i am using receipt number starting from Eac to check status.....

That would only tell you what's happening when you first filed... ours began with WAC... so you're looking at very old news...

IS this the same number you use to check your case at the embassy/DOS? Doesn't your case number when you call them begin with ISL?

you are after your interview and would be using your ISL number now.. i don't think anything on the USCIS site would show the info currently going on at the embassy. Altho I could be wrong... but if so you would need to use the number the embassy is using and the one you use to call and check with DOS and embassy about your AP at this time

i am using Isl number when i call to embassy and Dos ..Nvc gives me Eac number 2 years ago because lost my noa 1 2

Then all you are looking at is the info BEFORE you got to the embassy. It won't give you current information about your case now.. just the stuff prior to it going to embassy. Basically it's old news and has nothing to do with your case now. the only number now of importance is your ISL number.

If im wrong i apologize but i've never heard that you can check your Embassy AP status on the USCIS website using your NOA receipt numbers.

The initial review took way less time for us than the post decision activity so perhaps if your initial review takes a long time then your post decision activity might take less time. Some people have been really lucky in the process. We are almost at two years for our process and hoping for a second interview in August making it two years of paperwork. Patience is a virtue. Good luck
