Hi everyone,


        After Emailed all request IV & AOS documents (using GUZ #) on 12/28/2016 I got the email response from nvc today below:



Dear Sir/Madam:


The National Visa Center (NVC) received your inquiry regarding the immigrant visa petition: GZO# filed by (my name) on behalf of (my farther's name).


This correspondence is also to notify you that the principal applicant's case number was changed. The new case number starts with GZO (instead of GUZ) and is followed by a new set of ten numbers. This change was made to identify the case for both the NVC and the U.S. Consulate General in Guangzhou, China as participating in the Optional Electronic Processing Program.


Please refer to the case number given below in all future correspondence with the NVC and the U.S. Consulate General in Guangzhou.


As this case is processing electronically, all forms and documents must be sent via email as scanned attachments to NVCElectronic@state.gov.  Sending physical documents to the NVC will delay the processing of your case.


Case Number:                  GZO#

Petitioner's Name:            Name

Principal Applicant's Name:   Name

Preference Category:          IR5

Your Priority Date:           27May2016

Foreign State Chargeability:  CHINA

                              U.S. CONSULATE GENERAL

                              43 HUA JIU RD., ZHUJIANG NEW TOWN

                              TIANHE DISTRICT

                              GUANGZHOU, CHINA


Now I don't know should I send them all the documents again with new case number ? 


Or If this means they already got all the documents and just waiting for the next step updated and I don't need to send all the documents again?


Anyone has experience about this ?


Thank you for any helps.
