Checking for Appointments

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I would email your embassy back at the e-mail address they sent you the P3 from.  At least in our embassy (Argentina), when you email them asking for appointments (when nothing is available), they make additional dates available or email you back with options.  It is a worth a try to do it with yours as well.

Thanks.  What is the P3 form?  When I tried to check for appointments again later, the system locked us out, saying we are blocked for 72 hours 😐  "temporarilly suspended" They really make this a lot more difficult than it should be....

How often should we check for appointments?   Once a day? Filled out the DS-160, got manual approval from consulate, but no appointments available now....

There are a few WhatsApp groups of Russian fiancees who take turns checking for interview spot availability in Moscow to try and get around the lockout rules.

 

I don't know how it looks now; I know there weren't any K-1 interviews last December, then a bunch in Jan and Feb (when Anastasia had hers) and then none in March.

It's ridiculous that the site has a lock out,  I've paid all their fees, filled out their forms, and in general jumped through all the hoops.   It shouldn't be a fight to get an appointment, especially when there are so few.. 😣 Thanks for the info, once I can enter the site again I will check.  My fiance found a group like that on Telegram.

My fiance and I were lucky enough to get an appointment next week, but we had a lockout two times! It was so unbelievably frustrating. I would advise against checking the website at all and just calling them. One of the operators my fiance talked to was really nice and she said he could call to continue to check the availability. Just try to stay off the website at all costs. My fiance tried to log in one time after the first lockout and it immediately locked him out again.

Are we all seeing the same thing?   I can see a calendar with quite a few dates available.  I click on a date and it drops down many, many time-slots for that day... but when I choose one it then says "There are currently no appointments available. Please press the Back button and choose a new OFC appointment Date."

 

No matter how which date I choose, this is the message I get.   Is this normal?

 

You're advising we call.  Could you tell me who you are calling and would you mind sharing the phone number please?

We were able to get an appointment.  As soon as we were "unlocked",  a calendar with a bunch of dates showed up, from the 6-13, we chose the 13.   Did not experiece the "no appoinments available" with the caldendar.     As for the link to the Telegram group, I don't know how to send it.  It was Visa in USA (Gofortravel)  "Visa in USA" written in Russian
