You have your NOA2 but not the NVC MNL # yet?, it is just enough time to get those prerequisites out of the way. tick tock, time is ticking away, don't waste it. While waiting on the NVC number, you need to get your NBI and CENOMAR in hand. Before these, you need a Birth Certificate from PSA. After these three are accomplished (don't forget to get one for every AKA name, also. Even if a birth certificate was corrected with just one letter misspelled, you need AKA documents! or get the 221-G and then go get them!) - Get CFO scheduled and attend. They want a BOATLOAD of documents all about YOU (like past divorce decrees, birth certificate, etc.) so be prepared to send a lot of personal info to your F so she can attend the seminar. Try to get these all done BEFORE NVC number arrives. When you get NVC number, get online and get the DS-160 submitted, use your WAC number to register. Print a payment coupon and pay interview fee at the bank. 4 to 24 hours later, you can schedule an interview. All the while, any free time your F has, be printing documentation on ongoing relationship. When you get your MNL#, If Embassy appt is scheduled, do you have a hotel for her to stay at? Probably should get that arranged the same time you are scheduling a hotel for the medical.

Casa Bocobo is a 3 minute walk from SLEC

Sunny Bay Suites is 5 minute walk from the Embassy

If find yourself doing nothing, then start reviewing what you have done, and look for some step you can get done that you are missing. Waiting on the NVC number is actually a nice break, use the time wisely to get the fastest POE.
CEAC Tracking

after ISSUED then track visa / passport using your UID # found on your appt confirmation page
Estimates/Stats :

POE Review: Newark
Event Description
Entry Date : 2017-10-27
Embassy Review : a review for Newark POE here in VJ because the officers there made my fiance feel like a VIP the whole experience from start to finish. They directed her to the first line and welcomed her to the USA, The initial officer kidded around with her, asked when she was getting married then retorted with a big cheesy smile 'How will I know if you actually get married?' Congratulated her for arriving safely, asked her where she was going to live in the US and said 'Oh! You are going to love it there!'. Escorted her to the secondary room, took her envelope to the desk for her and offered her a seat in the waiting area. In 2 to 3 minutes she heard 'chunk, chunk' stamps and her name called and they handed her passport and again congratulated her and pointed the way out to the terminal for the connecting flight. Every officer in the area congratulated her, smiled at her, welcomed her to the USA from start to finish. Lickity split and all the smiles and congratulations and friendly treatment on top. I am so thankful for the courtesy of the CBP officers and staff for taking such good care of my Fiancee :D To make it all the better........ They didn't scribble ANYTHING or stamp on the K1 visa! It is still in new condition. They stamped on the next page and initialed. We worked and sacrificed like nothing else in our lives to get this to come to pass. The professionalism of this team of CBP was well above my expectations.
Harassment Level : Low

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
