Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Just looking for some clarity. My case is at NVC and all documents have been accepted and marked as "accepted" on the ceac website. I've received notification that NVC is waiting to schedule the interview. So, my question is at what point will NVC update my case status to complete? Is it considered complete once an interview date is scheduled and then my case is forwarded to the embassy? Basically, a confirmed interview date equals a completed case at NVC stage?? Thanks in advance!

Case complete will happen before your interview is scheduled. Once all the documents have been reviewed and found to be in order, your case will be complete at the NVC and will then move to the next stage of waiting for interview to be scheduled. Only completed cases are put into the interview queue. It can take a few weeks after case complete to be informed of your interview date.

Tevaugh1998  - You can go to the website ceac.state.gov/IV . You'll need both  your case and invoice number. Your case status should be on the site. Also, NVC will send you an email with any updates if they have your email address.

 

My case isn't updated as complete online, however, we received an email from NVC  stating that they have received everything needed prior to attending  the interview and that they will work with the embassy to schedule an interview date and will let us know once a date is confirmed.

same here. I got all docs accepted few weeks ago but never receive a case complete. what to do in that case

 They're usually pretty good with sending emails regarding any updates, if they have your email address. But, you can call them as well if you like: 603-334-0700

How do you check if your case is complete??

Normally, NVC will send you an email stating that you are in the queue for an interview.......all my emails came in the middle of the night.

When your case is complete NVC sends you an email that they have received all the required documents and that you are in a queue.It can take several months before your interview can be scheduled after your case is complete. Mine took 7 months

It means your documents are waiting for review.......if they told you that your case is complete, then you are being placed in a queue for an interview date.
