  1. 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
  2. Hey Everyone, Currently a situation has occurred and we have decided to remain in Sweden. Living in Sweden now, we had filed all of our paperwork, got approved from the NVC recently, and are waiting on a date for the interview at the embassy. But as this may come as a shock to some, we can not move to the states. So a few questions have risen. 1.) Should a formal letter be written to the NVC and to contact the embassy to inform them of the situation? 2.)Is there a possibility of punishment such as a fine or a travel ban (my wife is not allowed into the U.S. for example)? 3.)Can we still go through with the process and move to the states years later? (guessing obviously not....) 4.)May we reapply for a green card in the future (in 10-12 years)? This decision has rocked us to the core and I want to be a 100% on what the consequences will be. Thank you to all that help me. Cheers.
  3. Hi, Due to Covid19, it's really difficult to get police clearance certificate (PCC) in India; my NVC application just pending because I can't get the PCC, is it ok if I submit the civil documents without PCC and submit the PCC at the time of interview? Kindly help. Thanks!
  4. I'm curious if anybody else is experiencing the same problem I'm having with messages on the Dept. of State site. When I click on messages in my inbox, a grey box temporarily opens beneath the list of messages, but disappears a short time later without displaying the message. My husband and I have tried 3 different computers and every browser we can think of (Firefox, Chrome, Safari, IE, Brave) but the result is always the same. We're not sure what else to do.
  5. Hi Everyone, I have about had it. First, my husband and I got an email today to check our NVC messages. We logged onto the site and found that his police certificate, my I-864, and my tax transcripts were rejected. My documents were rejected because they were difficult to read (I guess), and we aren't really sure why his police certificate got rejected. (He is from the UK and used ACRO for the police certificate, which was what we were told to use by NVC. The only thing we are thinking is that he did upload an extra page in addition to the actual certificate which was essentially the confirmation page that the police certificate would be ok for visa services. Anyone have any ideas? Other than that- the message that we apparently got from NVC was "police certificate required for Great Britain," which was what it was. However, we did not know what the message said because no matter how many times we refreshed, or how long we left the page open, we were never able to see the message from the NVC. So, I called, and the woman was really nice, and she said that this has been pretty common over the last few weeks. So once I got off the phone I just went to re-scan the documents and I've been getting this message ever since: Server Error in '/IV' Application. Security Exception Description: The application attempted to perform an operation not allowed by the security policy. To grant this application the required permission please contact your system administrator or change the application's trust level in the configuration file. Exception Details: System.Security.SecurityException: The source was not found, but some or all event logs could not be searched. Inaccessible logs: Security. Source Error: The source code that generated this unhandled exception can only be shown when compiled in debug mode. To enable this, please follow one of the below steps, then request the URL: 1. Add a "Debug=true" directive at the top of the file that generated the error. Example: <%@ Page Language="C#" Debug="true" %> or: 2) Add the following section to the configuration file of your application: <configuration> <system.web> <compilation debug="true"/> </system.web> </configuration> Note that this second technique will cause all files within a given application to be compiled in debug mode. The first technique will cause only that particular file to be compiled in debug mode. Important: Running applications in debug mode does incur a memory/performance overhead. You should make sure that an application has debugging disabled before deploying into production scenario. Does anyone have any ideas? I've tried over and over again on multiple different browsers but nothing seems to do the trick..... Thanks!
  6. Hi All, My i130 is approved in USCIS and was sent to NVC for processing. NVC has reviewed my petition and has documentarily qualified it and is awaiting for an interview schedule at US consulate India. My question is, I haven't uploaded my PCC document in portal and have requested NVC regarding the pandemic situation and the temporary shutdown of PSK/RPO in my circle (Tamil Nadu). I have scheduled appointment at PSK twice and in both occurrence the PSK was closed, am unsure when the PSK will resume and will I be getting the PCC on same day of appointment. If the US consulate interview date is scheduled, what should I do to get the PCC expedite and is there any alternative? Regards, Rafic
  7. Hello guys!! Will it be an issue in our application process that our joint sponsor is laid off from the job temporarily due to COVID19. But will start work soon after all this is over. Gimme your thoughts! Thanks
  8. I am in the NVC process and pretty much all my documents have been accepted except for the police certificate! My husband, who we got the police certificate for, is from NEW ZEALAND and they sent the police certificate straight to the embassy, so we don't receive anything but an email confirming the police have sent the info to the embassy. So my question is WHAT IN THE WORLD DO I UPLOAD?? I read somewhere that they uploaded the confirmation email, I tried that and it didn't work. I have absolutely no idea what to do. Any help is appreciated!
  9. 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!!
  10. My case was approved by the USCIS on March 26th, and I still haven’t heard back from the NVC that they’ve received it and you can’t contact them by phone. Is this normal? Are they still operating
  11. Curious to see has anybody recently had their I-129F case shipped by NVC to consulate? Are they still shipping cases due to covid-19. I have my case number and waiting to see it change to transit😀 thanks guys!!
  12. Hi everyone, My wife applied for my IR1/CR1 visa last year. Our current stage is, NVC cleared all the documents on Nov-12-2019, and said they are working with US Embassy Islamabad to schedule my visa interview. Its been 26 days now, but still I have not received any interview date from NVC/US Embassy Islamabad PK. Can you all please share your recent experience, what is the current interview wait times US Embassy Islamabad PK.?
  13. Hi, it's my first post. I'm applying for an IR-1 visa. I'm German, living in France and my wife (Petitioner) is an American citizen. I'm at the stage where I have to upload my civil documents. I'm also uploading my wife's Affidavit of Support (AOS), her tax return, and 1099s. Problem with the website Uploading works, since their tech issues were resolved early May, 2020. The documents show up as "Uploaded" 🙂 But here's the problem: On the main page it says (for a week now) "Not Submitted" 😮 Under supplemental documents I had uploaded additional 1099s. But as required documents they had only requested the tax return and the AOS (form I-864) so in theory nothing should have been missing. The more detailed message reads "At least one required document has not been uploaded to your case and/or has not been submitted for review." Can somebody on this forum enlighten me as to why I'm seeing "Not Submitted" here? Thanks in advance, Martin

