Interview in 9 days still no interview confirmation letter from embassy

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

If my letter doesn’t arrive in time what can I do and is there anyone I can contact in the mean time? P3 letter came to my address fine but I’ve had my interview booked since mid November and no confirmation letter from the embassy yet. I know I’m supposed to take it with me to my interview. 

Worried as where I live there’s a backlog of post due to Christmas my son got a letter from the tax man on 29th December that has been mailed on the 19th.

had nothing by email either all I have is the booking confirmation and courier booking confirmation.

will this delay my interview or get me a 221g?

Hi.

 

No need to wait for the letter. You only need your DS-160 for London and I-134. 

That’s a relief to know as i had read I have to bring my interview confirmation letter with me to my interview

I don't think we ever even received that in the post, haha. I would bring another copy of your NOA 1, your whole I-129F packet (copy), 2 passport type photos, another letter intent to marry along as well.

The required docs list on the embassy site doesn’t ask for either the noa1 or I-129F and only wants another letter of intent to marry if noa2 expired which it won’t have.

It doesn't but it is good to have at the interview in case they want to see it. This is what my fiance (now husband) brought to his interview last year.

Did they ask your husband to see any of that?

They did take a quick look at the copy of the I-129F asking basic questions of where I [petitioner] worked and what kind of job I did and for clarification on some things on the application. It's up to you to bring a copy or not but it certainly didn't hurt us to.

They do not mail you a postal LETTER stating your interview date. When you book online, you get an email or online confirmation that confirms you did indeed successfully book a date and pay the fees, arrange courier, etc. It says to bring it to your interview.

Not a letter. It's a confirmation that you picked a date online. It's to show outside, like having a ticket to allow you in. But if you have nothing, they look you up on their list to see you really do have an interview that day. You will still get in.

Amanda, you do not need NOA1, whole I-129F packet, or new intent to marry. You've read the list and know what to bring.

When I went they did ask for proof that I had an appointment. I used my email confirmation (which they tell you to print out) stating I had an interview on that day. 

But if you didn't have anything with you,  they would have looked for your name on the list of who had appointments for the day. You would have been allowed to interview regardless of having the email confirmation or not.

You don't need it but it certainly didn't hurt to have. Just a friendly tip to have for those who were nervous such as us, it made us feel a lot better and we were glad we brought it.
