This may have been asked several times, i just couldnt find the answers.

- Do i have to call NVC and get them to review my DS261? I havent done that and its been a month since i filled out the DS261.

- My husband mailed out IV and AOS package together and it was received by NVC (according to ups). Does NVC email or mail us that they have received our documents or not? Because im kind of worried not to have any confirmation. If they do, how long does it take?

- Is the IV fee invoice emailed? IV fee still shows 0$ on ceac portal. And DS260 is no where to be seen. Dont know how that works.. please share your experience so i can have a better understanding of this procedure

Thank you

Just received an email from NVC that they have received my documents. Wow feeling relieved to know that :) Just when i had started to feel a bit worried. They said that they will take around 30 days to review my documents. Hopefully no checklist or RFE (fingers crossed)
