Step 3: Embassy Processing

Once the Consulate receives the petition, it will review the file to ensure that all necessary documents have been submitted by the beneficiary. 

If more documents are required, the Consulate will resend the instruction packet to the beneficiary. 

Once all documents have been received, the case will be scheduled for an interview.

Interviews are typically scheduled for a date within 2 to 4 months of this time, check with the local US Consulate.

Once the interview date is set, the Consulate will send the beneficiary an appointment packet providing instructions on how to prepare for the interview.

The beneficiary will need to have a medical exam completed at one of a list of designated hospitals before the interview takes place.
