General time frame and procudure of NVC mailing CC's to Embassy

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I received my P4 letter over two weeks ago (approx.) for a CR1 interview at the London embassy. I have heard of many people getting P4's and within days they have mentioned their CEAC status has changed to 'in transit'. How long does it usually take for the NVC to send documents over? I am guessing that maybe they send a whole load of document sets together to the same embassy instead of one at a time.

I am just curious because I have recently had my medical done and am now only waiting on my documents to get to the embassy from the NVC before I can contact them requesting them to consider me if they have any cancellations or sudden interview openings.

You are correct in assuming that the NVC sends a stack of cases together to each embassy. Typically, NVC sends out the case a day after the interview is scheduled, but it can take up to about a week from what others have reported.

Since its been two weeks for you already, you should try calling.
