Hello, 

So we have already sent our packet 3 and are now waiting on receiving the authorization to schedule our interview date and medical appointment. I was just wondering how did those who did the process through the US Embassy in Madrid receive that authorization? Was it through mail or electronically through email?

Would appreciate any type of info on that! Thanks 🤗

Country-specific thread is moved from the K-1 Process forum to the Europe/Eurasia regional forum.


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

For anyone who might be wondering the same,  we ended up receiving the authorization to book the interview through email about 2 weeks after our packet 3 got to the embassy!

Hello: I am also processing my case at US Embassy in Madrid but I am not at that point yet. Our case is already at the embassy, and I would like to ask you when did you send package 3 to Madrid, once you knew the case was at the embassy or you waited until the beneficiary received the package 3? In case you waited for package 3, how did you receive it -by email or by email-, and how long it took for the embassy to send it to you? Thank you very much.

We emailed them once we knew our case was at the embassy at ivmadrid@state.gov, asking if it was possible to get packet 3 through email and then 2 to 3 days later they replied to us with the packet 3 attached to the email. We sent packet 3 after receiving it through email. We never received a physical letter so email them asap.

Thank you so much for your answer Mickester. Last Friday I checked the status of our case in CEAC and it appears as Ready, before the status was In transit. Assuming that Ready means the case is already at the embassy in Madrid I sent them an email the same day asking if we have to wait for package 3 to send the required documents. They replied to me today and this was the answer:

Dear Mr....

Please, see and follow the instructions attached to this email.

There was not attachment, and I wonder what does that answer mean? They have the case but they haven't process it yet? 

Any thought will be appreciated.

It seems like they have sent or tried to send you packet 3 in that email you just got, I would recommend opening the email in another browser or forwarding it to yourself to another email, or to your fiance's email. I was not able to see the attachment in one email but I was able to see the attachment in my other email. Give that a try, if you still do not see an attachment, email them back saying there is no attachment, maybe they made a mistake, but try the other things first.

I am following  this case. I am guessing i will have news about my case soon. I was wondering how they will notificated me, cause they don't habe my email (the electronic one) just my mail. They just know the Petiotionary email, it is what they ask in the I129-f form. I read here, you never received a letter, so how will you know when your case is ready?

Hello Mickester: I sent an email to the embassy notifying them I didn’t receive the attachment and they replied to me today with packet 3 attached. You were absolutely right. Thank you very much. All documents requested in packet 3 were sent to the embassy today. Thanks a lot. Regards

The status can be seen on the CEAC website, it will show "in transit" when on its way to the embassy and "ready" when it has arrived to the embassy. I called nvc and gave them the beneficiary's email when my case was at the NVC. You could email the embassy and provide them with the beneficiary's email.

Hi!

 

I sent my packet 3 on May 3rd and the status says "Ready" but I haven't received any email or letter saying that I can schedule my appointment.

Do you know how long does it usually take?

 

Thank you!!

Usually about 2 weeks from the date it arrives to the embassy. So I would say, you should be receiving something this week. Hopefully you do!! Good luck!!!
