Hi! From my experience, I had to fill out DS-261 first and then waited for the IV invoice to be available, but it's better to call the NVC to follow up on it because they need to review ds-261 first before sending the IV invoice. :)

I'm not sure about the time frame, but I think mine took two weeks.. and when I called NVC up they sent me the invoice the next day. I don't know if it's a coincidence or you just have to call so they can check/review the ds-261 faster.

The IV fee has to be invoiced before it can be paid. It is invoiced once the DS-261 is reviewed. If you call NVC and tell them you've paid the AOS fee and submitted the DS-261 they should review it over the phone for you, and the IV fee will be invoiced within a few days.
