Hey Guys,


I'm curious about the NVC expedite process, USCIS is a bummer but I'm hoping when we get to NVC I can be prepared ...

So I've been over VJ's several posts and threads about NVC Expedites but there really isn't something recent and meaty (for lack of a better word) about it.


1. How do you request an expedite? (I've read you can email the expedite email address NVC has ... )

2. Can you request the expedite before having a case number and or invoice number generated?

3. What than happens through this request? Who gets it? How long does it take for review?


From what I've read NVC, if they approve the request, sends the case to the US Embassy in the appropriate country and everything thereafter is dealt directly with the embassy. Is this correct?

- If so ... well than howbout the AOS, Package 3, IV ... what happens to these? All the tax transcripts, paystubs etc. that need to be give to the embassy, than what? The beneficary has to provide all of that to the embassy?

arrowAP message body change

Hello, my fiance and I have come across a theory and I wanted to see if any one else has heard or experienced this too.


The theory is that if part of the AP message (in the body) changes from "processed and mailed/available" to "...processed and mailed or available" after a recent status update, the update means they are getting read to issue the visa.  


I have read that for K-1 visas the really good change is when it goes back to "ready" status, then goes back to ''AP" with the title saying 'Nonimmigrant' and then it should change to "issued".


Any thoughts?

arrowMachine Readable Passports (MRP) required for Afghanistan

Hello all,


I just wanted to post that beginning November 2015 (I think on the 25th) the old, handwritten passports issued by Afghanistan will be invalid and no longer acceptable for international travel.  Afghan missions and the MOIA (Ministry of Interior Affairs) are issuing machine readable passports (MRP) and if you are in the process of getting a visa, you may want to look into getting and MRP before your interview.  I would expect that requests for MRP's will increase and might even backlog around the time the old passports will be invalid.


I think this is also similar for Pakistanis.  Be prepared and think ahead for your own situation!  Cheers!

arrowHelp! RFE notification ... suspension??

Hi Guys,


I sincerely appologize if I'm posting incorrectly, I'm new to this forum and this is also my first post so bear with me please ...


I applied for an I-130 with Priority Date 06/22/2015. I requested an expedite on 06/29/2015 which was denied.

I than requested an expedite again (with more verifications) however I had my senator submit it for me on 07/08/2015.


My USCIS case status website doesn't say anything about the expedite again, I JUST received an email/text, when I view my USCIS case website now it says

"RFE Was Mailed ... On July 14, 2015, we suspended processing of your Form I-130, Immigrant Petition for Relative, Fiance(E), or Orphan, Receipt Number, because we need more information from you:


My question: Suspended? Is this normal? This got me super worried, have I done something wrong? Has this got anything to do with the expedited request the senator office submitted? If so how come there is nothing under case history??


Thank You all so very much!

arrowDoes the AP card colors mean anything?

Well, we joined the AP ranks too.  We are trying to stay hopeful, but we are a little confused by the signs.  My fiance said that there were probably about 3-5 fiances and maybe 25 spouses there for the interview that day and everyone was put in AP.  He said that he thinks that no one's medical results were either received or reviewed yet.  I know previous Afghan members on this site said that their fiance's brought the medical results to the interview with them, so maybe this is a new procedure?


The foreboding thing is that they didn't keep my fiance's passport, but kept everyone else's passport.  However, they did keep his original English translation of his National Identity Card despite the fact that he brought a copy of it.  He just barely had time to get it the day before his interview, so I'm wondering if it's so new that it's not registering in the Afghan system yet?  But then again, it's just a translation.  I figured that if they thought it was not accurate or fraudulent, they would not give it back.


Anyways, does anyone know if the AP card colors have any special meaning?  His was yellow and I think he said everyone else's was yellow too, but when he wakes up, he'll let me know.  We weren't asked to provide any other information at this time, but I was wondering if this would give us another clue to think and think and think and think over and over and over again!  Lol!


We are hopeful that our case is waiting on the medical exam results.  And if our case needs other checks, sure, no problem.  But we sure would have felt a lot better if his passport was in a file in the embassy right now!
