hi everyone! :) I'm new here and it's my first time to start a forum and i just want to ask you guys if what's our next step..my husband got our NVC # 4 days ago and we also gave our e-mail address to the operator..And until this time we didn't received any e-mail or letter coming from them..

is it right if I mail the DS-3032 at this time?or should we wait for e-mail or feedback from the NVC??

kindly help me with this.. :help:

Once you have your NVC case number, its ok to send the DS 3032, no need to wait for anything from NVC first.

You'll need to get your Invoice Identification Number from the operator (they're pretty nice IMO) and log into this site..... Invoice Sign In and pay your AOS bill. That was the first generated for us. Sending the 3032, just do it via email once or twice if you feel it's needed. We sent it about 4 times in different formats and they responded to all 4 . :bonk: What got movement for us was using the form they send you via email, sign it and scan it, then emailed it back to them. (it'll have a barcode on it) . Our IV package/ ds 230 is being delivered in two days :dance: so wish us luck with the NVC (AOS has already been received) . Just follow the instructions and you can send in the info/packages as soon as you get the barcoded coversheets from NVC website / post payment clearing. Best of luck from us!!!

I second that! DO NOT WAIT for snail mail from NVC. Once you have your case #, you can send in your DS-3032. Use the email template. Get your Invoice I.D. # from the human. Then you can log on to the payment portal and pay your AOS and IV fees. Once the fees are marked PAID, you can print the bar-coded Document Cover Sheet(s), and send in your AOS and your IV packages. Things can move very quickly at NVC. It all depends on how fast you want them to move. Once you have submitted your AOS and IV packages, SIF and CC could be within a few days depending on whether or not you receive RFE(s). Send your AOS and IV via certified mail (return receipt requested). GOOD LUCK!!!

What is the advantage of having the petitioner as the "agent" with the DS-3032?

The turnabout time on anything that gets mailed out from NVC is my guess. Doesn't have to go overseas to be opened.
