NVC Documents sent

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I sent my AOS and supporting documents to the NVC earlier this month, and delivered on 12-12. I have not received any communication from the NVC since then, and calling has resulted with no information.

Will I get any form of information stating that they received my documents? Or is the next communication either an RFE or the Interview date?

Some people get a confirmation of receipt, some people don't. I never did. However, you should be able to call them and ask what date they scanned in all your documents. Then expect to hear something 6-8 weeks from that scan date :)
