NVC Filers - August 2015

883 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Welcome to another monthly thread for those going through NVC. Good luck to all! Please read everything below and refer to it throughout your NVC journey, whether this is your first month at NVC or your third :idea:

NVC will be closed on the following day(s) due to federal holidays: NO HOLIDAYS IN AUGUST!! They are open every business day (Monday-Friday) this month.


Before posting questions, please read the wiki I wrote on the NVC process here. Once you're done, read it one or two more times to really understand it ;) Don't forget to also read the official form instructions as well as USCIS and NVC's websites!
If you want to see a visual of the NVC process, please view my flowchart here.
I will be much less active in answering posts in these monthly threads, so don't bother asking me questions directly and please don't send me PMs with questions. If you send me a PM with a question that can be posted here, I will NOT reply. Just post them here for everyone to see and someone will come along to answer. Remember to be patient (re: just post once and wait) ;)

And if for whatever reason, you can't find the answer, try searching both on this website and on Google. It's amazing what you can find if you search ;)

If you're wondering about time frames, look at the fellow members right here in this thread! Study their signatures/timelines and make notes. VJ also has this awesome page. Use it! I sure did during my process :)

And once you've got a case complete, please join Dwheels's case complete/interview thread (currently September), here.

Also, please read Kanuk's post full of advice and observations, found here.

Please note: there are updated I-864 forms that you should start using immediately. More info (with direct links to forms) here.

NVC still schedules the interview at the Embassy and not the Embassy or the individual right?

I take it the NVC will send me a letter that I will need to include in the documents sent to them?

In the wiki guide there is mentiion of a bar code document, which one is that?
