Does emailing the NVC or the Embassy every day speed things up?
Hi, I’m Jim Hacking, immigration lawyer practicing law throughout the United States out of our office here in St. Louis, Missouri.
If you are a long time subscriber to our email newsletter or if you regularly watch our videos, you know that I do not put much stock in the communications from the National Visa Center or from the U.S. Embassies abroad.
And we got a question in our YouTube comments the other day. “Well, if I keep emailing them every day, will that help make things happen?” And the fact of the matter is they have all these filters.
So I’m convinced that these emails that you send through the embassy portal, that they go into this big vat of unread emails and that they have all these filters set up so that your emails never have any impact on your case.
You can email people every day. You can call the embassy. If you try, it generally doesn’t work, but emailing them every day, if it does work, it’s just going to annoy them.
And if it doesn’t work, it’s just a waste of time. So we would really encourage you to not bang your head against the wall. We want people to go through this process as calmly as possible. And I know it’s frustrating.
I know people’s lives are at issue, but at the end of the day, you can’t think that emailing them through their portal is going to work. They have all these ways of keeping that from ever reaching the person who’s handling your case.
So it’s most likely a waste of time, but at the end of the day, even if it isn’t a waste of time, then it’s just annoying. So it’s not going to impact your case. It’s not going to help your case.
The only thing that’s going to help move your case is to sue them. So emailing them every day, logging into the portal, banging your head against the wall. None of that stuff’s going to work. The only thing that’s going to work is to sue them.
So if you have questions about this, give us a call at 314-961-8200. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to join us in our Facebook group.
