NVC Filers - March 2015

1,046 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Welcome to another monthly thread for those going through NVC. Good luck to all! Please read everything below, whether this is your first month or third :idea:

This thread is strictly for questions and progress. If you want to rant about this ridiculous process, please do so in this side thread here.

NVC will be closed on the following day due to federal holidays: NO FEDERAL HOLIDAYS IN MARCH!!. They are open every other business day (Monday-Friday) this month.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Before posting questions, please read the wiki I wrote on the NVC process here. Once you're done, read it one or two more times to really understand it ;) Don't forget to also read the official form instructions as well as USCIS and NVC's websites!
UPDATE: Please read the update I posted here in regards to no longer sending original civil documents to NVC!!
For up to date time frames, you can view my spreadsheet here.
If you want to see a visual of the NVC process, please view my flowchart here. Freshly updated to the new process!
I will be much less active in answering posts in these monthly threads, so don't bother asking me questions directly and please don't send me PMs with questions. If you send me a PM with a question that can be posted here, I will NOT reply. Just post them here for everyone to see and someone will come along to answer. Remember to be patient (re: just post once and wait) ;)

And if for whatever reason, you can't find the answer, try searching both on this website and on Google. It's amazing what you can find if you search ;)

If you're wondering about time frames, I've got a spreadsheet available for a reason ;) And if that doesn't help, look at the fellow members right here in this thread! Study their signatures/timelines and make notes. VJ also has this awesome page. Use it! I sure did during my process :)

And once you've got a case complete, please join Dwheels's case complete/interview thread (currently April), here.

Also, please read Kanuk's post full of advice and observations, found here.

New spreadsheet update!! In January, I inactivated my old request form (if you're still on the old layout, just PM me any updates). There is now only one request form active for people to be added/updated to. The current spreadsheet is more extensive than the old layout was and requires you to be up to date on things and to call NVC for specific dates. If you're not willing to do this, then don't even bother asking to be on my spreadsheet. I also issue my own version of checklists if you submit dates that don't match your timeline or if something else is wrong, like if it shows Armenia as your consulate and/or your timeline isn't completely up to date. So please, verify your timeline is correct before submitting a request.

New request form (to add or update) here

New request form response sheet (to see if you received any error notes from me or if I simply haven't gotten to you yet) here

My mom is sponsoring for my grandma through IR5 visa. Her case number is 5 number after my wife case but somehow i was able to access to fill out ds-261 and pay AOS fee already while my wife's case is still showing error message when i log in. Is it normal? Maybe they forgot to enter my case information into the system? Should i just call them on Monday. I'm so upset right now. :(

Sorry, I don't know anything about your case(s) and hopefully someone else can answer with better advice. I would suggest calling them on Monday to see what's up. Sorry that happened. :unsure:

i have a question for the GERMAN immigrants here....which kind of police certificate do i have to get? i didnt even know that there are different kinds. I obtained the normal one without signature or anything. Is it the right one? Or do i have to get a signature? Do i have to certify it? Im confused!!

oh...and another question...maybe a silly one, but i just want to make sure, do i send copies of all original (german) documents AND translations ?
