sorry no, after it leaves USCIS they no longer have it in their system

you have to have the new case number from NVC and see case under CEAC

it will take anywhere from 2 weeks to a month to get the new case number

 

i believe it only passes thru NVC for new case number and you should see when to schedule the medical exam and interview

Please do not type in all caps, that's considered rude.

 

You said you're already approved? How did you get notice of that? NOA2 usually comes a few days after that.

How long?  Currently the approvals are averaging 150 days +/- a week.  That's the average.  I know of some February filers still waiting, but approvals far outweigh those left.  You should have an approval very soon.

 

The USCIS case status website has been broke since May 2nd.....  USCIS only lets the site operate if you have an RFE.  Rarely approvals come through on it.  Not much bang for your $535 your surrendered to USCIS.   anyway, here is the site..... https://egov.uscis.gov/casestatus/landing.do

 

Oh, that optional form you may of sent out with your I-129F - the G-1145 or whatever number it is called, well the optional part is if USCIS notifies you of a NOA2.  The way people are getting notified is getting a NOA2 in the mail, or sometimes the case tracker apps will happen to catch an approval.

 

Join in the April Filers thread by clicking below.  Scroll to the last page and ask any questions of your peers in the same boat as you.  There you will gain some good knowledge to expediently continue your journey.  Trust me, after NOA2, it goes as fast as you can handle it.  MNL embassy is basically self service.

 

Good luck, and speedy NOA2

OP, are you already using online case check? It's not always 100% reliable but resourceful enough to track petitions and approvals. On your NOA1 (I-797) is a receipt number on the top left, use that number to track your case via the uscis online case tracker if you haven't already. After approval, your approval hard copy (I-797c) will be delivered within seven days.

Not true? I could track my approval (July), and it updated through the case check. Where did you get that info from?

Really?   OP is a I-129F filer.  Likewise, as was I.  My case number on the Case Status site still today shows as 'My Case Was Received' even though it has been through NVC and sits at the embassy.   A February I-129F filer (trilobyte) reported the site as being taken down or broken as of May 2nd 2017 continuing through his POE last month.  A March I-129F filer (TwoDs) also verified the inability of the site to function.  I cite these 2 VJ members as an ability for you to contact them and verify this statement.  Additionally, very near 100% of the approvals for the March filers DID NOT receive any electronic notification, just a NOA2 arriving unannounced in the mail.  One person didn't get the mail and found out their approval by a NVC letter their case was 'In Transit' to the embassy.  In my case, I waited 157 days, then a letter from CSC arrived with my approval.  Even though I had filled out the Optional Notification Form, I received NO notification I was approved until the letter arrived.  Incidently, the USCIS case status on their website still reported Case Received, last touched March 23.  Independent Android case tracker app on phone also said the same thing.  What is odd is that while NOA2's didn't appear, RFE's DID show up on the Case Status site.  If you received NO RFE, then you sat in the dark for 5 months and knew nothing.  When April approvals started appearing in mail boxes, the manner continued then magically, once in a while, VJ members started reporting capricious notifications of approvals, but yet not all, and certainly not the majority of them.  This can be verified by an April I-129F filer (estibaliz).  Further, I invite you to pick some I-129F threads out in random, look in the February and March threads and see the posts related to these issues.  

 

I stand by my statement  The USCIS case status website has been broke since May 2nd.....  USCIS only lets the site operate if you have an RFE.  as it pertains to a I-129F filer.  If uscis lets AOS filers information to flow through the website case tracker, beats me, but for the K1 filers, it has been a very long summer.
