What does the NVC do?

As the title states. Our petition was approved and sent to the NVC.

I have visited the NVC site and browsed through their FAQs... as well as the FAQs on VJ and done a few searches but I cannot find the details.

What does the NVC do with our petition / package?

During my search... I read that the NVC has actually sent out RFEs to people. So this only makes me more inquisitive.

Thanks for the info.

Once your petition is approved and then sent to NVC it is there for a week or so assigned a case number which is then sent on to the beneficiaries consulate. embassy in their home country. You can read all this on NVC website. Once all petition papers are at beneficiaries consulate you will then be sent a packet 3 information. The beneficiary then collects all the documents they will need to send in and then once that is all accepted you will be notified of interview if that's how it works in beneficiaries country.

At the National Visa Center your approved petition and packet will be checked, once again, for additional background checks. Then, it is repackaged and sent to the appropriate consulate. I have read of some petitions being "stuck" at NVC for a long time as additional processing is under way. Yet, for most K1 visa petitions, this is the quickest part of the process (only taking 1 to 2 weeks). I would recommend that you call NVC at the phone number listed in your receipt notice (NOA 2) and ask for your assigned case number. You may be pleasantly surprised (as I was yesterday) and may find out that you have not only been assigned a case number, but your petition packet may be on its way to your fiance(e)'s consulate!

Best wishes! (F)

What benefit do you get from learning what your assigned case number is? Do you get to process your items faster? Or is more a comfort benefit of knowing that it is there? Thanks!

That's what I was looking for. I was asking what the NVC does with the packet. This particular information wasn't available on the NVC website.

Thanks Aztec&Taino!

I'm hoping time doesn't run out because I'm going to be in Thailand for 3 weeks starting on the 4th of February. I will miss the physical mail they send me. I will check in via phone though. I'm hoping the package is forwarded straight to the embassy with no problems.

Now I just have to work on this troublesome I-134.

I keep calling the NVC phone number and getting a busy signal everytime. Anyone know why?

Frankly, because the line is busy. Call late a night or hit the redial button until you get through.
