Is there a way to expedite interview?

Does anyone know if there's ANY way to expedite the Casablanca consulate interview for fiancé visa? Maybe a lawyer, mayor, or someone who can get into contact with them somehow? Because I know they don't look at the applicants messages.

there is no way and your case is going smoothly now as you just applied end of April and NOA1 is dated beginning of May

be more concerned with the interview and preparing the Moroccan with good knowlegde of the USC and life here

at this point a lawyer can do no good as all they do is mail the application in and you are past that stage 

What Mayor?   even a US Senator has no power over immigration and the embassy

Congress makes the laws for immigration (or is suppose to) but immigration is not funded by the federal budget/  it is solely paid for by our fees leaving it free from control of other enities

 

Also the approval rates for K1 still is not good in Morocco so be well prepared for the interview

be aware you may go into long AP if approved

and be ready to go and marry if denied

Best to you both

Unless you( U.S citizens) has valid reason based on this link from USCIS, then you can. If not, please stay in the line and wait for your turn to come. Embassy still have another thousand case need to be done, so you need to wait.

There is a way to expedite. But you have to have a reason. It is not done simply because you asked. Most expedites are for medical emergencies for example.

 

Also, outside people like Senators and Lawyers can't interfere with the process. It would open up possibilities of bribery.

What is your reason for seeking an expedite?

It seems that the Casablanca consulate is about 4 months behind in scheduling interviews at this time. Everyone else is waiting too, I know it is tough and frustrating. People have been waiting for interviews since April, before you even received your NOA1.

 

They don't reply to all of the requests for interviews, they just send an automated message. 

 

Unless you have documented reason for expedite, you still have a bit of a wait to go. Hopefully things will speed up at the consulate soon.

My mom has terminal cancer. I wasnt worried until I saw our interview date being probably 2020. I just wanted my mom to see me get married. I'm not sure if she will make it that long.

That would be based on the relationship between her and your fiancee, their presence in each others lives.

Unfortunately, that does not qualify as a reason.  Even if it did, there is no way to expedite the AP usually seen for MENA males.

Hello! When I wrote my congresswoman, I received info about expedition and was told the only qualifying events would be a death, serious illness or threat of violence. To obtain the expedition, you'd have to jump through even more hoops. I was emailing daily for awhile and maybe they got tired of it an responded. Shortly after all the emailing, my fiance got a call from the embassy scheduling his second interview. All I can say it just keep at it. It's frustrating, it's demoralizing and it causes strains on your whole life, but in the end it will be worth it. My fiance didn't get his visa until 13 days after he was approved and he had to demand to speak to someone at the embassy (via a security guard who was very helpful thank god). The embassy said they sent it to the Aramex location, then Aramex saying they didn't have it. My fiance talked to someone inside the embassy who confirmed his passport was at the Aramex location. He went back to Aramex (mind you he'd been going back and forth a few times that day) and they lady at the Aramex location was gone for about 15 minutes. She brings up the passport, (it's in a plastic see through bag along with the packet of papers in a sealed envelope only to be opened by DHS in the US) and he noticed that the passport looked old and torn up. His passport was new. He opened the plastic bag and the passport was for an African woman!!!!! Thank god he opened the package there! The woman at Aramex looked like she was going to barf. She went back to the back and miraculously "found" my fiance's package. Needless to say, it's been a journey. We have his flight booked and he'll be here in a few weeks. Don't give up. Just keep at it. I'm happy to share any details about my journey to you. Direct message me and I'll give you my email.
