In July some visa applicants received e-mails from the National Visa Center (NVC) indicating that proceedings to terminate their immigrant visa application would commence, or that the application was being terminated for failure to contact the NVC within one year of notification of the availability of a visa, even when the individual or the attorney contacted the NVC within the one-year period. The NVC has since advised that is correcting the issue and is sending affected applicants a follow-up e-mail to let them know that their case is still in process, and that they should disregard the e-mail previously received.  Further clarification on the best process for reopening an erroneously terminated application is expected. A similar issue arose last year.
