Delays in CSCIS uploads to NVC

#1 RGinWA

    Seahawks Baby!



Posted 29 August 2013 - 12:15 PM

We received our NOA2 on August 1st, but since then CSCIS appears to have not uploaded many cases to NVC.

 

I've called NVC everyday since the 8th day and also sent an email with the attached NOA2 to NVCResearch@state.gov as their reply email asked to do if the wait has been more than two weeks. (It's almost a month now)

 

Question is, does CSCIS usually hold up the process and then flood NVC with weeks worth of files at once? It just appears an odd delay to what was a fast process for us.

 

It seems that the other centers are processing to NVC a little more regularly.

 

Not complaining. I know others have waited much longer. 

 

Thanks...

The service centers typically send approved cases to the NVC in batches. I'm not sure how frequent those are for CSC, but they are physically sent, not electronically.

When I've talked to the reps at the NVC they've referred to the files not being "uploaded" by CSIS yet. I'm not sure what that refers to, but that's what they've said every time.

Generally NVC has a backlog that's basically the bottom line. When a file gets approved it doesn't get sent straight away thereby creating the backlog happening right now.

I was approved July 26th, and my case has still not been forwarded to NVC. I'm a TSC transfer.

 

Also it's USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services), CSC (California Service Center), VSC (Vermont Service Center), TSC (Texas Service Center), NVC (National Visa Center).

 

The incorrect use of the acronyms will likely confuse people, to help you better phrase your questions in the future. :)

 

As of right now the NVC is informing people that the transfers can take 4-8 weeks from the Service Center to NVC. You're not the only one waiting and frustrated, trust me.

Doing some research on this TSC TO NVC problem. Turns out that there is a recurring Robles with TSC sending the approved petition to the NRC instead of the NVC. And no one bothers to check, they just gve you the canned response. NRC is NATIONAL RECORDS CENTER. People, that is a holding pattern. If you don't keep emailing, calling, it may just sit there forever.
