Recommended Posts

Hello VisaJourney.

 

Does anybody have an estimate of how long it takes from when you receive the NOA2 til you are allowed to enter the country?

I am aware that there is the interview and medical.

And i saw that my consulate the Stockholm Embassy does not have a waiting period to schedule an appointment, and i do have all the papers ready for the next steps, but i was just wondering how long it will take.

it all depends on how quick you can get case completed at the NVC stage, and how soon NVC can get you an interview in your country is on their interview turn around time.

I have heard from other Scandinavians that Stockholm is very very fast for interviews and to get your medical once you get your NVC case number because Stockholm can sometimes take as soon as only 1 week to schedule. If you want, there is a thread for Scandinavians here with many who have experience with Stockholm and the processes associated with Scandinavia

What happens next depend on somewhat on luck and some on how well and quickly you and the petitioner do YOUR part.  Think 3 to 6 months.  1 to 2 months after NVC case complete.

Okay, that sounds. 

I do have all the papers ready for the NVC stage, both for online processing and to be mailed.

Do you know is everybody can send in their documents online?

It is country specific, and subject to update at any time.

You need to wait for the NVC to contact you before you can do anything else.

About 5 months from NOA2 to visa in hand if all goes smoothly, could be more, or less depending on country and each case is different.

Ah i see. We have made all documents ready for next stage, so we are not holding it back longer than necessary.

And i can see that scheduling an appointment at the Embassy in Stockholm is supposedly pretty easy, with a waiting line for 2 days or something.

Waiting in Stockholm is very quick, I've heard of other Scandinavians getting interviews only a week from when they get the interview letter, that's why I've seen some Scandinavians on the Scandinavia thread suggesting to get the medical before you get an interview date so that you don't get held up having to wait for medical exam results after your interview

Generally, NVC schedules the appointment.

Can you confirm the medical can be done without an interview letter in hand?

Not personally, I just know I've seen others from the region suggest it saying to use NVC case number to set up a medical

Here's one post I saw of someone suggesting it, there were others in the thread discussing it as well I believe, I know it's not any solid proof that you can but just wanted to show where I got the idea from:

Worth a try.  Would be nice to have confirmation it can actually be done.

That sounds like a good idea.

I thought i was able to schedule the interview date myself? Since most people are probably working, so they have to get the day off and stuff.
