  1. Hi! Our CR-1 application got documentary qualified on Sept. 24th. We are wondering how long does it usually take until we get our interview email or date in Egypt? If anyone went through this recently can you please tell me how long you waited for the interview after you got DQ? Thanks.
  2. Hello! I have a question about scheduling an appointment on the eVisa site. I am trying to get married in Egypt to my fiance and the first criteria is setting up an appointment with the US Embassy in order to get a marriage affidavit. Unfortunately there are no appointments available. Many of the days are in blue signifying they are booked, but a lot are also grey, signifying they haven't been opened up. For reference this is the scheduling site: https://evisaforms.state.gov/acs/default.asp?postcode=CRO&appcode=1 I contacted the embassy via. email asking them when the site gets updated or how it's determined if a day is opened up, but aside from automated email response and one actual response of "keep checking the site" they haven't been helpful. I even had my fiance visit the US embassy to see if they can offer any insight as to when a date opens up, but they just referred her to the email address I had already contacted. Does anyone know when these grey dates are opened up? I read on other threads here that they open up appointments a few months in advance, but some of these grey dates are within this and next month. As an example here is what August shows: As you can see there are a few dates at the end of the month, but I am not sure if or when they open up. Do I just have to keep checking daily or are these blocked out because of other reasons? September has only 2 grey dates and the rest blue. I have all the documents that are required to perform the rest of the steps for a civil marriage in Egypt, the only thing I am missing is this one affidavit which it seems I can only get from this embassy. Any help is appreciated!
  3. Hello everyone, I was wondering if anybody in Egypt has already done the affidavit for your income for the cr1 spousal Visa. The reason why I'm asking is because I'm really confused on this part and really need help. So I do have a current income as of 2021. But in 2020 I did not make enough because I was living in Egypt with my husband. But I do have a job now, and I don't know if I am going to need a co-sponsor. Is there anyone that would be able to help me to explain to me what I need to have.
  4. I've been trying to track my passport and I'm getting these different replies from these different sources recently: USTRAVELDOCS Profile: "Document Delivery Information" instead of "Your passport is still with consulate/embassy" passportstatus email: "There's no status update available for the passport number submitted" Is that a good sign? My CEAC visa status still says admin processing though. Thank you.
  5. When we filled the information for the police certificates we filled them out in Arabic. I read somewhere that we don’t need to translate documents if they’re in the language of the country where the US embassy were applying through is located. So I’m not sure if we should translate the police certificates before uploading them to the NVC or not. Did you guys need to translate them before uploading them?
  6. Hi, American embassy in Cairo informed me that they are not doing Authentication of (the already translated and authenticated by Egyptian authority) marriage certificate . My question is do i HAVE to authenticate it from American embassy in Cairo in order to use it for USCIS? Any other alternative? Thank you very much for your help
  7. US Consulate in Cairo, Egypt updated their visa page to say the below. What I don't understand is: how can they process/prioritize a student visa and not an immediate family (spouse) visas?!
  8. I am a US Citizen and my husband lives in Egypt. We just got DQ'ed today. Our case started last year with CR1 with a PD of December 26th 2019 at the TSC. My question is how long is the wait for the interview at the Embassy? Thanks for the help.
  9. Does anyone have any recent experience going through the process with the I-130 form in a marriage to an Egyptian. If so how long did this process take? - and also while waiting for this visa was your spouse able to visit America on a B-2? Thank you!!!
  10. Apologies in advance if my question is not in the correct forum, but appreciative of anyone who is able to point me in the right direction. I am a US citizen, and planning to move to Egypt for some time and also get married to a Egyptian citizen. However, due to the current pandemic, notarial services in Egypt are currently suspended. I am curious if there is any paperwork I can/should prepare while still in the US to help the process along so it is easier when I get to Egypt? Any insights or suggestions are greatly appreciated!!
  11. I just received the new bilingual (English & Arabic) Marriage & Birth Certificates. I have already had them stamped by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. However I can't find any answers on the embassy website as to whether or not these certificates (specifically our Egyptian Marriage Certificate) need authenticated by the US Embassy or not. Any Info would help greatly as I have searched everywhere and can not find an answer. (Just today we sent in our documents to NVC with only the certificates having been stamped by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs office as I had seen somewhere else in the forums that people had luck with that. But I would like to know this for future use when it comes time for the interview.)
  12. Hi everyone! Did anyone recently go through the medical exam for the US Embassy in Cairo? What should my husband expect? Also, I know you're supposed to go to the doctor with a record of vaccinations? Where can we get that? Especially that my husband wasn't born in Egypt? Any help is appreciated!
  13. Hello, guys. I applied for a B2 visa a few years ago and got rejected. Now I have my interview for a CR-1 visa next month in Cairo, Egypt. When I tried to go online to register for the IV address for the passport pickup, it prints out the DS-160 confirmation number on the bottom of the letter. Even though I type in my case number and priority date, it still prints out the DS-160 on the confirmation page. Shouldn't it say DS-260 or is that okay?
