Hi! Try to call NVC and ask for your case # and Invoice Identification Number aka IIN. Then logon here http://ceac.state.gov with all of your information.

DS-261 is the 1st step

Abbas1987:

Don't call USCIS, call the NVC. When was your case sent to the NVC? If it was sent more than a week ago, they should have received it. If more than two weeks, they should have assigned the case # already.

Ahmedtazzi:

You don't have to wait four weeks. Call them this week to get the case number and the IIN. I've seen people getting these four days after the NVC acknowledged receipt (mine took three days).

We were approved on March 18 (Nebraska), USCIS sent the case to NVC on March 26. We called the first week of April and got the case number and IIN and received the NVC welcome letter in the mail a couple of days ago, so that hopefully means that your case is in the system by now, too. :) Just call NVC and ask.

I know it's frustrating, but keep trying. Maybe you got a cranky operator. My husband spoke to a very nice woman when he called.
