Dear CFL Members,

The National Visa Center (NVC) has started a new pilot program of electronically processing visa petitions. Under this program all documents related to your case will be sent to Guangzhou electronically, rather than by mail. This should greatly improve the speed and efficiency of visa processing by avoiding delays due to postal service delivery.

The electronic processing option is available only for the U.S. Consulate Guangzhou, China and will initially be available only to immediate relatives of U.S. citizens over the age of 21 years (visa categories IR-1, IR-2, CR-1, CR-2, and IR-5).

If you have heard from the NVC and have chosen to participate in electronic processing you should not mail any physical paper documents to NVC. Doing so will result in a delay in the processing of your case. NVC will send instructions to all e-mail addresses you provided. Please follow all instructions from NVC for submitting documents electronically and bring the original documents to the interview with you.

If your case is being processed through the electronic pilot project, your case number should begin with GZO.

If your case is not being processed electronically, your case number should begin with GUZ.

For further information regarding this program, please e-mail the NVC at NVCInquiry@state.gov or call the NVC at (603) 334-0700. Customer Service Representatives are available Monday through Friday from 7:30am ¨C midnight EST. You must have a touchtone phone to use this service.

Please Note: The NVC electronic processing project for K visa (fianc¨¦e/spouse non-immigrant visa), has different procedures. For these cases, although the petitions are loaded electronically, the U.S. Consulate in Guangzhou still contacts visa beneficiaries to provide more documents prior to interview scheduling.

If you are a K visa applicant and you have opted in for electronic processing, you will still have to wait for paper Instructions via mail from the Consulate.

Thank you,

U.S. Consulate Guangzhou, China

I'll ask'em a question 1st, if they don't pull up and run then everyone else chime in ;)

Umm Mr.USCONGUZ or Ms.USCONGUZ as the case may be

Is there any discussions or plans to get the K-1 and K-3's on the same program? If so is there a time frame we can start looking foward too?

One other thing we realy would like to see more comments/participation from you guys on CFL even in say an
unofficial capacity.

Hey shadeOgray, I couldn't agree more. I feel my K-1 wife is pretty close to an "immediate relative".
