  1. I Received a checklist letter from NVC that say: ______CORRESPONDENCE INSTRUCTIONS:_________________________________ For electronic processing, all forms and documents that we request and require from you should be scanned and e-mailed to NVC as Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files. The documents should be sent as attachments with your e-mail response and not in a web file. NVC is unable to process documents submitted in web files. Forms and documents should not be mailed through the postal service. However, the applicant must bring the original version of all civil documents, such as birth, marriage, and police certificates, to the visa interview. Failure to present the required originals at the visa interview will result in a denial or delay in obtaining a visa for the sponsored applicant. Any questions regarding your petition should continue to be directed to NVCElectronic@state.gov. Along with some civil documents missing. Does this mean I must submit the civil documents by email?
  2. Hi everyone, My case was completed at the NVC 03/16/18 (over 70 days ago) and I am waiting for an interview date to be assigned at the Montreal Embassy. My visa category is EB-2. Is anyone in a similar situation (EB-2, Montreal) who can share their experience/wait time? This is taking much longer than anticipated. Thanks a lot!
  3. As at today, March 30, 2022, the JM US embassy is reviewing DQ cases from the NVC and as far as I saw, from June and July 2020 for F Categories. Have you received your interview letter? Interview time frame from IL receipt is 2-6 weeks. Don’t forget to check your spam or junk. Seeing too many instances of people missing interview letters because the email went elsewhere. Lol check under mattress if you must but please check! 😅😂
  4. Do you know how long takes to NVC add a derivate applicant? My husband is the petitioner, we add our little daughter in NVC phase, 2 weeks and no response.
  5. I was a regular reader of the last London thread to keep myself updated with current timelines etc before it went to 70+ pages and way off topic. I thought it was such a useful resource so I’ve decided to start the ball rolling again so we can keep each other updated on news as it comes in. To kick us off, me and my wife were DQ 10th July so we’re hoping to get our interview appointment email early November. It appears June DQ dates have been scheduled so hoping this is our time after literally years of waiting. Fingers crossed for no Tier 3 lockdown in London!
  6. Hello everyone, I am wondering if anyone has received an interview appointment at the Abu Dhabi Embassy after recently getting their DQ. it would be great if someone would share their experience.
  7. Hello everyone. We submitted our documents to CEAC (IR-1/CR-1) on January 19th, but yesterday (March 18th) after reading some posts about required financial documents, we uploaded additional pay stubs and some other financial supporting documents, and submitted them. My question is; Would this delay or reset our processing time for NVC? There was no warning or anything that states any delay on CEAC, and we couldn’t find any information on this matter online, so I wanted to start a new topic and ask my VJ friends.
  8. Anyone filling from Qatar, please share your experience. How long did you wait for the interview from the NVC approval ?
  9. Hello everyone Someone have any information about appointments at the US embassy in Freetown ( sierra Leone)? ( they are conducting interview of which month) For immigrant VISA My case has been at NVC since January We have sent all the documents and NVC has accepted them but we still haven't received an email from them to tell us that we are documentarily qualified. And the appointment for my interview has still not been scheduled. Do they have to email us first to confirm that we are documentary qualified before scheduling my interview? This long wait becomes depressing I miss my husband 😢
  10. Hello all! Hope to receive some help...First off, im petitioning my husband who is here in the US. He has an approved i601a waiver, on January 22nd we mailed our supporting documents for ds260 to NVC and last Friday we received an email saying they need the Police Certificate, because the one we sent they can not accept. (im including what the email says) ______10 - GUATEMALA POLICE CERTIFICATE:___________________________ We cannot accept the police certificate document you sent. You must send us the correct document so we can continue to process your case. To see the guidelines for your document, go to our website at nvc.state.gov/find. Select your country from the menu on the left side of the page. The next page will be your country's "Reciprocity Schedule." Click on "Police, Court, Prison Records" on the bottom. This will take you to a page with the exact requirements for the type of police certificate you must submit to NVC. We sent Antecedentes Penales and Antecedentes policiacos. We have a lawyer and they were sure everything was correct. We look at the website it shows and it says this... Police Certificates Available Fees: Free service Document Name: Antecedentes Issuing Authority: Ministerio Publico (Public Ministry) Special Seal(s) / Color / Format: White sheet with authentication code at the bottom. Issuing Authority Personnel Title: Minister of the Public Ministry Registration Criteria: See registration requirements here Procedure for Obtaining: Application is made online. The applicant may pick up the report in person or send a representative with a signed consent letter and a copy of the applicant’s identity document. Certified Copies Available: Certified copies are not available Alternate Documents: There are no alternate documents I went on the website and it's the Ministerio Publico de Guatemala. Has anyone else had to get this document from this institution? Our lawyer says its the first they here of this and from everyone else I hadn't seen NVC ask for this different document. Since my husband is here in the US he has a lawyer in Guatemala get his documents then he sends it to us here in the US. But even that lawyer has never heard of this. If any one has had this experience, I would really appreciate to hear from you all. Thanks and good luck to all!!
