help for after NOA2 approval..now what??

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hey everyone..

well there seems to be a ton of people getting approvals..so that's awesome..me and my fiancee were like 'NOW WHAT!' we waited like 6months and get approval..so now what? (seems a lot of people are posting the same questions) well I found this site..it has a good listing of the next steps.


Looks there's some forms that should be brought by the benefitor (fiancee) to the embassy for the interview..I think what VJ says is good..and this site lists some other forms to bring...so maybe between the two sites...it'll make the interview a lot easier:

Here's quick summary:

1. Processing center sends approved (NOA2) case to NVC.

2. NVC (national visa center) does a security check then assigns a case number and sends to your fiancee's embassy. Takes about 2-4 weeks..

3. Fiancee's US embassy receives case number and info..

4. interview is set up and fiancee will receive the 'brown envelope' that she CANNOT open..forms she should bring to the interview are listed on that site (..they can be filled out before the interview but they have to be SIGNED in front of the embassy officers.

Everyone reading this, be forewarned, each embassy/consulate has slighty different polices about.....well....everything. So while this gives a good general idea, it's best to click on the "Embassy Info" link up top and see what your individual embassy expects and requires.

Other than that, good job!

Good luck everyone!
