Unnecessary delays?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi VJ,


Just a quick question on whether I'm getting unnecessary delays from NVC or not.(apologies if I posted in the wrong section)


Back in June, NVC sent us a checklist requiring that I bring documents to the interview. One was an error on their part, insisting we had not signed and filled in certain parts on the I-864... we received a call eventually from the reviewing officer on a Saturday and we were informed that this was the case and that all the parts were actually filled out.

The reviewing officer then told us to submit the I-864a for the co-sponsor instead of bringing it to the interview as previously requested. Due to Hurricane Harvey my wife was unable to get it sent off until a few weeks later.


NVC have now told us that our 11 weeks will start all over again from the scan date... I feel as if they are giving us the run around.

We have been at NVC for over 22 weeks now, and they keep requesting documents which we have either already sent or telling us that documents which we have copies of are incomplete when they are clearly complete. The frustration is unbelievable :bonk: 


Any suggestions/advice/comments???


Thanks - Chris

NVC is correct.  Your 11 week clock resets after you submit the needed documents.  On Jan 13th (after 11 weeks at NVC), we received a checklist for incorrect documents.  My attorney called NVC, and "took care" of the issue.  We didn't get a case complete email until 12 weeks later on April 10th.........

I'm sorry, but that is how NVC works...this is not a fun process....Good luck with the rest of your journey...