  11. I heard through different forums that there are less number of DQ people in 2021 as compare to 2020 in CR 1 IR1 that is the reason why india and philippines have reduce their backlog in IR1 CR1 categories ... please discuss its true or not...
  12. I recently uploaded some of my documents to the NVC and had a question about the I864A. My father must file the I864A since he is a household member as I live with my parents after returning to the US, if I understand this correctly. He files his taxes jointly with my mother who has been retired for the last 4 years or so, making her individual income zero. I have seen many people say that the I864A will still be required from her due to their taxes being filed jointly even though she has no income. Reading through the I864A instructions, I have found this: I have not found anything directly stating both of my parents will need to file the I864A, just include every related W-2 and Form 1099 which would only include my father's. I have two questions related to this: 1. Will I need to include my mother in part 5-7 of the I864 which relates to household members I am combining my income with? I currently have only included my father as she has no income so I figured it would be unnecessary. 2. If it truly is necessary for me to upload an I864A for my mother as well, will I need to create another household member item in CEAC separately from the one I created for my father, or will I need to upload her I864A in the same section I have uploaded my fathers along with tax information, their marriage certificate, etc.?
  13. Hi there, my wife (USC) and I (Canadian citizen) are currently living in Canada and are finishing up our NVC stage of the application. We were told that it's best if we have a joint sponsor, but I'm thinking that we arguably do not need one. Our background: My wife's current income (at her job in Canada) is roughly $50,500 USD (converted at today's market rate). Our total value of liquidable assets in Canada is equivalent to $69,000 USD. Given that our household size is 2 (should we not use a joint sponsor) and the Federal Poverty Guideline is $22,887 - we are well beyond the FPGx3 number ($68,661 USD). My wife and I are not going to be continuing our current jobs after we arrive in the United States. Therefore, I have 2 questions: 1. Is my wife's current income (at her Canadian job) countable towards our net worth as it relates to our application or not? 2. Do we actually need a joint sponsor, given all of the information above, or can we just apply as a 2 person household and be sure to include evidence for all of our assets currently in Canada (i.e. savings accoutn statements, investment account statements, etc.)? Thank you so much for your help!
  14. Hello All I thought I would make a Thread for Australian's who have their CASE COMPLETE at NVC and are waiting for an Interview to be scheduled at the US Consulate in Sydney! It might make it easy for us to keep in touch and update each other! I hope this is OK 🐨 We were DQ'd this morning so we will be waiting a while lol
  15. Does anyone know how long the Nairobi Embassy is currently taking to schedule interviews? We were approved by the NVC in April and are trying to get a sense for how long the wait is going to be (we originally submitted our I-130 back in Feb 2021, so this whole process has taken almost 1.5 years so far!). We're applying for a CR1 visa -- I'm the sponsor (US citizen), he's from South Africa but living in Kenya / applying through that consulate.
