How long does nvc take to review resubmitted documents ?
5 attorney answers
They should not take longer than 30 days. You should follow up with them if it is longer than that.
The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
It is not uncommon for NVC to take a couple of months to review re-submitted documentation.
Is my answer "BEST ANSWER" and/or "HELPFUL"? If so, please acknowledge and mark it so. Mr. Smith has 25 years of successful U.S. immigration law experience with cases just like yours. Still, his response is general in nature, as all the facts are unknown to him, and cannot be construed as legal advice. Please retain immigration counsel to analyze your particular situation in order to receive specific advice. Specific answers requires knowledge of all the pertinent facts of your case. Any answers offered by Mr. Smith on Avvo are of a general nature only, and does not create an attorney-client relationship.

As my colleagues stated previously, NVC is seeing a large backlog. I have seen cases pending for a year after all the required documents are received. You should consult with an attorney in your area for assistance.

Because of the lockdown and the fact that the US Consulate in Morocco is closed ... the NVC is in no rush to process papers.
I predict several months before you hear from them.
