Welcome to the New and Improved Case Complete to Interview Monthly thread.

The list that has been updated has now been moved to a spreadsheet like the one used in the NVC filers thread, I am still updating. But right right all you waiting for interviews are listed.

You can view my spreadsheet Case Complete to Interview Spreadsheet

To update your interview date go here. Case Complete to Interview Form

For New people to the thread please go Case Complete to Interview Form and input your information in the form and it will be added to the form.

Everyone should be clicking on the Portal tab to visit the information for their country. If nothing is there or information needs updating. Update or add.

Its up to all of us to keep this information current, relevant and helpful to others.

Special Note: Different consulates or embassies have strict guidelines as to what type of bags/purses/cellphones etc can be carried in. And whether they provide any lockers (or not) for temp storage. As many travel from far away (by air/train/cars, one needs to specially know what they will not be able to take inside the consulate and where to store their personal belongings.

Here are some FAQ and other tidbits that may be useful to you. Be sure to visit your countries portal and click on the Consular Information and also Consular reviews.

FAQ


I just called and got Case Complete how long does it take to get the email as confirmation?
Well it has been taking 5 to 7 days to get case complete email from the date they Case Complete.

How long after Case Complete will I get an interview?
Okay this is the BIG mystery of NVC. How it usually goes is end of the month and first week of month they start scheduling for interviews for the that upcoming month. Since January they have been pretty consistent starting about the last 2 days of the month and finishing that following first week of next month

Do I have to call for my interview date?
NVC has improved greatly since March. The interview letter now comes day of schedule. So call if you want its up to you.

I know someone who got interview in the middle of the month. How is that possible?
Usually when you see someone pop up with an interview outside the bunch its usually the result of a cancellation or the embassy opening up a slot. Just because scheduling stops doesn't mean they filled up all slots. They may have more slots than appointments which is good. So someone gets case complete and immediately they get an interview. It happens.

Remember every embassy has its own slots and schedule. Some like El Salvador are very busy with a long waiting list. Some like Yemen, well it may be a few months to get in. Iceland you get interview immediately scheduled after case Complete.

I need to change our interview date what do I do?
Once you receive your interview date track your casefile. Call NVC ask when your casefile left than you can follow the DHL instructions to embassy. The contact your embassy (email is best) and ask to be rescheduled later, earlier just ask.

What do I need to bring to interview?
When you receive your P4 Letter (Interview letter) it will have your personalized checklist of things to bring or not. It has been suggested because things have been lost between NVC and embassy to bring everything (Originals) to the interview so if they don't have at embassy you aren't delayed.It's up to you. It doesn't happen much but it does happen.


Just to remind everyone to revisit the NVC Process Wiki, NVC Process Wiki

Important things fir Interview prep:
-How to Track Your Case Using DHL (use this to figure out what date you need)
-How to Track Your Case Using DHL (use this to figure out how to use the DHL site and input everything)

-General Medical Information
-Country-Specific Medical Information (choose three letter embassy/consulate code from drop-down list)
-Age-Specific Vaccination Requirements (choose age first at top of page)

-Country-Specific Interview Information (choose three letter embassy/consulate code from drop-down list)
-Sample List of Interview Questions
-Thread of Proof of Relationship Evidence Ideas
-Ideas on How to Organize Your Interview Documents

*******************************

Thanks to Fabian&Ross for spelling this all out. Once you get the interview letter reference this.

You must bring the following items to the visa interview:
? Any original documents the NVC requested that you did not submit (refer to the document list below)
? If the physician gives you your medical exam results, bring them to your interview in the envelope sealed
by the medical office.
? Two passport photographs measuring 2 inches by 2 inches (5 cm by 5 cm) with a white background
? A valid unexpired passport
? Photocopies of all civil documents
? A new police certificate from your current country of residence, if you obtained the police certificate
more than one year ago
.
? Any additional documents listed in the U.S. Embassy or Consulate specific interview guidelines

The following table lists the documents requested by the NVC and whether or not you submitted them to the
NVC. Please note that even though you may have provided the NVC with a copy of a document, you are
still required to bring the original document to the visa interview.
Refer to the Document Status Code Definitions on Page 3 to determine the meaning of the document status
codes.

Document Name Document Status
CORRESPONDENCE INSTRUCTIONS C
1 - IMMIGRANT VISA APPLICATION PART 1 R
1 - IMMIGRANT VISA APPLICATION PART 2 R
2 - PASSPORT Y
3 - BIRTH CERTIFICATE O
4 - ADOPTION F
5 - MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE O
6 - MARRIAGE TERMINATION F
7 - COURT RECORDS F
F - FINANCIAL EVIDENCE Y
9 - MILITARY RECORDS F
10 - COLOMBIA POLICE CERTIFICATE O
FEE PAYMENT $
PHOTOGRAPH Y
F - PETITIONER MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE F
F - PETITIONER BIRTH CERTIFICATE F
11 - PETITIONER MARRIAGE TERMINATION F

The interview letter is divided into separate sections. The one I highlighted in all red tells you what you must bring to the interview (in general). Another section lists all the docs you may have already submitted to NVC along with one-letter codes next to each document (also highlighted in red). There is a third section that gives you the definition of each of these one-letter codes. For example, code "O" next to "3 - BIRTH CERTIFICATE" means you submitted that doc to NVC and NVC already sent it to the embassy.

Please read the letter slowly and carefully again. If you follow the letter you should be fine.

If there's anything of value you would think will help the betterment of all and you feel it should be added please let me know. I want this thread and the spreadsheets to help everyone in this Journey. :goofy:

Hey all,

Got my interview next week. Just getting all my docs together, don't want to miss anything!!

I sent mostly originals of all my civil docs to the nvc...so do I just take photocopies to the interview (since they will have my originals in hand!)

Any other advice of what extra docs to take would beg realty appreciated! Been reading lots of posts on here and already got most of it figured...just want to make sure I have too much rather than not enough.

One thing I wanted to take was a copy of he completed ds260...but I don't think I can access and print it anymore since it is already completed...hope that won't be a problem!

Thanks
