Casa is finally starting to schedule 2nd interviews for spouse visas who need to come in as the medical exam part has expired or is about to.  Still don't know how they will handle the people who cities are closed down because the virus cases have increased

Are you saying these are people who had one interview already, but visas were not issued?  They are asking for a new medical and a new interview?

they are scheduling the spouses to come in with the new medical exam forms/ I am only guessing they may or may not interview depending on strength of each case

I’m interested to see how the Casablanca consulate will handle the backlogs when they finally do reopen. Im expecting at least a year delay considering how behind they were even before Covid-19. It’s so sad realizing my fiancé most likely won’t be here until 2022 even tho we submitted our I-129f in March. However, they have to eventually do something to pick up the pace- or there will be a permanent 1+ year wait to get an interview for K-1 and CR-1 visas coming out of the NVC.

Much will depend on the November elections (sorry to say)

But if you are able to meet and marry,  it may go a lot faster

They will not "pick up the pace" until it is safe to do so for full Embassy staff and the applicants who need to get to the Embassy -- whether the wait time increases or continues to remain high or not.  Just like other people everywhere, Embassy staff and their family members are falling ill, and some dying, with COVID.  Until there is better control of the spread, the pace will not increase.

Obviously I know this- I’m referring to well into the future. The Casablanca consulate has been backlogged for years for a multitude of reasons, COVID aside. That will eventually need to be resolved, and hopefully was addressed in the most recent OIG audit.

This from from an embassy email today-

 

“Information for Current Immigrant Visa Packet Holders

and Pending Immigrant Visa Applicants

If you have already travelled to the United States please disregard this message.

Thank you for your continued patience during these unprecedented times.  We wish to assure you that U.S. Mission to Morocco continues to work with the Government of Morocco and the Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs to explore all options for reopening visa processing and travel.

At this time, the Government of Morocco’s “Health State of Emergency” has been extended until at least September 10 as part of its emergency measures to limit the spread of COVID-19.  As part of this measure commercial flights in and out of Morocco remain limited to special operations flights sanctioned by the Government of Morocco.

At this time, the Consulate General in Casablanca has begun to reschedule a limited number of applicants whose appointments were previously cancelled due to the Health State of Emergency.  At this time please follow the instructions below if you are a holder of a CR1/IR1/CR2/IR2/IR4 application.

For Immigrant Visa Applicants Whose Appointments were Cancelled

You must complete the following steps before coming to your interview appointment at the Consulate:”

You are spouse visa so you wait for NVC and embassy to schedule the interview and they have many ahead of you from the ones that have been cancelled because of the covid

don't expect it to happen fast

you, the Moroccan will not get the notice/ the petitioner will receive the notice of interview in Casa and what originals are required

the petitioner will be letter (or email) with all information and have to pass it on to you 

 

please create a timeline on your profile and update it to help you and others in the future/ these timelines is how the stats are created on this site
