The Interview

After you have completed the steps on the Immigrant Visa Process on usvisas.state.gov, the National Visa Center, NVC,  will review your file for completeness. Once your case becomes qualified for an interview, NVC will work with us to schedule an interview appointment for you. You can learn more about the interview process on usvisas.state.gov.

If you have received a notice, Instructions for Immigrant Visas Overview, from AIT, please read and follow the instruction carefully. You must notify AIT once you have submitted the required immigrant visa application form (DS-260), and you are ready for an appointment. You will receive an appointment notice within two to three weeks if you are applying immediate relative visa, or within five to six weeks for those people applying an immigrant visa under the family-based or employment-based classification.

After NVC or AIT schedules your visa interview appointment, we will send you an email or letter noting the appointment date and time.  After you receive an interview appointment letter from NVC/AIT, you must take the following steps BEFORE the interview date.

Step 1: Register a document deliver address on line through www.ustraveldocs.com/tw before your appearance at AIT.

Step 2: Schedule and attend a medical exam with one of the AIT designated physicians (PDF, 368KB) a medical exam in Taiwan approximately three weeks before your visa interview.
