Expediting an Existing case at NVC Question

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there.

Does anyone know if a case that is in the Review Process with the NVC can be expedited in anyway through the review process until the Interview.

In other words, would it be possible to have the review processed quickly ?

If the review process cannot be expedited and has to take it's natural course then would it be possible in anyway to get the Interview date earlier than the standard One Month window given normally after the case is complete.

If so then what are the correct procedures/Protocols ?

Thank you much

Sincerely

Riaaz

Have you already submitted documents and paid fees to the NVC? If so, then the odds of being granted an expedite may not be in your favor. However, the odds are not 0% and in no way preclude making a request.

If you don't expedite at the NVC, you can make a request to the Embassy for an earlier interview date. You will need to sate reasons why under established expedite criteria.

Another option is this, instead of requesting an expedite, you can request to be slotted into an earlier date in the event of a cancellation.
