Waiting for interview date -Santo Domingo

16 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I filed a I-130. I’m trying to see if anyone has received an interview date from the NVC. All forms were accepted a the NVC on Feb 24. That process went very fast. I submitted my paperwork on Monday morning and by Wednesday evening it was accepted. But since then, nothing. I called the consulate in Santo Domingo and it says they are open and preforming routine services.

There is a LONG backlog of interviews. We have been approved since September and NOTHING. It appears from social media accounts that they are still interviewing couples qualified in May 2020. It has been so slow and such a Long wait!

This wait is so frustrating. We’ve celebrated being approved and all hopes are high. Every time my phone dings mon-fri, I think it’s THE email to set the interview date. Its making me crazy 😅. Waiting 90 day fiancé sometimes I wish I had did the K1 visa years ago and he would already be here.

Hey guys just an update I received an email today with the NVC approving my expedite request for an interview. I had applied for it March 10th through the public inquiry portal. And yesterday I received an email stating they were reviewing my case. And today received the approval notice!

If you don’t mind, what was the reason for expedite? Ours was refused twice

I caught Covid unfortunately. And have no family support here in New Jersey. So I explained the challenges of caring for my self and my 3 children one of which is my husband’s, while dealing the the virus and trying to get better. I submitted proof of the diagnosis and attached it to the public inquiry form. Thank God I am doing much better now.

Yes best of luck I hope you really explained the challenge your having without your spouse. They should approve you soon. He said his interview went smoothly he was interviewed twice by two different people. They were making sure he provided the same answer. And they only asked a few questions. And was approved on same day! Visa ready for pick up today. Documents he needed were passport, police certificate, marriage certificate and his birth certificate
