Hello,

The NBC seems to have slowed down processing I-129F applications, but on the other hand, they have caught up a lot of time on other visa categories. Does anyone know how they work? Do they process only a few categories at the same time or all categories simultaniously?

Thank you,

Michigan 204

NBC is Missouri service center & processes I-129F (K3)

Hello,

The NBC seems to have slowed down processing I-129F applications, but on the other hand, they have caught up a lot of time on other visa categories. Does anyone know how they work? Do they process only a few categories at the same time or all categories simultaniously?

Thank you,

Michigan 204

Yes NBC have slowed down by about a month but they are still working, last year alot of people didnt bother sending the I-129F(K3) as it was taking around 7 months to process, then i guess cos noone was sending it, they caught up, thats when i sent mine!!, i filed I-130 early April last year & didnt send the K3 until August!! because of the slow processing!!
It seems now more & more people are sending the I-129F(K3) to be processed, hench the slow down!! :yes:
I think all petitions are filed in date order not form order so i would say there is always some one processing the I-129F(K3) petitions!!
