Question guys, with Casablanca, once they receive the file, if we start emailing I am assuming this speeds up the process correct? What if we didn't email, would the interview take longer to be assigned?

 

My NOA2 date is Jan 4th, when do you guys anticipate my interview to be?

 

Thanks in advance guys , have a good day/night

Your case will need to be assigned a number at the NVC and then forwarded on to Casa. I would imagine you'll get your case number end of Jan/beginning of Feb. Give it about 2 weeks after to begin emailing. I would think interview in March or April would be a reasonable guess

Thank you, so basically I have to email them to get an interview? They don't schedule it unless I email? Is that correct?

They probably would but everyone generally emails because they want an interview date ASAP. You don't have to email if you don't want to.....

Here is some advanced information.

 

Once you get a case number, you can fill out the DS 160 online. Print the confirmation page for this once completed. 

 

When you have your case number, enter it here https://ceac.state.g...ker/status.aspx and it will tell you one of three things,  at NVC, In Transit, or Ready. Once your case shows "Ready" then you email the consulate and request an interview. Include your name, fiancés name, case number and that you're looking to schedule a K1 Fiance Visa interview. I heard they'll email you back within 2 weeks or so but some have heard back the same day that they sent the email. 

 

When they email you back they'll tell you when your appointment is. Attached will be packet 3. Includes a list of doctors to choose from for the medical , your rights and your appointment letter. At that point - just get your papers together. Usually your fiancé gets the police records in a week. Court records same day. Celabecy letter same day. And birth cert in the same day. Once you have them, then dropped them off to be translated. Picked them up in a week. Already you're at 2 weeks for gathering the fiancés paperwork. On top of that make sure your fiancé sends you their documents (I-134, proof of relationship, taxes, pay stubs, letter from employer, updated letter of intent..).

No apology needed :)

 

I am just grateful that this process so far has been smooth and with no hiccups along the way, if it is next quarter than alhamdulilah, not worried at all. I have been looking thru Moroccan profiles and noticed a 75 to 85 day span between NOA2 and interview, this is where I was confused I guess and why the question came up.  Thanks.

Greenbaum, just curious, do the embassies do things different from country to country?  I am doing a K1 with my fiancé from the Philippines right now, and we scheduled the interview appointment on our own.  We did not have to get the embassy to schedule our interview.  We did it all through this site.

I'm not Greenbaun, but certainly is different. In my country you can schedule the appointment when your case is in transit at the NVC site and you have to do it yourself. P3 and P4 officially don't exist? The only instructions you get are the ones in the ustraveldocs site. And interviews are usually 6-10weeks  after your case is in transit or ready. My case was received last week and my interview is on March 1st.

The Embassy do have different requirements. Some will require you to complete some paperwork and send back to them and once they confirm you have provided everything they have asked for they will open the scheduling website whereas others (Philippines follows this regiment) will allow you to schedule your own once your record is set to "Ready" condition. Here are the instructions and informative links you should review for the Philippines.

Also, there is a sub-forum for the Philippines here on VJ that you should be a part of. It's a good place to read what others are experiencing which will only prepare you for your interview.

Manila US Embassy states that a scanned copy of the signed I-134 is fine, if you don't have the original.
