NVC Hotline Down?

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

After an excruciating waiting time, we've finally been approved! Now, we've been trying to get our case number by calling NVC's hotline 603-334-0700 however it's either the phone line just goes on ringing or it gives us the "all of our representatives are currently engaged right now, please call again later". What I don't understand is why they don't just put the callers on queue instead of telling them to call again later? We've been calling for the past 2 days now for more than 30 times.

Is this just a technical problem or they really want you to redial 700 times until you get to (not even a human operator yet) a menu first! Please advise.

Thank you!

it's not down that's normal, yep they want you to redial at least that and then wait some more as well, I recommend calling at 6:59am their time as I always get through and never wait more then 5 mins .

It is normal. I also called yesterday and got through on about the 15th redail and then waited on hold for about 20 minutes. We were approved 6/2 and still NVC has not received the file. However, last night I got an update from USCIS that yesterday they sent the file to NVC. May still be a few days before NVC gets either of our files. Good luck with getting through.

After calling 32 times, I got through and now on hold since 11am CST.


You literally either get the "We're too busy please call back" or you get a ring and the automated message saying the options have changed yadda yadda press 1 for english, THEN you get put in a que.
