  1. Hi, When submitting tax transcripts on CEAC is it okay to combine the 2018, 2017 and 2016 transcripts into 1 pdf? and in the comment section mention the order in which they appear in the pdf. I submitted it in 1 pdf and now just stressing out. Can someone please confirm this?
  2. Hey, Have just submitted all our paperwork online on CEAC tonight. Just curious about how long till we hear back and whats next? Will I receive a letter with interview and Medical or via email?
  3. Is it true that CEAC updates with a date change when an inquiry is made? Are those date changes essentially meaningless? Does a date change have more validity when it’s changed on its own without any inquiring? Thanks all!
  4. Hello, my Fiancé just had his interview and we are a bit confused with the CEAC status. I checked it by using the case # given by NVC and selecting IMMIGRANT VISA... Status says READY He checks it using the ID# on the DS-160 and selects NON-IMMIGRANT VISA and the status is "NO STATUS". So which is it? Why do both work? His interview went well but they asked for our additional proof of relationship/contact and pictures (which he handed over) and they gave him a 221g white form saying "Admin Review" and we will call you in 2 weeks. Gave him his passport back. Does anyone know what's going on? Or which status is correct? Thank you, Andie
  5. What documents are required for household member in a AOS tab? The household member of the petitioner does not do job. What documents must be submitted for the household member besides I-684A
  6. Hi all, From the time My wife submitted all civil docs for cr1 visa to the NVC on the CEAC site to when they first got back to us took a month and a half. Her police certificate document was deemed invalid as Morroco has more than one police certificate document required. One from the court and one from the local police station. This was not known to me before as i only submitted the police certificate from the local police station. I just wanted to get a tally on if the response time the 2nd time around will take the same amount of time as the first time around (a month and a half.) I would imagine not since we are only pending one doc but wanted to hear from your experience for those who needed to resubmit documents. Also wanted to know how long it took from when all documents are approved on the ceac site to the time when they send the interview letter. And then how long from the interview later to the interview date. Any info will be greatly appreciated. The wait is so long and brutal. Best, Syed
  7. Hello, Fiancé had interview November 15 and was issued 221g for joint sponsor and W2. Have had updates every week and today I checked and the case creation date and last update date were updated to today’s date. Still in administrative processing. What’s your experience with this? Going in the right direction?
  8. Hello, This is my first time posting here and I hope that it is in the correct place. On 09/10/2019 my wife and I received our second approval letter for her CR1 Visa and her case went to the NVC; I've seen a lot of posts on here about how it takes 4-8 weeks for our case to be input into the system and receive our logon credentials for CEAC. But as of today, 12/19/2019, we have still not received our login information to continue the process. I've tried calling the NVC but wasn't offered much help when inquiring about my wife's case. Does this part of the process normally take a little longer at times? I've seen quite a few posts on here from people who received their letter after we did and have already gone to the next steps of the process. Thank you for any input, - Justin
  9. Hi, we received our case number on the 9th of October. We submitted our ds 260 on the 14th of October. CEAC was down for 10 days so we couldn’t upload our documents till the 22nd of october. all of our documents show as submitted on CEAD. Both fees as paid, and ds 260 as completed. yet when i check the case tracker it says please submit requested documents. Has anyone else encountered this problem?
  10. Hello. I had my second interview. They said they will call with a decision in two days. The day after my interview the embassy emailed me to do my medical exam because the first one were expired. Two days after i did my medical exam they updated the status on CEAC. Since then nothing new. Its been1 month . I dont know what to do, to email the embassy or wait for an phone call or email from them.
  11. I initiated petition case for my husband in March 2018, He had his visa interview on 08/05/2019, was told he got approved and to wait for his passport to be returned to him in about 3 weeks, it’s been over two months now and he hasn’t received his passport, his case in the CEAC page shows ready for interview and it shows it has been updated several times, 09/30, 10/07, 10/08, 10/11 and 10/17, the embassy is only saying we have to wait and aren’t explaining what this means. We had a baby girl in May 2019 and he hasn’t been able to meet her. This wait is the worst.. Anyone experience something similar?
  12. Hi! We just received a notice from NVC about our case and when I log in, there are two messages named Tax Returns but when I click on it, it doesn't show any message! Is that normal? Tried on mobile and laptop, same result. So i tried to click on "Invalid doc" under AOS. But when I open it, it has the message "Due to a systems issue..." is everybody having this message? Since I don't know why the doc is invalid, can I assume that it is because we scanned the actual paper ITR, and not the one that can be downloaded from the IRS site? Help anyone? Below is the image that shows on ceac when opening AOS docs. Also included the blank message.
  13. Hi my name is Steve I am applying for a green card for my wife (I am a US citizen) and currently working on the upload process in CEAC. Did anyone go through the upload process via ceac for financial and supporting document of joint sponsor & household member? I was able to successfully add a joint sponsor in CEAC, but under the 'Affidavit of Support Documents & Financial Evidence' it displayed as 'N/A' for the added joint sponsor. I don't have any clue where I can upload the supporting documents for the joint sponsor. *Please refer to the bottom half of the attached screen shot, where its showing 'N/A' Question 1 Does anyone know where or when I can upload the supporting docs for the joint sponsor? I also need to add a household member who is related to the joint sponsor, but when trying to add the household member, I can only select myself (not the joint sponsor) for which sponsor the household member is related too. Question 2 Does anyone know how or when I can select the joint sponsor as the related sponsor? Appreciate your assistance!!

