Question about sending documents to nvc

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

So because of a recent situation, I applied for an expedite via my senator. The senator contacted the embassy and the embassy agreed to the expidite. I was planning on sending documents to the nvc this week before I heard the expidite was approved (my affidavit of support and my wives civil documents). I looked today at the state department website and the current processing location changed from NVC to the embassy location. My question is, since the expedite do I still send those documents to the nvc or do we just take them to the interview? All the fees have been paid and my wife filled out the ds-260.

I'm just confused - if the current processing location is the embassy location instead of the NVC what do we do with the affidavit of support and civic documents. Does it turn into basically a DCF situation? I wrote my senator asking but I figured I'd ask here too.

Thanks!

We just approved with our expedite request too. We called NVC and they said to keep everything on hold until we hear from the embassy that they received our case. Basically, the embassy will contact those emails provided in the Choice of Agent form you filled up. But looking through your timeline, you said that you already submitted the packets last Wednesday. :huh:

Just a question though, what does your visa application status states when you check the ceac website?

It says "in transit

Your case is in transit to the Consular Section. Your interview date was provided to you by the National Visa Center."

So I guess it's too late to send documents to nvc? Also they didn't provide us with an interview date? Is that also down to the embassy now?

But your timeline is different. It's saying that you already submitted the packets last October 5.

I believe that format is standard. Everytime somebody gets a CC the next thing they get is the interview date then NVC forwards their cases. As with ours we skipped that part but still get the same paragraph after the "In Transit".

Yes, the Embassy will schedule your interview appointment.

Update on my side:

My senator got back to me and confirmed that I shouldn't send anything to the NVC. I got a email from the embassy yesterday saying we can schedule an interview now.
