We are having some difficulty finding an interview date for the London embassy - is there a time limit within which you have to book a date ?

 

Thanks in advance.

One year. But if you’ve had the medical already, then it expires at the six month mark and would need an update.

Thanks - from what date does the clock start running ?

The clock starts ticking from the date of the medical interview as the embassy sets your visa to expire 6 months from the date of your medical.

Thanks, I get the 6 month limit timeline it’s really a question of when that 12 month timeline for arranging the interview begins.

Ah, got it. I'm not sure if you filed via DCF as you haven't filled out a timeline, but if you take a look here https://uk.usembassy.gov/information-for-nonimmigrant-visa-applicants-following-the-coronavirus-covid-19-outbreak/ it says "Applicants are typically given 12 months in which to apply for the visa, starting from the date on which the Embassy’s Immigrant Visa Unit writes to them with instructions about the status of their case."
