Sent in K-1 in july...

Recommended Posts

I sent the K-1 in July. July the 29th is when they received it, I still have not received a NOA1. I called them today and was told it will be 5months before I get any notification or anything from them other than RFEs if needed. That is from a Tier 1 and Tier 2 CSR. What do you all think? It has been over 3 weeks with nothing in mail that I have seen concerning the NOA1.

Patience, you just started the process and have quite sometime before it ends, don't stress over the NOA1 or anything just yet, you will receive it, it takes about 1-2 weeks.

When you call to ask about things like that they will usually give a general answer but rarely will they look into your case and give you a more specific answer. They will communicate with you by mail for anything rather than give you answers by phone no matter who it is that you talk to.

You are right, but it has only been 10 business days. And no, it will not take 5 months so don't worry. NOA1 and Form I-797C are the same thing.

NOA1 and I-797C are same thing??? Never in my wildest dreams would have thought that.... No where on any site did I see that... well ok, I guess I need to update my timeline as it took them less than a day to get it back to me...

Edit: I am blind lol... Been looking at all sorts of places but where it says it :D

Well congrats. Noa...is notice of action. The the form number is I797-C and at the top it says,Notice of action on it...that's why we refer to it as Noa1 the second one as noa2. I dont know where it says that specifically in the forums...just learned it from reading up. That's not a term the uscis uses just us nobodies in the forums so that we know where each other are in the process. Edited by Shauneg

receipt notice (we got yer submittal) - NOA-1, using formletter I-797-C

petition approval (yer a winner!) - NOA-2, using formletter I-797 or I-797-C (depending on the service center)

just saying...


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

[Moderator hat off]

By the way, if you ever call USCIS and refer to an "NOA," they won't know what you're talking about. It's internal VJ lingo.


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).
