CEAC VISA STATUS CHECK

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have read that 3 N/As in our VISA LOGIN page https://ceac.state.gov/IV/Login.aspx

means that more than likely that we finally have a CC or Case Complete.

My question is if it is the same or more accurate to use:

https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx?eQs=o/iS8zDpeAKjMWCuebHqOw==

I have been querying random cases and tells me if the case still being processed by NVC, or READY waiting for Scheduling Interview, or if the VISA has been issued, so I assume that READY and waiting for an interview slot is the same as Case completed.

Can some one verify this for us?

I have a case complete and the interview scheduled, however, the status check you are looking at still lists "At NVC". Don't think it's as reliable for when the case is going through the NVC process, it becomes more useful once you're in the interview phase.

I appreciate your feedback, so much for that tool as window to look inside.

I think is better to just forget about the case and let time pass by.

Thanks

I actually think the CEAC webpage or the NVC status check is relevant for my two cases. They were completed within the amount of time given and the status were already updated during that time.

Thanks for your feedback, I wish we receive lots of feed backs to put this tool to the test.
