  1. I had my medical yesterday at Knightsbridge’s and my experience echos the positive accounts shared by other users. It’s nowhere near invasive as one would imagine and the people working there really are lovely. One thing that really made the experience an easy one (other than turning up with everything they asked for) was the medical letter I acquired from my GP regarding my long history of depression and agoraphobia. The physician conducting the medical assessment remarked that the letter was excellent and provided all the necessary information. The only question I was asked was if I had received counselling to which my answer was no, I wasn’t questioned any further. If you need a medical letter from your GP especially from one that doesn’t know you (as was the case with me) consider providing them with this outline and a note explaining your history in your own words and how you currently feel. It might provide some helpful insight and gives them something to refer to once you have left. This is the outline I provided the GP with as the basis for my letter: Diagnosis? Treatment? Duration of treatment and illness? Any prior or subsequent mental health or illness? Have there been any incidents of self harm, harm to others or suicide attempts? What is the prognosis and your opinion of the patients mental state. Is she a risk to herself or to others? I used my appointment to discuss my history and current mental state and explained that these questions needed to be addressed in the letter which they were and she even included parts of the note which I wasn’t expecting. I know it won’t guarantee the same results but it helped me and the Knightsbridge physician’s reaction made it feel worth sharing. 🤓
  2. Hello! I thought I'd publish my start to finish experience of going through the K1 Visa Medical, I am sure it will be pretty detailed so hold on to your butts. In late July I booked my appointment by calling Knightstbridge with my LND number from the NVC. The soonest date I was offered was Tuesday 27th August, so there was about a 1 month wait on booking. That was okay though, as it allowed me to do a little bit extra overtime and increase my savings prior to the bill. August 13th rolled around and so I pre-booked train tickets, a rather steep amount as it was a 450 mile round trip. I had initially planned to take a 9:30am train, but decided last minute to go an hour earlier, which was a sensible decision. I left my house at 8am, did the 2 mile bike ride to the train station, and set off. I arrived in London Paddington for 11:30am. Unsurprisingly, both trains were 20minutes late which is consistant with the UK train service you can expect to receive. I am familiar with the London Underground and how to get to where I needed to, but for those worrying about getting lost: Don't. It's dead easy. If you're coming by train, before you exit Paddington near the smokers corner, head down to Bakerloo Line (Southbound) and take it for 3 stops til you get to Baker Street. Then you simply switch onto the Jubilee Line (Southbound) until you reach Bond Street. I arrived on Bond Street at about 12:15pm, so with time to spare I decided to get some food from Pret, just around the corner from the Bond Street station. From here, it was about a 7 minute walk to Bentinck Street, and the first building you see is 11 Bentinck Street, which in the e-mail from Knightsbridge is the building to look out for. I was there! Alas, it was only 12:40pm, so I was almost an hour too early for my appointment! However, conveniently around the corner, past the Korean Streetfood shop there is a Pub where you can get a free water, recharge your phone, sit and wait or use the toilet. Knightsbridge Doctors from the front Press the buzzer for Flat 4 here, it is all clearly marked. The Appointment I arrived promptly for 1pm to my 1:30pm appointment, as I expected to be filling out paperwork. I was told to go and wait in the waiting room, which was pretty comfortable with big leather sofa's and water refreshment. At your designated appointment time, you are supposed to come back up to the desk. It's at this point that you will be asked to provide any documentation that you have. You're probably familiar with the list already, but what you will need is: Passport (Bring your original, and they like a copy - if you do not have this, they will make one) 4 US or UK style passport photo's. (Mine was a copy, I used a photobooth locally to get US Visa Photo's and did a colour scan onto photo paper to save costs) ACRO Police Certificate (I did not even bring the original, a copy of this will suffice) Vaccination Records (Mine was again, a copy) Completed Medical Questionnaire (Link is found in your email from Knightsbridge) - ALSO: DO DOWNLOAD THIS STRAIGHT FROM THE EMAIL, THEY UPDATE THIS PERIODICALLY AND THE ONE I HAD FROM 4 MONTHS AGO WAS OUTDATED, BUT I CAUGHT IT IN TIME. Something legitimate with your LND case number. I brought a copy of the letter from the embassy with the barcode on the top of it. Try to avoid handing over originals, as they will keep these documents (Passport is the exception). The