Help! Is the IV package the actual visa?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Due to a technical error with the embassy in Buenos Aires, they cannot pull up my husband's electronic signature. Our visa should have arrived at our house today. They stated he can bring the DS-260 with signature tomorrow (since the technical issue will not show it) and they will try their best for the IV package to be given to him. Is this the visa? We may have to reschedule his flights because we basically have a week left and there is a Argentine holiday coming up soon, meaning no mail.

The visa is attached to a page inside his passport. What they will give him in addition to his passport is the visa packet. It's an envelope containing all the documents that you submitted to USCIS, NVC and the US Embassy. He should NOT open/tamper that packet. It will be surrendered to the immigration officer at POE.

Thank you!! Hopefully, they will do this as stated & we will not have to wait hoping it arrives in time.

the visa is attached to the envelope. But people need to heed warnings given by the embassy to never book travel arrangements until the visa is physically in your hands

We feel as if we did take the warnings & did not purchase tickets until after the interview (July 30). The lady who initially took our documents & the consulate confirmed we should receive it in 5-7 days & that the previous technical printing problems had been fixed. Our flight is for the 18th & on the 17th places are closed for a holiday. This means we are now down to 6 business days (if it arrived by mail tomorrow). We paid for fast overnight service & the company says no one would receive the package at the embassy. The only positive is my husband should have visa in hand tomorrow.
