Please can anyone share how long it is for NVC and until interview. Should my fiancé start gathering his documents or is it too soon. Passport, police certificate photos etc!!

Congrats on your 57 day NOA2. You can call the NVC after 2 weeks to check for a case number. It takes roughly 30 days give or take to reach the consulate.

Congrats.... It took 17 days for NVC to receive our paperwork and another week to process and send out to Kingston. Once you have your case number from NVC, you can submit online the DS-160, pay the visa fee and then you will schedule your interview online. And absolutely he can start getting all his documents together, especially passport if he doesn't have one. With the fee increase taking effect the PICA offices have been overwhelmed, so I'm thinking that's gonna slow them down a bit. Police record is good for a year so he can go ahead with that. If he doesn't have the new birth cert on the blue security paper from RGD he will have to get that and also No Impediment cert has to be gotten from RGD, which takes a little bit to get back.

Hope that helps, Good Luck

The visa fee is still $265. I was referring to the fee increase of the Jamaican passport, it goes up on the 1st of June I believe and the PICA (Passport, Immigration, and Citizenship Authority) offices have been bombarded because of it. So they are gonna be overwhelmed in processing. The RGD (Registrar Generals Department) is where you get vital statistic certificates, ie.. Birth certs, death certs, marriage licenses, no impediment.

You are welcome.. Anytime
