  1. How to Ensure the Interview Date for Mother & Father is Same at Mumbai Consulate US Citizens’ parents are generally above 65 years of age . Their I-130 (IR-5) petitions are applied / approved seperately . It is desirable that the Parents who are Senior Citizens have the Interviews at the Consulate on the same day . How to ensure that the Interview is held for Mother and Father on the same day ? All concerned would like to know if the request for this must be made at the NVC stage itself in advance while filling DS.260 ? Is there any such option available ? Or later after two different Interview Dates are given by the Consulate ? Will the Consulate combine the dates , on our request ? How many days more ? All concerned VJ Members may like to share their views giving dates of NOA-1 , NOA-2 for one parent and when they got NOA-2 Approval for other parent . Your views please . Thanks . ----------------------------------------------------------------

  3. Hello everyone, I am wondering if anyone has received an interview appointment at the Abu Dhabi Embassy after recently getting their DQ. it would be great if someone would share their experience.
  4. So, I am currently in the F2b category - my father is my sponsor and he is a green card holder. I have been DQ'd and am in queue to interview at the Montreal consulate. Since they're so backed up right now, I won't be getting one anytime soon I think. My father will be a U.S. citizen soon - he got his biometrics done yesterday on Feb 24, 2021. He now awaits his interview and oath ceremony. As soon as this is done, should I apply to transfer to the F1 category? Will it be quicker?
  5. I see that there aren't many users who will attend an interview at the Senegal US consulate. Anyway, for the few that are (or have already), how long does it usually take to get an interview date after DQ? If you have, mind sharing your experience? Anything helps.
  6. I was a regular reader of the last London thread to keep myself updated with current timelines etc before it went to 70+ pages and way off topic. I thought it was such a useful resource so I’ve decided to start the ball rolling again so we can keep each other updated on news as it comes in. To kick us off, me and my wife were DQ 10th July so we’re hoping to get our interview appointment email early November. It appears June DQ dates have been scheduled so hoping this is our time after literally years of waiting. Fingers crossed for no Tier 3 lockdown in London!
  7. I made a group for those who are pending interview in Montreal Consulate for F2A visa category. My case has been Documentarily qualified/case completed April 4th, 2019.
  8. Hello everyone, I just wanted to make a thread for people waiting to get an interview in the consulate in Argentina no matter their category. So as to know how long is the backlog here. I'm F2A, and I just got DQ 7th January. First have to wait for the ban to be lifted
  9. Hello, US Embassy Jamaica are processing IR1/CR1 interviews starting with reschedules of interviews cancelled in March/April due to Covid-19. Anyone been rescheduled yet? What about new interviews for DQ's since April? I became DQ on June 17th, no interview date yet. Trying to get an idea of how long interviews are taking to be scheduled.
  10. Hello this is quite long but i try to cut it short, my hubby and i got married 2017 we applied in 2018 luckily USCIS approved our petition and it was sent to NVC, my hubby made a pause because he wasnt making enough so last year he made enough money and uploaded all the necessary documents, while trying to make enough money we didnt meet at all ever since the wedding since we were saving money thou we werr communicating every single day. 1.So my question is could us not meeting for 4years now bring a denial decision? 2. Could us submitting the required documents later after 2years bring a denial? 3. On the interview do i have to take i- 864, federal tax return, form w-2 wage and tax statement, proof of assets documents in original copies or i take photocopies? Will be glad when am replied🥰
  11. My husband is a US citizen and My process was documentarily qualified on the 18th of May 2019. Since then I’ve been waiting on my interview mail, a while back people from April 2019 were being interviewed. Any idea when I’d finally get my mail? Any day now?
  12. Hi everyone My husband and I have been waiting for NVC to schedule an interview. Our case was DQ October 28th 2020. Has anyone gotten an interview yet with similar DQ?
  13. Anyone else have their interview cancelled at The US Embassy in Montreal? My interview was supposed to be March 30 2020 at 930 am .. I am in the dark about my documents as my Background check expires July 12 and My medical expires August 21st (ish). I can’t update my medical because the office isn’t open to them now and neither is the police station to update background checks. I find this so completely unfair to not be given any update giving peace of mind. The money that has been invested and most of all the emotional investment. Anyone hear anything at all??? Grasping at straws here
  14. Hello everyone how you guys doing ? today I need a help about my n400 processing time. Is anyone here who applied on October 2020 and case received on November 10 ? Is there any waiting time frame listed ? Looking forward to your response response guys . Love you all
  15. Filed N400 on Oct 1st in Chicago, received biometric reuse on 30th Dec 2020, when do I expect interview date, any idea folks as I want to plan for a out of country trip?
