In Transit to the Consular Section - Help!

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am from British Columbia, Canada and my fiance is from Washington (state), USA.

I phoned the NVC last week and they provided me with a Case #, Invoice ID # and Beneficiary #. I also recently checked our case status online today and it said, "Your case is in transit to the Consular Section. Your interview date was provided to you by the National Visa Center."

  • Does that mean that it is on its way to the Vancouver Embassy?
  • What should I do now? What's the next step?
  • When do I start form DS-160?
  • Do I have to wait until I get something in the mail from them to start gathering documents?
  • When should I start gathering documents?

Right now I am at lost on what to do. I've done my research on the Internet and I'm not entirely positive on what step I should take now!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!! :) :) :) :)

Hi Rylee,

If you check the Canada specific forum, there is lots of information about what to do next. Browse a couple of the threads - one is specifically a guide for the Vancouver consulate.

The NVC won't schedule for you.

You can fill out the DS-160 now.

Here are the packet 3 instructions for Vancouver > http://photos.state.gov/libraries/canada/303578/Vancouver/k_pkt3.pdf
