NVC to Cease Collecting Original Civil Documents
The National Visa Center (NVC) will cease collecting original civil documents in support of immigrant visa (IV) applications as of November 12, 2014. Most applicants will be required to submit photocopies of supporting documents (such as birth, marriage, and police certificates) and will be instructed to take their original documents to their interviews for review. This does not include Affidavit of Support forms, which petitioners will still submit to NVC for initial evaluation.
This provides respite to several individuals who would otherwise have to send original documents, with a risk of their loss in mail. Feel free to contact attorneys at Brenman Immigration Law Firm by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling us at (919) 932-4593 if you have any questions regarding this process.
