St. Luke's Requiring the NVC letter.

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm in a predicament and do not know what to do about it. My fiance was at St. Luke's and did the medical exam, but before they can release her results they want the NVC letter that shows the MNL#. I got the MNL# through calling the NVC. Our case says ready on CEAC. She already has an interview scheduled for the 26th of June at the US Embassy. She has all the proper paperwork except for the NVC letter. She showed them the appointment confirmation email and it wasn't enough. Will a picture of the CEAC status be enough?

The nvc are sending letters anymore, I called them a lot and they kept telling me the letter is on its way, until a lady told me they are not giving letters for k1 visa anymore so I used the CEAC case status mentioning the case number and it worked just fine, and I even I used the same when I went to the embassy in order to acquire a letter for police clearance.

Hope that will help, good luck

She will go back today at 8am to get immunizations. So I guess the woman at the counter yesterday had her write in that she didn't have the NVC letter and told her if she has problems at the US Embassy it isn't their fault. She will go in with the printed CEAC status. I don't know why this would even be a big deal if she has an interview appointment confirmation letter. Considering you can't even get that without an MNL#.....

The only thing that is required for SLEC (at least as far has we know and up to this week) is the interview confirmation page that you printed or the emailed confirmation page with your MNL#. Again, you do not have to wait for your NOA2. Also, we have heard that they are asking to see your DS-160 confirmation page. So, bring along both your DS-160 and the interview appointment confirmation pages to be safe.

Someone there does not know what they are doing, unless this is a new policy. If you run into problems see if you can talk to a supervisor and question the clerk who told you this misinformation. If it is not misinformation, then it's a new update.

Can't see why it is a problem, if USEM has excepted and schedule your interview they should proceed with the exam. Sometimes we see someone who does not know the procedures or rules. It happens here in the states specifically with Social Security.

As recently as when? I received my NVC letter in April as well as one from USEM in May (a month after they received the petition, we already had the medical and interview scheduled). Asking for reference when discussing with other people.

Some have used the CEAC status page and "got by" at SLEC. Have you emailed NVC requesting your MNL#, I suggest to try that also

E-mail: NVCInquiry@state.gov I highly recommend you email NVC for the MNL #, even if you call and get it, this will give you a correspondence from NVC with the MNL # for future reference and use at SLEC. The email request for your MNL # is also a great way to track when your file is forwarded to USEM as NVC will not reply to the email until that time. ;)

REQUIRED SECURITY INFORMATION:

You are required to provide the following security information with each inquiry to receive a case specific response:

* NVC Case Number or USCIS Receipt Number (Place in the subject line of the e-mail).

* Petitioner's name and date of birth.

( NOTE: If the visa petition is employment-based, include the employer's company/organization name instead of the petitioner's name and date of birth. )

* Principal Applicant's name and date of birth.

SLEC lists the NVC letter (with case file number) and the appointment confirmation on their website

http://www.slec.ph/us-visa-applicants.shtml#required-docs

The DS-160 confirmation page (copy) is requested on the back of the "receipt" for the next day.

As recent as last week, I already emailed the NVC one month ago, they never replied and kept calling until the 18th of june and they kept giving different answers. 21st of june went to the US embassy in kuwait wih the letter they have emailed and the ceas status page, and I was fine as well as I have used the same page to finish the medical test.

What u can do to make sure is to call the NVC again, better at 7 am in the morning, that's the time I went through the most.

Sending an email would have been a lot less stress for me. Thankfully they did end up releasing her results. So for those that may see this in the future, definitely do what Hank just posted!

Also would like to add how thankful I am of Hank and Greenbaum's guides. Thanks for the info.
