RE: London Embassy 

Would greatly appreciate anyone who would share with me the following; 

        How long was it after your medical exam in London that the Embassy sent you an Appointment Letter? 

        Once you received the Appointment Letter how many days was it until your Interview ? 

 

  Many Thanks,

Hi there at the London embassy you are not designated an appointment you need to book that yourself.  The consensus here seems to be that you are best to book it 2 weeks after your medical

 

"After you have attended your medical examination, you should then schedule your visa interview through the Visa Appointment Service website at https://ais.usvisa-info.com/en-gb/iv and follow these instructions:

  • Select “I have received a letter from the consular section with instructions to register or schedule a K visa appointment”;
  • Follow the onscreen instructions to register an account;
    • If you have children applying under your case number, you may “add” applicants to your account after you have added your own details.
  • You will be asked to select your delivery method for the return of your passport if your visa application is successful. Delivery to a courier depot is free. If you wish to upgrade to home/office delivery you can pay an additional fee through your account;
  • Pay the MRV application fee;
  • You will then be offered the first available interview date, but you may choose any available date. Note: You may schedule an appointment to take place after the petition expiration date, provided that you bring to your interview a signed letter from your petitioner confirming that you both remain legally free to marry and that you will marry within 90 days of your arrival in the United States.
  • Please go to “Print Instructions” in order to print your courier confirmation page. You must bring this with you on the day of the visa interview."

Hope this helps and good luck

If it helps at all I attended my medical on 09 May and have scheduled the interview for 22 May, so I'm hoping 13 days will be enough.  I followed the instructions posted by @ConnorS above in order to schedule the interview, I'm not actually sure what would happen if the embassy hadn't received the medical by this point (I presumet they'd just tell you to go away and come back another day) or if there's a way to check ahead of the interview if they have it.  You will need to have completed and submitted your DS160 before you book the appointment.

No, they won't send you away. They approve you "pending medical results". Then your case gets pushed to the back burner and and you're in the dark wondering how long it's going to take them to get back to your case and finish up. That wait, even if just a week causes angst among the impatient.

would appreciate advice from anyone who's recently received a K-1 VISA in London.  I've not yet received the letter from the Embassy but somehow I was able to pay the fee and book an appointment. Has anyone gone to their interview without having 1st received a letter from the Consular Section? 

 

Thanks

Absolutely. All the time. Nowhere in require documents does it say to bring the letter of instruction (Formerly called Packet 3) to your interview.
