Recommended Posts

Hi guys 

My case has been  documentarily qualified from NVC since al most 1 month  and til now NVC hasn't send any email to us about the  interview date 

will this take long time ? we are wondering whether  we have to call NVC or it's ok we keep waiting ?

Did you receive the email from NVC telling you that you are in the queue waiting for an interview?   If so, there really isn't anything you can do right now.  Most interviews are set within 3 months (per my email).  The consulate has to inform NVC of available interview dates/times before NVC sets them....

NVC sent us that they will work with the embassade to schedule an interview appointement

i know so many people who got their interview date within 2 weeks from getting their documents approved

It depends so much from the country and the embassy. Have you had a look what is timeline for other applicants fro Tunisia?
