“The National Visa Center keeps asking for the same documents. I submitted all the docs, with the I-130 which is approved. What’s going on at the NVC?”
A couple things could be at play here with the National Visa Center stage they’ve switched over to electronic document processing. That means you have to scan and upload the documents now. We’ve had experience with this here at RapidVisa, and if your format is not exactly correct they reject the documents. So you may have to submit them over and over and over.
If its something that the NVC actually received and then they are requesting it, that could mean that there is a problem with the actual document you submitted. An example: A lot of birth certificates from foreign countries are called “short forms” meaning they do not the parents names listed or both parents, but on a birth certificate you have to submit the “long form”.
It’s important to see what the actual RFE is requesting. Usually, they’ll have a detailed checklist of everything you’ll need. You can also take a look at the reciprocity schedule online with the U.S. Department of State. They list documents by country and they give you the requirements for that country. The USCIS and National Visa Center will follow the standards of the foreign countries. .