  16. Hello, I wanted to get opinions from others who have either recently had their immigration interview, or have gotten a date set. I’m currently waiting to get a date set for my interview. I was notified by the NVC back in September 2020, that everything was approved and fees filed and everything has been sent to the embassy in Montreal. I’m Canadian living in Canada still awaiting my immigration approval. I am just trying to ball park a guesstimate of when I could possibly hear of my interview date? Any thoughts?
  17. We’ve received DQ email in November 9th, my wife is a nurse, and our visa is EB3, as in the London embassy website says to contact NVC to expedite if healthcare professionals, we requested twice and we’ve been denied saying that they cannot expedite because they’re doing by the list. We know that before October they were granted some expedite for healthcare professionals. So I would like to know if someone requested expedite after October and have been accepted. And if someone has the interview scheduled already, when have been DQ.
  18. Has anyone gotten an interview yet?? Or an update on your case?? When I call I keep getting the embassy in the U.S because I can't speak creole! And all they say is, well we don't know anything about Haiti but expect to hear something real soon! 🤦🏾‍♀️ I'm just sick of this process already!! Oh and all my paperwork was approved for NVC in June 2020.
  19. Can the interviewer at US Consulate Montreal access the USC (petitioner) travel history (by land border) to Canada? The petitioner works in U.S., has a valid U.S. driver's license, car insurance & registration, health insurance and phone contract. He visited me (beneficiary) for some (extended) time last year after I had an accident to take care of our son. Is it going to affect his domicile (considering Montreal is v strict on domicile)?
  20. Hello, so I am the petitioner for my wife, she lives in Singapore. So far we have had a relatively smooth process to reach the NVC scheduling us an Interview. However, we are having one confusing issue. We got our Appointment letter and inside the letter it gives us a Time and Date for our Interview (March 3rd, 8.30AM). Then it gives us a link to a list of things to do: Step 1. Register online This process involves going to: https://cgifederal.secure.force.com/ Creating an account (if one doesn't already exists), and entering document delivery information like address and everything. Selecting a bunch of options and filling it all out. Well, eventually we get to a section called 'Appointment date', however, it says "There are no available appointment dates". But, do we need to select an appointment date? The NVC/Consulate of Singapore already assigned us March 3rd, 8.30AM in the Appointment letter. It is concerning that on https://cgifederal.secure.force.com/, the dashboard says 'No appointment'. But the letter says a specific date... Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  21. We became DQ yesterday, October 20! Does anyone have any idea how long it should take to have an interview scheduled at the London Embassy? Thanks!!
  22. Has this happened to anyone? Our case was expedited and is now at the US embassy in Ethiopia. Last week they sent us an e-mail with detailed instructions for medical exam and other required documents, but NO date. In the e-mail they said: "Please find the attached instruction for immigrant visa process. Once you have completed all the requirements listed, email us at AddisIV@state.gov so that we can schedule you for interview." Has this ever happened to anyone else? I thought usually you receive a date BEFORE the medical exam, because that's what the medical examiner would want to see. The attached letter isn't even addressing my husband's full name. Is this a mistake on the embassy, or a new policy? I was hoping to get the interview date so I could fly there to help him for the last stretch. I tried calling the embassy and they refused to be of any help, and just insisted that I e-mail them, which I already did 5 days ago. Sorry, a little frustrated now.
  23. Hello, We got an update on our case and it says interview has been scheduled. We are freaking out not sure on why we have to do the interview We had attached our chils birth certificate, marriage certificate, 2018 2019 2020 tax returns , bank statements with our names on it , leasing agreement with both our names in it, and insurance papers for both of us beneficiary of each other, tickets and family pics Am not sure if its lack of evidences. Do you guys have any suggestions on how we should prepare for the interview?
  24. Hello, A quick overview of my timeline before I ask a question: Baltimore, MD 1/13/2020 Application Received 1/17/2020 Biometrics Scheduled 1/27/2020 Biometrics Attended/Reviewed 9/9/2020 Interview Scheduled 10/14/2020 Scheduled Interview Date However, I'm a semiconductor engineer and I have a business trip to Korea from 9/27/2020 to 1/4/2021. This trip is very important and accommodations like housing are already arranged. I am planning to reschedule my interview and I head that I need to follow the rescheduling instructions on the interview notice that I got and explain my situation by mail. My question is, will USCIS reschedule my interview after I return from Korea? Or is it completely random and they may reschedule it before I come back to the States? I don't mind the extra wait due to rescheduling, but I cannot return to the States and go back to Korea due to the Korea's COVID-19 prevention and quarantine law. Thank you in advance and feel free to give me any extra advices. Stay safe and good luck to everyone!
