I tried to complete stage 1 on the NVC but got this error:


The selected Case Number and Invoice Identification Number combination you entered does not match our records. Please try again or contact the National Visa Center for further assistance.


My case number was assigned April 14th.  I called NVC that same day after getting the error message, and the guy said to give it 24 hours.  I've given it more than that, and it still shows.  Anyone else have this experience recently?

arrowCash/savings as Affidavit of support when filing from/living overseas

My husband (the USC) and myself currently live in Australia, and are moving shortly to NZ while we await my greencard process to occur.  We will be there until the visa comes through (I'll be having a baby and he'll be working part time) and therefore from everything I have read we would put his income as "0" because his job in NZ will cease when we move to the USA.  


Therefore, we'll be using our savings as our proof of support, is this ok?  Has anyone on here done so and what was your experience?  eg: did you end up needing a joint sponsor with ongoing income anyway?  

Also with regards to the amount .... I've had a look at the i-864P form at https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/form/i-864p.pdf  and for a household of 3 (myself, hubby and our soon to be born baby) it states we only need to show evidence of $25,200 .... is that correct?   I just expected it to be some astronomical amount but that's really reasonable so I'm wondering if I'm missing something.

Thanks in advance all!

arrowGreen Card - Living in Tijuana?

Ok, so here is a curly question. I got my green card on May 29 last year and live in San Diego. I work part time + freelance and volunteer for Charity, wife is a masters student in international relations and UCSD and gets a pretty beefy scholarship.  My volunteer work has me on both sides of the Border and I'm down in TJ a lot. I spent a few years living in Thailand (Bangkok, Koh Tao, Koh Phangan) so I'm used to developing countries (I actually prefer them - cost of living, lifestyle etc) the only reason we moved to the USA was for my wifes Education. 


I'm a Dual NZ/UK citizen, I understand that until I get US citizenship I have to spent at least 6 months of the year in the USA.  Are there any possible ways that I could live in TJ, cross into USA for work with SENTRI + Green card (+ 6 month Mex visas) while residing in TJ or Rosarito? 


My rent would drop dramatically, as would other cost of living, food would be great, and I could live by the beach, while being able to enjoy close proximity to San Diego and all it offers. Best of both worlds so to speak.

arrowHow long between NOA1 and receipt number going online?

I swear I saw a post about this recently but can't locate it.  Has anyone recently followed up with USCIS about the turnaround time?

My NOA1 was 24th March, email received 29th March, Hardcopy 11th April. So it's been 18 days since my NOA1 and the receipt number is still not live.  

The email from USCIS said I can access it within 7-10 days but suggested I wait til the hardcopy arrived ... which I have.   Would you expect it to be online now or do they take longer than their "estimate"?

arrowQuestions about processing of checklist item

Hi again,


Ok - I sent a checklisted item (i-864 form from joint sponsor), via UPS tracking - UPS site shows it was received/signed for on April 6th; but still haven't gotten an email of a "scan date" of it. 


--Should I be expecting a scan date email as the next step?  Or is it possible they are proceeding without sending me notice of receipt of the item?


--Is the 30 day wait started all over again, once they scan it?  I know, I should just be patient - but ohh I'm so hoping it won't.  :/ 


Thanks again!!!
