My K1 application is at the stage where the ceac status says "READY" and I have checked with the US Embassy in Singapore and apparently they have received the case but I have not received my Packet 3 yet (it's been 10 days since they have received the case from NVC). However, I have already completed the DS-160 online and paid the MRV fee. I am hoping to get the interview done within the next few weeks and get my passport as well because I will be starting grad school in the US on the 1st of July! (It is 1 June today). My question is: will there be any repercussions if I were to drop the US embassy in Singapore an email asking if they could expedite my visa processing because I am really hoping to be able to start school this year? Missing the start of the first week of school would mean that I have to postpone my studies to July 2020!!!
Also, I read that I should not have done my DS 160 and paid the fees before I receive Packet 3 but I've done both of that- what does this mean?
Thank you for any help/advice!
