Scheduled ASC online, no I-797C received?

Hi all -- My fiance scheduled his ASC appointment himself online alongside his interview. He never received a I-797C related to it and we thought that was normal because he has an email receipt showing what date and time the scheduled appointment is, along with his confirmed payment. His ASC appointment is in 2 hours and we're now really confused/scrambling to try to figure out what happened. 

 

I've read online that other people have been able to contact USCIS to get a PDF of their I-797C biometrics letter, but that's about a biometrics letter that ASSIGNS you an appointment, not about one that confirms an appointment you scheduled yourself online. Please help, we're a bit panicked lol.

 

Is it normal to not have a I-797C if you schedule the appointment yourself? Is this a Brazil-specific thing? I can't get through to USCIS on the phone (shocker), so I'm hoping for some clarification from you guys. Thank you so much!

It's confusing to us too. :( When he scheduled his interview online, the site also had him schedule his ASC appointment. He scheduled it for the day before the interview in the same city the interview is in (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) and received an email confirmation of both the interview date and the ASC date. I can't find anything online about this happening for other people, so I'm wondering if it's specific to how the Rio Embassy is handling things or something like that...

I797 is a USCIS form.  You are dealing with Rio consulate not the USCIS. You will not be getting a i797. A few consulates have separate biometric appointments, Rio is one.

News to me that K-1s get biometrics before being issued a visa.  TIL.

This is the normal process for the Rio consulate, biometrics are scheduled via ASC by the beneficiary prior to the visa interview.  No I-797, just an email to confirm the appointment.  Good luck with the visa interview!
