My husband and I have been together for 6 years (married for 2 of those) and have both been living in the US for the whole relationship, so I am hoping that our application will be pretty straight-forward. Last month we received an email saying that our application would be reviewed soon and the status changed to "Assessment in Progress". We are really hoping to get approved by September or we would have to wait until next year to move because of work complications, but I know it's just a waiting game now. I had a couple of questions: - I have gotten conflicting information from the embassy about whether or not to proceed with police/medical checks. I went ahead and started the FBI check, but wasn't sure how to begin with the medical check. From what I have read, it looks like I need to wait for them to send me information on some sort of online account. Is this correct? - Also, I was under the impression that my husband and I would actually have to visit the embassy for an interview before being approved. Is this part of the partner visa process, or will we be approved without having to go there? Thank you!
I haven't heard of interviews lately in this thread unless perhaps if people are from high risks countries?
