NVC says In Transit to Moscow, now what?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok, case on the way to Moscow from NVC! :)

What should I expect now? Any advice?

So far I lined up the financial letters on my part and will fill out I-134 soon. Will arrange for Visa to Russia soon!

Fiancee has the police records on order, birth certificate, previous marriage, divorce papers and vaccination records will be translated and notarized as well just in case! What else besides filling out the DS-160, medical and scheduling the interview?

Your input greatly appreciated!!!

fill out the ds-160 online, pay any visa fees (per instructions). You can make the medical appointment, but I would wait for the interview till you have police report in hand. Once you have medical package in hand from exam, and police report make the interview appointment. Give yourself at least two week from now for all the papers to catchup to Moscow embassy. Follow instructions from the ustraveldocs site and US Moscow embassy website.

At the same time be proactive. Hve er collect collage transcripts, diplomas, old medical records she think would be useful, and Russian bank accounts sorted. My wife started collecting photos from family and finishing her business in Moscow at this time as well. Basically any business not related to Visa process.

The light is at the end of the tunnel. It will be quicker than you think.

You are a little ahead of me as I have not received my Case number yet from the NVC, but they do have my package as of phone call yesterday. The answers so far are the same advice I would give, 1. fill out DS-160 online (I wonder if I can pay the fee online for my fiance'?), 2. have police report done (that takes up to 2 weeks), 3. schedule medical before the interview, 3. then schedule interview. And of course follow the instructions on the Moscow embassy page for what she will need to bring as evidence of the relationship. Good Luck as I will be joining you in the process very shortly, I hope!

I was able to pay online for my wife. However that was in Feburary this year. Hopefully that has not changed. Rememebr to fully complete the DS160 you will need your USCIS case number and NVC case number. Also dont forget digital versions of passport photos to attach to DS160 online app...

CEAC status now says "READY". It is a bit confusing, as the message says if you have already scheduled an appointment, prepare documents as per the letter and show up. If not, wait until notified of the appointment time.

I have not received any letters or emails other than noticing the status changed from "In Transit" to "READY". Do I go ahead and fill out the DS-160 and schedule medical and an interview time at this point or do I wait for any notifications, mail or email?

We never got any notifications by email or mail post. So do and some don't. I would start filling out the DS-160 (following instructions), pay visa fees, and schedule appoints as needed. If your lady has children you will need a seperate DS-160 for them as well..

Feel free to PM me directly if you have questions. We were where you are now back in Feburary.
