NVC Expedited I-130 CR-1, fees show up online?

9 posts in this topic

Our expedite request for health reasons has been granted. I talked to the agent this morning and he has given me case number and IIN. Than he said that this case is now being sent to embassy. I asked if I should pay fees or fill any forms. All he was able to say was I can file Choice of agent and he is not sure about the rest.

I checked on https://ceac.state.gov/ and it was showing choice of agent along with IV and AOS fees. I filed choice of agent but I am not sure if I should proceed with paying the fees as from my search it looks like all the fees will be paid at embassy once expedite is granted?

Any ideas?

Hello,

How long did it take to get a response with approval for the Expedite request?

I sent a request and last Thursday I got an email saying that my expedite request is under review. Mine is for the Dominican Republic.

Thanks in advance for your response.

DB

Hi There,

I don't know the stage in your process when your expedite was approved but I also expedited when my case was at the NVC. I had already made all the payments and submitted all the documents but received several errors and was in the middle of correction when the expedite was approved. I was told once it's approved, everything is forwarded to the Embassy. NVC is unable to do anything at that point. Once I received an email from the embassy, they requested I complete the online process which was already completed at the NVC stage....it was horrible, I couldn't find anyone to explain how I can complete somthing that was already completed and can't be re-done. So, I'm thinking you will be receiving the email from the embassy with a request to complete the payments and will need to bring and maybe submit all the documents directly to the embassy. I don't know where is your embassy but that was my experience. Good Luck.

Embassy is in Turkey, it took 8 days and I discovered it was approved this morning when I called to get case number. I didn't receive anything in the mail or e-mail yet regarding approval.

@lonely I will stay away from doing anything until I receive instructions then, perhaps I shouldn't even have completed the choice of agent. Thank you for the warning, it was tempting to pay online and be done with it.

Embassy is not strict about expedite requests, USCIS is really strict about it for a good reason. I am sure if you explain your situation and send an e-mail to nvcexpedite@state.gov depending on their work load they will consider your request. But this is only after you get your case number. I have also sent an e-mail to nvcresearch@state.gov after confirming that USCIS has mailed the documents when nvcexpedite replied back saying they cannot do anything without case number. I specifically mentioned in that e-mail that I am trying to expedite hence the inquiry.

Good luck.
