"Presort" - is that NVC Received?

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

A bit of a frivolous question, but I was wondering if a "presort" status (as I was told yesterday on the phone by an NVC rep) is considered "NVC" received.

I'm asking this because I want to know if I should fill in the 'NVC Received' slot in my timeline. For some reason I derive immense joy and happiness being able to check off another box.

Sounds to me like the USCIS are waiting to ship it out, alternatively that it was just received by the NVC. Does your USCIS status say that they sent your case to department of state?

Nope, but I've seen it doesn't always get updated for everyone, so :unsure:

How does the "Sent" status look like? Mine says "Approved" online, and the NOA2 hardcopy text says "Sent to NVC" (but that might just be a standard text).

Interesting. Maybe it depends on the service center? Here's a text from an I129F approved back in May. I'd assume that this petition has already been received, etc. (This isn't my petititon - I was approved on July 10; just random number entries).

On May 13, 2015, we approved your Form I-129F, Petition for Fiance(E), Receipt Number WAC-----------. We will mail your approval notice. Please follow the instructions in the notice. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address.

Mine also states that it was sent to the department of state.. I don't think it varies by service center but it could possibly be that they didn't update.. You can always keep calling NVC and inquire if you don't mind the wait :)

There are two other VJ'ers that have been told about "pre-sort" and have received their case number within a matter of days:
