Our Story

  1. 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!
  2. Montreal embassy EB-2 interview wait time-Part 2 Continuation of this thread:
  3. Hello everyone. I have a question and I'd like to ask for your opinions. Does having a traffic ticket in the US make any negative effect on my visa interview? Is it a problem? I have two traffic tickets (for speeding etc.) from 2010 and 2015. I would feel bad if they negatively influence my visa interview in any way. Does anyone have similar experience or knowledge on this? Thanks in advance.
  4. During our interview, I was requested to complete an online questioner and given a yellow card showing that. Why it is asked and how long it usually takes
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. hey everyone, I have my visa appoitment in about 2 weeks here in Germany, I was wondering if they will let you know right after the appoitment if you get approved or denied or if they let you wait till you get your papers back?
  8. We received our interview appointment date by email on November 6th, 2023. I was wondering if they also mail out a letter before the interview or if we need to print out the email that we received and bring that to the interview?
  9. Hey everyone, It looks like a lot of us are all in the same boat waiting for appointments at the Ankara, Turkey Embassy. We all get the same message "There are no available appointments at this time." I wanted to start this thread to share tips, updates, and let everyone know when I find an appointment available in hopes of helping others. Best of luck to everyone,
  10. Hi! my interview and medical is soon and I just realised that I didn’t include my middle name(which I have in my passport) in my DS260. should I email the consul or i can wait till interview to tell the officer? thanks so much
  11. Hello, I have received the email from nvc that they sent my case to the Prague embassy yesterday morning. I already had the ustraveldocs account, so I logged in, and followed the steps in "new application/schedule appointment". I got to step 8 where it asked me to confirm the case ID, but when I hit the confirm button it gave me error message saying ""To attest payment you must enter your receipt number and check the box." Which was very confusing as it didnt give me any payment options yet and there were no boxes to check. I figured there was something wrong with the website and tried a different browser, which turned out to be a big mistake as I think that is what gave me the freeze on my account. I emailed the Prague embassy first, but then I learned that there is a ustraveldocs email adress (support-czechrepublic...), so I emailed them explaining the situation and asking for help (that was before I found out the account was frozen). So far I only got an auto generated email from CGI support saying they changed my password. To make things worse, they (CGI support, which i didnt email at all) sent me an email for new users with my login details to my gmail (but I already had an account made with my czech adress, the one they froze), so in hopes I could get past the freeze and finally schedule the appointment I logged in, but it just made me merge those two accounts - I have 2 email adresses, I used the Czech one to create the first account and the gmail to email them about the error message since my czech email looks a bit sketchy to non-czechs, but they probably just took it as that was my login email and sent me a new password for that again this morning. I don't think anybody has actually looked at the error message I got, at least not yet, and I am quite worried that when they finally un-freeze my account, it will be the same issue with the same weird error message. Do you have any advice as to who to contact or how to get help with this? Also, is it possible that if I dont confirm the interview date within x amount of days, they will give it to somebody else? the wait time I got is already way longer than everone else I have seen in Prague, so I would be really dissapointed if it got postponed yet again. Thank you!
  12. I just did my cr1 visa interview today in Beirut lebanon and it went well the officer said that my visa is approved but then he remembered that there is one last thing to do before giving me the visa which is to process the DS-5535 which is a background check now i have heard that some people who were given this form waited for months on end and some heard 2 weeks later did anyone get this form and how long till you heard back from the embassy
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. We received approval of our documentation on March 14 from the NVC. How long might it be before we get notice of the interview in Guangzhou, China? And when you get the notice of the interview, how long is it typically before the actual appointment. I would assume at least a month. It is my understanding that they arbitrarily assign an appointment time to you. Is that true? Thanks in advance for your input.
  16. My husband has applied for his mom to immigrate to the US. She got her interview appointment, and in reading the process it states you must go to the embassy twice, once to drop off documents and second for the actual Interview. We got an asesoria migatoria to help my mother in law with preparations for her interview. This person is saying she doesn’t need to go to the embassy twice. Does anyone have any insight on this? If she only goes to her interview will it cause her issues? Has anyone recently gone through this with information? thank you
  17. Hi, I know there was someone asking the same question recently but just curious if there are any more recent cases given that the Paris Embassy has been posting reduced wait times. Anyone working / applying through the US Embassy in Paris, how long after being DQ'd by NVC did you receive your letter with interview date? Also how long after was your interview scheduled at? This is for IR-1 Spousal Visa - Consular Processing. Thanks in advance!
  18. My fiancée passed her interview! When can I buy her airline ticket? Do I need to wait for her to receive the passport in the mail? She was told it would take 10 days to be delivered. My fiancée wants to fly on Nov 30th.
  19. Dears Our priority date is current since last July, still waiting for an interview appintment. Usually how long it takes to schedule interviews for F3? months or years? Thanks
  20. I apologize if this is a dumb question. How long should you plan on spending in the Embassy to do the interview on the date of? I will be traveling with my fiancé and staying with her in Manila while she does her Medical exam and Embassy interview. We plan to get a hotel near the embassy. Her appointment is the earliest at 7:00AM. I understand I won't be able to go in, but I will accompany her outside till she gets in. I also understand that we should get there way before like at 5:00AM to start lining up outside. I also understand that the actual interview with a consular officer is usually just 2 to 5 minutes long. But I am not sure about the rest of the process. I know that she will have to go through several stations before meeting with the consular officer for the actual interview. She will also have to sit for a bit to wait between stations. Starting timer from when you are in the embassy and stopping when you are good to leave the embassy, how long is that time? 1hr, 2hr, 3hr, 4hr? I just want to gauge how long I would have to wait for her to finish. We plan to just meet up back at the hotel since she can not bring her phone. I am just curious how long I would have to wait before I can expect her to come back to the hotel. Because if she will be at the embassy all day till like 5PM, I will just plan to have a solo day and not wait around at the hotel for her.
  21. Hi, All the threads about Mumbai are really old and I could not find much information. My NVC status says Ready. Can someone please explain the process after that. I note on other forums that people usually start medical and schedule interview once the status is ready, but I checked on Rele clinic website and they asked to bring interview letter which I have not received. I have not received any packet 3 or 4 as well. Please advise the timeline for receiving interview letter and the visa process in Mumbai. Any information will be helpful. Thank you.
  22. Hello everyone, I am trying to find specific information for my upcoming K1 fiancé interview at the Montreal, Canada consulate. In Packet 4 it states “The day of your interview, please bring original and one copy of each of the following documents (as applicable)” and one item states “Birth Certificate (Petitioner and Beneficiary)”. I have my original birth certificate (beneficiary) and a copy, but I only have a copy of my US fiancés birth certificate. If anyone has had an interview recently or knows if I need his original and not just a copy, I’d really appreciate guidance! If he has to send me his in the mail it’s possible but I thought a copy was sufficient for his. Thank you!

  24. I'm the petitioner for an upcoming K-1 visa interview and am seeking clarity on the current rules regarding petitioner entry to the embassy. Earlier this year, we were told petitioners are no longer allowed inside the embassy building during the interview. As a US citizen petitioner, I'm skeptical of this policy change. Can anyone confirm if K-1 petitioners are still barred from entering the embassy during the beneficiary's interview? I thoroughly searched recent threads but couldn't find updates on this policy. If this is a duplicate question, please direct me to the relevant discussion. Thank you!
  25. Hello everybody, I filed a I-824 to have my son to follow to join, and submitted DS-260 last Oct. My son entered US for job internship with J1 visa this year. Do we need to notify NVC for that? or is there any impact on the interview? Thanks
