NVC case number

Recommended Posts

how does NVC case numbers usually start/begin? Like from USCIS it's WAC and the like, what about NVC case number for I129/fiancee? thanks!

The three letters are an abbreviation for the overseas consulate that will process the immigrant visa case (for example, KGN for Kingston (Jamaica). It is different from the assigned USCIS case number. The NVC case number tells when it was created / assigned by the NVC.

A site you can look at to get a more detailed explanation.

Case Number: The National Visa Center (NVC) gives each immigrant petition a case number. This number has three letters followed by ten digits (numbers). The three letters are an abbreviation for the overseas embassy or consulate that will process the immigrant visa case (for example, GUZ for Guangzhou, CDJ for Ciudad Juarez).

The digits tell us exactly when NVC created the case. For example a case with the number MNL2001747003 would be a case assigned to the U.S. Embassy in Manila. 2001 is the year in which NVC received the case from the USCIS (formerly INS). The Julian date is 747 plus 500, so this case was created on September 4, 2001, the 247th day of the year. The 003 shows that it was the third case created for Manila on that day. This case number is not the same as the USCIS receipt number, which is written on the Notice of Action, Form I-797, from the USCIS. A consular section abroad cannot find a case if all you have is the USCIS receipt number.

thank u very much for the detailed info...we just received the NOA2, how do we know our new case number? how long will it take?

You will need to call the NVC to get the information. 1 603 334 0700. speak with the agent or in the Automated system. The case will be transfered to the NVC - i would say it may take 7-30 days.

Not to WORRY. You will get the change to update your address at the next phase that you are entering.
