NVC checklist review

Voice system says that NVC has received our reply to their checklist (they thought we had submitted the wrong document, but it was actually the correct one!!! I guess our case was being reviewed by a rookie... So unlucky!)

How long does it normally take them to have a review after they receive the info (we simply emailed asking them to check once because the document we had submited is undoubtedly the correct one... and attached a scannerized copy of it.)
I am scared we might miss this cut-off for appointment scheduling!! That would really be awful after waiting so long, and since we did everything right this time!

Yeah my checklist was received on Dec. 17. I'm still waiting....

This is very unusual why its taking way too long time.

When I called last week (Thurs), NVC operator told me she'll have a supervisor review it.

Done for 3 years or 10 years. Haven't decided yet.

(I'm going for the IR-1 and blowing off the K-3. Even if it takes an extra couple months, it's worth it to not have to deal with USCIS again)

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Note:
Please fill out I-130, wait 6 months for approval, then 3 more months for an interview. (Unless of course we've bombed your country into the stone age, then you qualify for expedited processing.)

Welcome to the USA!!!

I cannot change the timeline anymore because I forgot the email I used to register the timeline (which is different from the main email for the account)..
I think I will keep both routes going, so that once the IR-1 is approved, I can ask the consulate to switch the interview..
I hope NVC gets done quickly, all they have to do is to check again that we indeed have filed all the necessary documents!

Hi Ishom,

very good considering the holidays! Hopefully you will get a date next week!

We got the checklist mid of Dec. but we couldn't get to it or reply to it, but we called the same day and on the phone they told us they would review it (they thought we had a wrong document, but it was right!) because I was sure it was the right one.. then before Xmas I also emailed them a scannerized copy of the document telling them: "look, this is the right one!".
They emailed back one week later saying that they had received my email and it was being reviewed...
AVR since yesterday says that the checklist response was received Jan. 02. I think that in the next couple of days they will take a look at it!
Not sure whether to trust just my email or if it would be better to RE-send the letter with actual checklist coversheet.. I will give them until tomorrow and then see what to do.
It seems that AVR is always behind so perhaps the case is completed even!
It was complete from the time they received our DS-230, but that's another story....

Call the operator. Yeah. AVR updates every tuesday.. Im calling NVC's operator to check the status of my case...And before my birthdate in their system was wrong and i also e-mailed them and after a week they replied that they received my inquiry and then after 1 week again they e-mailed me telling that they corrected my birthdate in their system. So they are responding to our inquiry on our e-mail