  16. Our F2A petition was dq'd in July 2020 and the petition was upgraded to IR1 in May 2021. My question is, how is our petition going to be placed in the IR1 queue at NVC? Are they still going to use the dq date or the date that the petition was upgraded to IR1?
  17. My parents who live in New Delhi, got their I-130 processed with a DQ date of Jan 4, 2022.Does anyone have an idea what DQ dates is Mumbai consulate processing now? Four months have passed since DQ status and no interview letter yet. They are in IR5 category.
  18. Hi I submitted wife and daughter documents at NVC wife documents has been accepted and daughter documents has been DQ is that part of the process >?
  19. On April 27 I got an RFE to replace applicant's birth certificate with " Folio de Nacimiento"( Honduras) Folio of birth which is the equivalent of a birth certificate in USA. This was the only document that was rejected by NVC. It was a mistake of mine since Honduras has several ways to expedite a birth certificate, and the accepted one is " Folio de Nacimiento" Question: Do I need to apostille this document? Does it need a certified translantion? If you look at the " folio de nacimiento" it looks very complex in order to fit it a 8.5x11 paper. I need some help, I don't want another RFE
  20. I had one question related to my case status I had received interview letter a week ago In the letter, name of all 5 members are included to attend interview. But when i check nvc case status it shows only 4 serial case number who are ready for interview Pls help me what i can do ??
  21. Hey guys quick question . So all my documents in NvC are showing accepted. But they were asking for my joint sponors 2020 tax because they still were not filed at the time we submitted all our other docs. How long does NVC take to review additional documents if all others are accepted? Or do you go to the back of the line and have to wait another two months or so?
  22. Hello everyone, I am the beneficiary and my case has been DQ'D at NVC and I am waiting for interview at Mumbai Embassy. My daughter who is a step child of my husband, her case has been approved at USCIS, but we decided to put it on hold before applying at NVC as they're documents we are awaiting for her to be DQ'D. My question is will it be okay at the interview if I say that my daughter will be joining later on and that she lives with my parents here in India, while I will be travelling back and forth for her. I read somewhere that if the dependent's case is pending at uscis or nvc, the embassy refuses the visa stating that it'll approve once the child's case is approved. Does the embassy takes interviews together of parents and kids in CR1 category or is it separate? Thank you in advance.
  23. Hi to all👋🏽 finally my mother in law got her interview scheduled for next month, how do I register her interview appointment online? in the instructions it states I have to do so.
  24. My husband (in Morocco) and I (in the states) submitted all docs to NVC yesterday. In the beginning of the application process on the CEAC (Consular Electronic Application Center) stated "If your case is processing electronically, please scan and email your documents to NVCElectronic@state.gov". This confused me as we submitted the documents on the website. While researching the information, I found "only email documents if instructed. Submitting documents by email when not instructed to will delay the processing of your case." So now I am not sure what to do. I don't want to email if it is redundant and will delay our case. I am second-guessing this now. Should we email even if we submitted online? I can't find a single piece of information on this anywhere. Did anyone else do this? Help or guidance would be appreciated!! Ty!!
  25. Hello all again (lol), I have more questions. First, I would like to know once your case is sent from NVC to the Embassy and once you have the interview with the embassy, the embassy is responsible for documentation correct? We got documentation stating we need to upload to ceac, but also it was said to e-mail the final document to this e-mail TokyoNIV@state.gov. E-mailing makes more sense to me since it seems the NVC part of the process is done. Second, my wife received an e-mail form the embassy with the below: [X] Affidavit of Support, I-864 for another Joint Sponsor ( This has already been submitted and paid hence why it is at the embassy now) [X] IRS Federal tax transcripts or return for the another joint sponsor 2020 or 2021 [X] IRS W-2 for the another joint sponsor 2020 or 2021 of tax year (2020 was given and in my current NVC file along with 2019 that was given at the interview) [X] Proof of U.S. Citizenship or Lawful Permanent Resident (copy of ppt bio page or green card) for the another joint sponsor (I have this for my affidavit, but wasn't requested after the interview)
