Welcome to the New and Improved Case Complete to Interview Monthly thread.



The list that has been updated has now been moved to a spreadsheet like the one used in the NVC filers thread, I am still updating. But right right all you waiting for interviews are listed.


You can view my spreadsheet  Case Complete to Interview Spreadsheet




To update your interview date go here. Case Complete to Interview Form


For New people to the thread please go Case Complete to Interview Form and input your information in the form and it will be added to the form.


Everyone should be clicking on the Portal tab to visit the information for their country. If nothing is there or information needs updating. Update or add.

Its up to all of us to keep this information current, relevant and helpful to others.

Special Note: Different consulates or embassies have strict guidelines as to what type of bags/purses/cellphones etc can be carried in. And whether they provide any lockers (or not) for temp storage. As many travel from far away (by air/train/cars, one needs to specially know what they will not be able to take inside the consulate and where to store their personal belongings.




Here are some FAQ and other tidbits that may be useful to you. Be sure to visit your countries portal and click on the Consular Information and also Consular reviews.



I just called and got Case Complete how long does it take to get the email as confirmation?
Well it has been taking 5 to 7 days to get case complete email from the date they Case Complete.
How long after Case Complete will I get an interview?
Okay this is the BIG mystery of NVC. How it usually goes is end of the month and first week of month they start scheduling for interviews for the that upcoming month. Since January they have been pretty consistent starting about the last 2 days of the month and finishing that following first week of next  month
Do I have to call for my interview date?
NVC has improved greatly since March. The interview letter now comes day of schedule. So call if you want its up to you.
I know someone who got interview in the middle of the month. How is that possible?
Usually when you see someone pop up with an interview outside the bunch its usually the result of a cancellation or the embassy opening up a slot. Just because scheduling stops doesn't mean they filled up all slots. They may have more slots than appointments which is good. So someone gets case complete and immediately they get an interview. It happens.
Remember every embassy has its own slots and schedule. Some like El Salvador are very busy with a long waiting list. Some like Yemen, well it may be a few months to get in. Iceland you get interview immediately scheduled after case Complete.
I need to change our interview date what do I do?
Once you receive your interview date track your casefile. Call NVC ask when your casefile left than you can follow the DHL instructions to embassy. The contact your embassy (email is best) and ask to be rescheduled later, earlier just ask.
What do I need to bring to interview?
When you receive your P4 Letter (Interview letter) it will have your personalized checklist of things to bring or not. It has been suggested because things have been lost between NVC and embassy to bring everything (Originals) to the interview so if they don't have at embassy you aren't delayed.It's up to you. It doesn't happen much but it does happen.
Just to remind everyone to revisit the NVC Process Wiki, NVC Process Wiki

Thanks to Fabian&Ross for spelling this all out. Once you get the interview letter reference this.



You must bring the following items to the visa interview:

  1. Any original documents the NVC requested that you did not submit (refer to the document list below)
  2. If the physician gives you your medical exam results, bring them to your interview in the envelope sealed by the medical office.
  3. Two passport photographs measuring 2 inches by 2 inches (5 cm by 5 cm) with a white background
  4. A valid unexpired passport
  5. Photocopies of all civil documents
  6. A new police certificate from your current country of residence, if you obtained the police certificate more than one year ago.
  7. Any additional documents listed in the U.S. Embassy or Consulate specific interview guidelines


The following table lists the documents requested by the NVC and whether or not you submitted them to the
NVC. Please note that even though you may have provided the NVC with a copy of a document, you are
still required to bring the original document to the visa interview.

Refer to the Document Status Code Definitions (see key below) to determine the meaning of the document status codes.

Document Name Document Status.



The interview letter is divided into separate sections. The one I highlighted in all red tells you what you must bring to the interview (in general). Another section lists all the docs you may have already submitted to NVC along with one-letter codes next to each document (also highlighted in red). There is a third section that gives you the definition of each of these one-letter codes. For example, code "O" next to "3 - BIRTH CERTIFICATE" means you submitted that doc to NVC and NVC already sent it to the embassy.


(A) Obtain this document and present it at your interview

© You must bring this entire interview letter to your interview

(D) The NVC sent this form or document to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate

If there's anything of value you would think will help the betterment of all and you feel it should be added please let me know. I want this thread and the spreadsheets to help everyone in this Journey. :goofy:


Canada: LOOMIS Delivers your VISA after interview. Be sure to check your forum for  Loomis Delivery information or your country portal.