guy next to me made life particularly difficult for the receptionist as he had no copies, and they were all original and he was kicking off about needing them all back. So make life easier for them and you, copy everything. I did this and kept them in a plastic wallet and handed it straight over. When the receptionist is done with the paperwork, they will give you another short questionnaire which takes 2minutes to fill out and a sample cup to pee in. You can pee in the cup at anytime during your appointment, which is a good thing as there is only 1 bathroom which is high in demand. After about 5 minutes after handing in my sample cup and completed questionnaire, I was called over to do my chest x-ray. This was pretty quick and simple, shirt off, lean on the machine, done. 5 more minutes in the waiting room later, another Doctor called my name, shook my hand and took me into the office. I can't stress enough how relaxed these guys are, I can't speak for them all but the Doctor I had (Doctor Clarke) had an excellent bedside manner, and a great sense of humour and was overall a pretty funny guy. I was asked the usual basics, to confirm my DOB and my name, as well as confirm any previous surgeries (In my case, tympanoplasty). I was asked if I smoked, had ever taken drugs, if I drink - how often etc. The usual Doctor questions. He then asked me to remove everything except undergarments, and lie on my back on the bed to perform some routine tests. In my case he tested my breathing, heart rate, blood pressure, eyesight. Nothing invasive at all. A blood sample was taken, though he had trouble locating a vein to draw from. My medical went smoothly with just one or two caveats. Lack of medical history. This is just due to my local GP being generally useless in almost every way. 5 times I had visited prior to my medical to request a Patient Summary or short break down of medical history. I even set up my records online, and signed my consent to share all of my patient history on there so I could access it. No bueno. All I got was my last 3 consultations. As a result, when it came to pay I was handed a consent form and letter to my GP requesting the information. The other issue was high blood pressure, I believe this is due to me using Panadol on a headache in the morning. I had no knowledge that NSAID's will send blood pressure through the roof, oops. Whilst it's not grounds for dismissing my case, the Doctor was being a Doctor and told me I needed to go to my GP, get a repeat blood pressure done and have the results, and an action plan faxed over to him. After being walked back to the waiting room, the time came where I was called up to pay. The receptionist went over what the Doctor had told me , so get consent signed, get results faxed over etc. She showed me all the paperwork, handed it to me and took payment. £330 was my total I paid, with no vaccinations needed at all. Job done! For those of you stressing prior to your appointment like I was, you can relax. It's really not that bad at all, and I'm not exactly in great shape. I have my interview in 2 weeks tomorrow, but in the interim I'm scheduling an appointment with my GP to get the rest of my medical signed off. I am unsure if Knightsbridge have 'held' my medical from the embassy until I fax further information, however I want it sorted ASAP so I can fly out on my preferred date on the 28th of September. Below I have included what forms I was handed post medical, with personal information blanked out. Total bill, along with a printout of FAQ's US Department of State form 3025. You will require this when you apply for Adjustment of Status. *DO NOT LOST THIS* Letter to my GP requesting a re-take of my blood pressure, attached underneath is a letter with consent form with a request for further medical history for my GP to fax to Knightsbridge. That's it for my medical experience, the whole thing took about 90minutes from start to finish and truthfully, I don't know why I was worried. I wish any prospective medical attendees the best of luck, just remember to be prepared! This whole process is about preparedness.
  3. Hi very new here! I have booked my medical and visa a day apart (28th and 29th) is this fine (I obviously expect some kind of delay coming with this) I have seen few people have their medical and visa in a day and it been fine, but I'm just unsure and would like to ease my mind a bit! Roughly how would the delay be? Would they not approve me at all? Or would they approve me depending but providing the medical comes back okay?( heard this before happening) Some folk who have waited 5 days after their medical STILL haven't got their medical results so I assumed I would be in the same boat, sorry I'm rambling now haha. Thank you for reading!
  4. Hi guys, I have my Medical this week and have just received the email confirming the appointment from the Doctors. I noticed that on the email it said I needed a Medical report from my GP however on the embassy website there is no mention of this and it just says I need a vaccination report. Do I need the Medical Summary Report if I have no medical issues?
