Welcome to another monthly thread for those going through NVC


Please read everything below and refer to it throughout your NVC journey, whether this is your first month at NVC or your third. :bonk:


Before posting questions, please read the wiki Saylin wrote on the NVC process here. Once you're done, read it one or two more times to really understand it ;)Don't forget to also read the official form instructions as well as USCIS and NVC's websites!

If you want to see a visual of the NVC process, please view Saylin's flowchart here.

Yes this thread was created by our great Queen Saylin and the knowledge is still going forward. This thread I pray stays alive and well as many who have gone through the process or still going can chime in and help and assist.

If you're wondering about time frames, look at the fellow members right here in this thread! Study their signatures/timelines and make notes. VJ also has this awesome page. Use it! I sure did during my process smile.png That means if you are on this thread WE expect you to have an up to date timeline.


And once you've got a case complete, please join the case complete/interview thread started by me, Dwheels76 on (currently July 2019 thread),

Hi everyone,


8 weeks of waiting and they finally received it in. I am wondering how long it is going to take them to assign case #. I hope not their 8 weeks...


Btw. Is there anything I can do in order to speed up the process now (medical issues) or nothing can be done without case #?
