A letter from the NVC. When will the interview.

Have received such letter.


Dear Sir/Madam,
The National Visa Center (NVC) received all the requested documentation for this immigrant visa case. The
applicant is now in the queue awaiting an interview appointment overseas, where a consular officer will adjudicate
the applicant’s visa application.
NVC schedules appointments one month in advance. The U.S. Embassy tells us what dates they are holding
interviews, and NVC fills these appointments as they become documentarily qualified. Most appointments are set
within three months of NVC’s receipt of all requested documentation. However, before applicants in a numerically
limited (preference) visa category can receive an appointment, their priority date must also be current. This can
delay receipt of an appointment. You can track your priority date using the Visa Bulletin on travel.state.gov.
When an appointment is available, we will notify the applicant, petitioner and attorney (if applicable). The
applicant can prepare now by reading about the embassy’s interview requirements online at nvc.state.gov/interview.
Thank you for your patience.
The embassy may require additional documents at the interview. For example, if the following three items are all
true, the applicant must bring a new police certificate to the visa interview:
He or she is more than 16 years old;
The police certificate submitted to NVC was obtained more than one year

ago; and

He or she still lives in the country that issued the certificate.

The applicant should not make any travel arrangements, sell property, or give up employment until the embassy has
issued a visa.

When is the interview date usually appointed after such a letter? Really passes three months as it is written there?
Thank you so much.
