I was able to choose an agent over the phone earlier this week, and have now gotten the IV fee via mail. Has anyone successfully submitted the AoS and/or IV fee via mail and had it appear as PAID in the online portal. Would it be better for me to mail in the payment? Or wait until who knows when in the future to pay it online?

THANK YOU

if I were you I would wait for the online process to become available. (that's what I am doing). Mailing will definitely slow your process down.

Additionally NVC is working on the technical problems this weekend so if you are still inclined to mail, I would wait for at least a week before even doing so, to see if they resolved the online payment.

best of luck!

THANK YOU

I waited 4 weeks for IV fee to show up in ceac portal. I heard so many people paying via mail and not showing up PAID in ceac portal. To process mail payment NVC takes minimum 21 days. So I suggest to wait few days until it shows up in ceac portal.
