I'm utterly confused.  I spoke with a rep with VAC for my wife's biometrics appointment. He said she needs to receive a "medical packet" from the embassy to do her medical exam? The case is still at NVC but an interview is scheduled for Nov 29 (Santo Domingo). We have our appointment letter.  He also said that he would send a request to the embassy to expedite the packet. 

 

What is he talking about because, honestly this is the first we are hearing of a "medical packet."

 

Can anyone help?

 

Also, she was told that she can do her biometric appt prior to the med exam. It is already scheduled.

That's weird. My husband did his biometrics last week and they didn't tell him anything about that. He is also doing his medical this coming week, called the consulate approved office and they just want to see his passport, interview letter, and DS 260 confirmation. Maybe he is grouping those items as a packet?

It caused us a great deal of grief because we had no idea what he was talking about. I called NVC and they said that he is referring to the appointment letter (which I told him we had already received). It was a huge communication breakdown. Then I get an email from UStraveldocs.gov saying that we would not receive a "Packet 3." I.have no idea what that is. The whole thing was confusing. Still no idea but all is well.

I’ve heard people on here talk about packet 3, I believe that’s for another type of visa like K1.
