National Visa Center No Longer Collects Original Civil Documents

As of November 12, 2014, immigrant visa applicants at non-electronic processing posts will be instructed to submit photocopies of their civil documents by mail to the National Visa Center (NVC). When the appointment is scheduled, NVC will instruct applicants to bring their original documents to the interview for evaluation and final case processing. Original Affidavit of Support forms must still be submitted to NVC for initial evaluation. Applicants at designated electronic processing posts will continue to submit their documents via email.
