What do you mean you couldn't change your appointment date?  Have you already contacted the consulate to re-schedule your interview?

It said that first interview must attend

 

If you attend the interview before your ban ends, expect to be refused a visa or for the consul officer to ask you to submit a waiver.  I recommend you contact the consulate and ask for your interview to be re-scheduled after you've served your ban.

What doest it actually say? A typical interview letter will say one must attend the interview for sure.

Reschedule as mentioned by @ChancyUnless you want to be denied and have to hustle a lot.

 

When exactly is this appointment and when exactly does your ban end?


Immigration journey is not: fast, for the faint at heart, easy, cheap, for the impatient nor right away. If more than 50% of this applies to you, best get off the bus.

One of your previous posts says you left the US in 2012.

Reschedule for after ban has been served.


Profile pic - Rainbow Tower of the Hilton Hawaiian Village - Waikiki, Honolulu, Hawaii.

Why this for the profile pic?  Often in movies and on TV when they show Hawaii they show this beach/view. So, instead of doing Kauai or some other locale, we decided to do here, so that whenever some show shows Hawaii and this view, we will see where we were married.
