Ok, so far, I'm just looking for a general idea of what date NVC is actually on.  Last I checked, they received my documents for the Visa application (DS-260) on July 10.  Initially, they told me 2-4 weeks to review.  I called at 4 weeks, they told me 6 weeks.  Then I got a notice saying they were backlogged and there was a 60 day wait.  I called at 6 weeks now for the hell of it, and I asked specifically when I should receive an answer, and 2 separate times, I was told, By September 10...  60 Days...  What the hell is going on?  I asked them, "3 month wait, correct?", and got yelled at that it was 60 days, not business days.  Both times this happened.  Extremely rude.  Before I could ask any other info, they would always yell out, "NO, Sir...".  Irritated the absolute hell out of me.  I never got any rude people from NVC before until yesterday, and today when I called.  I was simply trying to ask what dates, if any knowledge, they were currently working on, so I had SOME idea how close.  Anyone here that sent NVC their documents for a CR-1, and they recieved them before July 10 get the notice that it was approved yet?  Very frustrating.  2 more weeks I guess...  And this last process is absolutely killing my wife...  And I am being literal, she is starting to get bouts of depression, and starting to worry me.  We just want this process over with...  It's agonizing!

We supplied the requested documents Aug 4th.  Since then we have been in administrative processing with up dates on the 13th, 15th 18th on the 19th the visa status update changed to ready. Today the 20th the updated changed back to admin. process. This seems to happen with some frequency to VJ members. We are in Thailand if that makes a difference. The paperwork for the 221-g was for our daughters medical also further domicile proof. Any ideas on what to expect next?

arrowTranslator's Certification

I'll be soon submitting an application for a US Visa for my wife.


Below is copied and pasted from the Instructions regarding translation of foreign language documents.


Any foreign language document must be accompanied by a full English translation that the translator has certified as complete and correct, and by the translator’s certification that he or she is competent to translate the foreign language into English.


I submitted Thai language documents for translation to English via email.  They were promptly translated and hard-copies mailed and soft-copies emailed to me.  I paid by bank transfer.  No problem.  The translated docs are stamped, "Certified complete and correct translation" and signed by the translator.


I subsequently (repeatedly) asked, via email, for the "translator's certification", but I get no response.


(1) What exactly is the "translator's certification?"  Is this similar to a business license? 


(2) Is the United States Citizen Immigrant Services really strict about seeing a copy of the translator's certification?


(3) Why are they ignoring my email?  I used what appears to be a very large translation company in BKK.

I printed out the homepage of the translation company's website.  Can this suffice as proof of their validity?
