No more original documents for the NVC!

The National Visa Center (NVC) has recently announced that they no longer require immigrant visa applicants to submit original civil documents. This comes as a relief for many of our clients, who were understandably nervous about submitting original documents, many of which could not be replaced, by mail (FedEx) to the NVC. It also reduces the amount of time required to gather the documents, as many times the documents had to be couriered to the US from overseas.

Keep in mind that the NVC still requires certified translations for all documents not in English.

We are thrilled that this seemingly small change will make the process easier for our clients sponsoring family members living overseas.

Do you need help sponsoring a family member for permanent residence? Contact our office today to find out how we can streamline the process and help reunite your family! Call 804-396-3412 or email us at info@sumnerimmigration.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
