I would recommend at least 5 business days before your interview date. It's a 2-day medical exam, first day usually will take 3-4 hours, second day for the results which in my case took 3 hours.

Hi yang. I need to ask you something about NVC process. I hope you can help me with this.

Who sends the AOS and DS230 packets to NVC? Is it going to be my hubby? DS23O is the IV packet right?

Is he going to prepare these documents for the IV packet?

a. Bar-coded cover sheet

b. 2 Passport-sized photographs of the beneficiary

c. Completed and signed form DS-230 Part 1 by the beneficiary

d. Completed and 'unsigned' form DS-230 Part 2 by the beneficiary

e. Photocopy of the biographic data page of the beneficiary's passport

f. Original/Certified birth certificate of the beneficiary

g. Original/Certified marriage certificate of the beneficiary and the petitioner

h. Original police certificate(s) of the beneficiary

i. Original/Certified divorce decree of the beneficiary's prior marriage(s), if applicable

j. Original military certificate of the beneficiary, if applicable

k. 1 set Photocopy of all the above civil documentsWe don't know the whole process but we are hoping to shorten the NVC processing.

We just hope we will spend our first Christmas together. :blush:

Thanks.

Hello!

I was the one who filled out the DS230 (IV packet). I answered the forms and left the part I unsigned, gathered all the docs that we needed here like NSO copies of my birth certificate and our marriage contract, my NBI, biographic copy of my passport, and my 2x2 photos. I sent them all to my husband and he sent altogether (Affidavit of Support and DS230) to NVC. He put them in 2 different envelopes (AOS and DS230) and wrote their corresponding addresses (on each envelope) and he sent them in one big package via FedEx.

Hope your papers will fly through NVC too! :thumbs:

Seriously?..3 weeks before the interview?

Jadeleaf is from New Zealand.. He/She was just saying that's how it goes in their country. Why not make it a week before you interview date? Just to make sure the embassy will have it before your interview day. You've come this far, you don't want any delays for sure..

If St. Luke's will allow you to bring the result yourself, then, it won't be a problem. Otherwise, you have to have your medical done at least 4-7 days prior to your interview.

Good Luck!

Hello VJ's,

Here i go again...i need some suggestions. My visa interview will be on 28th of July. But i need to do the medical examination first before the interview, can i just do my Medical on 25th-26th, isn't it a problem?..How long does the medical get done?

I would suggest that if you can do it now, do it as if the xray does not turn out or they need to call you back in for re-test, which is very rare then at least it will not put off your interview as these are normally alotted around a month before and could set you back if your medical results are delayed in getting to the USEM
