Hi, I need some help! Does my husband need to go back to the consulate?

Annapolis, MD |

My husband has attended two immigrant visa interviews. At the first he was denied, but we got it reapproved through USCIS. At the second, he was told he needs to renew his medical and police clearance. (Apparently police clearance expires?) We never got any paperwork from the consulate, but they told us he can come back for an interview. Is there any way he could just send them the paperwork without going for an interview? Thanks in advance for your response!

  1. Your husband will need to go back to the Consulate to complete the immigrant visa process. I recommend that you consult with a qualified US Immigration & Nationality Attorney to discuss your case further.


  2. Yes, he needs to be interviewed.

  3. If they told him to come back, he needs to come back. You can also contact the consulate and ask them.

  4. He needs to comply with the consulate's request to return for another interview, he should have a new police clearance and medicals with him. You may contact the consulate again by email for an interview date.
