Many members are having success in emailing the NVC to choose their agent instead of sending in the DS-3032 via regular mail. Sometimes NVC sends an automated response upon receiving the e-mail but many times this feature does not work.
NVC takes from a few days to 2 weeks to send an email confirming receipt of the DS-3032.
Have your foreign spouse (beneficiary) send an email to NVCINQUIRY@state.gov with the following contents:
DS-3032 Email Template
Subject: <NVC Case Number - Beneficiaries Name>

Per the DS-3032 (Choice of Address and Agent for Immigrant Visa Applicants), I would like to appoint my <Husband/Wife> as my agent of choice to receive all future correspondence from the U.S. Department of State. <His/Her> contact information is provided below:

All mail from the U.S. Department of State concerning my immigrant visa should be sent to the address above.
