NVC process

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am confused here about the DS-3032 form, who fills this form (me the petitioner or my wife the beneficiary)? I've seen people emailing the choice of agent to NVC using james shortchut, who actually sends the email (the petionner or the beneficiary). After my wife designates me as the agent of choice, will I receive all the remaining forms? Do I have to send the forms back to her for signature? Please advice me here, I am expecting to receive the first forms from NVC very soon. Your help is much appreciated.

:) Hello! I am just new here too but I learned a lot from the experts here in the forum. DS3032 is being signed by the beneficiary/ applicant. NVC is taking long in replying requests via email, lately its been taking them at least 7-14 days to reply. In my case, I have sent them an email a week ago, this was just my trial email and I still have not gotten any reply from them. At this time, I am going for mailing it Express Mail, just like in JSC. I decided not to go to emailing NVC for the DS3032. It's still your choice. Read more posts and you get a feel from other VJers who sent an email.

Good luck! You'll get all the help on here.... just read more, you'll get all the answers and can decide what's best for your case.

Thank you all for your replies. In case I am opting for the email alternative, who should send the email me or the beneficiary? Thanks again!

It's the foreign benificiary who appoints the agent, so in this case your wife should email them appointing you. You will get a copy of the original DS-3032 they send to her in the mail though.

I would like to say that even though emailing worked real fast for us, the NVC is now so backed up that an email back from them accepting the choice of agent can take up to 10 days ... and some people have had to email them several times. I'm not sure you can save much time anymore this way :(

I'm the beneficiary. In my case, my husband sent me DS3032 by FAX. I signed it and sent it back directly to NVC thru Fedex. I received the NVC's original mail a week after I sent them the form. Goodluck.

kAYART, one question please. Did your husband generated the barcode for you or sent the form without one? Thank you!

The DS3032 that my husband sent me was already barcoded. Actually that was totally the same form that I received from NVC.

Sample:

OMB No.1234-5678

EXPIRATION DATE: 12/31/2006

ESTIMATED BURDEN: 10 minutes

make sure that the address is complete and correct. We will use this address for future mailings.

Thanks a lot Kayray for your fast reply. Does anybody knows if it's ok to send an email and mail the actual DS3032 form. Would that potentially cause any problem?
