We received the following email from NVC this morning:
The National Visa Center (NVC) received your documents on 06-OCT-14.
We are currently receiving an increased number of approved petitions from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. As a result, we are experiencing increased review times for documents received.
We expect it will be at least 60 days from the date we received your mail before we complete the review of your documents. We will notify you when we review your documents.
We are working to reduce these processing times and we appreciate your patience.
Because of these increased document review times it is even more important to make sure that you submit all of the documents required by NVC. Missing documents will extend the document review phase to at least four months. If you have any questions about which documents are required please ask your attorney, or if filing pro se please check both the documents you received from the NVC and the reciprocity schedule for the country of origin.
If you would like our help, please call my office at 513-791-1673 and we will schedule a time to discuss what is needed.
