NVC AVR update, Docs received

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Called to check AVR, message just got updated, was "IV fee bill was generated 8-18 .."

Now says "NVC received your documents, please allow 6 to 8 weeks to review your documents."

So, now the myth of Tues Fri only AVR update is proven false.

And rumors of AVR not updating with IV fee paid and 864 entered are true.

So now another nervous wait.. hope it's not going to take 6-8 weeks. Any ideas how long it really takes?

After case complete, how long to the interview date assignment?

Anyone can tell how long is the interview wait in Moscow for IR-1 ?

Feedback would be greatly appreciated!

AVR just updated to "IV Fee Bill Generated...."

It was the first AVR update for me.

From what I've seen, once all your docs are in, it's 1 to 2 weeks before you get a Case Complete.

Good luck...hope it happens for you even faster.

Fedup, I was trying to find the thread where someone told about interview dates for Russia. Unfortunately could not find the link. Her name (user name ) was Eugenya (hopefully right spelling). She told that interview for Russia scheduled already up to Oct, 19 and she also hoping to get late October date. I am not sure about a source of that information, but I know that there is Russian forum and pretty informative too. They have statistics as well and also they are sharing information about scheduling. http://www.russian-fiancee.com/rus/forum/index.php

Hope it helps with a ball park estimation

About my experience with AVR-it's terrible and probably unique. I spoke to operator today and he confirmed that my AOS Bill went through. I paid on 08/27, it was in process, and then it stays as "NOT PAID" (which is bothering me a lot, because I am aware that sometimes it go back to not paid , but next day it shows either In Process again, or PAID, but it's already 3 rd day stays as NOT PAID after I actually paid ). But at least operator could see that transaction.And that they received my DS 3032 (which i sent just yesterday). A min ago my IV Fee Bill changed from "NOT INVOICED" to "NOT PAID" online ,which means they not just got my DS 3032 but also entered it in the system.

A lot of changes, however AVR still saying " We don't have a record of your case". I wish I could hear that status to be ever changed to anything else, even outdated, but different....

It's very tempting to pay now IV Fee Bill since it's just got changed to "Not Paid" instead of Not Invoiced status online, should I do it or I need to wait a little???

Thanks for the interview info. I saw the Evgeniya thread, not sure it's 100% correct, I looked also at the online US Embassy schedule, looks like they still will have Oct scheduling available.. will see..

I paid IV fee as soon as it was "not paid" online. See my timeline in signature. It went through ok, but I did have AVR updates, which did say "IV feel bill generated" Monday after I paid Saturday. Then Tuesday it cleared the bank and posted online NVC as PAID. About AVR, it is weird. I did post a few remarks on this, there is a thread in NVC forum about it. I would say do not pay attention to this, just call if anything, and pay online and print cover sheet right away when "paid". Just go as you should, and AVR might catch up with you, even if it's by the time you are "case complete" :yes:

Edited by Ilya R.

Here is my story. I've lived problem free life, payed my taxes. One day I decided to marry this girl. But to do so would require her to come to US of A, and so it started. My problem free live turned in to free problems from USCIS! Sure things turned to unsure, certain dates turned to aproximation within months. All logical thinking was out the door, as I filed my papers withing famous Vermont Centre!

Have a look at the info here...

http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.ph...amp;pid=2162701

Then look at the Wiki or do a search for James' Shortcuts.

YOu don't have to wait for the AVR...and don't have to wait 6-8 weeks.

good luck

Yes, I do.

NicoleX08, they do have a standard replies, but you do not have to wait, call AVR or operator, get INN, pay online, and move the case. If you will wait for their replies in the mail it will drag for months..
