Hi, I am in the k1 process I've heard conflicting info regarding when to fill out ds160..do we fill it out when you go "in transit" to embassy? Or do you wait until you/ your fiance receive communication from the embassy via email/mail?

Doesn't matter other than there is no real urgency to get it done much before your case shows "ready."

Different consulate, different process.  If we would have waited for the consulate to contact us, we'd still be waiting.   Manila has everything online.

Question (1) What we fill the DS-160 when it shows ready and you couldn't an earlier date for the medicals... And you already have a close interview date? 

Question (2) how soon will the packet 3 get to the beneficiary after the case becomes ready on NVC website

I'm not familiar with your consulates process

Hello anyone?  :help:

 

My responsible consulate is Frankfurt, Germany... We are November 30 2020 filer. Still awaiting NOA2.  But hoping a reply will come by Aug 2 as per notice by USCIS.

 

Questions after receiving a NOA2 from USCIS:

  • What is the appropriate action to do? 
  • When to complete and finish a DS160?
  • When do I start compiling documents, like affidavit of support, a new letter of intent for marriage, copies and original docs like birth certificate? Tons listed on the site to compile. :( I am the beneficiary.  
  • Who compiles the documents?  Me or my Petitioner?
  • Will these be submitted to the Embassy together with the DS160?

 

I understand that the DS 160 can wait a bit...I am just concern when is the best time to prepare and compile the documents so as not to incur more delay in submitting thereby getting an interview date?  

 

I would appreciate a reply from this supportive community.  Thank you.

Wait for your case status on CEAC to be "Ready".

Can't attach documents to the DS-160.  Beneficiary will need to hand-carry the documents to the interview.
