Additional Info on NVC Process

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I hadn't seen this posted anywhere else...so please delete or ignore if this is redundant.

NOTE- many acronyms are used here. Please do not ask what they are, they are available in the Guides and the Wiki.

1. CISC Sends Package to NVC

2. NVC Scans Package - This marries the CISC receipt number to your newly generated NVC number which is based on

EEEYYYYOOOSSS

E = 3 digit embassy code (example TKY for Tokyo)

Y = 4 digit code for year (example 2008)

O = 3 digit code for Ordinal date plus 500 (example Aug 28 = 241st ordinal day ADD 500 = 741)

S = Sequence number of the day (if you were the second approval scanned, your code would be 002)

Full Example of NVC case number = TKY2008741002

3. Once your package has been scanned, it COULD update into the AVR (automated voice response system).

If it is uploaded to the AVR, you will be able to retrieve it with your CISC receipt number.

If is scanned but not in the AVR, an operator can tell you the NVC number.

4. Documents still need to be fully loaded in manually.

Until such time that documents are fully loaded in, NVC will not generate or accept DS3032 (Choice of Agent) via email or US Postal Mail.

Attempts to send DS3032 via email, may or may not receive an automated response...but the automated response does

not mean it's been accepted.

5. Once all documents are fully loaded in, the AVR might change.

Operators will be able to tell you if the DS3032 has been generated.

If the DS3032 has been generated, you can email (See the Wiki for address and format)

Once accepted, you will get an email message...or can confirm with opeartor.

6. Once all documents are fully loaded in, you can attempt to get your IIN (invoice identification number) from an operator.

The IIN allows you to pay the AOS and IV bills online.

If you are unable to obtain your IIN, you can use "James Shortcuts" (in the Wiki) to create your own AOS bill and send the payment in the mail.

All other steps are well detailed in both James Shortcuts and Lotto's Fastest Process.

Hope this helps give a little more insight into what happens at NVC

Best of luck on your journey.
