  1. 11 months...DQ in July of 2020 and in early June 2021 we received an interview date of June 23, 2021
  2. I created a profile, selected immigrant visa, selected location to pick up visas... I will keep trying. Thanks for your help
  3. We finally got an embassy appointment. We are trying to follow the instructions as provided in the email, following the link provided to prepare. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/Supplements/Supplements_by_Post/SDO-Santo-Domingo.html says Step 1: Register your embassy appointment and submit fingerprints. There is a link below this that says "register". It takes you to https://www.ustraveldocs.com/do/ which is a screen filled with everything visa related for the Dominican Republic. No where do I see "register embassy appointment". I used the "live support" chat...what a joke. No chat actually takes place. You wait for eternity, then when your time comes, you leave a message and they contact you by email. That email said "email rejected...fatal error". My husband and his children already had their medical exams, which all went well. My husband has the phone number to schedule his fingerprints, so hopefully he will do that today. It's just this registering the embassy appointment that is holding us up. Anyone out there know how to do this?
  4. Every time my husband comes to the U.S. for a visit he is asked for evidence of a return ticket by TSA. They are probably looking for an intent to return to his country and not stay illegally. He just shows an email confirmation and they accept it. He isn't a "resident" yet, just has a B1/B2 visa.
  5. I know how you feel, my husband and his two kids have been DQ since July 2020. Keep in mind that the Dominican Republic is second in the world in the number of immigrant visas issued per year. In 2019 more than 38,000 immigrant visas were issued in the D.R. Unfortunately I think we are in for a long wait. We can be thankful that we are further along in the process than folks just starting.
  6. I don't think you need your husband's passport or passport photo in the petition for your stepson. Too much information can cause confusion with the processors. Everything else is correct.
  7. I don't think anything has changed. I know several people have posted they scheduled appointments or know someone who has an appointment, but since they haven't updated about having interviews and such, I don't think that is the case. To my knowledge, the embassy has never completely closed as it still provides services for American citizens or emergencies. However, the embassy is not processing immigrant visas at this time, I assume that also means K-1 visas as well. I continue getting notifications of the embassy Facebook page, hoping to get updates on the visa situation. Unfortunately, I don't think anything will happen until the pandemic is under control.
