How Long Does NOA1 Take?

16 posts in this topic Register to Ask a Question

Did anyone else here have to wait for their NOA1? I sent in the form for a text or email, but nothing..

I haven't gotten the return receipt either. Now I'm worried, even though I checked the address several times.

Everyone seems to have gotten some kind of notification within 3 days, is there anyone else whose notification took longer?

Thanks.

Mine took about a week. Be patient, you'll get it :yes:

(and yes, I realize you're applying for a K1 vs my CR-1, but the NOA1 is the same thing, just them letting you know they received your application)

Dont worry my NOA1 took a while, i sent my packet off 10/5, they got it 10/7 but i didnt get a notification till the 18th.. and the letter receipt via mail was received couple days later, and the receipt on the letter was dated 10/11.... so give it a bit, when did you send yours off????

When did you send it in, and did you get a USPS or courier tracking number? My fiance sent our I-129F on Friday (Oct 21st), checked USPS tracker, it got to the Dallas Lockbox Sunday night(Oct 23rd) and he got the email NOA1 last night (Oct 26th).

I wouldn't worry, I've been looking at peoples timelines and some people have waited 9+ days for their NOA1. I know you want to know it's safe, it should turn up soon.

I sent mine in on Friday from CA, so it should only take like two days to get there.

When you say they got it the 7th, you mean that's when they dated the return receipt or you found out later that's when they got it?

I'm sure tons of people are paranoid with this!! Thanks for your responses, everyone....

i sent mine from california as well, i had the tracking receipt, so that way i can track it as it gets to chicago... but no worries it will get there, and you will get your NOA1... after that thats when the waiting begins lol

How long has it been and has your check been cashed ?

My check has not been cashed.

The tracking receipt says they received it early on Tuesday morning. That is a good sign, right? So hopefully it will only take a few days. It's just weird that some would be notified in one day and others take weeks. Oh well, it is the government after all, what can you do? :)

By the way, for those who asked, it was sent USPS return receipt requested, but not expedited.