  5. Hi, My husband is now living back in America and I am about to post off our I-130 petition. He has mailed me a check to cover the filing fee of $535, however I have just noticed the instructions say only cashiers checks are accepted, not personal ones. I have however looked at previous forum posts from others who say they've successfully paid via personal check so I'm confused as to whether my petition would get rejected or not. Has anyone paid with a personal check recently without any problems? The check is from Bank of America and made out to US Department of Homeland Security. Thanks
  6. Hello Guys, I'm very excited to share that our case is currently at the NVC and me and my fiancé have received our LND case number. I'm now preparing my documents that will be required for interview.I've travelled to the USA the first time I travelled to America was for 2 weeks a B1 Visa when I was 18 back in. The visa never requires a police check and I was granted with no issues. I have also lived in Canada and served as a missionary for my church for 2 years. Since 2013 I have travelled to America numerous times on ESTAS as my B1 was only valid for a year. I have travelled 4 times this year and I'm heading there to be with my fiancé for Christmas. Now I'm applying for a K1 Visa. And I just applied for my police record check on Friday. There was a question on the police record check that prompted me to do some deep thinking. It asked me to declare all spent convictions, reprimands, warnings and cautions. So I emailed my local police station to ask about the offence. When I was 12 years old I got in a fight with another 12 year old kid and received a reprimand from a police officer at the police station. ( A strong telling off) . Although this won't show on my record as I was a child and it clears after 5 years. The check may come back as "no LIVE trace" which means there's history of an offence but has been spent. However, The US still require me to provide them with documentation of the offence. Since it takes 40 days to prepare a special report from the police I have gone ahead and requested this already. So by the time I get back in January I will have it ready for the interview. To this day when I've applied for visa waivers etc I've never felt inclined to share this because to be truthful I've completely forgotten about the incident and I never believed it was required to declare a reprimand. I guess now I've gotten myself all worried about the situation. I am 100% prepared to declare this arrest on the DS-160. I know it's down to the consular officer in regards to the final decision. I'm just reaching out to see if anyone can relate or share there visa interview experience after declaring an arrest and if this incident when i was 12 will cause issues come my interview in January. I appreciate all feedback thoughts and advice... Kind Regards, Owen .
  7. We had our interviews on Thursday last week, issued a 221g form as our medical results weren’t there yet (confirmed with Knightsbridge the results were all signed off and got to the embassy on the same day we interviewed). Status and case created date changed multiple times on Monday and now it’s been administrative processing since then. Can anyone let me know how long it took for your AP with the London embassy and how long the delivery of your visa took please?
  8. Hello, any help is greatly appreciated. We rang up today and Visa Medicals (London Knightsbridge) have informed us that the medical results were sent to the embassy yesterday. Does anyone know how long the embassy takes to change the status on the CEAC tracker or how long before the visa gets mailed off via courier? (We already had the interview and were approved Oct 10th but have been waiting for additional medical info since then.) Thank you in advance for any help.
  9. Hi All, I have a query regarding my Interview in the US Embassy in London this Friday. My wife and her dad are providing I-864's and as per the London Embassy requirements, all documents are required to be brought on the day of the interview. The checklist for required documents suggest originals or certified copies are required for all documents except Passports and Photographs. The originals have been posted to myself but it will be tight and not a guarantee I will receive these before the interview. Will printed copies of the forms and relevant evidence be accepted? I found a couple of topics on the matter, but couldn't find any specific to London Interviews. I know the NVC accept scanned copies now. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Matthew
  10. Hello all, I'm hoping someone will be able to offer some advice, I've see a few posts on various forums about this particular matter but have yet to see an answer or definitive outcome to this situation. Some context about my case - For nearly two years I have been working on my O1 visa case with my lawyers; Kate Raynor & Associates. I have two job offers in Los Angeles waiting for me as a musician; one to join a band and the other to be an on call session guitarist to one of LA's top song writer/producers. We submitted my case with USCIS in June 2017 to which I was asked for more evidence. I was annoyed but did as requested and gathered more evidence then re-submitted at the end of October 2017. I then received a positive outcome mid December 2017 stating my O1 visa had been approved. I booked an appointment for my interview and to send off my passport to get stamped at the US embassy in London on January 3rd 2018. The interview didn't go as expected as I was told they would need to review my case further, the next day I received an email from the embassy with a 'notification of revocation'. The decision will now go back to USCIS who will either agree with the London embassy's recommendation to revoke my visa, or they might still think I deserve the O1 (I would think they would side with the embassy though). The average response time from USCIS seems to be about 6-12 months, possibly longer. As anyone can understand this is pretty ridiculous as no job offer will realistically wait indefinitely for an answer, even if it is positive, especially in the music industry. I have been given no specific reason as to why they are trying to revoke my visa other than one short line in the email saying 'The request for revocation is based on further administrative review of the applicant’s qualifications conducted subsequent to your visa interview at Embassy London.' This seems incredibly unreasonable