Preparing for the NVC Stage - What do I need to do/Tips?

18 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Greetings All, 

 

I just got approved today (PD 3/30/2018 - Potomac Center). I understand that it takes about 2-6 weeks to hear from NVC but I want to fill out everything so I can send it off as soon as I get the go ahead from the NVC. What do I need to complete? Any other tips?

It will take few weeks to send from USCIS than week to receive by Nvc after that upto 8 weeks to get your case number. So mean time you can apply for police certificate  but still you need to check since in some countries police certificate expired very quickly than others. Make sure you have valid passport. You need to select your sponsor. Filling form should not take more than few days so I think it's to early. You need to speak to your sponsor and make sure he/ she got all documents ready once you got your case number. Also check DS 260 form and relevant information which you might need later on.

look for the sample DS-260 form online from the DOS, so you know what info you will need. Other than that, start collecting all of your documents and have them on hand.

Great thanks!

Ok good to know. Who needs to get a police report? The Beneficiary (and not Petitioner), right?

Don’t forget the fees. First fee is the Affidavit of Support for $120 and then the IV fee for $325. You can also start the Affidavit of Support online and save it until you’re ready to send. 

 

If your beneficiary is from Santo Domingo make sure when you send the birth certificate it says “Inextensa” my in-laws sent us “Extracto” and a checklist was received because of that. Apparently the one that’s says Extracto is use only for local and they didn’t know. 

 

Good Luck

yes my wife called the nvc 3 times so far asking some things about the form and they told her they can not give her legal advice , that everything is in the website. i wanted to know (in my case we have a co-sponsor) so i think there is another form i have to fill out. And you are accurate  about the nvc processing times, although when my wife called they told her once they recieve all the documents it just takes them 3 weeks, i am not so sure about it. And the gap of time for the interview depends on the embassy in your country.

Your case is getting transferred to the National Visa Center for consular processing. This is normal.

It means that your petition has been approved and you are moving on to the next phase of the immigration process.
