Does the approval dates on the NOA2 mean that your interview must be between the from and to dates?

I just received the hard copy of the I-797 (NOA2) on 11/24 and on it it says "Notice Type: Approval Notice Valid from 11/20/2014 to 03/19/2015. Seems pretty straightforward but just want to make sure....

I will brief my case

We have applied for i-130 in Jan 2014 under f2a category as my wife was LPR at that time

PD - Feb 3 2014

Wife became citizen and sent evidence to upgrade the petition to USCIS

Initially they changed my status to this 

"On October 30, 2014, we received your correspondence for your I130, IMMIGRANT PETITION FOR RELATIVE, FIANCE(E), OR ORPHAN . You will receive a notice in the mail when further action is taken on this case. Please check our website at for further updates on your case. If you move, please use our Change of Address online tool to update your case with your new address."  



And after some days the status changed to


 "On October, 2014, we received your correspondence for Form I-130, Immigrant Petition for Relative, Fiance(E), or Orphan, Receipt Number "*******************". We are reviewing your correspondence, and will mail you a notice if we need something from you. If you move, go to to give us your new mailing address."  


Then yesterday we have contacted USCIS by email and they replied with below message (in RED)


Dear **********:

On 11/24/2014 you, or the designated representative shown below, contacted us about your case.  Some of the key information given to us at that time was the following:

Caller indicated they are:
 -- Applicant or Petitioner

Attorney Name:
 -- Information not available

Case type:
 -- I130

Filing date:
 -- 01/15/2014

Receipt #:
 -- *************************

Referral ID:
Beneficiary (if you filed for someone else):
 -- **************************

Your USCIS Account Number (A-number):
 -- Information not available

Type of service requested:
 -- Outside Normal Processing Times

The status of this service request is:

On November 19, 2014, you or your representative contacted USCIS concerning your Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, to notify us that you have naturalized and are requesting an upgrade in the status of your petition. Below is a summary of what we found and how the issue has been or may be resolved.

We have updated your relative petition to reflect that you are now a U.S. citizen. As a result, your petition has moved to a new visa category. However, immigrant visas in the new visa category are not immediately available from the U.S. Department of State (DOS).

You can obtain more information about immigrant visa processing at the DOS Web site at You can also ask to have the Visa Bulletin sent to you monthly via email. Complete instructions on how to subscribe can be found at the bottom of the Visa Bulletin, which you can also view on the DOS Web site.

We hope this information is helpful to you.


So worried now.. can somebody please tell me the meaning of this?? this is going to delay more?

Hi all,


So far the everything in the visa process has been going smoothly.  But now the fiancee and I have hit a snag in our case.

When I filed the I-129F petition for my fiancée she was working in the UAE. Her residence visa expires Dec 2015  however as of recently she is no longer employed which I assume means her residence status will be canceled. She also had residence in UAE from 2009 to 2012.  NVC has already sent our case to the Embassy in Abu Dhabi. Also the Embassy or Consulate in her native country (Kyrgyzstan) does not process k1 visas for fiancees or immigrant visas for that matter.  I believe that Kazakhstan is the nearest country that has an embassy that processes K1 visas and even that comes with its challenges.  Basically Im trying to see if anyone knows if she can still do her interview in UAE since her country does not process k1 visas and its already been routed there?  Will the push for transfer to somewhere else that does process visas?   Should I contact the embassy with this issue? Thanks for the help and suggestions everyone!
