I am tired with the game that the NVC playing with me. First they told me to send DS230-I and passport photocopy, then they sent me a checklist for missing documents, which are birth certificate, marriage certificate and DS230-II. After responding that, while I was waiting for my case to be completed, they have prepared another checklist for missing document which is benificiary's photograph. As soon as I have heard that, I have overnighted it. Now wait another 2-4 weeks to learn some other documents are missing ! What those could be? My wife's bood, flesh, skin.....................

Regarding the photographs for the DS-230, there is a thread about this in the NVC forum, apparently NVC has changed the requirements - but not posted them anywhere:

I am confused - is one required to send these into the NVC prior to an interview being scheduled? Maybe I misunderstand, but I thought they are to be brought to the interview with the applicant?

Yes you are required to send them to NVC, some consulates are not appointment posts - but San Jose is an 'Appointment' post, therefore your documents are submitted to NVC.

Check out the link below - chose your consulate from the drop down menu. On the next page you will see instructions on what you need to send with your DS-230 when NVC requests it:

NVC keeps changing rules and we are suffering, that's a pain. Another pain is people around me who are following this visa processing thinking me stupid, as if I was unable to follow NVC's instructions and keep receiving RFEs...................

can someone tell me how long it takes the visa to expire?

I heard 6 months..but I read 4 months somewhere else..

and also.. Once you get the visa and cannot come right away... what happens with the green card? For instance my husband cannot come right after he gets the visa and so he is just planning to come 5 months after getting the visa (before the expiration) ..in this case what will happen with his green card?

QUICK REPLY NEEDED PLZ

I agree. It's a tremendous amount of paperwork and processing. It's amazing anyone can jump through all the hoops without making a few mistakes.

Yes and as you mention, the 'rules' keep changing. Why are we required to send in things they don't tell us about? I actually have a theory on this. I think they assume that most people will be using a lawyer who - through the grapevine, or bulletins, will somehow get this information.

This process is not designed to be user friendly. They also don't care if you get an RFE for items they don't request in their instructions :thumbs:

Anyway Shamim, hang in there, I went through a lot of hassles with NVC too - eventually it gets approved :)

You are almost there. Too bad that NVC is changing some rules at the same time without notifying the agent properly. But you are almost at the finish line!


I-130 Timeline with USCIS:

It took 92 days for I-130 to get approved from the filing date

NVC Process of I-130:

It took 78 days to complete the NVC process

Interview Process at The U.S. Embassy

Interview took 223 days from the I-130 filing date. Immigrant Visa was issued right after the interview
