After Letter from US Embassy confusion.

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I thought I was prepared in that the letter they send will provide instructions. As it turns out they arent so much instructions at all.

 

It gives a link to go to;

https://uk.usembassy.gov/visas/fiancee-2/applying-for-the-visa

 

However on this, it says I need a DS260 reference number when I attempt to fill out the details to grab an appointment? 

I selected the following 

 

I have received a letter/email from the consular section with instructions to schedule an immigrant visa appointment

 

We did a bunch of research prior but nothing came up about any of this..

Can somebody experienced tell me exactly what I need to do at this point, we are stuck in the overwhelming confusion...

 

This is for the step, registering with the Courier service. After this comes a DS160 sheduling, step 3 is To gather the supporting documents 4 is sheduling the interview and then 5 is listed as the medical exam?

 

So far we have just completed all the steps to receive the NOA2 and were awaiting the further instruction. 

I know I need to start gathering things like an ACRO and my fiancee is required to grab affidavit of support and all those little bits but this DS160 and everything required after receiving the letter is overwhelmingly confusing, I thought it would be just following instructions to book 2 appointments, a medical and an interview and bring everything required to the interview.

We thought I would need to book the medical before even booking the appointment? 

 

As you can tell I'm totally confused and overwhelmed.. I'm sorry if I am just being stupid and it's actually very simple.

The London embassy instructions on the website changed about a month ago. Totally screwed up!

 

I would suggest::

  1. Submit DS-160.
  2. Gather documents. (for interview as well as documents for medical appointment). You don't want a looming appointment if you hit a hiccup and won't have what you need for the appointment. 
  3. Book your medical date by calling the clinic. 020 7486 7822. 
  4. Book the courier, pay, and pick an interview date all at the same time on https://ais.usvisa-info.com/en-gb/iv. Select “I have received a letter from the consular section with instructions to register or schedule a K visa appointment”. Leave 10-14 days between medical and interview for best results.
  5. Attend your medical.
  6. Attend your interview.

 

Gather documents step is important. See lists:

https://uk.usembassy.gov/visas/fiancee-2/required-documents/

http://www.visamedicals.co.uk/us-bring.htm

 

And do read all the information and FAQs on the embassy website instructions. Don't assume you picked up everything you need to know in the K1 threads. Each embassy does things in their own way.

Thanks @Wuozopo !

This us good to know. I knew I'd read people booking medicals first with just their number but the site wouldn't let us to anything like picking courier and paying fee and picking interview date.

 

Our case just barely missed the last shipment so we dont have the emailed letter from the consolate yet and never got an email from the NVC about our number- but I called and got it. 

 

We need to book my fiance's medical out about a month because he has to fly into London from Belfast so I know we'd have something by then. But just to reaffirm we dont have to have paid the embassy fee before the medical, right?

Correct. The medical appointment and paying the visa fee are separate things. 

When your case gets to London and they are ready for you, the interview booking site will allow you in. It's too early now.
