Hello,

 

I just received my NOA 2 and will have my interview in Paris as well.

My attorney checked and the next K1 visa interview avaibility is in december at the Paris Embassy...

 

 

Hi, 

 

thanks for you help ! My interview is on December 18th yes... I scheduled it even though I didn’t receive any letter or email from the embassy.

 

Did your attorney say it’s okay to do that ? When are you going to schedule your interview ?

Hi there... I just received the email from NVC... Do you know how i could schedule my appointment... I tried on the US website but i got this message :

Le numéro de dossier de visa d'immigrant fourni n'est pas prêt pour un rendez-vous. Si vous n'avez pas reçu de lettre/ email de rendez-vous du Centre national des visas (NVC), vous pouvez vérifier le statut de votre cas IV sur http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/immigrate/nvc.html.

Si vous avez reçu une lettre/ email de nominationl de la NVC ou une lettre/ email d’instruction de la section consulaire vous dirigeant vers ce site Web pour prendre rendez-vous, veuillez vous assurer d’entrer correctement votre numéro de dossier IV.

 

Or I already got the email from NVC... maybe i made a mistake... Could you help me getting some advice and the way you did? Thanks...

Hi !

 

Of course, I will try and help the best I can...

 

Like I said, I did not receive any letter or email from the embassy in Paris (not yet anyways).

 

The last document we received (my fiancé received it) was an email from NVC dated July 9th, with a case number (if you are French it should stare with PRS +10 numbers). But that email also told us to wait until the embassy sends me a letter or email to schedule my interview. I waited 4 weeks and still didn’t receive anything, so my attorney in California advised me to book the interview anyways...

 

On the e-mail you received from NVC, is there a case number ? When you check you visa status in the ceac website, what does it say ? If you just received the email from NVC, maybe just wait a couple days or until the ceac website says « Ready ».

 

But I’m not sure that scheduling the interview without receiving the letter/email from the embassy was a good idea after all, I will call the embassy tomorrow to make sure, but it’s too late for me...

Thank you so much... even if it sounds weird to write each other in English lol...

When we check our status it says "in Transit"... That's why maybe i'm not allowed to schedule our appointment... But anyway, thank you again for your help and hope i could help you too.

Haha it kind of feels weird to write in English indeed !

 

If it says « in transit », then I definitely think you should at least wait until the status says « Ready » (see my picture). It probably means that the embassy hasn’t received your case yet. That’s my guess but I’m not sure. 

 

You actually did help me a lot too because it means that maybe it is not so bad for me that I already scheduled my interview without a letter/email from the embassy. So thank you !

 

Best of luck for everything :)

Hi Adeline,

 

Maybe you actually did the right thing by scheduling your interview :)

Would you mind keeping us posted on this? I think it would help us all to know if we can go ahead and book the interview once our status says "ready", and not wait for a letter/email.

Thank you so much and bonne chance!

Hi Keyo !

 

Apparently and from what I have heard from someone else,  once you have a case number, you have to at least wait for your status to change from "In Transit" to "Ready" on the ceac's website, otherwise you won't be able to schedule your interview and you will get an error message. My case status has been saying "Ready" for 4 weeks and I was able to book my appointment. That is for France only though, it may be different for other countries and depending on your situation.

 

I hope that helps ! I will let you know if I hear anything or if my interview gets cancelled (but I really hope not !)

 

Good luck everybody !

Hi Adeline,

 

I was wondering if you would follow up on this topic? Did you end up receiving and email (or mail) from the embassy? If so, did it have any consequence on the interview date you had already scheduled?

I am at that stage now where our case status is "ready" and it would be nice to go ahead and pick an interview date.

Your feedback will be much appreciated :)

Thank you

Hi !

 

Sorry about the late answer, I’ve been away and really busy lately !

 

My fiancé ended up receiving an email a few days after I scheduled my interview online. I had absolutely no impact on my interview which was on August 21st and I got approved ! :) 

 

If the case says “Ready”, I would schedule the interview online, and do the medical exams, the DS-160, photos, etc... Careful though, the medical exam is only valid for 6 months in France. 

 

I hope this helps, and best of luck to all of you !
