Hello Eveyone,

I was wondering if anyone know anything about why its taking forever to schedule an interview in Casablanca Morocco for K1 visa.

my approved case left the NVC beginning of April 2019, CEAC status has been in READY since beginning of april as well, and neither my fiance or I have received any emails or calls from the Casablanca consulate.

i haven't emailed or called the embassy just yet hoping everyday that it will be the day they will contact me.

should I email them or call them, i have seen 1 person so far who was a week ahead of me and they already had their interview 6/4/19.

any help/info would be greatly appreciated.

thanks in advance.

K1 scheduling is applicant driven.   You need to be proactive

You need to email IVCasablanca@state.gov and request the interview. They might not respond right away, but keep emailing every few days until you get an actual response (and not just the automated one you will get after each email).

In your email, include the full names of the beneficiary and petitioner, both of your dates of birth, and your NVC case number and USCIS receipt number. 

 

The seem to be very backlogged at the moment. There are several people still waiting for interview dates with NOA2 approvals from February and March. 

 

You can try calling them, but they rarely answer the phone. If they do answer, they will likely just tell you to wait or email them.

Read some of the previous posts in the Moroccan portal

 

this was posted a few days ago

 

"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." 

Regards,

 

morocco is about 3 months from time they receive packet till the interview

ordinarily you would schedule the interview but things have changed with the huge amount of applications

so,  the embassy now schedules

 

not proactive    just wait

and expect to receive the ds 5535 to fill out

@adil-rafa that is still the exact same generic email that I received when going though the K-1 process and scheduling our interview in July 2017. "Several months behind" language and all. I don't think the interview scheduling process has changed at all. Either way, it doesn't hurt to email them, but really all anyone can do is wait.

The Casablanca consulate has always (at least since 2016) scheduled the K-1 interviews. The email to them just sometimes can speed up the process. You could also just wait it out and wait for them to contact you, but people have found that emailing them lead to interviews being scheduled quicker. But regardless they were always the ones who set the date and time.
