What is the National Visa Center?

Free Consultation »

Once the relative petition is approved by the USCIS, the relative petition is forwarded to the National Visa Center (NVC). The NVC performs a background check of your foreign relative, collects immigrant visa and affidavit of support 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 your foreign relative’s foreign residence.
