National Visa Center (NVC)

Steps to Take After Receiving Your Spouse Visa Interview Notice From the NVC

The National Visa Center (NVC) is the agency responsible for scheduling spouse visa interviews on behalf of most U.S. Embassies and Consulates. The NVC also sends immigrant visa case files, containing the spouse visa petition and all forms and documents submitted by or on behalf of the foreign national spouse, to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate where the foreign national spouse will be interviewed. Once you receive notice from the NVC that your spouse visa interview has been scheduled, the foreign national spouse must take the following steps:

  1. Carefully Review the letter and interview notice sent by the NVC noting the date, time, and location of your spouse visa interview.
  2. Schedule and Attend a Medical Examination with a consulate-approved panel physician. A list of approved panel physicians is typically posted on the consulate’s website.
  3. Confirm what Original Documents will be required for your interview and that they will be  available at the time of the spouse visa interview. Documents submitted to the NVC in advance will be forwarded to the U.S. consular officer conducting your spouse visa interview.
  4. Obtain the required number of 2″ x 2″ passport-type photos. (Please take care to comply with the Dept. of State photo guidelines, posted at the travel.state.gov website.)
  5. Review all documents and spouse visa interview instructions received from the NVC and available from your spouse visa attorney.
