Hi all, I'm currently waiting for a case number for my wife's i-130 petition. I know mostly how the NVC process will work. I know what documents I need for the AOS package and for the IV package; but what I am confused about is that I have read many times that the NVC will mail a package to my wife's foreign address. However, I've also heard that all correspondence can now be done through email. Which is currently true? I thought that previously the NVC needed all original/certified copies of birth certificates, marriage certificates etc. How is it all done through email if original documents are required? I need some clarification so any seasoned NVC vets out there feel free to clear this question up for me! Please and thanks for your replies. :)

If you give both email addresses over to an operator upon getting a case number assigned, NVC will send all correspondence to the petitioner and beneficiary by email. If NVC does not have any email addresses on record, then they have no choice but to snail mail it. You're confusing Electronic Processing into the mix. This is when the petitioner and beneficiary can email packages to NVC. Indonesia is NOT an eligible country for this. But if you do the above (give email addresses over), you can at least RECEIVE correspondence by email. You still have to mail out packages.

Saylin,

You rock !

Similar question to what I asked on your May NVC thread yesterday.

This is all so nicely laid out on VJ that I feel like I only complicated things by getting an immigration lawyer. So, he's doing electronic processing for us. We're all ready to fly through NVC just waiting for case number and to pay the fees.

My fear was that if I called and opted in for email that I would somehow undo what he's set up for electronic processing. So, I still need to give NVC my emails, he does the DS260 via electronic processing and all the other stuff by electronic processing.

Basically all the emails do is notify me when stuff is happening so I can keep on top of him ?

Please keep in mind, electronic processing (sending packages by email) is a completely different process than online forms (DS-260). For Canada, electronic processing is optional and you need to opt in, whereas online forms are REQUIRED. If you want to do electronic processing, either you or your lawyer has to opt in.

I strongly encourage you to read the wiki I wrote on those very two subjects (includes the optin email format). It's linked below in my signature.

I'll go give it another read.

So I think I understand the difference between the 2. The lawyer is submitting everything. Maybe a better question is can both the lawyer and myself opt in or do you know if it's one or the other ?

You only optin once. If you send repeat emails to NVC it can delay things and/or confuse them. Decide between your lawyer and yourself who will be sending the optin email.

Only if they have your email addresses on file. No email addresses, no correspondence sent by email.
