Background check at NVC

Does NCV do a background check before sending the case to the embassy?

And do they do another one when I submit my application to the embassy?

How long does it take to do the background check?

I am asking these question to **try** ( I know this is almost impossible) to predict how long it will take to receive the visa.

Our application is already in Naples Italy and I am wondering when we will have the interview date after we sent the application

Thanks,
Raffy

Yes they do, Checks are done at all stages of the process, USCIS, NVC, and Consulate.

At NVC it is fairly short.

Our case was about 2 weeks in Administrative Review.

Name/Security checks are a normal process with NVC/consulates but the wait time at NVC is generally not too long as cases can and will be forwarded to the consulate prior to the name/security checks being cleared. Administrative processing usually refers to a legally mandated security check the Department of State (NVC) must do for all applicants/beneficiaries over the age of 16. The length of time one can be held up in administrative processing will vary as some countries are subject to closer scrutiny. The process normally takes four to six weeks but as I said it can be much longer. Fingerprints are sometimes required at consulate level but this is all a part of the initial administrative processing that began at NVC. Once an interview is held a visa will not be issued until/unless clearance has been received. In most cases (again dependent of country), administrative processing will be completed and clearance granted well before an interview is even held.

So aussie, I was told I was in administrative processing. Should I have to wait at least one month? Is there any way to know if I have to wait one month or six months?
