Visa K-1 - Interview date France (Paris)

23 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody !

 

I am quite desperate and sad as I just found out that the interview appointments in Paris, France are in October or even later than that. I have read here that for those who received their letter/email from the embassy in June, the first available date was at the beginning of October. 

 

My case in being transferred from NVC to the embassy since July 9th, and I still haven’t heard anything... My medical exams are done, so I am just waiting for a letter or email from the embassy to book my appointment.

 

I was planning on leaving on October 12th, but it seems like it won’t happen. Does anyone know if those delays are normal and when is the first available date right now ? Should I book my interview even if I haven’t heard anything from the embassy yet ?

 

I’m desperate and so disappointed... Thank you for your help !

Delays are becoming common everywhere for various reasons.  It is never advisable to plan/book for departure until the visa is placed in your passport.  

 

For most consulates, you cannot book an interview until they have the petition.  I don't know specifics for Paris.

Hi Jorgedig,

 

Thank you for your answer. I didn’t book my plane ticket yet of course, but I read before that people were able to get an appointment in a few days, for Paris anyways, so I wasn’t really expecting that part to take the longest. I guess the waiting time just got significantly worse since then... 

 

Anyways, thank you for your message.

Hello, Adeline.

I got the instructions from the Consulate in March and got to find a slot for the interview on May 02 this year.

There in France, do you get to have the medical examinations before having scheduled the interview?

Hello CrisBR,

 

thanks for your message. 

 

Yes, in France the medical exam is valid for 6 months so I decided to take care of it before receiving the letter from the embassy, so that I can schedule my interview...

Hi payxibka,

 

the status say “Ready” but the Embassy in France says that I should receive a letter from them before scheduling the appointment. It’s been saying “Ready” for more than 3 weeks now...

That’s great you can have that taken care and could tick this one box. I wish I could have done the same. If I hear any updates about sth that may be of your interest, I’ll come back here and let you know.

I know... I’ve been tempted to schedule the interview anyways but I’m really afraid of the consequences if it’s not how I should do it...

Hello Adeline,

 

We are not at the interview stage yet, but the instructions found on the French US embassy website clearly states to wait for them to contact you before registering or scheduling anything:

 

https://fr.usembassy.gov/visas/immigrant-visas/finacee/

  1. Wait to receive notification from Embassy Paris that your file has been received from the National Visa Center (NVC).  Follow the instructions carefully.

Hope this helps!
