NVC Case Closed!

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My case finally closed at the NVC today!! :dance:

What happens next? I understand that the NVC only schedules the next months interviews during the first two weeks of the current month. So I guess since the case closed in the beginning of the third week, my case will sit at the NVC and then be scheduled during the first two weeks of next month for July? When I spoke with a rep at the NVC, she said that there were no more openings in June for the Consulate in Rio.

About how long does it take to get the interview scheduled after closing the case? What happens next?

When I spoke with a rep at the NVC, she said that there were no more openings in June for the Consulate in Rio.

I was given the "no openings" line by an operator one night, I called again the very next day and low and behold, and interview had been scheduled for the following month. I would say call again tomorrow or in a few days and see what happens.

Thanks, I already called and they were like "Your case just completed YESTERDAY, you can call back in the third week of June to see IF it is scheduled for July". I guess it just depends on the mood of the rep you talk to at the moment.

According to this friend here, that is what happens about the docments, at least in Brazil was this way:

"The document requirement is something that I was very confused about at first, even though I had pretty much figured it out before we arrived. If you filed your petition in the US and submitted all of your original documents to NVC, you DO NOT have to produce those documents again at the consulate and you will not receive a packet 4 from the consulate. The packet 4 is an email from NVC confirming the completeness of the documents that you submitted to them and advising you of your interview date. If this is the case, the only thing you will need at the interview is the passport of the person immigrating and the sealed medical exam envelope. If you did not submit ALL of your original documents to NVC, you have to take the ones that you did not submit, including the 2 passport photos. Since we did submit everything already, we only needed my wife's passport and the sealed medical envelope. I hope that might help someone who was as confused about this as I was."
