That is normal, you will get a visa,but you have to attend,London, Belfast would be my choice to go to if I where you. Canada has the same rules,

Some are saying it can take up to 6months ffs I'm going in 3 ,so time is everything . E.mailed the us embassy today for an appointment for Belfast . Just a waiting game now ,I've booked and paid this holiday since last October ,can't believe the hassle , just to go on holiday .
