Hi guys,


We just received our NOA2 (yay September filers!). Here's the hitch. My fiancée will be traveling with her family from early March to early May. I know the NOA2 approval is valid for 4 months, so that puts us in a little predicament. 4 months from today is May 29th. If she is given an interview date any time in March or April, she can't attend. I would rather her enjoy the trip with her family rather than taking a sudden flight back for the interview. So, my questions are:


What can I do to ensure she does not receive an interview date before May? I know it's very possible for her to receive a date in May and not have to worry about this whole issue, but any time before that will not work and any time after that the NOA2 approval will be expired. So, do I simply wait for an interview date to be given before worrying about this or can I be proactive and request an extension? If they extend the validity, does she book her own date or is a new one provided to her?


Hopefully that makes sense. Thanks in advance!

Also keep in mind the medical is only valid for 6 months, so if she does have the interview before going on holiday make sure she's in validity for US POE.
