NVC Case Complete
Are you really itching to find out as soon as possible when you have NVC Case Complete Status for your IR-1/CR-1 Spousal Visa application? Indeed, I bet you are. In the same way, we were very eager to know.
NVC Case Complete status brings much excitement in the visa application process. Why? For the simple reason, NVC case complete means that your case moves now to the embassy phase. In fact, you can now see and taste the end nearing.
Secret Way to Determine NVC Case Complete
On the subject of finding out as soon as possible, do you want to know a secret? In particular, do you want to know a secret way of finding out your NVC case complete status before NVC informs you by text, email or letter? As a matter of fact, I bet you do.
In particular, here is the way to find out:
- Firstly, check your case status through CEAC frequently after sending in your AOS and IV package.
- Remember when you paid your AOS fee on-line? Consequently, the AOS Fee on CEAS changed to “Paid”.
- Next, watch the status of the AOS Fee on CEAS.
- In the event that the AOS fee status changes from “PAID” to “N/A”, then you most likely have “NVC Case Complete”.
Disclaimer: This method is specifically not a 100% guaranty. However, most people confirm that they have NVC case complete when the AOS Fee changes from “Paid” to “N/A”. Also, remember, this is only for IR-1/CR-1 Spousal Visa cases, not K-1 Fiance(e) Visa cases.

What Happens After NVC Case Complete
- After NVC case complete, the CEAS case tracker will soon change from “At NVC” to “Case Complete”.
- Subsequently, your case is put in a queue to get an interview date scheduled at the US Embassy or consulate of your foreign spouse.
- After the interview is scheduled with the embassy, NVC sends your case to the embassy. This can take 1-2 weeks after NVC Case Complete and sometimes longer. The CEAS case tracker changes from “Case complete” to “In-Transit”.
- NVC sends you, your petitioner, and your agent/attorney (if applicable) an email or letter. The letter or email notes your embassy interview appointment date and time. Specifically, bring the appointment letter to your embassy interview.
- In the end, the case status will then change to “Ready”. This means that the embassy or consulate has received your application and they are “ready” for your interview.