Jamaica: DHL delivers your VISA after Interview. Check your country portal for information


India: You must register after you get your P4 letter for your Biometrics appointment online.Please check your embassy for more information.



STATUS Explanation On CEAC.GOV.

Just a little "fine tuning" after "AT NVC"...

"IN TRANSIT" means that NVC has entered your packet into the DHL system. Your status will stay "IN TRANSIT" while your packet is still physically at NVC, even though it has been entered into the DHL system (sometimes 24-48 hours), and during the time your packet is moving through the DHL system.

Your status will not turn to "READY" until the Embassy/Consulate has received your packet from DHL and physically scanned it into THEIR system. So...your packet could physically be at the Embassy/Consulate's mail site (often the mail site is a different building from the actual Embassy), and DHL could say the packet has been delivered, but until the Embassy/Consulate logs it in, it will still be "IN TRANSIT".

The case officers/consulate officers at the Embassy/Consulate will not know anything about your packet until your status changes to "READY". That is why, if you are trying to shift your interview date, you must not contact your Embassy/Consulate until the status is "READY". Until them, you are not in their system and they cannot "see" you.

In some Embassy/Consulates, there is a lag time between the interview approval and the time the visa foil (the page that is glued into your passport) is printed. During this time, your status is "ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSING". Until the visa foil is physically printed and glued into your passport, you will not see "ISSUED".

You thank you for this BY: Sukie in NY

I woke up at 4am and got to the embassy at 5:25am. This was my 1st time of being in lagos and I didn't want to experience the much talked about traffic.
At 6:30am, the security guard addressed us and I went through all the security screenings.
After watching and waiting for almost 3 hrs, I heard the young Caucasian lady at window 4 call my name. And here are the questions she asked.
who petitioned for u?
how did u meet?
how many times has he visited u.
how often do you talk.
can u show me pictures and phone logs?
what does he do?
What do u like about him?
where does he live?
when do you intend to travel?
And then she reached for her shelve, handed me two papers and said your visa has been approved. pick up your passport at this location.
I didn't know whether to scream, dance or cry. I was so happy. I had met my fiance on a dating website in 2012 in April 2013 he visited Nigeria the 1st time he ever traveled outside US.He came back in September and proposed. He also visited in 2014. Our petition was filled July 2014.
A long distance relationship is challenging and difficult but our faith in God and genuine love for each other has prevailed. It just takes time and patience.
Kindly note these:
1)The CO are smart so be honest.
2)pictures, phone logs, western union transactions slips, are important. A guy was declined because he didn't have any of these evidence.
3) Be confident and smile,have constant eye contact.
4) Ask them to repeat any questions they ask you that isn't clear to u. Don't assume so u don't give the wrong answer. They will use that against u.
5) if you don't know an answer, don't guess. Just tell them u don't know.
6) Have every information sent in by the petitioner so u don't contradict yourself.
7) most importantly, have faith in God. I sincerely hope that someone finds this helpful as I did with other post from here before my interview. I can't wait to be with the love of my life.

Hubby's feedback. We're sooo happy

My appt was for 10 am. My wife arrived in Lagos on Sunday to celebrate our anniversary and to accompany me to the interview.
I arrived at 8am. I walked in and met the security guards. I was asked to go outside to open my medical report.
My bag was searched then I was asked to sit in a sequential order. I waited about 5 hours to be called.
I walked up to the window of a nice Caucasian man i his 30s or so. He was super nice and even pronounced my difficult name correctly. I smiled.
I brought along with me mor photos, more chat logs, call records and huge rims of paper of chat logs from every app we used. Wifey said they already have tons of evidence and this was way too many papers but I was not taking any chances. I lugged everything but the kitchen sink with me. As soon as I walked up to his window he gave me back my photos that we sent at the USCIS and NVC stage without saying a word. At that point I got scared like omg why is he returning my photos,
He proceeded to ask me the following

Questions asked
1. What is your wife's name?

2. How many children does she have from her previous marriage

3. Have you been married before?

4. What are the ages of her kids and their names?

5. Interestingly enough he harbored on a few more questions pertaining to the oldest child which was ok sense I'm close with them.

6. He mentioned when my wife got divorced.

Then he pulled out 2 papers in silence, then said mr victor U can pick Up your visa from this location on this paper next week!

You're good to go!

I carried all the evidences back home. I tried to trick my wife outside but I couldn't hide my big smile!!!!

Our anniversary is tomorrow!
