Received NVC Approval Letter - CEAC Status is Ready - What is the next step? HAVANA K-1 Case

Hello All, 

 

My fiancé is from Havana, Cuba and we received our case number letter from NVC on 01.09.20. The only instructions provided thus far are the below:

Next steps:
Go to our website http://nvc.state.gov/k1 to learn how to apply for a K visa and prepare for the visa

 

We know our case will be handled via U.S. Embassy for Cuba in Guyana and have thoroughly read their vague instructions on their website but it does not instruct whether or not a secondary instructional letter will be forthcoming with guidance as to schedule the embassy interview on our own through https://ais.usvisa-info.com/en-gy/niv or to wait for the appointment scheduling letter. 

 

There is ALOT of confusing and dated information on their website. Some that make us feel we should fill out the DS-160 form and just schedule the interview via the Guyana Official U.S. Department of State Visa Appointment Service, and other information like on this website https://gy.usembassy.gov/visas/nonimmigrant-visas/ that provide all this information with steps to then say all the way towards the bottom:

Please Note

If you are applying for a K1 (fiancé) or K3 visa, please do not use the Non-Immigrant Visa Appointment System to schedule an appointment. You will receive specific appointment scheduling instructions via letter or e-mail from the Consular Section.

 

Furthermore, I have read countless articles on this forum that are even more confusing as I understand different cases/countries vary. But I still can't seem to find my answer and I've emailed NVC and no one has responded yet (so unprofessional!!)

 

If there is anyone that has dealt with a similar Cuban K-1 Visa Case within 2019-2020, kindly please assist with guidance on the timeline and steps after receiving case number from NVC. Do we just go ahead and schedule on our own or is there a letter that we should be waiting for? 

 

THANK YOU SO MUCH!! 😊 

JH

All medical exams are done in Guyana. There are 2 doctors who can do it—once your case gets to the embassy they’ll email you and you’ll schedule an appointment with them for the interview. Once you have the interview date you’ll call or email one of the physicians on the list and tell them your interview date. They’ll give you a date within 5 or so days before the interview so you have enough time to do the exam and get your results to take with you to the embassy.

We need a little housekeeping on your end. Many of our answers are predicated on the information you supply in your profile. When we look at the left column and can't determine your timeline OR your Embassy it's hard for us to give you a factual answer. Our answers will sometimes be tailored to a specific Embassy hence the reason for you to complete your profile. If you look at the profile of others here, they have a flag for their country, so it makes it easy for us to reply as we can quickly determine their Embassy. The country that should be used is the country where the interview will take place.

 

So, if you could help yourself out and complete your profile that sure would help us out when we want to reply to your question with factual information.

 

Go to the top right of this page select your name (it's on the upper right-hand corner)>my profile>[below your picture on the right column] edit my profile. Scroll to the bottom and fill in "Immigration Info". There now we can better serve you.

 

Once you finish that then return and you will see a flag in your profile. Select it and see what wonderful information will open up for you.

 

Thanks

wow its been over two months for mine, why did someone say it take 30 to 45 days 

Extremely out of date information?

 

There have been times it was that fast, but not in a long time. From mid-2017 to mid-2018 it was generally 6-7 months from NOA1 (notice that they received and accepted your petition) to NOA2 (notice your petition was approved); it got a lot faster in 2019 (to averaging a little over 3 months), and slowed down a little at the end of the year and early this year.

Hola a todos, 

 

Mi prometido es de La Habana, Cuba y recibimos nuestra carta de número de caso de NVC el 01.09.20. Las únicas instrucciones proporcionadas hasta ahora son las siguientes:

Próximos pasos:
vaya a nuestro sitio web http: // nvc .state.gov / k1 para obtener información sobre cómo solicitar una visa K y prepararse para la visa

 

Sabemos que nuestro caso se manejará a través de la Embajada de los Estados Unidos para Cuba en Guyana y hemos leído detenidamente sus vagas instrucciones en su sitio web, pero no indica si se enviará una carta de instrucción secundaria con orientación para programar la entrevista de la embajada por nuestra cuenta. a través de  https://ais.usvisa-info.com/en-gy/niv  o para esperar la carta de programación de citas. 

 

Hay MUCHA información confusa y fechada en su sitio web. Algunos que nos hacen sentir que debemos completar el formulario DS-160 y simplemente programar la entrevista a través del Servicio de Citas de Visas del Departamento de Estado de Guyana, y otra información como en este sitio web  https://gy.usembassy.gov/visas/ visas de no inmigrantes /  que proporcionan toda esta información con pasos para luego decir todo el camino hacia la parte inferior:

Tenga en cuenta

Si está solicitando una visa K1 (prometida) o K3, no use el Sistema de citas para visas de no inmigrante para programar una cita. Recibirá instrucciones específicas de programación de citas por carta o correo electrónico de la Sección Consular.

 

Además, he leído innumerables artículos en este foro que son aún más confusos ya que entiendo que los diferentes casos / países varían. Pero todavía parece que no puedo encontrar mi respuesta y le envié un correo electrónico a NVC y nadie ha respondido todavía (¡¡tan poco profesional !!)

 

Si alguien ha tratado con un caso de visa K-1 cubano similar dentro de 2019-2020, por favor, ayúdenos con orientación sobre el cronograma y los pasos después de recibir el número de caso de NVC . ¿Seguimos adelante y programamos por nuestra cuenta o hay una carta que deberíamos estar esperando? 

 

¡¡MUCHAS GRACIAS!! 😊 

J H

Hola para los casos de cuba según me aclararon, Guyana es la que hace la cita , que se demora de 60-90 dias despues q nvc le manda la carta a la embajada. Cuando la embajada de Guyana esté listo para cojer su caso . Ahí le dara la cita y le va a dar instrucciones para llenar las forma ds.160 .  Puede ser llenada ahora o cuando ellos te lo digan pq no tiene fecha de expiración. Yo tmbn estoy esperando ya la cita. Estoy atrás de ti. Mi aprobación fue 1/15 .
