How long does it take to recieve packet 3 which is already at the consulate?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I want to know how much time it takes to the embassy to send me the packet 3.

I called NVC, they told me they sent the packet to the embassy in Argentina on March 18th. Traking by DHL, I found out the had recieved it (the embassy) on March 25th. However, I havent recieved packet 3 yet, and I am worried. I think I should have recieved it by now. I see other members timelines, and they recieve packet 3 in the same week the embassy recieve them.

I called to the embassy and they told me they cant give me any piece of information, that I only have to wait.

I dont know what to do.Is it normal? Its been 15 days since my packet arrived this country.

I just got this into my email

The IV Unit in Buenos Aires received the I-129F petition that you filed for your fiancée. Please find attached the instructions and information to apply for the visa. From the date you mail or transmit the requested documentation, please allow 10/ 15 business days for the Immigrant Visa Section in Buenos Aires to review this documentation. When we complete our review, we will notify you/ beneficiary with the information regarding the appointment date and other relevant matters.

is this packet 3? or do they send it by post mail too?
