Visa Interview

The interview is a crucial step in obtaining a U.S. visa. However, life sometimes interrupts our plans, and it becomes necessary to reschedule or cancel the appointment. Let’s discuss the process and implications of changing your visa interview date, ensuring you are prepared and aware of the importance of the interview.

1. Understanding the importance of your visa interview date

The National Visa Center (NVC) schedules your interview date. It’s crucial to attempt to attend on this day, as a significant wait might occur before the next available appointment slot. Sometimes, a visa becomes available within the month NVC has scheduled you for family-based and employment preference visa categories. Therefore, it is essential to acknowledge that there is no guarantee a visa will still be available on the date of your rescheduled interview.

2. Checking visa availability

Before you move to reschedule your interview, it’s essential to consult the Visa Bulletin. This will help ensure a visa is still available in the month you have selected for your new appointment. Remember, you must verify this information before making any changes to your appointment.

3. The process of rescheduling your interview

Should you need to reschedule your interview, the first step is to register your original NVC/KCC appointment online. This is a prerequisite before you can select a new date. You can do this on the website. Note that rescheduling is only possible on a date after your assigned appointment. Remember to consult the Visa Bulletin before making any changes and to register your original appointment online.
