Hi All, 
Recently our case has been received by NVC, and while we were trying to fill the DS-260, we were facing some problem. Below are all the doubts:- 

we are referring to below PDF
https://travel.state.gov/content/dam/visas/DS-260 Exemplar.pdf

(1). From where we will received the Beneficiary ID no?
As per NVC guide lines, everywhere it is written that we will receive NVC case no and IIN no once our case is entered in NVCs system, but then when will we receive Beneficiary ID.

 

(2). Under Security and Background section there is a question :- 
Do you have documentation to establish that you have received vaccinations according to US Laws.
For this my spouse had some of the vaccination that are mention as per US Laws and we have documentation for this, but she has not received all the vaccinations mentioned there, so is it she has to take all those vaccination before her immigration ?
 

Thanks,

Edited by Arpan

The Beneficiary ID is no longer required to login to the NVC website nor to fill out the DS-260 form (I don't ever remember needing it). Nevertheless, the beneficiary ID is provided in the welcome letter the NVC will send you. If the NVC has just received your case, you will need to wait 1-2 weeks before receiving this letter. You can also call the customer service number and try to get the beneficiary ID from the customer representative.

Do you have documentation to establish that you have received vaccinations according to US Laws.
For this my spouse had some of the vaccination that are mention as per US Laws and we have documentation for this, but she has not received all the vaccinations mentioned there, so is it she has to take all those vaccination before her immigration ?

Others can chime in here, but I was in a very similar situation. My wife had very little documentation showing what vaccines she had received. We answered "NO" to this question and in the box asking to explain your answer we typed the following, "The beneficiary will receive all vaccines as per US Laws prior to the interview". We had no problems with our application. However, I think it's also probably okay to just answer "Yes" here if you have some documentation.

 

Your wife will have to receive all required vaccinations (see here for a complete list) prior to the interview. If she has few vaccination records, then all necessary vaccines will be given at the time of the medical appointment. Now, my wife had few records and we didn't want to get like 8+ vaccines all at once, so instead we started going to a local doctor here to slowly get all the vaccines. However, when we finally went to the medical appointment, we were surprised to learn that many of the vaccines were not required. So although the NVC provides a list of "required" vaccines, the final say comes down to the medical panel doctor. So, basically, if you're OKAY with getting multiple vaccines all at once, don't bother getting any vaccines until the medical appointment. You may have to end up taking far fewer injections then you might think.
