National Visa Center No Longer Collecting Original Civil Documents

by Immigration Attorney Osas Iyamu on November 19, 2014
Find me on:

The National Visa Center (NVC) has ceased collecting original civil documents in support of immigrant visa (IV) applications as of November 12, 2014.

Applicants will be required to submit photocopies of supporting documents (such as birth, marriage, and police certificates) and will be instructed to take their original documents to their interviews for review at the designated US Embassy.

This however, does not include the Affidavit of Support forms, which petitioners will still submit to NVC for Initial evaluation.

New Instructions to Applicants

After applicants and petitioners collect the Affidavit of Support form(s), financial evidence,
and supporting civil documents, they are instructed to submit all of the documents to NVC.
As of November 12, 2014, applicants at non-electronic processing posts are required to submit Photocopies of their civil documents by mail to NVC. NVC will review the copies and, when the case is documentarily complete, will place the copies into the file, which will be sent to the Embassy or consular post.
When the appointment is scheduled, NVC will instruct applicants to take their original documents to the interview for evaluation and final case processing. Original Affidavit of Support forms will still be submitted to NVC for initial evaluation.
Applicants at designated electronic processing posts will continue to submit their documents via email.
NVC anticipates this change will maintain the integrity of the IV process, reduce customer
wait times, and improve customer experience.
