  1. Way to kick off the thread with happy Joyous news. So happy for you and your husband. Congratulations.🥳
  2. Well hopefully this thread will become alive again and Interviews scheduled for all. New Thread is up. we are through half the year. Man whee does the time go. https://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/766156-case-complete-dq-to-interview-august-2021/
  3. You can view my spreadsheet Case Complete to Interview Spreadsheet To update your interview date go here. Case Complete to Interview Form For New people to the thread please go Case Complete to Interview Form and input your information in the form and it will be added to the form. Everyone should be clicking on the Portal tab to visit the information for their country. If nothing is there or information needs updating. Update or add. Its up to all of us to keep this information current, relevant and helpful to others. Special Note: Different consulates or embassies have strict guidelines as to what type of bags/purses/cellphones etc can be carried in. And whether they provide any lockers (or not) for temp storage. As many travel from far away (by air/train/cars, one needs to specially know what they will not be able to take inside the consulate and where to store their personal belongings. Here are some FAQ and other tidbits that may be useful to you. Be sure to visit your countries portal and click on the Consular Information and also Consular reviews. FAQ I just called and got Documentarily Qualified (DQ'd) how long does it take to get the email as confirmation? Well it has been taking 5 to 7 days to get case complete email from the date they Case Complete. How long after Documentarily Qualified (DQ'd) will I get an interview? Okay this is the BIG mystery of NVC. How it usually goes is end of the month and first week of month they start scheduling for interviews for the that upcoming month. Since January they have been pretty consistent starting about the last 2 days of the month and finishing that following first week of next month Do I have to call for my interview date? NVC has improved greatly since March. The interview letter now comes day of schedule. So call if you want its up to you. I know someone who got interview in the middle of the month. How is that possible? Usually when you see someone pop up with an interview outside the bunch its usually the result of a cancellation or the embassy opening up a slot. Just because scheduling stops doesn't mean they filled up all slots. They may have more slots than appointments which is good. So someone gets case complete and immediately they get an interview. It happens. Remember every embassy has its own slots and schedule. Some like Mexico, Ghana are very busy with a long waiting list. Some like Yemen, well it may be a few months to get in. Iceland you get interview immediately scheduled after case Complete. I need to change our interview date what do I do? Once you receive your interview date track your casefile. Call NVC ask when your casefile left than you can follow the DHL instructions to embassy. The contact your embassy (email is best) and ask to be rescheduled later, earlier just ask. What do I need to bring to interview? When you receive your P4 Letter (Interview letter) it will have your personalized checklist of things to bring or not. It has been suggested because things have been lost between NVC and embassy to bring everything (Originals) to the interview so if they don't have at embassy you aren't delayed.It's up to you. It doesn't happen much but it does happen. How to expedite at NVC?

  9. No way to answer that. Every Embassy is under their own guidelines. Many have just stopped because of varies reasons. That's why its very important to stay on your embassy website and see what's going on.
  10. Sorry I'm late. Honestly didn't know it was a new month. LOL It's been so quite on this thread. But praying for you all that things start opening up. Praying you all stay safe and healthy. Hang in there. This thread is closed. Let's move over to the new thread.
