Is a 2nd Interview Normal?

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

1st interview date was May 2, 2018. We were issued a 221(g) for some items that were particularly burdensome to obtain (and we had thought successfully petitioned to be waived by the NVC).

By the time we sent everything back for the 221(g) on December 13, 2018, the medical was apparently now out of date.

We were informed of this March 11, 2019.


It took about a month to get scheduled for a medical, and about another month for the embassy to get all the paperwork.


Finally the status tracker on the CEAC site changed this morning to "Ready" and says that "Your case is ready for your interview when scheduled at the U.S. Consular section...."


1. Is that normal for them to call you back for a 2nd interview after a 221(g)?

2. They requested her passport with her updated medical and the embassy is in a different country. If they schedule an interview too soon, she will not be able to have it back in time to travel...

3. If there is going to be a 2nd interview... what sort of problems should we be aware of for other documents that may be too aged now? (local background check? Petitioner's financials? etc...??)


Has anybody else encountered this?
