Arranging courier before my CR1/IR1 interview?!

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So just heard for the first time that I'm supposed to sign up on this website - https://usvisa-info.com/ - before my interview has taken place.

Admittedly I am not on this website everyday, but have read my instructions from NVC carefully and just looked through the wiki and can't see it anywhere...

Can anyone shed any light please? I was under the impression you just filled in a courier slip at the embassy after your visa gets approved....

Panicking a bit now as thought I was set...

(PS - I just signed up on the website and it only gives options to assign where you will collect your visa from. I need mine delivering.)

At the end of that process it gives you the additional option to assign a delivery address. Slow down, it'll be fine. You've got a few days to go and this doesn't take long to set up :)


ROC from CR-1 visa (Green Card expiration date was Nov 24th 2016)

 

Link to the evidence I submitted. Be sure to send evidence spanning your entire marriage (especially for K-1) or as far back as you can. Just one or two bank statements will not cut it. I primarily focused on the two years of living here since I came in on a CR-1. If you don't have the fundamentals (i.e. joint accounts/policies), you can explain why in the covering letter. E.g. "While we do not have joint utilities, we both contribute to them from our joint bank account".

 

September 26th 2016: I-751 package sent to CSC

March 15th 2018: ROC approved. 535 days (1 year, 5 months and 17 days)

March 29th 2018: Card being produced

April 4th 2018: Card mailed out

April 6th 2018: Card in hand. Has incorrect "resident since" date. Submitted service request on I-751 case (typographical error on permanent resident card) and an I-90 online.

April 2018 - August 7th 2018: Tons of service requests, emails and now senator involvement to get my corrected green card back because what the heck, USCIS. Also some time in May I sent a letter to Potomac telling them I want to withdraw my I-90 since CSC were handling it.

August 8th 2018: Card in production thanks to the direct involvement of Senator Sherrod Brown's team

August 13th 2018: Card mailed

August 15th 2018: Card in hand with correct date. :joy:

October 31st 2018: Potomac sends out a notice stating they have closed out my I-90 per my request. Yay for no duplicate card drama.

We decided to pay the $30.00 for the visa to be delivered to my husbands UK address.

We first had to select the office that was closest to my husbands address, then in the end we selected the option to assign the delivery address, it then gives you the option to print off the confirmation sheet to take to the interview.
