Confusion over what to do for nvc

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok..

We have received our NOA 2 and letter..and I am wanting to get the NVC process going and completed.

There seems to be some conflicting advice over the next steps, especially based on the embassy.

What can I do now as I wait for the letter for the NVC?

(I have already received letter from the USCIS, but it has no NVC number)

Also, there is absolutely no way to mail my husband anything in Nepal. He never gets anything i send, unless it is by DHL or special courier service.

I am afraid whatever the NVC has to mail to him, he will not receive! Can it be mailed to the embassy instead? And he can pick it up there?

Sorry, to sound so confused!! But, I appreciate all help and advice.

About a week after your NOA2 date, start calling up NVC and see if they have a case number assigned. You'll have to give them your USCIS receipt number, so have that handy. As soon as the case number has been assigned, give them both your email addresses, that way all correspondence will be sent by email, and not snail mail.

Please read the guides for more info:

Thank you so much!!

I called today and got our NVC number and gave our e-mails!!

How long from here?? If I have everything else ready?? :-)

(I am not anxious or anything... haha)

Your AOS should be invoiced soon. And after you email the DS-3032, it'll be accepted within a few days and then the IV bill will be invoiced. If you have all packages ready now, you can have everything mailed out by the end of next week for sure. Then another 2-3 weeks to review the packages, and if no RFEs, then a case complete.

Just want to double check...

I can E-MAIL the DS 3032?? I have it already...and got and paid the 88$ fee today.

So, I can e-mail his form with his signature?? Right??

Yeah you can if you got the email requesting the form ds 3032...just FYI if you haven't then they won't accept it until they request it from you....

That sent you should get a response within a day or two and receive the IV bill...and should receive an email not long after that tells you what they need for the ds230 packet. Or at least that's what happened with us. They will be sending emails to both accounts from now on including the interview letter and packet.
