So we got our noa2 on April 13th and sent off to nvc on the 16th, we are in no time really to call nvc and be stuck and put on hold so we are sort of just waiting for their letter with the details,

How soon after they issue a case number could we expect this letter from them?

Oh and also, do they notify us on email/text message when they send our case to my consulate? Or, is this why we need the case number to follow our case?

The letter from NVC is sometimes a hit-or-miss affair. Some folks get a letter form NVC, some do not. I believe that we got a hard copy letter via snail mail several weeks after our file had been forwarded to the interviewing consulate. Hence the general forum recommendation for the petitioner to contact the NVC and get the DOS case file number.

Good luck on your immigration journey.

The embassy will send you an email with a checklist and it will include the case number so you could just wait for it to arrive if you want. We got our NOA2 in the mail the same day the embassy received our case and we got the checklist the day after. We didn't bother calling NVC either.

The case number can be used to track it yes, but the embassy in Stockholm is quick to send out the checklist once they get it. You will need your case number to be able to do your medical as well as schedule your interview.

If you want, you can PM me and I'll send you info about what's in the checklist and you guys can get a head start and start to gather documents before you get your case number.

I received my letter from the NVC with my case number last week- about a month after my fiancee arrived here in the USA. So I wouldn't count on getting anything from NVC. It may or may not happen.

How does the embassy know the beneficiaries email? I cannot remember putting that anywhere when we filed...

From my own experience, the embassy e-mailed me to ask for the beneficiary's e-mail address, then e-mailed her.