  15. We have been logging in and checking on CEAC and we have noticed that the systems are down since around 5 days ago. However, we got a message from NVC thru email today and we need to upload documents but upon clicking on "invalid doc" it shows the systems issue message in the image below. Is this happening to everyone? Oh what timing! 😫
  16. Hello guys! So we have a question and we think we just need some clarification. Today, we got this notice upon logging into the CEAC page. (Image below) And now we're confused. Is this a late notification? It says we should submit our documents but we have already uploaded them on CEAC last Sept 10. Or maybe they need us to send the docs thru mail? (Which i think is not really the case, but I'm that confused) Hope someone could enlighten us. Thank you in advance.
  17. Hello everyone! Hoping everyone is doing well, question... Some people from a group we have of our country are wondering why, even if they had their NVC number some days before last Tuesday October 1st,(embassy shipment day), still have "At NVC" status and haven't received NVC email. Is this normal? Thanks in advance!
  18. Hi guys! So we have submitted our docs in CEAC and so far, we're waiting for response. Now we just read how the orientation and type of document (pdf or jpeg) would affect the approval of the documents. I reviewed what we've sent and we have sent most in the upright position (easily read) except for my husband's(petitioner) and my joint sponsor's certificate of natiralization were rotated clockwise! Also, some of my scanned documents are in jpg! Should I be expecting them to be rejected?
  19. HI, I am trying to access my DS260 application today, but it is returning an "Application Error" message. Anyone having the same issues? How can I rectify it. Please help. Thanks.
  20. My father's initial status was Administrative Processing after his immigrant visa interview on June 27. He had to submit a few documents like updated police certificate and family registry and i864-A so he was given 221g. After submitting the documents on July 17, my mother's visa went from READY TO ISSUED on Aug 1 and my father's visa went from AP to READY FOR INTERVIEW. The date has been updated a few times but case still ready for interview. No feedback from embassy. Please help if you know anything about this scenario!
  21. Hello everyone, My fiance had his interview at the Sydney consulate a little over a week ago. He was given the 221(g) form since he did his medical exam a day before his interview. (Sydney allows people to do the medical exam a day before since they only have a few on their list of certified doctors for the interview). Firstly, I would like to know an estimate of how long it would take for the medical exam results to be sent to the consulate and how long it takes for the consulate to look over that before making a decision? Secondly, when we go onto the Consular Electronic Application Center to check the visa application status, it says "No Status". I read online somewhere that the status gets updated before you have your interview and after you pay the DS-160 fees. As I said we have already had our interview, so that means we have also paid the DS-160 fees. Is there something I am missing? I am honestly really worried that I missed a step. We were hoping that he would receive his passport back with the approved visa before October, but at this rate I am kinda getting worried that our plans will have to change.. Thanks! 😽
  22. My wife had interview on August 8 at us evee Embassy in Djibouti after the interview ceac status changed to administration processing A week after that it changed to ready it has been a month sense the lost update. At the time interview they kept her passport and told her everything is good and to come back on the 19 to pick up visa she went on the 19th and they won’t let her in because she don’t have an email or an appointment .the status last update August 16 I don’t know why or how long it’s going to take for them to issue the visa. And I don’t know why the status saying ready for interview and she already had her interview Your case is ready for your interview when scheduled at the U.S. Consular section. If you have already scheduled an appointment for an interview, please prepare your documents as directed in your appointment letter and appear at the consulate on the appointed date and time. Otherwise, please wait until you have been notified of your interview appointment.

  23. All my documents for my immigrant visa has been accepted by NVC, but i got no message from NVC as waiting for an interview date as my wife had. The only message i got when my last document was accepted was a NVC Feedback message. As attached the last message was on 2 July 2019, and i am expecting to receive between 60-90 days the interview date, but now i got some doubts. Should i be ok guys given they accepted all documents and remains no action to be taken in the NVC system???
  24. I have been trying to contact NVC for two days(Thursday and Friday) now and no luck getting through, when I say none I mean NONE!!! I submitted all the documents paid my fees but I had to resubmit two documents because they said they could not be read clearly. So I resubmitted the requested documents. It's going on week four since I sent the documents, everything else that I sent has been accepted. Should I just give up calling NCV to see if they will look at the documents or keep trying? This ish is so frigging frustrating I just want my husband here and to be done with this part of the process.
  25. Hello all! We are waiting for my husband's interview date at this time and are looking to prep for the final step of this process! What kinds of questions can he expect? Do we need to provide proof of our relationship even though our I-130 was approved? Will they be examining our relationship? What kinds of things should he expect and prep for during the interview? Anyone who has gone through this process specifically in Guatemala able to offer any insight? Thanks!
