From the time you get SIF within 24-48 hrs they close your case & AVR gets updated with case complete status.

I got SIF on July 25th so I called NVC and they said its in a final review stage and told me to wait for 24-48 hrs for them to close out the case. On July 27th when I called NVC I heard the AVR say that your case is completed on July 26th.

Trust me I know the feeling!! This process makes most people second-guess themselves at some point!!

I'm sure it will be ok. I haven't heard of anyone getting a SIF then having problems getting their CC. That's not to say that it couldn't happen, I'm just saying I've never seen it (or read about it I should say).

Good luck :)
