Darnel,

Need some help, I called this morning the NVC and got case # GUZxxxxxxxx and my IIN # xxxxxxxx. My case is K1 visa. I am reading here that I should confirmed with the operator(NVC) that my AOS (Affidavit of Support) invoice would be emailed to me. I will send the actual OPTIN email to have the case converted from paper to electronic after I receive this invoice in my inbox. Also ,do I need to fill it out form DS-3032? or this is for IR-1/CR-1 visa? I am confuse between K1 visa and IR-1/CR-1? process, I read here for K1 visa for China there is not EP correct? also read if it is not EP would take few months to get the P3,IV pocket and of course the k1 visa and so on? I think I am reading to much info here and now I confuse, any help would be appreciated, how the process work for china K1 Visa. Thank you.

Disregard anything you read about the spousal visa (IR-1/CR-1) process since you are going through the K1 process. The procedures for the visa types are very different and are not interchangeable.

Will I receive any letter from NVC for AOS fee or documents?

Now that the NVC has given you a GUZ number, they are now out of the picture. For the K1 process, the NVC is not much more than a mail stop for the file, they assign a case number to the file and send it off to the appropriate location abroad.
