Hi everyone!

I'm starting this thread for those of us having their K1 interviews in Buenos Aires during the Argentinian summer.

Let's keep each other posted on experiences, doubts, concerns and comments.

Good luck!

I'm still waiting for my NOA2 for IR1 visa.

I'll follow this thread as I would like to know the processing times of the Embassy (I'll probably have my interview on the second half of the year).

Good luck!!!!

Hey, we are waiting for Ir1 interview but almost same situation. We finished uploading everything last week and are hoping we get an interview date soon. Is anyone using a Retired sponsor for the I864? Thank you. Good luck to us all

I can tell this thread is pretty dead, like most Argentina ones, but I thought I'd ask. has anyone dealt with the Embassy directly in regards to CEAC? They don't seem to understand that the tab for uploading the Affidavit documents is not working, and Emails are responded days later (usually telling me what I already know "you have to upload I-864" and not realizing that I'm TRYING to do just that but nowhere on the CEAC is it letting me do that. I know calling is impossible to get hold of a human being and showing up at the embassy since my Husband isn't a citizen may very well be futile as well but we HAVE to try. Has anyone been in this situation? I don't know what else to try anymore to get them to realize I cant upload what they are asking me and they don't seem to realize it either. I'm afraid this situation is going to drag on until February and my kids are just heartbroken that Daddy can't be with us as soon as we'd hoped. thank you in advance if anyone has any tips!

Hi! I've gone in with Explorer, Mozilla, Safari, and Chrome. The "Financial Evidence" tab at the top that is next to "Civil Documents" tab is just not a functional tab. Had I known Bypassing NVC would cause this, I might not have done it 😔

Hey, they did not. My husband showed up at the Embassy on friday and hand delivered everything including the I864s. They told him they would review it and not to “worry about uploading it”. But that was friday morning and no word yet on anything or an email. No idea when he will get an interview, we had an expedite on jan 7th for a good reason and it seems like nothing will get done until this month ends. I’m sad at the lack of communication but hopefully it will be short lived.

That's a lot of time for an expedite in the final stage! It's good news that they received everything. I hope your husband can schedule the interview soon.

Hello people! It's good to find a thread about Argentina. I hope more people will join it so we can keep eachother updated.

 

Right now im trying to get everything ready for the interview. At this point I'm just waiting for my medical exam. With that being said, I'm waiting to get news from Dr. Kelly. I have contacted him on thrusday morning but I have still got no reply. I want to ask if any of you have had contact any of the doctors and if so how it was.

 

Goodluck to all of us!😊

We went with Dra.Grillo. She gave is an appointment for less than 48hours and she gives the test results back that same day. When we went she was missing a result of something so she dropped off the results personally at the embassy the next day. No experience with Kelly sorry

Hey there! I've seen Dr. Grillo. I sent her an email to book an appointment and she replied the next day. If you bring everything to the appointment, you only need to go there once.

It's so cool we're on the same stage. I'll send you a private message so we're in touch :)
