14 May 2015: Letter from Immigrant Visa Unit, LND Number obtained (NOA 3, dated May 12, 3 weeks 4 days from I-130 approval)

I got 3 e-mails from the embassy in 3 weeks (by using the contact form on the website), and each were very generic and said to wait 8 weeks from the date of your approval for the IVU to receive the application. We received the LND letter via post. They do respond to posts made via their twitter page: https://twitter.com/USAinUKCGCorner

15 May 2015: Medical booked for June 3rd at 3:10 PM at Knightsbridge drs 4 Bentinck Mansions W1U 2ER

Looking forward to a smooth trip for the medical. If anyone reading this is actually planning on driving to the medical, this is the nearest parking garage/car park to the office (London Welbeck Street as of this posting (May 17 2015)) you can prepay and book a spot for the day. It's only about a block's walk away so surprisingly convenient. Also, if anyone doing this has a disabled intending immigrant, Knightsbridge did say they have a portable ramp available and are willing to assist. One last thing, they are now asking for 4 passport photos and the fee has increased to £250.
