Hello there,

We sent our package to the NVC on March 19th but unfortunately my birth certificate wasn't the correct version (the inextensa one) and we had to send it again. NVC received my birth certificate on April 16th.

We have not heard from them yet, and I am desperate! I call everyday but they don't give me any updates. One representative says it could take 45 days from the date they received the last document, another one says 30 days, and another 60 days.

Does the count really starts over?

Anyone has an idea as of when our case can be complete? We need an interview date asap!

Thank you Visa Journey family.

Hello there. I was checklisted on 12/31 and my response came on March 9th. I was quoted 60 days for a response and it was exactly 60. But I heard that the turn around for NVC has shortened to 30 to 45 days. I didn't call that much because it just frustrated me more. When you least expect it you will receive the e-mail.

Welcome!!..It's amazing how much we have in common. On 03/20/15 we sent our package to NVC. On 04/15/15 we received a checklist regarding our marriage certificate (They say its issued by the incorrect authority and the seal is "suspicious", which makes no sense because my husbands birth certificate is issued by the same authority and has the same seal that issued our marriage certificate,and no checklist for the birth certificate), missing court documents (Which we sent!),and an error on our AOS part 6 question 5 (which i admit was blank). Overall, I resent our marriage certificate, this time the original not a certify copy, all original documents regarding court case, and fixed and updated AOS. We got a new scan date 04/17. I called on 04/29 regarding case updates, a very nice rep informed me that our package was received into NVC and was also scanned into the system, she told me to allow 30 days. I know it is confusing and at the same time frustrating because each time you call,you get a different answer. Be patient, be positive, have hope that soon we will too get a case complete. If anything I'am here if you need some help,venting, or ranting with this awful roller coaster ride.

Thank you so much! This long/annoying waiting process feels like an eternity.

We are still waiting. Have not heard anything from NVC yet. You?

Nothing at all. I haven't called since 04/29 when they informed me to wait 30 days, & honestly i wont call back either. I have decided to just give the whole calling NVC, checking the ceac website, and finding out about the case a break. This process can truly test your limits, and my limits are reached. Maybe if i let things go,they'll solve on their own and hopefully i'll get a CC soon.
