Hello NP2020




Just a question regarding the Visa application confirmation where we receive from

on our scheduled appointment date.  Did you get the appointment confirmation number for vancouver or does it only include the date, time, D160 con number and passport # and instructions.


Kindly reply as i am scheduled for 1/19/2016 but have not received the conf# like i did in 2013.


It says 'Please verify your appointment details, shown below' but there is no link subject says 

"Yatri: U.S. DoS Visa Application Confirmation (action required)" so wondering what action is required.


Thank You
