After almost a year of being approved, nothing but disappointment from NVC.

Hello guys, it is going to be a year of my petitions being approved by uscis, and I am still waiting for NVC to complete my cases ?. Is there anybody on this forum that was also approved about a year ago, and still stuck at NVC stage? I would love to hear from you. Sometimes I feel like I am the only one with this predicament. I feel like one of those kids in the playground that no one picks to be in their team ?????. IT IS REALLY FRUSTRATING!

A year at NVC??? Did you contact your Congressman? That's a long time to not have any answers...


The total amount of days from the date I mailed in our K1 Visa application to the day my fiancé stepped foot into the USA:

1 year, 3 months and 8 days.

The amount of days from the date we mailed in our AOS to the date everything was approved (after 3 RFEs):

7 months & 5 days

Which makes our journey a total of:

2 years, 3 months, and 8 days

It took me 9 months from USCIS approval (NOA2) to NVC case complete. Not quite a year, but it was a much longer process than I originally anticipated. We got stuck in the NVC backlog and received a checklist. I'm guessing you've had a few checklists? I'm really sorry- I know how awful it is to feel like you have no control. I hope you get a CC soon!

Have you tried calling the NCV and asking what is holding up the process. Maybe a missed or incorrect filed document. One year seems to be longer then normal. Praying you get answers soon. Good luck.

I have called NVC more than I have called my own husband overseas. They just don't care. I have answered many checklists for mistakes made on aos forms. Out of those mistakes, NVC is at fault in two of them because twice they lost documents. I just have to wait, wait, and wait until somebody at NVC feels like dealing with my cases.

You must call and bring this to the attention of a supervisor over at NVC. Also, have you received your case number beginning with SDO? This will mean your case has already entered the consulate in Santo Dominigo, Dominican Rep, even though the NVC has your documents.

If NVC lost your documents twice, get your congressmen and senator involved. Just go to their websites and fill out an inquiry form, providing all the information concerning your case and allowing them to make an investigation on your behalf. Also try to talk to a supervisor from NVC on the phone and explain the situation to him/her. It really can speed up the process in this case. Good luck!

No. The consulate most likely won't know about her case until they actually (physically) receive the case file from NVC (unless an expedite was approved). Until then, the case # only serves for identifying and processing the file at NVC.

We are now at 19 months and finally have our approval, visa, and plane ticket in hand for next week. Our U.S. Senator's office made all the difference to get this moving again. Don't give up.

Thank you, I am really starting to be believe that it is personal. There is no way that my documents are the only ones that need to be corrected for every PERIOD that I miss to put down on any form.

I would advise u to get an attorney to complete your case for you.best of luck and sorry to hear that.

An attorney is not going to do anything. They have as much communication as anybody else with NVC. Thank you for reading my post. I feel so upset today, and completely overwhelmed with this whole proccess.

A year at NVC??? Did you contact your Congressman? That's a long time to not have any answers...

I contacted his office a couple of times but at the times that I did, there was a whole mess going on with police brutally in New York that politicians were really caring little for anything else.
