  • Approved!! Now what?

    The USCIS has approved my I-130 petition to allow my wife to come to the US from Italy! We have been waiting since last November....

    Now...will she be notified in Italy for her interview and medical exam?

      Next the approved I-130 will be forwarded to the National Visa Center (NVC). After that:

      What Does the National Visa Center Do?

      After a Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office in the United States approves the petition, it sends the petition to the National Visa Center (NVC). NVC does the following:

      Assigns a case number

      Sends Form DS-3032 Choice of Address and Agent (../visa/frvi_forms.html ) to the applicant (your spouse). The applicant selects an agent. The agent can be anyone, including the applicant. The NVC will mail all future letters (except for the Affidavit of Support, Form I-864) about processing the immigrant visa case to the agent. Make sure the postal address is correct and is kept up-to-date.

      Sends the bill for the Form I-864 Affidavit of Support processing to the petitioner

      Sends the Form I-864, Affidavit of Support to the petitioner after the petitioner pays the I-864 processing fee

      Sends the bill for immigrant visa (IV) processing fee to the agent after the applicant sends form DS-3032 Choice of Address and Agent, to the NVC

      Sends an instruction package to the agent after the agent pays the immigrant visa application processing fee, form DS-230

      Reviews information for technical correctness and completeness.

      Sends the petition to the embassy or consulate where the applicant will apply for a visa when the case file is complete

      Note: It is important to follow instructions from the NVC carefully. Send the NVC only those things that it asks for.

      This whole process from the NVC receiving approved I-130 and the interview date set up might takes 2-5 months if you prompt in your correspondence with the NVC.

      Cheers.