  16. Hi everyone, I have a question, I think it's better to ask than to make a mistake. I'm at the NVC stage and I'm uploading all the documents.... With that being said, I am going to use the form I-864ez, also I have the letter of the employer.... should I upload them separately or together? Thank you!

  19. Has anyone tried requesting an expedite as of late? or have experience expediting via Montreal? we are the NVC stage, and we submitted ours on the 27th of April and received and email yesterday saying they will be reviewing it. Wondering how much work is actually being done at the consulate right now, or how long it usually takes..
  20. Hi, Is there anything new about NVC case number? I have approval from USCIS from 23-March and I have not received an email from them,Thank You
  21. Good afternoon. I've been trying to figure out this on my own but i'm really struggling to find the correct path. if anyone see this and could share a light i would really appreciate. My husband is USC and we had our I130 approved and sent to NVC in the beginning of april. Because of all that it's going on right now we are kinda stuck on our documents. He file his 2019 taxes but didn't for the previous years for no specific reason. We know he has to do it but my question is: should we go ahead and submit the documents with the current year only, since it's the only required by NVC? His income is not enough to be the only sponsor so his dad is joining us and he have all the taxes filled for previous years. Im worried because of this 60 days EO. unfortunately we cant file the taxes immediately since he doesn't have the previous w2's and the IRS website doesn't recognize his student loan account number, so can't check online. He can't order by mail also since they are not doing it because of the Covid 19. in case we send the files with just his current year taxes and they send us a rfe, how long do we have to respond?
  22. HI, my U.S spouse visa filing is on working. my lawyer had submitted only my urdu marriage certificate and its translation (into English) but NVC rejected that document.

Total 3 documents merge into one PDF file. i just wanted to confirm that is it right way to submit? and is it what they want? please guide me. Thank You Best,

  24. Hey everyone, so I just received an email. However, I cannot open the messages. It says; need document, police certificate and NVC feedback. When I look at our documents they’ve all been approved, and my police certificate was approved with the follow note; This explanation has been accepted for NVC purposes. However, when you are able to obtain this document, you will need to upload this document under other/additional documents and present the original to the consular office. does this mean I still need to wait And submit my PCC before it can be sent for an interview? we’re going to try and call but idk how long that will take.. TIA
  25. Hi everyone! I just want to have a clear thoughys about my dilemma. We have received a welcome email from NVC with instructions to pay fees and submit docs. I noticed that my application was classified as CR1. I have read from forums that CR1 is for couples who are married less than 2 years. IR1 is for couples who have been married for 2 years and above. My situation is, our marriage will be 2 years by next month. In the middle of all the petition procedures. Is the 2 years of marriage based on the time we have submitted our petition or by the time that the Principal Applicant entered the USA? Is the visa class be updated or we will retain as CR 1 even if we celebrate the 2 years of marriage? Any thoughts please. I hope all of you are safe and healthy!
