Hey guys so I received the I-797c in the mail today. All it said was that I paid and to verify my personal information above. Isn’t this where they are supposed to tell me what’s next or what else I have to submit? I feel like I’m missing something.

It's just a receipt.  Now, you wait for about half a year for them to get to your file and approve the I-129f.

They will not tell you what is next or what you have to submit.  You need to research and own the process if you are doing this without a lawyer.  It's your responsibility to know what is next.

Have you read the Guides on VJ?

:time:This would help as we don't know which I-797 you received. I'm assuming the NOA1. If that is the case then you wait 30-120 days for the approval of your I-129f which will be the NOA2. Then there are some things you could be doing in the meantime. Be sure to have your documents translated into English for the interview. If you are fluent in both languages you can translate yourself.


Just put this statement on it and sign:


CERTIFICATE OF TRANSLATION I, ___________________________, am competent to translate from ________________ into English, and certify that the translation of __________________________________ is true and accurate to the best of my abilities. ______________________________ Signature of Translator

Name of Translator _____________________________ Address of Translator ____________________________ Telephone Number of Translator ____________________________.




Once you get a case number, you can fill out the DS 160 online. Print the confirmation page for this once completed. 


When you have your case number, enter it here https://ceac.state.g...ker/status.aspx and it will tell you one of three things,  at NVC, In Transit, or Ready. Once your case shows "Ready" then you email the consulate and request an interview. Include your name, fiancés name, case number and that you're looking to schedule a K1 Fiance Visa interview. I heard they'll email you back within 2 weeks or so but some have heard back the same day that they sent the email. 


When they email you back they'll tell you when your appointment is. Attached will be packet 3. Includes a list of doctors to choose from for the medical , your rights and your appointment letter. At that point - just get your papers together. Usually your fiancé gets the police records in a week. Court records same day. Celabecy letter same day. And birth cert in the same day. Once you have them, then dropped them off to be translated. Picked them up in a week. Already you're at 2 weeks for gathering the fiancés paperwork. On top of that make sure your fiancé sends you their documents (I-134, proof of relationship, taxes, pay stubs, letter from employer, updated letter of intent..).








Here is the list of panel physicians used by the U.S. Consulate General in Casablanca. Call ahead to insure they are still doing medical exams for the Embassy.




You cannot schedule dr appointment till you receive notice from embassy it is taking about 3 months of waiting to be able to schedule any appointments. Do not do the medical too soon as the travel time must be completed within 6 months from date of that medical. You will also need to complete 2 criminal reports (one of which expires in 90 days)  Obtain a Fiche Anthropometrique and a Casier Judiciaire from the Central Police station at their place of residence.



All documents submitted in support of an application or petition must include complete translation into English. In addition, there must be a certification from the translator indicating that the translation is complete and accurate and attesting to his or her competence as a translator. See8 CFR 103.2(b)(3) .
