The NVC should have already sent out a case number along with fee bills (Invoice) for $492. If not, call 603-334-0700 to find out what the case number is and to get the invoice number. You then pay the fees online and email NVC copies of documents (I-864, copy of his passport, birth certificate and marriage certificate) and he completes the DS-260 form online. Once all documents are considered complete, NVC will schedule the appointment. From case completion until the initial interview in Ciudad Juarez is typically about 2 months.
