Hi everyone, I'm confused on the NVC's steps.

There are 6 steps that they provided tor follow before the interview.

Step 1: choose an agent

step 2: pay fees

Step 3: submit visa application form (DS-260)

step 4: collect financial documents

step 5: collect supporting documents

step 6: submit documents to the NVC

....

After I completed step (paying the fee which was $120 for the AOS, I printed the receipt. On the receipt, it said to collect financial documents. It didn't mention the DS-260 (step 3).

I was wondering isn't the DS-260 supposed to appear on this link

https://ceac.state.gov/IV/Login.aspx

when I check mine it doesn't show the ds-260 form on it. Do they mail the form or something? From what I know it's supposed to be an online form.

I was going to call the NVC but I thought to ask on this website before calling and waiting for hours for a reply.

Make sure you send your AOS and IV package in together so you cut down on time.

You will have to wait until the DS-261 has been "Reviewed" before the NVC will unlock the IV invoice and DS-260. To speed the process up start calling the NVC about a week after you submitted the DS-261 and nicely ask if it is available to review. In the meantime you can send both AOS & IV packages (supporting documents) to the NVC with the bar code from the AOS receipt meaning you can send both before the IV is paid.

i already paid the aos fee but it doesnt show me the IV fee. when i press the pay now it shows $0.00. i only see the AOS fee which is $120 and it says paid.

im getting the AOS documents and the IV documents ready but what i am confused at is should i send both the AOS documents and the IV documents before the IV fee is shown?

because this is what i am understanding from the instructions in the receipt.

When the AOS fee payment status is PAID:

  1. The petitioner must complete and submit an Affidavit of Support (Form I-864). To submit your application, go to http://nvc.state.gov and click on Step 4: Collect financial documents.
  2. Read the introductory paragraph. Then click on > Complete an Affidavit of Support form. From the chart, select the form that fits your situation. You will need to click the GO button to access the form and instructions.
  3. To complete your Immigrant Visa Application, you must submit copies of all supporting documents. Go to http://nvc.state.gov and click on Step 6: Submit documents to the NVC. You will find instructions if you are required to email your documents, as well as the processing and mailing information.
  4. If you are required to submit physical copies of your documents, you must include a barcoded cover sheet to identify your documents.
  • If you received an Instruction Packet from the NVC, it contains a cover sheet. You can send that cover sheet or a copy of the cover sheet.
  • If you need a new cover sheet, print one by clicking the Print Document Cover Sheet button on the Receipt page.
  • If you cannot print a cover sheet, click the Email Document Cover Sheet button. Then send an electronic copy to an email address where you can print it.

How long am i supposed to wait until the IV fee is announced?

at the end of the receipt is says: You will find steps concerning IV fee payments on the IV fee payment receipt.

this is so confusing.,...

Send the IV documents at the same time you send the AOS documents regardless of whether the IV fee is showing or not.

IV fee 'viewability' is only tied to the DS-261 getting added to the casefile, usually 2 to 5 days after. It's not tied to AOS fee payment or receipt of I-864, at all.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

Yes the instructions on the website is confusing. These are the steps to do.first fill in ds-261 choice of agent and pay Aos fee. Next send in the aos and iv packets using the AOS barcode document cover sheet or the bar code cover sheet included in the welcome letter. When the nvc receives your documents they will start to review them.

While you are waiting on that you can call them to have them review your ds-261 choice of agent form if they had not done it yet. Once the Ds-261 is review you will be able to pay the Iv fe. After you pay the iv fee you can fill out the Ds-260 visa application then you will just need to wait for your case complete
