NVC Questions/Terminology

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

I am a US citizen and I have applied for a spouse visa for my wife. Our priority date is 02/02/18. Our case was approved 09/14/18. We sent all documents to NVC on 11/02/18. Now the CEAC website states "submitted" for all documents. I had a couple of questions which I don't fully understand:

 

1. What does it mean for case to be complete? Is that when we submit all our documents to NVC or is that when NVC accepts the documents we submitted?

2. What does it mean for priority date to become current? Does this apply to US citizens as the number of spousal visas are unlimited for us. 

3. NVC approved our expeidte request and stated that it was willing to expedite our request once all documents/fees are submitted. Now that they have received all documents/fees, how long will I have to wait at the NVC stage before being transferred to the embassy?

 

Thank you!

1. Case completed it when NVC has received and reviewed all papers and accepted them, CEAC will change to AT NVC

2. does not apply to spouse visa

3. NVC can't approve an expedite only the embassy that will do the interview can do that. If the embassy approved the expedite it would have all been transferred right away to that embassy.

 

Once case is completed you will get a letter from NVC that states that and that you are in line for interview, each country is different on how long it takes to get said interview.

1. Accepted and all fees paid.

2. The priority date does not become current. That was the date when your wife's case was started.

3. Refer to the NVC website or your wife's embassy website.

1.  Case complete is after NVC accepts and "approves" your documents .  At that point (after weeks), you will normally receive an email stating you are in line for an interview.

2.  The priority date immediately becomes current for spouses of US citizens.
