  1. I have received my welcome letter and filed DS-160 forms. However, I can't find the civil documents column in the CEAC website. I heard here that some consulates demand that documents are sent in paper copies to the NVC. Does anyone has experienced that with immigrant visas being processed in Rio de Janeiro? Thanks!
  2. Hello everyone!!!! I'm sure this is good news for those who are wondering when they are going to get their interview appointment letter from the NVC. I want to share our experience after we were DQ'd at the NVC. Here are the dates: DQ on March 14 2022. Interview appointment letter: March 21 2022. Interview date: April 11 2022 (Rio de Janeiro) I think it is important and relevant to share when good things happen! I would love to see someone posting this information, because give us an idea of how long it is taking to get an interview scheduled at Embassies abroad. Since they don't share this information. Miracles happen!!!! We are extremely happy!!!! Good luck to all of you! God bless!
  3. Hello everyone, My husband made plans to come to Brazil for our interview. He has our original marriage certificate. Everything was fine, he was planning to come here with it. We figured out that he needs to be fully vaccinated to enter the country, but he isn't. Which means that he won't be able to come, and we are running out of time for him to send our marriage certificate by mail. (we figured this out yesterday, and we need the document to be here until this friday). My question is: In case the document is not here in time, is it better to go to the interview without it? Just with the photocopy, and explain what happened to the consular officer? OR is it better to reschedule the interview? Second question: If we reschedule, what happens next? Do we stay waiting one more time without knowing when it is going to be? Can we receive our visa approval and just send them the original document when it gets here? Thank you very much!!!!

  10. Hello! Is there any way to know what month/year is the Rio de Janeiro Embassy scheduling interviews for IR1 visas? When I checked this website for brazilian's timeframes at the Embassy (Rio de Janeiro) almost everyone had their interview scheduled after one/two months after DQ. Does anybody know when the people that are getting interviews scheduled right now were DQ at NVC? THANKS A LOT! I just want to make sure if this is accurate (I would be extremely happy!) GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU!
  11. Hey everyone! Por gentileza, alguém pode me informar se é possível rastrear o pacote que o consulado americano nos envia antes de podermos marcar o exame médico e a entrevista? Outra dúvida: sobre o prazo. Desde outubro nosso caso consta como "ready" no site do consulado. Porém, nem eu nem meu noivo recebemos ainda nenhum email ou o pacote com as instruções e autorização para marcar exame médico e entrevista. Alguém podem me ajudar? Esse status de fato indica que eu já deveria ter recebido algo por parte do consulado americano no Rio de Janeiro? Please, we really need help!!! Obrigada desde já, pessoal. Boa sorte para todos!
  12. Is anyone going through Rio had any movement in their K1 interview status?
  13. Hello everyone, I had my EB3 interview on November 29th, 2021 and my medical exams two days later, on December 1st, 2021. The consular officer told that everything looked correct and they would just wait for the medical exams to issue the visas. Does anyone know how long is it taking to the Brazilian Embassy to receive the exams results and process the visas? I know usually the medical exam is made before the interview and then you take the results to the Embassy, but I think we all know that due the pandemic it's hard to get an appointment with a doctor before the date of the interview. As of today, my case still shows as "Refused" in the CEAC website (last update: December 6th, 2021). Thank you BR,
  14. I am a little confused regarding the I-134 form. When will this form be needed? Will it need to be presented when my Brazilian fiance goes to the Rio interview? Will it need to be presented to the immigration officer upon arrive in the US? Will it be needed to sent with the AOS stuff (greencard paper work)? Something else that concerns me is that I am a university student with minimal work history. I would not be surprised if all my part-time and contract work from the last year or so don't add up to reach the poverty guidlines. I do however have my dad which I can put as a joint sponsor. I should also note I am studying a field that pays well on entry-level positions. With the information I have shared, should I be concerned about having the I-134 form present a problem in our K1 approval process?
  15. When NVC receives my packet and sends it over to Brazil, will it always be the Rio Consulate office that they'll send it to because it's a K1? My finace (Brazilian) lives in Goiania and it would be perfect if she got an interview in Brasilia, which is 3 hrs away by car. Is there any way to request that the packet get sent to Brasilia instead of Rio for the interview?
  16. Does anyone know if the k1 visa will be processed in an embassy other than Rio?
  17. I sent an email to make a medical appointment in Rio de Janeiro. how long do they take to respond? Thanks
  18. Does the ceac website show the date on which the interview is scheduled?
  19. My case is EB-2 doing for Brazil. An interview expedite was issued and accepted for being a doctor with certified experience in treating people with covid-19. the case was sent to the consulate but I still have no response after that (40 days). Forecast?
  20. Hello, my fiancé is wondering about our DS-160. We had selected no on having any relatives in the US and it looks like we should have selected yes based on this. She has her interview next week and we are wondering if this should be yes and how do we correct it? Any help would be appreciated.
  21. Hi all, I'm newer to the site, loving how much information is out there. We're K1 case and should be receiving our NOA2 this week. Is there any visilbility to how many cases are at the different consulates and how fast they will be processing? I'm getting excited for wedding planning and all, but there is still a lot of uncertainty as to when we'll have the final greenlight, and it seems like there's an abundance of cases stuck at NVC
  22. Does anyone have information if USCIS are processing K1 visas for Brazil Petitioners? I've seen a lot of restrictions for Brazil due to Corona situation and not sure if they are moving forward with processing applications in Rio. Still waiting for noa2 in a couple of months but have read that even after the noa2 it could take a year. Thanks in advance.
  23. We have received the NOA2 and are awaiting word for the interview and medical exam in Rio. My girlfriend has asked me to attend the interview which I will do but our question is about the medical exam. I only have enough time to arrive and attend the interview. Can someone tell me the timeline on getting the medical exam? Must the beneficiary have the results of the exam when attending the interview? I will arrive on Saturday, travel with her to Rio for the interview which I understand is always on Tuesday. Can she get the medical exam on Monday and have the interview on Tuesday? This is very important because I can only stay in Brazil for 4 or 5 days.
  24. Hello, Does anyone know how can I obtain a criminal record from Paranà Brasil? My dad is not from Brazil, and he does not have a GR number, but he has a CPF number. He lives in Colombia now, but he lived in Brazil before.
  25. Hi, My fiance is from Sao Paulo and I read that he needs 2 police reports, one from federal police and one from state. He got the Certidão de Antecedentes Criminais from federal police but the US embassy website also says he needs a report from state police with all previous addresses for the past 6 years. He's called everyone and nobody in Brazil knows what this is! Help PLEASE!!! Here is the page that says this... http://brazil.usembassy.gov/interview/forms-for-fiancee-visas.html
