  1. Well Glory Hallelujah. Just got the update at 3:15 today April 7th. Our I-751 was approved and card produced and being mailed. And N-400 Approved and "Oath Ceremony Will Be Scheduled". Thank God. Guess she changed her mind about the N-14 and let it go. Very happy couple right now.

  2. Well Glory Hallelujah. Just got the update at 3:15 today April 7th. Our I-751 was approved and card produced and being mailed. And N-400 Approved and "Oath Ceremony Will Be Scheduled". Thank God. Guess she changed her mind about the N-14 and let it go. Very happy couple right now.
  3. yes the lack of education of those that should know these documents is scary. Well congrat's to you. Well hubby got the 1 year stamp good till next January so we shall see what happens in the coming months. I would think all officers would get the cases that just need evidence or some other things and no interview like us. Even though updated evidence seems so futile at this point like good grief.
  4. That's really great. At least you will have 10 year card to have no more extension letter until all this madness is over. I'm hoping not to get a congressman involved. It's only been 37 days. I just want either approval or send the blasted N-14 so a decision can be made.
  5. i believe the embassy contacts you once things open up. Can't do a medical or interview so now you just wait on them. Wouldn't hurt to email them and ask what are the next steps.
  6. Oh wow congratulations. So you had combo interview 118 days ago? We had combo interview 37 days ago. Suppose to be sent a N-14. Still waiting on that. Hoping they just approve.
  7. So you already have your case#, paid your fees? How far in the process at NVC did you get?
  8. Hang in there everyone . Praying this month passes without issue and we can get back on track and in business. Stay safe and healthy everyone.
  9. Good grief 1 day you already got welcome letter that's awesome. Did you by chance file online? Or if you mailed in were you assigned an IOE#? Using 2018 is no problem. Just use that.
  10. Passport is not proof of domicile. They want to see address proof, Drivers license, voter registration card, etc.
  11. Well what can we say about March I am speechless. All we can do is move on to the next month, pray and hope and have the faith for the best. So let's close March which seems like the longest month EVER! and let's welcome April with open arms and positive energy.

  12. 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. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 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. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/nvc-timeframes.html 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 https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/nvc-timeframes.html And once you've got a case complete, please join the case complete/interview thread started by me, Dwheels76 on (currently April 2020 thread), https://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/736323-case-complete-to-interview-may-2020/

  14. Welcome to the Case Complete to Interview Monthly thread You can view my spreadsheet Case Complete to Interview Spreadsheet To update your interview date go here. Case Complete to Interview Form For New people to the thread please go Case Complete to Interview Form and input your information in the form and it will be added to the form. Everyone should be clicking on the Portal tab to visit the information for their country. If nothing is there or information needs updating. Update or add. Its up to all of us to keep this information current, relevant and helpful to others. Special Note: Different consulates or embassies have strict guidelines as to what type of bags/purses/cellphones etc can be carried in. And whether they provide any lockers (or not) for temp storage. As many travel from far away (by air/train/cars, one needs to specially know what they will not be able to take inside the consulate and where to store their personal belongings. Here are some FAQ and other tidbits that may be useful to you. Be sure to visit your countries portal and click on the Consular Information and also Consular reviews. FAQ I just called and got Case Complete how long does it take to get the email as confirmation? Well it has been taking 5 to 7 days to get case complete email from the date they Case Complete. How long after Case Complete will I get an interview? Okay this is the BIG mystery of NVC. How it usually goes is end of the month and first week of month they start scheduling for interviews for the that upcoming month. Since January they have been pretty consistent starting about the last 2 days of the month and finishing that following first week of next month Do I have to call for my interview date? NVC has improved greatly since March. The interview letter now comes day of schedule. So call if you want its up to you. I know someone who got interview in the middle of the month. How is that possible? Usually when you see someone pop up with an interview outside the bunch its usually the result of a cancellation or the embassy opening up a slot. Just because scheduling stops doesn't mean they filled up all slots. They may have more slots than appointments which is good. So someone gets case complete and immediately they get an interview. It happens. Remember every embassy has its own slots and schedule. Some like Mexico, Ghana are very busy with a long waiting list. Some like Yemen, well it may be a few months to get in. Iceland you get interview immediately scheduled after case Complete. I need to change our interview date what do I do? Once you receive your interview date track your casefile. Call NVC ask when your casefile left than you can follow the DHL instructions to embassy. The contact your embassy (email is best) and ask to be rescheduled later, earlier just ask. What do I need to bring to interview? When you receive your P4 Letter (Interview letter) it will have your personalized checklist of things to bring or not. It has been suggested because things have been lost between NVC and embassy to bring everything (Originals) to the interview so if they don't have at embassy you aren't delayed.It's up to you. It doesn't happen much but it does happen. How to expedite at NVC? Go to this link has good information how to go about it. http://boureypeatnut...m/expedite.html Just to remind everyone to revisit the NVC Process Wiki, NVC Process Wiki ******************************* Thanks to Fabian&Ross for spelling this all out. Once you get the interview letter reference this. You must bring the following items to the visa interview: Any original documents the NVC requested that you did not submit (refer to the document list below) If the physician gives you your medical exam results, bring them to your interview in the envelope sealed by the medical office. Two passport photographs measuring 2 inches by 2 inches (5 cm by 5 cm) with a white background A valid unexpired passport Photocopies of all civil documents A new police certificate from your current country of residence, if you obtained the police certificate more than one year ago.

It only works about 50% of the time when you tick the box on the DS-260. As soon as you have your SSN you may work. Your passport visa and the immigration stamp is the equivalent of your green card.
