Always double and triple check what DOS and NVC humans tell you

22 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Varying levels of operator competence and usefulness are a given.

Our application was sent to Guangzhou April 13th. Until just now, I was under the impression that it was sent by DHL, not electronically.

To get a DHL tracking number and give myself something to make myself feel like I have some control over the Visa Fates, I called DOS today using this handy-dandy guide.

I was pleased to find out that it had been indeed sent electornically, and in fact the P3 had been sent almost a week ago. cool.gifkicking.gif

But I am ticked off that NVC told me it was sent by DHL. I'm going to have to finish out the I-134 tonight and send it out tomorrow, instead of having a few more weeks to handle it. Oh well, what's one more night this week with 4 hours sleep? sad.gif

Also, I was under the impression that case files sent to GUZ electronically got a new GZO case number assigned to them. This is not true for K-1 Visas at least. blink.gif

ya, the NVC starts getting a bit useless after you have a GUZ #, but DoS Hotline will know many things about the casefile once it's left NVC.

Glad you found the list that Dodi and I put together, though -

Maybe can use the P3 shortcut after all? http://www.visajourney.com/wiki/index.php/GUZ_P3_Shortcut

Great post!!

I'm still at NVC, so as you suggested, I'll double and triple check what they tell me.

By the way, your timeline says

Packet 3 Received : 2011-05-14

Packet 3 Sent : 2011-06-18

Is June 18th your target date to send in Packet 3 or did you have a typo and meant packet 3 sent on May 18th? :)

I'm following timelines to get an idea of when to expect our Packet 3, etc.

Thank you :)

Case Left NVC!! (finally) :yes:

After being told last Tuesday by an NVC operator that my case was under "additional processing", I called DOS this morning at 7:30am EST. After 6 minutes on hold, I got the good news that my case is on its way to the consulate!! :)

The DOS visa specialist could only tell me that my case was sent recently. So I called NVC, and was told my case was sent out from NVC last Friday.

So YES, definitely double and triple check what the DOS and NVC humans tell you. Great advice!! :)

Bobby, I was told that my file was uploaded electronically to the consulate. I haven't gotten a straight answer yet on if it was solely via SAFEFILE or not. I hope that DHL is not getting involved. :whistle:

Hopefully in the next day or two I'll have that resolved. :D

Vince, I sure hope our files went electronically because I couldn't find anything going to China in June with DHL tracking. All I found were two shipments in May:

EXP 19 MAY 2011A - shipped out on May 20th, still waiting for clearance in Guangzhou

EXP 05 MAY 2011A - shipped out on May 6th, cleared customs and delivered to the consulate on May 18th.

Bobby, I was told that my file was uploaded electronically to the consulate. I haven't gotten a straight answer yet on if it was solely via SAFEFILE or not. I hope that DHL is not getting involved. :whistle:

Hopefully in the next day or two I'll have that resolved. :D

Vince,

I called DOS this morning at 8:32am EST, I was put on hold for 30 minutes. I gave the nice lady my case number, and she told me Guangzhou mailed out Packet 3 to my fiancee!! I asked her when they mailed it, she said this past Wednesday.

After I hang up, I was too happy to think of anything else but to text my fiancee and tell her the good news.

Later I realized that the DOS lady didn't even ask for our names and DOB's before giving me the information :D So I called again at 11am EST, this time a lady asked for all the details and confirmed that Packet 3 was sent. However, she could not tell me when it was sent :D

So yes, double and triple check, because each "human" handle our cases differently and they may not give the same information each time :)

Vince, please call DOS and let us know if the consulate received your file and sent out Packet 3 :) I got my NVC letter yesterday with our case number. Have you received your NVC/DOS letter with case number yet?

My fiancee mailed out her Packet 3 yesterday.

Good luck to you and yours!! :)
