The number is 603-334-0700, 1, 5 to speak to someone. I am pretty sure K visas are not entered into the automated system so you will have to talk to someone.

I'm not sure about the situation at CSC right now. A little while it was taking about 4 weeks for CSC to transfer to NVC.

Thanks ZEE, i just hope it does not take that long. A lady I spoke with from CSC the day we were approved told me that they would DHL it to NVC. Now I dont know how reliable such a statement is. I know that CSC has been on the same speed lane with snails for a long time.

Were you in AP? It seems that when cases come out of AP, they are then forwarded directly to the next step and don't have to wait for a group of other cases to catch up. When I came out of AP, they also forwarded my file alone to the Ghana Embassy instead of waiting for the other Ghana files that were in NVC to forward them together.

Interesting point Zainab. I was in further background and security check for a while. I hope that you are right. I will have to call them then to see if they have it. Cos the lady said specifically DHL and I really was too excited then to verify if she actually meant it.

The notice date on my NOA2 was 11/15/07. I called the NVC the first time on 11/29/07. They didn't receive my case until 12/10/07. I found that out when I called on 12/11/07. That's when they gave me the new case number LGS-XX-XXX-XXXXX. I called back on 12/14/07 and found they had forwarded the petition to the embassy on 12/13/07. My husband was able to pickup his pkg 3 & 4 on 12/27/07 after 2 previous trips to the embassy where he did not even get to talk to anyone. We didn't have to go through the extra security checks so not sure how that will affect your timeline. I pray they rush things for you!

Thanks for sharing.. :)

I thought if u went to the consolate with the NOA2 and that NVC number, that u could pick up the packets. Wondering why he had to go 3 times. Plus they are supposed to send u an email when the case has been tranferred from NVC..right? Now im so confused... :wacko: Did ur husband have both notices (NOA2 and NVC email) with him when he went the first 2 times?

This is sooooooooooooooo frustrating :help:

They can only give the interview date once they have processed the petition at the embassy. So, even if you know that it has left NVC you need to wait for a little bit for the embassy to actually get the information in their system.

That makes alot of sense Zee. Dang....heard so many different things! :blink: Thought thats why they electronically sent it...so it would be in the system faster. Thought the hard copy was just used mainly for the CO to use for reference when asking the SO questions at the interview etc.

Is anyone else going completly mad right now........... :unsure::wacko:

That would make sense wouldn't it? I'm not sure what the whole processing is like at the embassy, but that is just my guess.

My fiance went to the Consulate in Lagos on a Wednesday about 1 week after the NVC Operator told me the pkg had been forwarded to the Lagos Consulate. He took a copy of the NOA-2 and the NVC Approval Letter (I scanned and emailed to him) to the Consulate so that the Security Guards would let him into the Embassy.

Once Inside, he waitedin line at the Inquiries Section. When he finally reached the counter, he presented his passport (for identification), the copies of the NOA-2 and the NVC Approval Letter. The lady at the counter compared the photo on his passport to the photo on the computer screen and once she confirmed he was the same person, she printed the date of the interview and also gave him all of his paperwork.

The first time my husband went to the embassy, it was in the afternoon. They told him it was too late. The second time, he was there at 6:30 a.m. The guards were telling people to get their papers out and many people were ignoring what the guards told them. He said there were about 50+ people in line and about 10 including himself had gotten there at 6:30 a.m. After a few hours of waiting, they told them all to go home . . . that they got there too late. My husband was pretty upset about it. So he asked what time he should be there on the 27th and they told him 7 a.m. and he told them he will be there at 6:30 a.m. like he was that time and to remember his face. LOL. My husband had both notices when he went each time. We never received an e-mail from the NVC. Yes, you can pick up your packets but first you have to get past the line and into the cosolate to speak to someone.

Has anyone tried this with the CR1? I know if they sent the packet out already then you have to wait to get the packet. So it is beneficial to get to the consulate before the send out the packet.

Your SO will get there, will be seen, and get the earliest interview date possible.
