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 https://usembassy.gov.
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 https://ceac.state.gov/iv
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 https://ceac.state.gov/iv to do so.
Note: Responses to inquiries through the NVC Public Inquiry form will come from TSGSystem@tsg.state.gov. Please do not send inquiries directly to that address as they will not be received by the National Visa Center. Inquiries must be sent using the Public Inquiry form located at: https://nvc.state.gov/inquiry
Date of Birth formatting: please note that the date of birth on this form must be submitted following the (dd/Month/yyyy) format. For example: 01/June/1990.
