221g and petition expiration

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey, 

could any one tell me if we need to worry about petition expiration after interview whilst waiting to send in documents for 221g? 

Our petition is due to expire on July 18th, I had my interview on June 20th and was issued a 221g requesting more evidence.  However we’ve been advised the papers requested will not be here in time.  Do I need to worry about this date? Or does the 221g date replace that?

We are in the same situation my fiance contacted the embassy and told him that the documents must be before the medical check expires .. 6 months but you have to send the documents in time to process them in our case the interview was on May 13 we have until October 1 the medical check is due in our case on November 8 ... but I advise you to call or write to the embassy of your country pq all work different ... good luck

Generally, if an approved visa petition expires while at the interviewing embassy/consulate, the CO has, at their discretion, the ability to extend the validity date of the visa petitions if they expire prior to processing. Suggest that you contact the CO at the embassy/consulate and inquire about extended the validity date.

Based on London experience, I would say don't worry about it. You interviewed with time to spare. 

Their website:

If the visa interview is scheduled more than 4 months from the date the petition is approved, the applicant is required to provide an original letter from the petitioner, confirming that they both remain legally free to marry and that they intend to do so within 90 days of the applicant’s entry to the United States.  There is no requirement that the letter be notarized.
