Email/Letter Received - What does this mean and how long to go?

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So my husband and I received an email this morning stating that all documentation necessary to complete the NVC's processing of our case has been received and that as soon as an interview date has been scheduled we will be notified.

a) does this mean the case is complete at the NVC?

b) what are the next steps from here?

c) how long should we expect this to take from now to "Visa"? We were delayed 60 days because our attorney had said we didn't need the criminal background check until the next step, but she was incorrect. Needless to say, I don't really trust her advice any more.

I'm expecting the interview to be scheduled at the embassy in Auckland, New Zealand.

Many thanks in advance!

We didn't go through NVC, but it certainly sounds just like the Packet 4 e-mail we received asking us to schedule our interview online. They don't tell you exactly that they've finished reviewing your documents, they only say they received them. Congrats though!

Next step will be them scheduling you for an interview, so you should start gathering the documents needed by your embassy for the interview. When they do schedule you you should get a letter/e-mail that will probably have an official list of documents to bring (appointment letter, IV application confirmation, etc.).

Hello I just got a case complete. You already added me to your spreadsheet JPatton. So do you mean that interviews for December are no longer being scheduled and it will be now scheduling for January cause I thought it was based on the embassy availability. My wife and I haven't even got the case complete email yet. I just so happen to be reading a forum about having AOS go from Paid to N/A and then I check mines and it was N/A also. I called NVC right when they open this past Wednesday and the call center representative said my case was complete since the week before. I was thinking maybe the end of December would be when the interview will be scheduled but a early January date would be good also.

December Interview scheduling has been done since 1st week in November.

January schedulig starts this coming week.

Some after getting their dates ask the embassy for an earlier date some embassies comply if they have availability some will not change the date no matter. But yes December is closed.
