Moscow appointment

29 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We decided to stick with having our appointment in Moscow, and this morning I filled everything out for the "schedule an appointment" section on the site. I got a message saying "we have received your request for an appointment and will contact you when one is available". I keep hearing about people checking multiple times a day... where are you checking? can someone show me what its supposed to look like?

Hello, how is it going? We are in a similar situation. They have told him they'd send him an email with the appointment time but nothing yet.

Yes, called the embassy and they asked him about what dates he would like to interview and they said they would send him an appointment time and what to do next through email but it's been a week.

No problem. I heard that there is a group that helps each other out with Moscow appointments.  I"m not sure how but I'm investigating and but maybe we will hear something that will be helpful.

Maybe they just mean they are checking their email. That's what we are checking.

How is it going with you? We are still waiting for the email which gives us an appointment times and information about what to do next. It's been a little over a week. Good luck.

Anastasia's been reporting no interview slot openings so far in December via the WhatsApp group. Not a huge concern for us right now, as our case isn't in Moscow yet and our plan is for me to meet her in Moscow for her sister's wedding in March and then come back together, but a little worrying in that it's backing up people ahead of us like the OP.

Any chance she can add me to that whatsapp group? :) got packet 3 today! Whee. From what im seeing is lots of people are opting to go out o the country for their interview and it seems to be getting easier. Maybe it will work out for you in march :) when was your NOA2?

How is it going?  It seems that when they send you an email then they send you a link telling you that you may schedule an appointment. You follow the link and log-in and so far all we get is "no appointments available."

We are trying to get on as well but no appointments. So, does anyone know how they post them?  For example, do they post all available appointments in the morning or just post them whenever?  My concern is that he and I both work at jobs where we can't check multiple times a day whereas others who may even have been approved after us may be able to stay on-line and get the appointments when they pop up. I don't know how this process works but it's frustrating.
