Simple:

On the home page 'State Country' USA

Point to 'Track' on the menu bar - then select 'Track by Reference'

In 'Reference' type in - expedite iv section

Then enter the dates from and to

Click on 'Track' at the bottom of the screen

Just check daily to see when a parcel left for your embassy - there's no guarantee that your case is in that particular package but its a good indication. Ours took approx 2 weeks to appear on screen but once it arrives in the country it takes a couple of days to get to the embassy. I would suggest that you send an email to the embassy asking them to let you know when they receive your case. Which is what we did and sure enough they complied.

Wow, that is by far the best tip I've heard on VJ. Thank you!!!

I don't see any signs of my package eventhough NVC claims to have mailed it on 7/26. And also, unfortunetly not all embassies are that helpful.
