NVC Pilot Program

Does anyone know about his? I was reading and found out just now. I am not sure how reliable this is. They said it would be much faster. http://guangzhou.usembassy-china.org.cn/iv_k1/k2.htm

This new program may speed things a little for K visas but it's theoretically going to be a real timesaver for the CR1 and IR1.

See this note for K visa applicants.

Please Note: The NVC electronic processing project for K visa (fiancée/spouse non-immigrant visa), has different procedures. For these cases, although the petitions are loaded electronically, the U.S. Consulate in Guangzhou still contacts visa beneficiaries to provide more documents prior to interview scheduling.

If you are a K visa applicant and you have opted in for electronic processing, you will still have to wait for paper Instructions via mail from the Consulate.

now i understand why it is taking so long for people in china to get a fiance visa. I don't remember ever seeing a place where you could sign up for a electronic processing. If this is faster, how can we change now?

Even so, it sounds like the old way takes 3 to 4 months to send paper docs from NVC to China Consulate, and with this pilot program, it'll be couple days. That saves more than 3 months!

The trouble is that the reliability of the pilot program is not known. If things go wrong, it might end up taking more time.

And about the 3 to 4 months time to send docs from NVC to China Consulate, I hope it's not true.

Theoretically yes. However, the "sending" isn't the problem. The delay is all about GUZ not taking delivery of packages sitting in the nearby DHL warehouse until they are ready to act on them. With this electronic program, they can simply not act on information stored on their server instead of papers in a warehouse. The problem is more work than staff, resulting in a backlog. Electronic processing won't do a thing to solve the "too much work for the existing staff", problem. Until I see them actually send out a P3 for a K visa or an interview letter for a CR1 or IR1 sooner, I'm going to hold on any predictions of shorter timelines.

Where this shortens the timelines on typical immigrant visa cases (not K3) is that documents will no longer be mailed across the ocean both ways during the NVC stage of the process. I say "typical" because if you use the shortcuts, you have the documents all ready before NVC requests them anyway. The typical case doesn't use the shortcuts.

When I look at timeline like http://www.visajourney.com/timeline/profile.php?id=67197

I-129F NOA2 : 2009-05-19

NVC Received : 2009-05-27

NVC Left : 2009-05-27

Consulate Received : 2009-05-28

Packet 3 Received : 2009-06-04

I wonder if they used this new pilot program
