Re-scheduling an interview. Can I choose the time?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've done my biometrics a little over two months ago and no interview has been scheduled yet. My mother is quite ill and I might need to go abroad for a few months. If they schedule an interview while I'm away, I intend to request a re-scheduling. I have 2 questions

 

First, when I request rescheduling, can I ask for an approximate date? As in saying in the letter "I will be back to America on March 15th and hope you can schedule the new interview sometime after March 15th".  Is this doable, or do I have NO say in when the re-scheduled interview will be?

 

Second question, can I request re-scheduling an interview more than once? If they re-schedule and I still could not make it back on time because of the health issues, can I request a second re-scheduling, or it's only allowed once?

 

Thanks

You can include a request for an approximate time-frame in your letter---however USCIS is under no obligation to consider it (also note they are under no obligation to heed your request to reschedule the interview, either).

You can request rescheduling more than once, however you'll have to again provide justifiable reasons/evidence that it's beyond your control to attend the second one, as well.
