Today I got an email from NVC stating that my case completed and I got my interview date too. And it said on the email that if I have further question I need to contact the embassy. My question is, will I get any email or notification from the embassy related the interview? I appreciate if anyone can share their experience. Thank you

You will receive an email from the embassy 2-5 days prior to your interview.  They will let you know which document you are supposed to bring to the interview.  Write your name on the back of the two photos. Just in case, bring all the documents that prove your financial ability even if the embassy email does not mention it.  The consular officer may ask for some more info.  If your domicile has been already established in the US and you have sufficient amount of financial asset, no worry. Just bring some documents that show those info.

You are welcome. I had mine on Aug 6 and we moved into the States three weeks ago. At the interview, the CO did not ask me anything about finance/insurance/asset at all though I had all those financial documents with me just in case. 

 

However, there seem to be several people who were asked to submit more info. You might want to do your homework about your insurance plan...at least, print out some policies you are thinking of and be ready to show it to the officer and tell him/her that you will get the insurance on Day 1 you arrive in the States.  I brought a bank balance statement of mine (beneficiary) just in case, though I did not need to show it.  

 

I read in another blog a couple of days ago that a graduate student petitioner and the beneficiary's visa was refused because the CO questioned their financial capability.

Thank you. Are you fly out with your spouse from Japan?

 

My husband is living in the US, the plan is he will add me in his insurance, so i have a copy of his insurance card and bring the print out to the interview just in case. yeah, i have my bank balance statement already just in case they ask for that.

 We both lived in Japan together...so we left there together too.

As to insurance, in our case, we could not find any insurance plan that would allow myself to be added to my partner's, because  (1) I was not physically in the US yet (2) I did not have my visa yet.  I was lucky that the CO did not even ask about that.

i see. yeah, in my case because my husband already settle there. hopefully they won't ask me for that too, lol.

 

btw, when you fly to the US is there any restrictions when you arrive there? there is no need to have PCR check up before leaving for Japan right?

There was no PCR test required upon entry into the US.  However, on my flight, each single passenger onboard was asked if he/she had visited UK, Ireland, EU countries, China, etc within 14 days of the flight --- if so, they were required to submit a paper.

 

As you may know, each state has different requirement as to quarantine.  You might want to check the latest info here:   https://www.greyhound.com/en/help-and-info/travel-info/travel-guidance

We had a direct flight into LAX since we had two dogs traveling with us.  If you have a layover, you might want to check what your first port of entry's policy is.  On our flight, the onboard announcement said that each passenger should observe a 14-day self quarantine.

thank you again for your information. ill probably will have a layover in LAX (because usually that is the most convenient to get to PHX).
