Changing the Interview Date
« on: March 18, 2004, 08:56:28 PM »
Thinking way ahead here, and wondering about a worst-case-scenario type thing...

David & I have decided to start our visa process ASAP, because he's already been casually approached by 2 colleagues in the States for work - whee for him! - and we'd just like to get the ball rolling sooner rather than later. So we're going to get the police certificates after Philip is born, then hopefully mail everything off once we get the police thingy. Everything would have to go *crazy* fast for this to be an issue, but you never can tell....

We'll be on holiday in the US for 2.5 weeks in June & July. If (big "if" I know) they give us an interview date for mid-July or so, and we're in the US for the interview date - how do they feel about rescheduling? Not rescheduling because we've got a cold mind you, but because we're out of the country - I'd hope that given proof of our journey they'd be nice and just offer another date? How does that work? Anyone with experience on this one?

Worse comes to worse we'd change our plane tickets, but would obviously like to avoid paying for that. But we don't want to make the Immigration Gods mad at us! :)

So... how do they feel about changing interview dates?

I think you just have to call or write to them telling them you cant make the interview because you'll be out of the country. They WILL reschedule you, but you might have to wait a month or so.

When you send in your paperwork, write in your cover letters that you'll be unable to accept interviews between this date and that date because you'll be out of the country. If they know prior to arranging your interview when you wont be able to attend, they'll gladly work around you.

Ooh... good idea about including it in our cover letter. :) We'll do that! We know it's a stretch, but we'd hate to have to put them off and add that much more time to the process!  ::)
