FYI, Thursday will be 4 weeks since the Consulate received our ppwk from the NVC and we still have not gotten the letter for packet 3 yet.

I emailed the Conselate that I had not received packet 3 and been almostb4 weeks and they replied to me giving the information for packet 3.l via email. If you want it I can email it to you. My email is sdean04@hotmail.com. You can return the information to the address on the letter.

Hi, I see that you received your approval! YAY! I had a quick question for you. We contacted the Unidad Medica Angloamericana for our medical exam and they gave us an appointment 10 days prior to the embassy interview. They said it would take at least that long to have the results back. It seems like an unnecessarily long time between appointments. My fiancé is going to have to travel to Madrid from Santander two times in a week. They are also charging 400 Euros. Did you have a similar experience? The reason I ask is that I've read other accounts where people have gone to do the medical exam the day before and then picked up the sealed result and then taken them with them to the embassy interview the next day. I just don't know if that is no longer the way the do it or if the lady that gave my fiancé the appointment is just unaware? Please let me know about your experience, I am panicking here! Best of luck to you and your fiancé and many congratulations! Norma

Hola JD & Ela! I wanted to ask you about your interview in Madrid. I have mine in a couple of days, and I want to make sure I'm prepared. Did they ask you for any additional documents besides what is listed on the website and the new intent to marry statement by the US fiance? What kind of questions did they ask you? Any type of information will be much appreciated. Gracias!

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
