Questionnaire After interview

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband had his interview in August. He then asked to give papers to prove my domicile (US citizen). Then he received a questionnaire to fill out (siblings, addresses and social media etc...) 

its been three weeks we haven’t heard anything back. His medical exam was taken In August. If they decide to give the visa for example in January or even February does the medical exam still count because it’s technially their fault they have the visa late. 

 

Will he have ave the full six month period until for example April or May to travel. Or does he have to travel before medical expires. I’m so frustrated and confused as to why it’s taking this long.

DS-5535?

 

The medical expires when it does. If it expires while they are processing the case, then a new medical will be required.

Hi. It didn’t have a name on it. It was a legit pdf typed looking word document that said questionnaire. 

 

I heard the visa expires when the medical does. So I’m scared that if he gets it in January he has to leave by feb. that’s not enough time..usually I know it’s six months

Something like this?

If so, the timeline for it can be anywhere from a few months to several months or longer. Depends on the exact circumstances and how long their investigation takes. There's a pinned thread about it:

 

If the medical were to expire before the visa is issued, he would just need a new medical before they issue the visa.

No. It’s literally just typed questions. Doesn’t have a name or a seal or anything

Okay, well that's a better sign IMO.

Good luck!
