NVC line is busy

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello VJS members:

Has anyone tried calling National Visa Center? I have tried calling on Monday and today, the line has a busy signal. I thought that was odd because I have called before and that has never happened. Is there another number I could call?

Thanks for answering,

Shiya