as the interview only lasted about 5 minutes, I was asked about 5--10 questions which were somewhat vague, so I was unable to talk about 90% of the evidence that granted me the initial approval. It also appeared the consular officer who interviewed me had no previous knowledge of my case, so was basing the entirety of his decision on my answers in that moment. Does anyone have any knowledge/experience on how to resolve this matter quickly, ideally with the visa ultimately being approved? (as it has been approved in principal in the US). This decision will have massive long term ramifications on my life as, from now on, if I travel to any other country and they ask if I have ever been denied a visa, I will have to say yes and explain why. This will obviously count against me and will potentially impact my ability to work as, being a musician, I'm often required to travel all over the world for gigs. So the embassy's decision to refuse a visa to work in the US will now risk my ability to work anywhere else. It will also affect the band and producer who have offered me jobs as they will now have to start looking for other guitarists to fill my spot until this matter can be resolved, which again will affect their ability to work and progress. Thanks for reading, I can give more info if needed, I didn't want to post too much straight away as that'll probably scare people off! Jake
  11. Hello everyone! My husband had his visa interview at the Embassy in London on October 22nd, and almost everything went great! At the first window, the consular official asked a few questions about how long my husband and I have been married, and where we met. The official asked about my W-2. I had not uploaded any W-2s to the CEAC site because I thought I was good and clear with submitting the last 3 years of IRS tax transcripts. I did, however, have a physical copy of the W-2s in a booklet with all other required documentation. (Which they didn't even ask for) The second consular officer asked my husband where we were planning to live, but did say Medical and the lack of W-2 and that I had filed Single last year with no uploaded documentation has put our case as Approved pending documentation. She gave him a blue form and another sheet of paper stating where to upload documents to and an email address to notify that I had uploaded requested documents. Fast forward a couple days, and I am back in the US. The embassy sent my husband an email stating that they received the results of the medical exam and still were waiting on the additional tax paperwork. I have uploaded an amended tax form, all my W-2s for the past three years to the requested CEAC site, and emailed the embassy notifying I had uploaded everything. It's been 5 days and CEAC still lists the uploaded items as SUBMITTED. I can't remember how long it took for the I864, marriage license, etc when I originally uploaded them to be marked as ACCEPTED, but I was hoping he would be able to be here by Thanksgiving. Has anyone gone through something like this? It's incredibly frustrating to be caught in this limbo, yet it taught me a lesson.... ALWAYS INCLUDE EVERYTHING. EVEN IF IT IS STATED EITHER/OR.
  12. 2 questions: How many people have been issued a rejection during the interview and had to complete the form DS-5535? Any idea how long "Administrative Processing" is taking currently at the US Embassy in London? My Interview was November 20th, so 2 weeks ago, and the "Last Updated" date hasn't changed since the Monday after (presumably when they received my emailed copy of the form)

    221g at London Embassy (IR1)

    So, I had my interview yesterday at the London embassy and everything was going smoothly until they told me they were issuing a 221g as there were documents missing, however I had an email early September from CEAC saying "Notice regarding your Immigrant Visa Case becoming Documentarily Qualified"... This doesn't make any sense, why would they give me an interview if the documents weren't all there and correct?? I have uploaded and submitted the documents they said they are missing (even though some are already on there!) does anyone know how long it will take to review?
  14. Hello! Our interview is scheduled for Nov 7th - I know it takes about a couple of weeks to receive the visa in mail - I was wondering how many days it took for you guys? We are hoping he can make it in time for Thanksgiving!
  15. Hi! I'm feeling super lost with this whole process at the moment and what I'm supposed to be doing and when ... I just found this forum and was hoping that someone would be able to help! So my fiancee (petitioner) received our NOA2 in the post on 27/09, it was dated 19/09 - we never filled out the form allowing electronic communication (did not know we had to and now I am kicking myself about it because I know it speeds everything up not having to wait for things to arrive in the post.) We tried calling the NVC to give them our email addresses but they said that they have not received our case from USCIS yet and they cannot attach info to the file until they have it. So my first question is - how long is it taking at the moment for NVC to receive cases and assign LDN case numbers? Ours was sent from the California service center. We just want to know when the best time to call and ask for our case number would be, as we have already phoned twice now and don't want to become a nuisance haha And next, once we have the LDN case number, in what order should I book my medical, submit the DS-160 form and book the interview? I have read so many different people's experiences and timelines that I've become completely lost about what I am supposed to do and in what order. At the moment while we wait for the case number to be assigned I am applying for my police certificate and getting my vaccine history from my GP, as well as preparing the affidavit of support and getting my photographs done. I would just like to know what needs to be done next and hopefully get an idea of when it would all start to happen as I am eager to get over there in time for Christmas and my fiancee's birthday. Sorry this post is so long, if anyone can help with any part of this that would be greatly appreciated! Thank you
  16. Guys, can anyone please tell me how the Visa Status will change on CEAC it’s currently showing “Administrative Processing” as I got a 221g at the London Embassy on Tuesday but yesterday I submitted the requested documents. Does anyone know what CEAC visa check will show when it’s been accepted etc ?
