Waiting time after sending in IV and AOS packages

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

So things are coming along slowly but surely! My husband and I just sent in our AOS and IV packages via email last week and I did my DS-260 form online. Is there anything I'm missing? I have been following this link :

http://www.visajourney.com/wiki/index.php/NVC_for_Montreal_Beneficiaries_%E2%80%93_Electronic_Processing_and_New_Online_Forms

quite closely just to make sure I have everything. Somehow email just seems so "unofficial" and I get worried sometimes that our packages got lost in the land of internet.

How long should I wait and expect some correspondence from NVC that they received the packages? Did it take those of you who have already been through this 2 months/ 60 days before receiving contact from them? Should I be calling them everyday at this point to see how the process is going?

THANKS! I am probably over-thinking this whole situation. =)

We used Email Processing for our packages last month.

It took about 7days for a formal acknowledgement of the packages to come by email and about 22 days to complete processing including a small snafu with our AOS tax transcripts needing to be resubmitted ( make sure any files you send have NO encryption)

I did not call after the invoices were paid and packages sent so I cant speak to whether there is anything NVC customer service can do to acknowledge whether they have the file.

Hi,

I actually submitted our DS-260 on April 25 and emailed our AOS and IV packages on April 27, having paid both fees before. I haven't heard back from the NVC so I called them today and the woman on the phone said it can take a couple more days for an official email to get to me.

I also heard from two other Canadians that they got email confirmation ~one week later and took one of them about 25 days for case closed.

We ended up sending one email for the IV package and six (6!) emails for the AOS package, all to keep each email under 5 MBs - and this after I used PDF compression software.

Hope this helps!

I learned this about Email filing: The Tax transcripts (PDF) as they came from the IRS website we "encrypted" even though anyone with a browser could read them. They ask me to resubmit with the files decrypted ( which I had to buy special software for) It might be better to print out and rescan.
