Does NVC work on weekends?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Our case got to NVC 8 days ago. I called today, but it still hasn't been forwarded to the embassy.

Do you guys know if NVC works on weekends? When you count the days since your petition got to NVC until today's date do you also include Sat and Sun or just Mon through Fri?

Thanks

here is a good link: http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_3179.html

The NVC is operated by a private contractor with more than 400 employees. The Department of State has five supervisory employees who work there. The FBI has one employee assigned to the NVC.

The NVC receives between 15,000 and 20,000 petitions from the CIS of the following types:

* I-130 – Relative

* I-140 – Employee

* I-129F – Fiancé

* I-129 – K1 and K3 LIFE Act

* I-600/A – Orphan

* I-730 – Asylee/Refugee

* I-529 – Investment

* I-360 – Special Immigrant

When an approved petition is received by the NVC, it is placed into one of three categories (expedite, current, non-current), and sorted by visa classification and priority date. The NVC enters the remaining data that has not already been transferred electronically from the CIS to the NVC. The NVC then assigns a case number which consists of the three letter consular post designator, the Julian date (+500) and the number of petitions designated for that particular post that day.

Typically, the NVC has approximately two million files on hand on any particular day. Bar codes are used to track transfers and file locations and prevent misfiling or other record loss.

Expedite files consist of the following types of filings:

* I-129F – Fiancé

* I-129 – K1 and K3 LIFE Act

* I-730 – Asylee/Refugee

* I-600/A – Orphan

These files and processed and transferred to overseas consular posts within one week of initial receipt. The only exception is in cases where a security advisory opinion is required. In such cases, the NVC will forward the case together with the security advisory opinion when it is received.
