Yes I am at the NVC stage.

To my knowledge I mailed everything when I was at the NVC stage. I never uploaded anything online. I do not think Dominican Republic is one of the countries that downloads their documents online. I suggest you call NVC tomorrow and double check if you havent already.

My Dominican Republic case is an CEAC (online) case. They specifically emailed me my NVC notice and instructed me to log into the online portal and upload all documents there. They made it clear that I should not mail anything in and everything should be done online. I'm not sure how they decide who should mail in stuff vs who should strictly do everything electronically.

There's a size limit. I think you can submit as many documents under additional as long as they don't exceed the size allowed per document. I had to shrink a couple of my large documents to a smaller size in order to upload them. It was quite a pain and I hope they accept the lesser quality as a result.

Ok, thank u so much this was very helpful. Because I was worried abt not being able to submit additional evidence. When u say size allowed,  r u talking abt a normal size paper? My husband will be going thru Ghana for his interview

You're welcome. By size, I mean file size. They have instructions on the CEAC site on uploading stuff etc.
