The U.S. State Department announced yesterday that immigrant visa applicants at non-electronic processing posts are no longer required to submit originals of civil documents anymore. Instead applicants must submit photocopies of their civil documents by mail to the National Visa Center (NVC). When the appointment is scheduled, applicants will need to bring their original documents to the interview. Applicants at designated electronic processing posts will continue to submit their documents via e-mail.
