Hi guys,

I just mailed my IV payment and want to send in my DS-230 as soon its generated in NVC system. How long after should I mail it? I do want my process to be completed asap but also do not want NVC to get suspicious. Should I wait a week or so or should I send it in as soon as IVR says its generated?

Can someone please post a link to updated James shortcuts as well.

Thanks!

Do you have all required documents for DS-230? These documents must be in original or certified copy. Certified copies are copies certified by issuing agency and not by a notary.

* DS-230 - part 1 and 2 (remember do NOT sign part 2)

* Birth Certificate

* Court and Prison Record

* Deportation Documentation

* Marriage Certificate

* Photocopy of Valid Passport Biographic Data Page

* Police Certificate(s)

There's really no timeframe. You have to wait until NVC generates your DS-230 packet. You cant send it without it being generated first.

I have all the docs, pictures and everything. I was just wondering how long should I wait after NVC's IVR systems says my DS-230 is generated? Should I just mail it the very next day, wait a week or so?
