someone can help..... really appreciate the help:

1. How can i find

out if Casa consulate has received the petition from NVC? My fianciee

went there and called many times but everytime the answer is to wait

for the packet.

2. Can she go and get the pacaket?

3. We have already

downloaded (from britsh consulate) all forms except the checklist and

filled them up.... Once we get the packet, can she go personally go

hand over the checklist and get the interview appointment?

4. How long

is the wating persiod from turning in the check list to getting the

interview date?

      tmaliik I had 129F (K1) for my

      fianciee approved and sent to casablanca consulate on Jan 22nd, 2004....

      and have following questions, if someone can help..... really appreciate

      the help:

      Hi tmaliik,

      My husband received his K3 visa

      approximately one month ago. I don't think anything is drastically

      different between the way Casa handles the K1 and the K3's, except you

      will probably have to provide more proof of relationship than we did. I

      will search for some of my posts that may help you.

      1. How

      can i find out if Casa consulate has received the petition from NVC? My

      fianciee went there and called many times but everytime the answer is to

      wait for the packet.

      They will notify you. If the NVC

      forwarded the petition already, you'll hear from them soon. I would

      give it at least another two weeks. Don't bug them too much. It is a

      small consulate and they will remember you.

      2. Can she go and

      get the pacaket? No. 3. We have already

      downloaded (from britsh consulate) all forms except the checklist and

      filled them up.... Once we get the packet, can she go personally go hand

      over the checklist and get the interview appointment? When

      you get the packet they will send an appointment date with it. IF you

      want to you can ask for a sooner date. However, they don't have to give

      it to you. 4. How long is the wating persiod from turning

      in the check list to getting the interview date?

      The process in

      Casa is different than the British consulate, don't go by the

      instructions on the British consulates website verbatim, you will get

      thrown some curves. To my knowledge, there is no prior turning in of

      the checklist in Casa. You take the checklist with you to the

      appointment. My husband's appointment was approximately one month from

      receiving Packet 3.

      5. can she go ahead and get medical

      exam without having received the packet?

      No.

      Any

      other help, tip to faciltate the process will greatly appreciated.

      Thanks.

      My only advice to you is, don't push your luck with

      this consulate. They can make it very difficult for you if they want

      to. My experience has been that they are suspicious of Moroccan

      immigrants. My timeline is below. Have you done your Affidavit of

      Support? You will need 3 years tax returns.

    • Hi,

      These are the three threads that I started relating to my husband's

      consulate interview and the subsequent issuing of his K3 visa. They are

      pretty long and full of congratulations and/or condolences. You won't

      need to read all of the way through all of that stuff. ;)

      I hope this

      helps.

      Leslie
