For us we had to wait for our invoice and then pay prior to submitting anything to the NVC but, when you use an attorney the steps and forms are sometimes slightly different so I don't want to advise you incorrectly. There are AWESOME guides on visajourney.com that tell you exactly what documents and forms you need to do.

Also the Visajourney site is a bit difficult to navigate at first. Please let me know if you need any help finding any info on there. There are specific forums for SPOUSE visa make sure you are on the IR1/CR1 forums because if you accidentally go to the fiance visa forums, you will get wrong information. There are also guides for each process at the top of the page.

Thank you TunisianYankee, i think i'm figuring it out now, but what make it frustrating, is them being really slow. and they says it has been going slow since their shutdown last year !!!

Yes the NVC is very slow. That's why it's SOOO important that we get it right the first time. If you get one little thing wrong when you submit your package to them, they'll send you a check list and you'll have to resubmit and wait another 50-60 days. My husband and I were SOOO nervous waiting for our NVC approval just praying we didn't get a checklist.

We got our NOA2 on July 17th and didn't get our invoice until August 18th. Then we lost a month of time because our package wasn't ready. That was our fault. We sent the package on September 18th and our interview is finally scheduled on January 8th So from the time of our NOA2 to our interview is almost six months. BUT one of those months is our fault so it would have been five months if we were prepared.

Hello TunisianYankee, I Hope you are Doin well,
i have a question please,if you have an idea about,
Is it possible that i pay the IV fee from here in Tunisia ?
TunisianYankee
TunisianYankee
My husband wanted to pay the fee from Tunisia too. If there is a way to do that, WE couldn't figure it out.. We asked our attorney too and she said no it has to be paid by check or using the CEAC online system which is much faster.

i think yesterday it was your interview date at the embassy, i hope and pray that it went very well for you :)
well about my case, i have an international credit that i can pay with euros ,dinars or dollars could that be possible then?
TunisianYankee
TunisianYankee
No, they do it via ACH from a checking or savings account. We went yesterday and were turned away because the guards were on strike so nobody could get inside. They told us to come back the same time tomorrow. So we went back today and waited four hours for our turn and then they told us that they didn't receive our case from the NVC!!!! So now we have to wait for them to find out case

UGH, how could it happen, i'm sure that must sucks !!! :(
TunisianYankee

SUCKS BIGTIME lol. They tried just telling my husband "woopsie, your case isn't here, we'll contact you to reschedule when it arrives" They said this to at LEAST three people before us and the people just left quietly... Well NO WAY I was going to go quietly!!! Finally the Consul General came to speak with me and she gave me her number and told me she'd take care of it and call me on monday.

And they tried blaming the NVC saying that they didn't send the paperwork and I said told them that no, the paperwork was sent by the NVC on December 12 delivered by DHL on the 17th and I have the tracking number confirmation of that. Thanks to VISAJOURNEY.com for showing me how to find out the DHL tracking number to track your package to the embassy!

Hi, Yes good news, They have found our case and we have my husband's interview tomorrow morning at the US Embassy in Tunis. We are very fortunate to have the support of both of our families and have Muslims, Christians, Mormons, and Jews praying for us on three different continents. Insha'Allah all will go well for us.
