USCIS took almost 2 months to send IV case to NVC?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible that it could take this long for USCIS to send visa case to NVC? I called USCIS and the NVC after 6 weeks to see what was taking so long, NVC told me to email them a copy of the approval letter from USCIS as well as our information to NVCresearch@state.gov so they could check to see if it was in their mailroom somewhere. Meanwhile I called USCIS twice just around the 6 week mark to find out if it had gone out, I was told twice that it was on it's way. August 30th I finally got the update that they had sent my case over to the NVC? Does this seem strange? I was told twice it was on it's way.

It is unusual for it to take that long. 2 weeks is about how long it can take for the approved petition to go from USCIS to NVC.

From USCIS to NVC is two weeks....And once NVC receives the approved petition, it takes another two weeks. For example, my petition was approved June 19th....NVC confirmed that my petition entered the building on 3rd of July but my NVC Case number was generated on July 19th.
