Petition approved but what's the next step???

13 posts in this topic Register to Ask a Question

I've appreciated having this forum as a guideline and it was so nice to know that others were going thru the some worries & stress that we are. I just checked our "receipt number" online and it said that it was approved and that they sent us a notice on August 28th so hopefuly that will arrive today. But what is the next step???

Congratulations, what you need to do is call NVC after one week to get your case number. NVC will send your case to the embassy where your beneficiary is, once the embassy receives it, send them email right away for packet 3, do police report and medical and then schedule your interview date. Good luck

You don't need to email London to receive a packet 3. They will send a letter of instruction when they are ready for you. That letter is your "packet 3". It's not a packet. London is supposedly changing some procedures tomorrow so I suggest you wait for that and see what the new K1 instructions are. Meanwhile start gathering the documents needed for the interview. The police certificate is needed to show at the medical so order it ASAP. Get the I-134 from petitioner. This is the current K1 instruction for a list of documents ts to gather (see step two). Wait on new info about forms to complete. http://london.usembassy.gov/iv_15.html. Click the various links to learn about the medical, fees, etc.

Also the post above tells you to schedule your interview. That does not happen in London. They will assign an interview to you by letter. You don't pick. You can wait 4 weeks after everything is in before they contact you with a date. Each consulate is different.

Hello all! :) Thank you for all the advice and help! I just had another quick question...they said that they sent the approval notice on August 28th and last time I received mail from them, it only take a day or the day after to arrive. Should I be worried?

NO !! You don't need the notice until AOS. Just make sure you eventually get it.

Ok. :) I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't suppose to receive anything. I didn't get an email or anything, I just randomly saw that it was approved. So now it's another waiting game for the NVC to receive our package, correct?

You need the paper copy of the approval for submitting with you adjustment of status, so if you don't have it in two weeks, call USCIS and track it down.

Yes, NVC next step. Sometimes there and off to London very quickly (days). Sometimes weeks to get to NVC and weeks to leave there. It's a big waiting game at every step with no real predictable timeline for London.
