Country: Morocco

Hello Everyone, 


The consulate received my petition about 2 weeks ago and I have been emailing them to request an interview and have been getting the same long automated responses. However, today they emailed me this message: 


"Thank you for your email.  We are interviewing K1 cases in the order that we receive them.  Due to the volume of K1 cases, we are several months behind.  We will notify you when your case is next in line.  Please be assured that we will interview all applicants, even if their petition has expired." 



Immigrant Visa Unit, U.S. Consulate General

8, Bd Moulay Youssef, Casablanca, Morocco

Public E-mail: ivcasablanca@state.gov




Official - SBU 



Also, there was a paperclip attachment to the email but I am unable to see if anything is attached. I am just looking for other peoples experiences with what the format of the email looks like when you've gotten your interview date. Any insight would be appreciated!

Morocco seems to be slow and what you are saying is very plausible.  Here is information on your process so that you can begin to prepare for your interview.  Keep your medical exam close to your interview date as the visa validity is based on the med date and not the interview date. 


Also, I've included a link to a thread where other's are discussing the process and problem with getting a visa in Morocco. 


Once you get a case number, you can fill out the DS 160 online. Print the confirmation page for this once completed.  
When you have your case number, enter it here https://ceac.state.g...ker/status.aspx and it will tell you one of three things,  at NVC, In Transit, or Ready. Once your case shows "Ready" then you email the consulate and request an interview. Include your name, fiancés name, case number and that you're looking to schedule a K1 Fiance Visa interview. I heard they'll email you back within 2 weeks or so but some have heard back the same day that they sent the email. 
When they email you back they'll tell you when your appointment is. Attached will be packet 3. Includes a list of doctors to choose from for the medical , your rights and your appointment letter. At that point - just get your papers together. Usually your fiancé gets the police records in a week. Court records same day. Celabecy letter same day. And birth cert in the same day. Once you have them, then dropped them off to be translated. Picked them up in a week. Already you're at 2 weeks for gathering the fiancés paperwork. On top of that make sure your fiancé sends you their documents (I-134, proof of relationship, taxes, pay stubs, letter from employer, updated letter of intent..). 


Here is the list of panel physicians used by the U.S. Consulate General in Casablanca. Call ahead to insure they are still doing medical exams for the Embassy.

Filed: Citizen (pnd) Country: Morocco

the 2 criminal reports you will need:


 obtain a Fiche Anthropometrique and a Casier Judiciaire from the Central Police station at their place of residence. 


one of these expires in 90 days as does the Moroccan birth certificate so get them as close to the interview date as possible along with the English translations / and Casa only accepts translations from a certified translator (several in Casablanca )


At this time the list of doctors for the medical is only 2 (both in Casablanca)



as for the interview appointment ,  you are looking at  3 months to schedule it 

This is the 2nd quarter of 2019 so interview will be in 3rd quarter / that is what we are seeing in morocco


Morocco has been behind because of the high volume of K1 applications for almost a year

you need now to prepare for a good interview by talking to each other daily, if possible,  and knowing every little and big thing about each other
