Public Inquiry Form

Before submitting an inquiry, please note:

The U.S. Embassy or Consulate tells NVC which dates they are holding interviews. NVC fills these appointments on a first-in, first-out basis and cannot predict when an interview will be scheduled.

Visa interviews at many U.S. Embassies and Consulates have been delayed because of the global COVID-19 outbreak. For the most up-to-date information about any U.S. Embassy or Consulate's operating status, please visit their website at

Once complete, your case will remain at NVC until an appointment is scheduled, at which time we will send it to the appropriate U.S. Embassy or Consulate. We will notify the applicant, petitioner, and attorney (if applicable) when an appointment is scheduled.

For the most up-to-date case status, log into the Consular Electronic Application Center (CEAC) at

To update the last contact date for cases actively processing at NVC, please continue to pay fees and submit the required documents. You can access to do so.
