Interview location and DS-260 questions

Jan 9th 2018
Hello,

I have a few questions regarding my application. I am EU 15XXX. I have submitted my DS-260
in May 2017 while I was still living in Country A. Since then I moved back home to my home
country B starting July 2017 and now I am working in Country C since January 2018.
My interview was set for Country A.
Questions:
1. Can I have my medical done in a different country than my interview?
I am considering to leave my interview for country A but do my medical in country C.
Is that possible?...

The "been there done that" thread: life in the US after DV

Maybe mods can make this sticky. I think it'll be worthwhile- it's always interesting to see the progress other people have made when you are on a similar path. The idea is to add links to blogs etc here rather than fill this thread with posts. The ones below are the ones I am aware of/can remember ... Apologies if I forgot anyone but please add on.
