulate website? Do i set the date by phone call? ..

And also.. Do I set the date with the case number that I'll get from the NVC ? Or maybe I'll have to have the hard copy of the NOA2 in order to do that..

Thanks a lot again.

Also I dont know anything about Israel portal.. Thanks!

You can call NVC in approximately 2 weeks after receiving the NOA2 by mail.

NVC phone # 603-334-0700.

You need to provide them the Petitioner name and date of birth + Beneficiary name and date of birth.

NVC will give you the RDJ # and will send your case to the Consulate in the Beneficiary´s country. This can take several weeks.

However, you only will be able to schedule the interview after receiving an email (Both will receive, Petitioner and Beneficiary) and a mail from the Consulate where your case were sent (in the Beneficiary´s country) stating you case was received and is ready to be scheduled.

Follow the instructions on the email/mail.

You need to fill in online the DS160 form:


Then create an account in order to schedule your interview and pay the fees:


I believe that this process can be different from country to country.

After your interview to be scheduled, you need to make an appointment for a medical exam (pick the doctor from Consulate´s list) + tests (follow the doctor´s instructions).

Hope this can help you!

Good luck!

Did you read the embassy info? It says the embassy sets the date and explains the process in the additional info section at the bottom.

As I said, seems to me that the procedure can be different on each country.

In my case, even with the NVC #, I couldn´t schedule the interview until the US Consulate send me an email saying that they had received my case.

My fiancee also called the NVC and got the number, and everyday I tryed to schedule but didn´t succeed. The website said "Your case number is not ready for schedule your interview".

my case got approved and I need some help please..

How exactly can I set the the date for the interview? and what do I need to have in order to do so ?


You need the case number from NVC to set up your interview and complete the ds-160 form. Have you recieved anything or called NVC for your case number?

I've seen many people complaining about NVC here. It sounds like they're a little backed up.