  17. Good afternoon! My husband had his interview yesterday at the US consulate in London, and was approved very quickly. It was an incredibly painless process made easier by helpful and friendly staff. This whole process has been incredibly quick from petitioning to approval, and our personal timeline is as follows: September 29th: Mailed I-130 with all required documents and credit card form. October 2nd: Received NOA1 email October 30th: received NOA2 approval November 1st: received LND number -as soon as we received this we checked, double-checked, and triple-checked what we needed/already had. November 9th: booked interview and medical, submitted DS-260 November 21st: Medical at Knightsbridge- perfectly fine! December 1st: Had interview at embassy. APPROVED!!!! As we are doing DCF and I have been living in England for four and a half years(I am a dual citizen), I needed to prove my intent to re-establish domicile. I provided: -three years of tax returns -a signed letter from my father stating that myself and my husband are going to be living with/working for him at his company -my 4 week notice confirmation letter from my job -an email from our letting agents confirming we are moving out of the property This was COMPLETELY FINE! I was worried it wouldn't be enough, but the officer didn't even ask. My only issue at present is that our CEAC status is now at 'Administrative Processing'. I am concerned as my husband was definitely approved, and the officer confirmed that we would receive the passport within 2 weeks. We are due to be in Texas by Christmas. Can anyone please confirm that I need not worry about this, and it may just be an in-between state until it is actually issued? Does this get updated over the weekend, or is it only updated Monday-Friday? Thank you in advance!
  18. Hi! Does anyone know what situations you need to update the DS-160 for (as in, create a whole new one to submit). We've some minor changes since i last submitted the DS-160 but I don't want to resubmit the whole form again unless it really is necessary. Everything on the form was 100% correct at the time of submission, but my interview is on the 10th Oct and my last day at work is 3rd Oct, so technically my current employment will have changed (I did write in the Job Duties section that I was finishing on 3rd to get ready for moving) The other potential update is that my fiancee changed his name legally in the US to make my name change process easier (we are taking on a new married name rather than hyphenate or take each other's names). He has sent me an official version of the name change document for me to take with me to the interview but is this grounds for updating the DS-160? I think my main concern is, if I update my job on a DS-160 form I'll have to update my fiances name too. Does anyone have any experience with this or similar issues? Any help would be appreciated.
  19. Hey! I stressed before the medical and reading reviews helped a lot so thought I'd write one out of my time there!! I had never had a full check up by a GP before so sorry if this is over detailed for some but I didn't know what to expect so maybe it'll help some other 20-something who has no idea! Appointment was for 11.30AM. I arrived at 11AM and was asked to take a seat in the waiting room. 11.25AM they called me up, asked me to hand over my passport, 4x passport sized photos (i had US standards), my ACRO, my letter from NVC (mine was an email correspondence, this was fine), my GP patient summary and my vaccinations (I brought along my red baby book but they didn't need it). They asked if I needed photocopies of anything, I had also brought along my own photocopies of the docs but they just did it there. Handed a urine sample bottle and a form to fill out, I asked where to give back the urine sample and its to the reception desk Once I had completed the urine sample and form and handed it to reception I got called in straight away to do my X-rays (around 11.35). Quick and easy, asked to tie my hair up, I had a hair tie but if you don't there is one there for use and/or a clip. Remove top, bra and necklace and put on a gown. The lady doing it didn't comment on how the X-ray was but I got to see it which was fun. Went back to the waiting room, 5 minute wait to see the Doctor. She was so nice and reassuring!! We signed a couple of papers and my passport photo with form. Checked everything was right with form I had filled out (I had had outpatient surgery at a hospital, she said this didn't count as hospitalization, also i marked that I'd had a cough or fever because I thought it meant like...ever in my life, turns out it's more for chronic cough or fever so she changed that) She checked my BP with the machine, I told her my heart rate usually shows up fast on these and I have to do them twice normally because I get nervous. First time was a little fast but okay for what they wanted she said Weigh in and Height check Then she got me to read the eye chart Sat on the bed and she checked my eyes, ears and throat. Took off all clothes bar underwear and put the gown back on (optional?? at least thats what she said 😅 I was more comfortable with the gown). She checked my heart, again nervous and a little fast but fine, she was jokey about it. Lungs and abdomen check and rotated my limbs a little. Then my reflexes. Time for my bloods - easy peasy, no fainting and my veins are nice and fat so very quick/one try. Arm aches now though We talked a little throughout the whole thing, she said that they only ever see the short side of the visa process but she knows they can take forever, she also had no idea what visa I was traveling on which I didn't expect! Didn't need to see the nurse for Vacs because I was all up to date, waited for 5/10 mins in the waiting room, paid up, received my vaccination record for AOS and was on my way! Was told it's taking about 5/7 days for them to receive results from blood and urine and to send them to the embassy and that i'll only hear something if there's a problem. All in all a good experience, friendly and not stressful at all. About an hour in total spent there. Plus its in a really good area if you want to grab something to eat before/after or a bottle of water to help with the urine sample!! Hope this helps someone!! I think that's everything...also hope this is in the right place!...Count down to my interview next!! EDIT: Also she noticed I had a tattoo and asked my how many I had and where they were located, I guess she had to mark this down somewhere but I didn't see where!
