Medical booked, interview?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

So I have my medical booked for Feb 8th, my question is, do I need to have my visa interview booked before I attend the medical? Or can I book the interview at another point (obviously within the validity timescale of my medical)?

They actually would love for you to attend the medical before you book your interview. Read the instructions on the embassy website.  Your medical is good for 6 months. Your visa will expire six months from the medical so if you are trying to stall, then push back the medical.

Geez, I'll be close to first name basis with you soon Wuozopo! We're not stalling, we just know we have 6 months from the medical and are still toying with the whole visa interview stuff. So we was just wondering if I could complete my medical without even booking an interview, or if we could do the medical, see if they respond with anything and then book the interview 🙂

No stalling, just timely

Your visa will be issued to expire in August with your Feb medical. Concerning the clinic that may say bring your interview letter...that is to IR1/CR1 spouses who are assigned an interview by NVC and would already have an actual letter. You just show them something on paper that states your LND case number. It can be from NVC saying they have forwarded case to London. It can be the instruction letter the embassy sends when they receive the case.

 

If you don't interview by the the end of March, take a new letter of intent from your fiancé. Your NOA2 has an expiry date on it (four months).. Not an issue if it expires, but they want your fiancé to say she still is still free to marry and intends to marry you within 90 days of your arrival on a K1 visa

Perfect, as always thank you again for the information. 

 

Time to twiddle thumbs and play eye-spy until they release being able to book a March appointment!

Instead of twiddling thumbs:

  • Make sure you get all your shots done to take to your medical. Then you can be signed off for AOS and not have to pay a civil surgeon to sign you off in the US. Do you have a complete shot record already? Health summary from GP? Write up of any surgeries or major illnesses? 
  • If you have medical and interview figured out, start reading the AOS forum for all the mistakes people make so you won't make them and get an RFE

  • Shots done, 
  • Vaccination record updated, 
  • GP Summary printed (probably get a fresh printout closer to the time),
  • AOS here I come! 

 

Is there a guestimate one when March appointments will be released for booking that you're aware of?
