NVC Expedite approved without case no

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My case is with NVC from 22 November and case number has not been assigned yet. So, I put an email request for expedited processing based on military deployment with NVC a couple of days ago. Today they replied

Dear Sir/Madam:

The National Visa Center (NVC) received your inquiry regarding the immigrant visa petition: EACXXXX

The U.S. Embassy/Consulate General has accepted this case for expedited processing. This file will be forwarded to the U.S. Embassy/Consulate General when we finish our intake process.

Do anyone have similar situation? What does intake process means?- just assigning case# or the whole process of filling 3032 to ds260 etc? If I have to do all those forms and wait for them to review there will be no reason to expedited. I was hoping it would go faster? I'm confused to what to do next. When I called NVC, I was told to wait on response from NVC. Any input is highly appreciated.

Yes they will ask for the evidence. I attached a copy of my orders.

Thanks! I was just wondering because they processed your request so quickly. Probably because of your situation.

Hopefully they will get you through quickly. When I requested expedite, I was told if approved, they pack up the case and ship it straight to the embassy. I'll pray that is the case for you.

Hopefully they would do that after they assign a case number and enter the info in the system. Thats what I hope the intake process means.

Hi! I'm so glad I went across your post. So you did not have to send the orders via snail mail? Cause that's what I'm planning on doing. Submit my application next week and then a copy of his order next month. Did you just scan the order and download it with your request?
