time to review docs

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We've submitted all of the required supporting docs a while ago. Since that didn't trigger the NVC website to update, I emailed the NVC to find out whether they had at least received it. They responded saying that they got all the docs necessary to complete our case (although formally the case is still not complete) and that they are trying to schedule an interview at the US Embassy. Priority-date wise we are current now. How long does it normally take for them to schedule an interview at the Embassy?

Good luck everyone.

Same here. My docs were received on May 15th, which I know because of the courrier but not because they let me know of anything. I'm about to email and see what's going on.

I just called the NVC and the operator confirmed that my case has been completed! He told me that I would receive the email with the appointment date soon since there's not waiting for my type or country.

My case has been completed long time ago as well and they had plenty of time to forward it to the Embassy. Yet it's been close to 2 months now and the case is still at the NVC even though our priority date is current and has been current for 2 months now.

What kind of visa are you applying for? Mine is an EB1-A which is supposed to be of the highest priority, maybe that makes a difference?

Most people on this site are for spouse or fiance visas.

Anyways, I am on EB3. Your EB1 would not give you any preferential treatment at NVC or consulate. You would have a lot more documents to prove your eligibility to EB1.

The only difference EB1 gets preference is your priority date is almost always current.

06/09/2015 ---- Put on Supervisor review (1 week or 42 day wait start) - Police certificate missing. I was avoiding it till I go to Canada for interview

06/22/2015 ---- Talked to supervisor, she said since it is available from Canada through agencies even though they charge a lot, it is a must to obtain it. NVC review won't complete without it.

07/07/2015 ---- Police certificate sent in email. (received the email from commissionaire-ottawa)

---- Case Complete (Also police certificate actually received. Also scan date of police certificate)

Note that my case is employment based, and since government already done thorough security checking on me in the past with my employment visa and NEXUS card, I think that clears my security faster than spousal cases.
