DS 230 Package Confusion

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I submitted the IV package with both parts of the DS 230 last week Friday via FedEx and it was delivered in Monday May 21, 2012. Today I received a letter (Checklist) from NVC dated May 21, 2012 stating that they reviewed my documents and that they are missing the immigrant visa application package. I called them to tell them that I had sent it and that it had been delivered on Monday and they said to allow 20 days for them to process it. I am confused because i sent the IV package as soon as the IV fees showed as paid and I attached the barcode cover sheets as instructed. So why are they sending me mail saying they are missing the package if it was not even due to begin with?

My second question is that the letter I received today came with a case number barcode cover sheet and says that I should submit my IV package with the THAT cover sheet. The cover sheet they sent looks different from the one I printed from the internet. should I resent teh IV package with the new cover sheet they sent to me? Calling the NVC has not been productive because they just keep saying to give them 20 days to process the application. I am a little frustrated so any sound advice would be greatly appreciated.

I cant wait for this to be over.

don´t worry, it happens a lot, that they send out the checklist almost at the same time as your papers arrive there. that means that your IV packet arrived, but it´s not in the system when they send out the checklist... give them a couple daays, the same happened to me and shortly after my papers arrived there the NVC already accepted my IV package and we got an interview appointment :)

This is what is called a false checklist and almost always means your AOS package has been received and reviewed. You will have case closed soon. Good luck.
