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 :) That means if you are on this thread WE expect you to have an up to date timeline.

 

Current case file creation time:

This is the link to go to see what date they are working on. Follow  it says up to 6 weeks but recently that 6 weeks is about 4 weeks from approval at USCIS.
Once your case has been created, we will contact you with instructions on how to begin processing. Until your case is entered into our system, we unfortunately won’t have any information about your case.

 

Current case review time:

This is the link to see what date they are reviewing. Please allow up to three-weeks for NVC to review your forms and documents once we receive both the petitioner’s financial documents and the applicant’s civil documents. You must also have paid all required fees and submitted your visa application online. We will not review your file until we have received all of the above items

Hi Gar9,

 

As I mentioned in my response, I just recently submitted my parents’ docs for NVC processing and their cases are now documentarily qualified (both happened in mid June). I am not so sure if the most recent extension of Trump’s EO has completely stopped NVC from reviewing IR5 cases though. Maybe you can give them a call and ask?

IR5 and all other suspended visa categories are still being reviewed and DQed by NVC.

NVC are reviewing documents for cases not subject to the travel restrictions first, but they did not put a stop to reviewing the others.

It is really surprising that you submitted Docs to NVC in June 2020 and got DQed in June 2020 itself , in less than a month . Could you please tell specificaly as to within how many days your cases were DQed after submission ?  NVC is taking about 3 months as normai time . Did you get your cases expedited for some specific reason ?

I’m really excited to see CR1 / IR1 categories appear to being prioritized during the period for the EO.

 

I-130 submitted - July 12th 2019

Approved - Feb 25th 2020

NVC Submitted - June 28th
 

and now we await patiently and hope for an early approval 😁

I know it was unusually fast. Both of my parents’ cases got approved by NVC within 12 hours of me submitting their docs. It was crazy, but it was not completely unique though. I have seen several cases in here got DQ just as fast. I have no idea why it happened. It could just be pure luck. And no, there was no expedition.

It's not actually that surprising these days. Others who have called the NVC were told that they had started training more people on processing these cases and they were pulling random case numbers which seemed to be the ones recently submitted. The timeline posted online isn't currently accurate. My case took about 2 weeks to DQ after submitting the documents, but at the time I submitted there were many people receiving DQs in less than 24 hours. There's really no way to know how long your case will take to be approved.

What type of visa you have applied for ? Is it in banned category or otherwise?

 

 

Mine is IR-1/CR-1 which is not a banned category. That may have played a role in it getting processed sooner than others, but as you see above, there are still instances where other visa categories are getting processed more quickly for whatever reason, so it's still hard to provide any specifics for timeframes.
