NVC Processing Time

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I called NVC to get an update on my case, and was told that your case was closed on June 12. I asked what is the next step. They said "the next step would be to schedule an interview with the consulate" and I asked the operator when are you planning to do the scheduling.

She mentioned it really depends on the capacity of the embassy and how many cases they take. She also mentioned they usually start the scheduling process in the middle of next month July.

can someone please share their experience, is this really true?

If someone had an interview schedule recently, what was their experience with NVC?

I would really appreciate if some can share or provide information they have.

Thanks for your :help:

The general 'story' from the NVC is that they only schedule interviews during the first two weeks of the month. While this is true for most cases, I have seen a number of cases be assigned interviews outside that time frame.

She was correct though when she told you that it all depends on the consulate - some are quicker than others. With some of the busy consulates/embassies, its not uncommon to wait months and months to have an interview assigned.

Hopefully someone with experience with your specific embassy can give you a better idea as to how long the typical wait is there.

First, congratulations on NVC case complete.

Second, you have to wait for NVC to schedule interview for your beneficiary, for it, you need to wait till first 2 weeks of July.

If there is slot available, you will scheduled for Aug else in Sept.

Most probably, in Aug 2012. You will need the time to be ready for documents mailed from US to India, medical, and then document submission to VFS.

Good luck :thumbs:
