Interview date scheduled but out of the country

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi VJ Community ,

I just checked my case status online and it said that on July 22,2019 they scheduled an interview for my wife and that we should be expecting a letter in the mail in the next few days.

I receive email notifications images of what's coming in the mail to me through the post office , I checked my email and sure enough there is a USCIS letter addressed to my wife that should be arriving today or on Monday .

My wife is in Russia visiting her mother who is very ill, my wife has a return flight to the USA on August 24,2019.

Is there a chance that USCIS has scheduled the interview before Aug. 24 ?

Should I tell my wife to change her return date back to the United States as soon as possible?

Do you think we have enough time ? 

I really don't want to hurry my wife back because of her mother who is not doing good, want to give her as much time with her mother but I also don't want to risk missing the interview .

Thoughts or suggestions ?

You can try to reschedule the interview if needed.......just write a letter explaining the circumstances.....

The pdf copy of the interview appt should show up on your acct anytime soon. Mine showed up after 3 days.  The mailed in copy came after 7 days. I am assuming for all local service centers (and maybe I'm wrong), but at least for the JAX Service Center, the interview appt date is 33-36 days after online notification (interview dates though were mostly at 35-36 days).  So just wait for that appt letter before you decide if you want to re schedule or not. Good luck!

Hopefully it will all work out for you, your wife and her mother. You are going to have to play it by ear. If at all possible, try to make it to your first assigned visa interview appointment. There are numerous stories in this forum's thread of folks having to contact the USCIS appointment mavens to reschedule appointments, only to encounter significant further delays, some steps having to be repeated, and even less convenient rescheduled appointment times. A lot may depends on the workload of your local USCIS office for rescheduling availability.

 

Good luck on your immigration journey.
