Writing here to get some peace of mind and because I don't know what to do at this point. I received my Packet 3 on the 10th May with a checklist and instructions on how to fill out a DS-160. I was told I had to mail back the DS-160 confirmation page and a signed and completed checklist. It took me a while to get all the documents together, plus medical examination, so I send everything to Brussels almost a month later, on 6th June.
I made the mistake to check other people's timelines that went through Brussels as well and I saw that most people heard back from the embassy 7 to 10 calendar days after they had sent back their Packet 3. I still haven't heard anything from them and now I'm worried that either my envelope got lost on the way to them or that the appointment letter got lost somehow... I'm also worried I might have done something wrong or not completed things correctly. I emailed them with name, case number, etc. but have received no reply so far. I found a link though that allows me to register an appointment date to pay the fee, but obviously I can't do anything with that unless I receive the actual letter.
Is it extraordinary they haven't sent me anything yet? I'm just worried because my I-129f petition will expire in July, so I'm nervous about this taking so "long" in comparison to other people's applications. Has anyone that's gone through Brussels been in a similar situation? What do I do if I never receive this appointment letter? Hope someone can help. Maybe I'm just worrying too much...
