What is the National Visa Center?

Free Consultation »

Once the Immigrant Petition is approved by the USCIS, the Immigrant Petition is forwarded to the National Visa Center (NVC). The NVC performs a background check of the foreign worker, collects immigrant visa fees and documents, processes the immigrant visa application and provides instruction regarding the interview and the required medical examination. After processing is complete, the NVC schedules an interview and forwards the petition, immigrant visa application and documents to the United States embassy or consulate nearest the foreign worker’s foreign residence.
