I just got off the phone with a very nice representative from NVC. He told me that the site will be up and running on June 13. I called to ask if the immigration

Fees I sent for my parents had been cleared. Glad to hear that it has been cleared. I paid by mail May 21. Anyway, I am still unable to open the DS260 application online. He said some are able to, some not. But he told me to just keep on logging everyday anyway. I will do that, I always do! So, on June 13, I will see if I am able to open DS260. If I am still having difficulty, June 15, I can call a number and these people will help me go about my DS260.

Just to give you all an update about the system if you haven't called lately. June 13 is the day to remember for all of us who are still unable to access stuff. Hope this news brightens up your day. ;)

No wonder I have been tracking my passport/visa from them and didnt get any update but "Ready." The scariest part is there is a note there that i am ready for interview apppointments..but... i am done with it on June 4. They took my passport, no additional documents requested and told me to go home.

Hope CEAC will be really back on June 13.

Thank you for the update.

Best of Luck :)

I knew that NVC and the CEAC have been in a mess since early this year. There were a lot of folks who had been waiting for 3+ months and still couldn't pay fees & fill out DS 260 forms AND THEIR PRIORITY DATES ARE GETTING CLOSE!! I also hope that everything on their site can be up and running a few days later... Otherwise they will continue to waste our time and energy...
