A DOS cable authorizes consular posts to process immigrant visa cases where an adjustment of status applicant has filed Form I-824 asking that notification of the approval of an I-140 or I-130 be forwarded to the National Visa Center (NVC) to begin visa processing. The cable instructs posts that they do not need to wait for the I-824 to be approved in order to begin processing the case, provided certain conditions are met.
