Begin National Visa Center (NVC) Processing
Welcome to the homepage of the National Visa Center (NVC). You have come to this page because you received a letter or email from NVC directing you here after NVC received your approved petition from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Please complete Steps 1-6 below to complete pre-processing of your immigrant visa application. These steps are necessary before NVC can schedule your visa interview at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate overseas. If you have not been directed to this page by letter or email from NVC, you will find general information about the immigrant visa process here.
Please make sure NVC has a working e-mail address for at least one party on your case. (A case party is the petitioner, beneficiary, or agent/attorney.) This allows NVC to e-mail you information and instructions rather than send them via traditional mail, which means you will receive items like NVC’s responses to submitted documents and notice of your visa interview appointment more quickly. If you need to add, update, or change your contact information at any time, please call 1-603-334-0700 or use our online inquiry form. Remember that each time you contact NVC, you’ll need to provide your case number, petitioner’s full name, and the beneficiary’s full name and date of birth.
