    Dear JC
    Congratulations, we are all happy for you. good luck with the interview. I do not have that experience , but in the interview time try to be positive about living in america on your own foot without depending on others . that is very important for them.
    But Can I ask you a question. we have paid the money ( 70 dollars for the affidavit of support) and 400 dollars for each applicant. then we printed the receipt and cover sheet. Do I have to download the relevant forms myself and then send them py post or are they going to send me the related forms for filling out? because in one section they said wait for the authorization from NVC but in the coversheets it says follow the instructions about the procedures. we really do not know what to do.
    And how long it took from when you received the agent form to getting the appontment ?
    I really appreciate your reply.
    Rose

    TO ALL: The electronic procedure is only eligible for people from CHINA and about 2, 3 other countries, but I hear that some people from other countries also receive forms through email. Can anybody give me some information on it?

  11. Rose
    June 28th, 2009 at 17:34 | #11

    Dear Pooyan,
    thanks for the link, I am really worried about my son because I sent the NVC an e-mail last month and I received two different replies, apparently by two different people. one said your case in under consideration of the Child Act( which allows the child to enter the US after their 21st birthday because the pending time was long) and in other email, they said they can not do anything now because the visa is not available for us yet. By the way my son is now 21 years and a few days! and might be interesting to you that his name is Pouya.
    Thanks again for your concern and I hope he can get the visa. I think I have to write a letter to NVC and explain everything .
    Did you have a contact with them by phone or e-mail about your concern that they might not have your email address?
    Good luck
    Rose

    Dear Carlos Brown
    we have paid both affidavit fee and applicant fee on line and received the receipts on line too. Do you mean we do not have to wait for NVC to contact us for sending the documents?
    I have printed all forms and filled them already and my mum too filled the affidavit of support form but we are not sure when to post them to NVC. I appreciate your reply

    Dear Rose,

    that is right. Fill the forms and send it to the NVC with the cover sheet. It took like 6 months the whole process! Well I am very positive and a I guess they will see it at the interview, besides my wife and me are both professionals and looking forward to work a lot in the US.. so we are defenitely independent. Thanks for your words! Tomorrow I will post my interview experience for everyone!

    Best of luck to all!

    HELLO JC, I have a question re:DS230 form, what did you write in number 14? Spouse’s Maiden or Family Name. is it maiden name of your wife or your surname? im confuse about this.

    Hello Rose… thanks for the emails…

    @tutubear
    Tutubear, how is that possible? Your PD is Nov 13th and it is not current yet. Well, it is good to know that NVC may even go beyond announced PDs and process applications. Good luck with the interview.

  19. Rose
    June 30th, 2009 at 15:26 | #19

    thanks Carlos Brown and JC for your information. I am going to send them the documents as soon as my police record comes.
    I called the NVC last night and they also said that becuse we paid online there will be no package by post and we have to download the forms. and about my son I also asked and he said that because at the moment the visa is available to people whose priority date is OCT 22, and for me it is not ready yet, I have to wait and as soon as I see that in the website that it is available, I have to write a letter and ask them to consider my son’s case as the Child Act and he also said it is not something automatic, we have to write to them a letter.
    He said hopefully it will be availabe in one month time but no guarantee.
    Hope everthing goes well for all and I know everybody is waiting to hear from JC.
    I will be in touch
    Rose

    Dear all, well I just came back from interview.. and a hate to say I am almost finished.. rather than.. I’m done!

    Everything went well at the embassy, once the agent called my name, me and my wife showed up at the window and the agent (Venezuelan) started asking for our medical exams, pictures and asked some questions about previous trips to the US. Then he delivers the swear statement wich we had to read and understand.. then he told us to wait for our call.. we waited for 15 minutes and another agent (american) called my name in another window.. he asked us when we got married, about our previous trips, and asked us to scan our fingers and sign the DS Forms… the he asked.. do you have any evidence of your marriage.. I answer.. well besaides our marrieage certoficates and our rings.. we have nothing else.. We people.. you have to bring marriage proofs such as pictures, joint accounts or anything to give them proof that you are really married.. but my surprise is that I was never ever told we had to bring this evidence to the interview…

    Well, finally he gave us back our passports and told us to go next monday to bring evidence of marriage to complete the process!

    So this journey continues! Hopefully next monday we will leave the embassy with a big smile in our faces!

    Keep you posted!

    Greetings to all!

    July 1st, 2009 at 00:39 | #23

    Hi Carlos,

    go to the immigrant web page http://www.ImmigrantVisas.state.gov, There you will find all the documentation you need to enclose along with your DS230 forms. Remember to send basically your marriage certificate, Police records, birth certificates, children certificates (all legalized by your country and transalated)I know it seems complicated, but it is not that much really.. just take your time to get everything.

    Rose: next week I’ll post with the good news!

    Good luck to all!!

    JC I also cried of joy and happiness for you. It’s great man, it’s just great. Although it’s difficult to realize you and feel the happiness you got at the embassy, I feel how you felt. God is great. Just have fun. When you wait for something for a long time, then you can feel the joy and happiness. I’m so excited about you.

    @JC
    Hello JC! How true that your visa had been approved after a long wait of nine years. What is then your F3 priority date? I was petitioned by my Father who is a US citizen last May of 1993. And our petioned was approved by the TIVPC and given a Priority Date May 12, 1993 under F3, and was forwarded to the NVC. It’s more than 17 years already from the day of approval. How come that you had been given a Visa after only 9 years of waiting? Please tell us what magic did you do.
