What To Do If You Have Not Received Welcome Letter From Nvc Yet?

We Understand An Immigration Better

What is Welcome Letter?

After getting an approval for your petition, USCIS transfer your case for further processing to the Department of State's National Visa Centre (NVC). As NVC receive your petition from USCIS the first step they take is the creation of your case in their system. Once this is done, NVC send a welcome Letter by e-mail or physical mail.

An applicant has to wait until his / her priority date is current. The NVC will start its processing six to 12 months before your priority date is expected to be current by sending you a welcome letter. While in the case of “immediate relative,” NVCsends welcome letter shortly after it gets file from USCIS.

The welcome letter comprises fee invoices, case number, and the invoice number. These numbers are required to apply for your visa. Once you get the welcome letter, you’re ready to start applying for your immigrant visa.
