Hello and thanks in advance for the help!

 

My boyfriend is from Malawi, Africa and we got our NOA2 on 5/13/19. I am going to visit next month and so we are trying to do all we can in hopes that he might be able to fly home with me the first week in August. We do not have our case number yet from the NVC but am hoping to do the medical/police certificate as soon as we can so that once the case has arrived he can interview shortly after. (from what I can tell it is not hard to get an interview date but the medical office may be a bit backed up) For the medical it says that you must bring an appointment letter, is that something that the embassy gives him? I was hoping that once we get the case number he can schedule but am unsure and it has been difficult getting any straight answer from them.

 

Thanks!

Have him contact the medical facility and find out exactly what they require

I know in Belize that the medical office asked for the letter from the embassy with your appointment date or NVC sends an email with the appointment date which they asked me to print off.

With your interview appointment date? How would NVC know this?

You need your interview letter in order to have your medical exam. NVC works with the embassy on available dates for scheduling.

NVC is typically not involved with k1 appointments

Definitely need to contact them or other members about specifics on Malawi. Each country is a bit different. In Philippines, once you have NVC case number, you're on your own to complete and schedule everything, but the medical still requires a copy of the NVC letter so. Also just remember, don't make any plans a head of time (in sense of travel) until the visa is in hand. Just a friendly reminder. This is just the first stage of the process (USCIS). Still a ways to go.

Thank you! Yes for sure not making any travel plans yet, just trying to do what I can as early as I can.

You should be able to schedule your medical with just the case number from NVC, but that usually doesn't take very long, you should already have the police clearance certificate as those are valid for 1 year from date of issue. I got my fiancee's at the time clearance 6 months before her interview because it took a month to get unless you paid extra for " Premium Processing". So I would get started on that right away.
