NVC Processing Time

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So, on April 12th I received my NOA 2, I-129f approval from the California Service Center. Since then, two weeks and two days later, I have received no additional official word from either the CSC or the NVC. I have made countless calls to the NVC working my way up to the Director of Telephone Inquiries (whatever that is) and though the Director is very sympathetic she says no one knows where my application is.

So, my question, how long should it take for the CSC to send the application to the NVC and the NVC to log it in? Is two weeks and two days outside the norm? The Director said as of last Friday the NVC was processing applications recived April 20, a date that should be well after mine was received.

I'm just going nuts here. Tomorrow I will go back to the CSC and make them swear they sent the application on the 12th like they said they did before I go back to the NVC and tell them it must be there! Any thoughts? Thanks, Casper

I am not sure where the post is here on site but you can track the DHL shippment from NVC to embassy. I am not sure if you are speaking of from USCIS to NVC? I would not be sure of that side of things. Good Luck

I think the OP is asking about his approved I-129F package which should have been sent from CSC to the NVC.

I think they should have atleast sent it out to NVC by now,and if it has gotten into AP in the NVC stage then it could justify taking time reaching the embassy.

But you might want to check out the October CSC or VSC thread,there was a vj member whose approved application got lost!! They were so careless so as to actually lose their package.

I hope truly it is not the case with you,but do keep pressing them for more information.I wish you hear some encouraging news soon.

There is a time when Congressional inquiry might help, but I don't think you are there yet. You no doubt have a file with everything in it up 'till the last USCIS notice. You might call your Rep. and ask how long is it lost before being officially lost. Congress has liasons at USCIS and I believe NVC too. Just brainstorming though, but they might want you to wait a few weeks more before they jump in.

Not sure if NVC is all that responsive to telephone calls, but assuming USCIS has sent the file, it could already be in Kiev. By the time we received the notice it had been processed by NVC, it was already in the embassy.

You might have your fiancee call the embassy to see if her file has arrived. :thumbs:

Thanks, David. I was asking about time from the USCIS (CSC) to the NVC.

Thanks Anwesha. I'll check out the October forum. I can't believe they would lose it... but maybe!

Thanks Brad, my favorite Senator's aide has been out of town all this week. I'll send her an e-mail tonight and hope she jumps on it on Monday. It seems my last best shot!

Thanks 1HG. My understanding is that the apps. must all go through the NVC before going to an embassy. The NVC is saying they have not received the app. from the CSC.

Does your Hardcopy of NOA2 , says that your

1> " case is forwarded to listed consulate" ?

OR

2> "does it say that your approved case is transferred to NVC" ?

Let us know if the call helps. I have read here before about delays at NVC caused by processing issues, usually meaning the name check is taking awhile or there was a flag somewhere. Also lots of posts about unexplained weeks of delay, but the files usually turn up at some point at the embassy.
