Interview Scheduled

I called NVC today and they gave me the interview date by phone. Nov 29: one year to the day of our NOA1!

 

They said we should receive our letter in a few days. The NVC rep said that I am not required to attend.  My question here is: Does the embassy in Santo Domingo allow petitioner spouses to accompany? The NVC rep wasn't able to give a definite answer. I really want to attend if possible because I'm almost afraid to not attend. And I need to know soon in terms of flight scheduling (the longer one wait, the higher the airfare). Advice?

Congratulations!  Yes, the Embassy in Santo Domingo allows the petitioner to attend the interview.   I was hoping for a November date as well, but I won't have CC til next week, and it looks like they are already at the the end of the month for scheduling.

Congrats!!! I wont be able to attend I will be giving birth on 11/16 via c-section and my husband interview date is 11/20.  I have a high risk pregnancy and two rep's told me pregnant women will not be allowed to get into the embassy anyway. But yes you are able to attend. I just received my interview letter today via email.

We received our letter today and it says that the petitioner isn't required to attend.  I'm not sure if that is a standard form letter portion or if it is in fact a positive sign. Anyway,  I called the embassy and the rep said I am not required to attend but would be welcome to be there.  Further,  it will be up to the CP officer if I'm allowed to come into the interview. Not sure about that one but we will obviously follow their directives without question. I do plan to attend and hope to be part of the interview. Either way, we just want this whole thing to be over and all to run smoothly. Prayers appreciated.
