To address critical backlogs, the National Visa Center (NVC) has suspended our public inquiry telephone line effective May 23, 2022. We apologize for any inconvenience. The suspension of public inquiry telephone lines will not impede any essential functions of NVC and individuals will still be able to contact us using the methods identified below and find information regarding common IV and NIV inquiries on our Helpful Hints pages.
Tips for interacting with NVC:
Do not submit repeat inquiries. Multiple inquiries on a single topic will delay our ability to respond. Visit https://nvc.state.gov/timeframes to check our inquiry processing and case processing dates. Do not submit a follow-up inquiry while your case is within those timeframes.
