  1. They allow the petitioner with the Beneficiary. You need to carry your US passport & you can accompany your spouse. My mom had an interview last month and I was with her all the time. They let me in with her and I was sitting in the waiting area where they took the interview. Also, when they asked my mom about me, she informed them I was right there, they called at the window and asked me to give all my docs because it was a bit difficult for my mom to give all my W2's & Tax Transcripts. The interview was done in 30 minutes. If the petitioner is present, they will call you if they need you or you can go and stand at the window to help your loved ones.
  2. Yes, you can travel for 1 year with the Immigration stamp on your passport. You don't have to worry however if you applied for a green card after you entered the state and you got the receipt in the mail always carry that paper while you traveling abroad. Also, the officer should have informed you at the time of POE and when they stamped your passport.
  3. Thanks, I call them and see if I can accompany my Parents. All the best to you as well.
  4. I have no clue about this. I read it on Mumbai consulate guide but they only allow if the applicant is Minor or Senior citizen with special needs. You can call Mumbai consulate helpline number and make sure with them. I also wanted to know if a U.S. citizen can accompany an applicant during the interview. Let me know if you find out
  5. NVC will send you the Interview letter but the email you received from NVC is also valid. You can print out the email body and take it at the time of interview. if you look at the email, it has all beneficiary information in it including their new Alien# (GC number).
  6. Got Interview letter from NVC. Interview scheduled in March, Mumbai Consulate. CC : Jan 16th IR-5 Category (Parents of U.S. Citizen)
  7. Mumbai Consulate changed to Electronic since Oct 2018. All Immigration cases in India now handled by Mumbai Embassy Electronically & everyone have to attend their Immigration based Interview at Mumbai consulate from October 2018. There are few Consulates still do Manual Process but Mumbai got changed since last year so all the electronic processing handles by a different team at NVC that is why they transferred your call to another department who takes care of Electronic Processing. There are few people who got their CC dates in Oct or Nov and haven't got their Interview date yet at Mumbai because during that time the process got changed completely.
  8. According to me, updating timeline is not kind of personal information and if that's the case then at least they should respond to other people questions & concerns. They should help each other out that is why everyone is here.
  9. If it is a TOS violation then they should better update their Timeline on time & respond to other people questions. Once people get their Interview dates they don't care about other people & no longer be active on this forum. This is BS
  10. Sooner the better dear friend. NVC is already done scheduling Interviews for February. Now everyone on this thread is waiting & hoping to get their interview dates in March.
  11. I have created a new thread for Interview in March 2019. Please follow this thread for all case completed at NVC & still waiting for the interviews
  12. 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 the end of the month and the first week of the month they start scheduling for interviews for 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 the day of schedule. So call if you want it's up to you. I know someone who got an interview in the middle of the month. How is that possible? Usually, when you see someone pop up with an interview outside the bunch it's 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 an 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 case file. Call NVC ask when your casefile left than you can follow the DHL instructions to the embassy. The contact your embassy (email is best) and ask to be rescheduled later, earlier just ask. What do I need to bring to the 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 on how to go about it. http://boureypeatnut...m/expedite.html Just to remind everyone to revisit the NVC Process Wiki, NVC Process Wiki ******************************* Once you get the interview letter to 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. Any additional documents listed in the U.S. Embassy or Consulate specific interview guidelines ******************************************************** For those who want to request an earlier interview date here is a template written up by our own TeaCup.

NO NEED FOR ACCESS CODE, that is for other procedures like getting a copy of a green card, etc. 1. Create the ELIS account here: https://myaccount.uscis.dhs.gov/ 2. Go here to pay a fee: https://www.uscis.go...g-online-filing 3. Click to pay the USCIS immigrant fee icon. 4. Click "continue" at the bottom. 5. Enter the Alien Number and the NVC or DOS case. Use the same email you used on the ELIS account. This is critical to enable your created ELIS account to receive your payment information. 6. You will get an email confirming your payment. 7. When you log again on the ELIS account, you will see your case number. (It is added automatically). 8. Login into your ELIS account to track or check the status of your Green Card. Note: Green Card process starts when an immigrant enters the USA and is processed at POE. ******************Tips about your getting your SSN****************** If you don't have your SSN card within 21 days of your POE, go IN PERSON to your local SSA office and see if your application was forwarded by the Immigration officer. 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.
  13. Is anyone having trouble calling NVC lately? I am trying to call them since this morning but it disconnects automatically.
