  1. Sorry to hear about the delay. Good that they kept the pasport. Do you know if they also hold off on issuing visa to others inside the Tokyo embassy the same day too?
  2. Thanks for the info. Very helpful. yeah, I’m aware of the Days in the USA blog as well. The injunctions issue did create some issues for people who were interviewed that day. Good luck with the interview!
  3. Hi @vj-nv-55 that’s good news. please do us posted about your Interview on Aug 6th in Tokyo. We are scheduled for next week Aug 14th in Tokyo. By the way, did the embassy email you ahead of time about what docs/info to bring with you for the interview?
  4. Hi @magicmooly you can check the required document list from the NVC/DOS web site specific to the US Embassy in Thailand. Assuming the interview will take place at the US Embassy Bangkok - here is the link to see the Pre-Interview Checklist https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/Supplements/Supplements_by_Post/BNK-Bangkok.html Pre-Interview Checklist Please use the list below to determine the items that EACH applicant must bring to the immigrant visa interview: A copy of your NVC interview letter (does not apply to Diversity Visa, fiancé(e), adoptive, or asylee/refugee applicants). Unexpired passport valid for eight (8) months beyond your intended date of entry to the United States and a photocopy of the biographic page (where your name and photo are located). Your immigrant visa will be issued in the name which appears on your passport, not on your immigrant petition. Discrepancies should be corrected prior to your interview. Two (2) color passport-size photographs of each person applying for a visa (5 cm x 5 cm). Please see photo requirements. Confirmation page from the Form DS-260 Application for an Immigrant Visa you submitted online at ceac.state.gov/iv. Confirmation page from your online registration of a delivery address for returning your passport and documents after the interview (see Step 1). Your original birth certificate, English translation, and a photocopy. If an official birth certificate is not obtainable, applicants should submit a Certificate of Birthplace, their Household Registration, and their Thai National ID card as secondary evidence. Individuals born outside of Thailand should refer to their country of birthplace in the Reciprocity Schedule to determine acceptable secondary identity evidence. If your name does not match your birth certificate, submit a Name Change Certificate(s), English translation, and photocopy. Medical examination results in a sealed envelope (if the physician gives you these results). Original or certified copies of birth certificates for all children of the principal applicant (even if he or she is not accompanying). Applicants who fall into any category listed in italics below should bring these additional documents: For family-based visa applications: The appropriate Form I-864 Affidavit of Support for each financial sponsor along with a photocopy of the sponsor’s IRS transcript or most recent U.S. federal income tax return, and any relevant W-2s.

If you are older than 16 years of age: The original police certificate from your country of current residence and countries of previous residence. If these three items are all true, you must bring a more recent police certificate to the interview: You are older than 16 years; You obtained a police certificate and submitted it to NVC more than one year ago; and You still live in the country that issued the police certificate. For employment-based visa applications: Letter from your U.S. employer dated less than one month ago.

For all minor children traveling with a parent applicant or following later: Official grant of permanent custody for minor children is required for all children under 18 years old.
  5. Thanks @islanderfever Good luck with your wife's interview!
  6. Sorry to hear that. The embassy website states the following and K1 visa is indeed not being processed at the moment. Wonder why they even scheduled the emergency interview if they know they would not process it...Did you or your fiancée try to contact congressman or senator for help? "UPDATE: As of June 22, 2020, most immigrant visa categories (with the exception of IR-1, IR-2, CR-1, and CR-2), as well as the nonimmigrant visa categories H-1B, H-2B, L, and several J visa categories (au pair, intern, trainee, teacher, camp counselor, and summer work travel), are suspended through December 31, 2020. " https://jp.usembassy.gov/visas/
  7. Did the 221g state any missing doc? Did you hear any feedback from them yet about your visa? "Refusal under section 221(g) means that essential information is missing from an application or that an application requires additional administrative processing. The consular officer who interviews you will tell you at the end of your interview if your case is being refused under 221(g). The consular officer will either tell you that the case has to undergo administrative processing, or will ask you to submit additional information."
  8. If you have already sent in your I-944 (I.e. before July 29, 2020), the new ruling does not apply and there should be no impact on you at all. “As long as the July 29, 2020, SDNY injunction is in effect, USCIS will apply the 1999 public charge guidance that was in place before the Public Charge Rule was implemented on Feb. 24, 2020 to the adjudication of any application for adjustment of status on or after July 29, 2020.” https://www.uscis.gov/i-944
  9. I doubt that would be DOS would hold off Consulates IV visa processing that long (especially USCIS already said they would revert back to the previous Public Charge guideline) but who knows...
