Packets 1, 2, 3...

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm confused when people say they've received "Packet 3" from NVC. What's included in this packet? What was in packets 1 and 2?

I've paid both the AOS fee and IV fee. I'm guessing packet #2 is the Affidavit of Support and packet #3 is the DS-230?

Thanks,

Phong

Yes, you will need to send them and I-864 packet and DS 230 packet. Then NVC will review them, complete the case and then send it to the Embassy. The Embassy will mail the beneficiary the detailed interview instructions.


I-130 Timeline with USCIS:

It took 92 days for I-130 to get approved from the filing date

NVC Process of I-130:

It took 78 days to complete the NVC process

Interview Process at The U.S. Embassy

Interview took 223 days from the I-130 filing date. Immigrant Visa was issued right after the interview