  20. Hi everyone, I posted this earlier in the general K1 visa forum by mistake, and I don't know how to delete it so I'm sorry if cross posting isn't allowed. So I'm a bit worried about something. For the affidavit of support for the interview, I've read lots of different things about what evidence you should provide. The thing is, my fiancée only started working at her job in July this year, and I'm worried about this affecting things. She definitely earns enough to prove she can support me, but she just graduated university this year, and so we're worried that things like tax returns and a statement from her bank would make it look as if she hasn't earned enough this past year. I was planning on bringing a letter from her employer, something confirming her current bank balance, and some of her pay stubs (along with the I-134 of course). Would this be enough evidence? Or will they need to see tax stuff or a letter from her bank? I have a month until my interview, and I'm having it in London. Thank you for reading 🙂

The thing is, my fiancée only started working at her job in July this year, and I'm worried about this affecting things. She definitely earns enough to prove she can support me, but she just graduated university this year, and so we're worried that things like tax returns and a statement from her bank would make it look as if she hasn't earned enough this past year. I was planning on bringing a letter from her employer, something confirming her current bank balance, and some of her pay stubs (along with the I-134 of course). Would this be enough evidence? Or will they need to see tax stuff or a letter from her bank? I have a month until my interview, and I'm having it in London. Thank you for reading 🙂
  22. Hey! Forums have been super helpful so just want to double check my reasoning - on the knightsbridge medical form it asks about hospitalization. I had 2 small outpatient surgeries, both done at a hospital and both taking less than 3hrs under local anesthetic. They are on my patient summary, I was referred through my GP etc. Now normally I would say these don't count as hospitalization but as my medical is in 3 days I'm overthinking everything and I don't want anyone to think I'm trying to hide something!! So - check YES or NO for hospitalization..?
  23. Hello I called and spoke to the NVC last Friday ( 9/21/18 ) and they gave me our Case#. Today my fiancee called to schedule his medical and they told him to come this Friday ( 9/28/18 ). My question is - is the attached screenshot enough to print out and bring to the Medical ? Even if it still says "at NVC"? How long after you are given the case # does it take for them to send it over? Can we still attend the medical with it not being forwarded over to the embassy yet? Thank you
  24. Hi there I think I’m posting this in the right place. I am a UK K1 beneficiary. So last year my fiancée, the petitioner, made ~$1000 less than the required amount on her tax return due to us traveling but since she’s been home she has acquired a new job that means she is now going to be making above the 125% thing. The previous years tax returns she also made above the required amount. She is sending me pay stubs, last three years tax returns and a letter from her employer - will London only take into account previous years? Or will they accept that in her new job she will be making the right amount? We have a co-sponsor available if need be, is it possible to just take the extra form with co-sponsor info and give it to them at the interview if they question her ability to be my sponsor? Will I get that chance or will they deny me without asking if I have a co sponsor? All the affidavit stuff confuses me a bit which puts me on edge, I don’t find the forms the easiest to read and understand so would really appreciate any help!

    London Embassy Wait Times

    Just wondering how long others have waited for their interviews at the London embassy after being approved at the NVC? My attorney is telling me that it will only take 6 weeks to receive an interview date, but I've heard of people waiting months.
