Are we Lost In The System?

25 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just before COVID hit last year and made it all a little crazy, NVC sent notification of requirement to attach correct forms.  We went through the process and my online status reads in AOS and Applicant sections as per the attached.

 

That last activity was 28 Jan 2020

 

I can see in some timelines in the UK for IR/CR1 visas, there are people getting interviews.  It seems to have gone into a complete silence for us and the waiting is of course no fun.

 

I'm trying to understand if we have got stuck in a hole somewhere?  Our attorneys just keep saying everything is slowed right down and we just have to wait.  Ask NVC seems to produce a generic response.

 

We are pretty much at wits end and to see others with dates of applications in 2020 getting interviews is to say the least, disconcerting.

 

Any ideas, or thoughts are greatly appreciated!

It appears you are in the queue for an interview.  Once your case reaches the front of the queue for your consulate at NVC, they (NVC) will schedule your interview.  Patience is still the key.

 

1. Case is DQ'd by NVC.

2. Case then enters NVC queue for your consulate and waits at NVC.

3. Consulate informs NVC of available interview date for upcoming month.

4. NVC schedules interview when case reaches the front of the queue for that consulate.

5. NVC notifies person of interview date via email.

6. NVC then sends case to consulate.

After the interview is scheduled, it can take several days to several weeks for the consulate to receive the case.

I also don't know if the the fact that we were told to add on an old J1 I had from 2006 and that it says "Submitted" and not "Accepted" is a possible reason to still be sat in this state of suspended animation (as per below)

 

I've also read about getting an email to say about it being confirmed that all was accepted, which I haven't had so makes me wonder as well.

Cheers,

 

I appreciate the order in things and thank you for that. 

 

I'm asking about the specifics of what I put though - Does that 2006 J1 sitting at submitted mean that the paperwork section is NOT complete and accepted and therefore we are not in that queue?  People who are filing in say May of 2020 are getting interview dates and we are it seems are ignored by the system.

You are not in the queue until everything is accepted.  Funny it's not rejected though.  Call NVC about this.

Yeah this is my big concern. I've tried calling from the UK but it kicks me out of the system citing call volumes.

Yep.  When I said said you were in the queue earlier, I didn't realize you had an outstanding document.  Need to get that one resolved.  Good luck.

Getting the attorneys to realise that is my first issue. Been trying to for ages!

Keep calling. What I did back in the NVC days is call every 30 seconds until my call was in the queue. Usually took 10 minutes tops, after which a 45-90 minute wait followed. But the NVC reps were usually friendly and helpful. I usually called Friday afternoons. Many have reported good results calling right when NVC opens in the morning.

Thanks Ramon, expensive process from the UK side of things. Might have to be a project for the wife/attorneys.

If your wife is in the US, then yes, she should be doing the calling.  Either of you can do it though.

Was the J-1 subject to a two year rule that was not completed somehow?   Odd for it being 15 years later though.

Apparently the J1 is no issue.  What has actually happened is that the 2018 W2/1099 tax transcript is missing form the upload section for the financial details. 

 

This was sent to the attorneys at the same time as the 2016 & 2017 ones and they say that it was uploaded all at the same time.  I suspect they forgot and in truth have messed up and therefore we have sat for 13 months when there was in reality no need to.  Not a happy camper!

This is very frustrating indeed and I am very sorry to hear about this. I have an attorney myself, but honestly, I´ve found VJ.com to be much, MUCH more helpful.

 

For the future NVC calls, try calling them right before they open or right at closing times - there is a higher chance of getting connected to a human then, as there are lower call volumes. Also, try using Skype or something similar for cheaper phone call rates.

 

Good luck!
