Pleas when your case status says ready do you have to:  

1.Fill the DS 160 forms and wait for P3 from the embassy or

 2. Fill the DS 160 forms, pay the visa fees, schedule your interview and wait for p3.Thanks

You can do it either way.

I think people have found the p3 for their country on here or emailed the embassy for it.

We did number two because it takes a while to get a interview with our embassy. We also was able to get the p3 from here as well. I emailed the embassy and got a auto reply.


Hope this helps. I also check the sub forum for your country

Am not sure. But based on what I've read on vj packet 3 tells you instructions on how to schedule appointments,etc. Meaning they're ready to interview the applicant. Packet 4 I heard is the confirmation of your appointment. However don't take my word for it.. Lol still waiting for packet 3 (so I can't tell if this information is true) which is probably the hardest wait for me. It's really frustrating 😃

I suspect that you would likely find more responses to similar questions as yours in the Sub-Saharan Regional Forum: https://www.visajourney.com/forums/forum/89-africa-sub-saharan/ .  Each interviewing embassy/consulate may have different procedures/protocols to follow in order to get the various packets. Folks in the regional forum, would like have more focused responses.


Good luck on your immigration journey.

We finally were able to schedule interviews middle of October and our packets were sent to the embassy in Ghana end of August/beginning of September.

We have not received packet 3/4 yet.

Maybe the following information will help get  you on your way to a successful interview.


Ghana P3



VJ Thread for those processing in Ghana where you can ask questions of others



Average wait time from when embassy receives the application is 6-8 weeks.  Average time to be sent to Ghanaian embassy from NVC is 1 month.  Therefore applicants should expect 3 months from NVC till receiving the P3.  Interview slots are very limited for this embassy, so it is advised for applicants that believe that they are a "strong applicant" to proactively schedule their interview date three months out to secure a date and time.
