Hi guys:

Please I need your help. I have not gotten yet the NOA2 but yesterday we were talking with my fiancee about whats the proceedin after getting it. I told him that after CSC sends our file to Peruvian Embassy, they will send me package 3. And after that, what? is there a package 4? When will peruvian embassy inform me about the authorized doctors for medical examination? After I have all my documents and medical examination, I should call to the peruvian embassy for scheduling an appointment for interview or they will send to me a letter giving me an specifical date?

As you can see, dear friends, I need to know what are the next steps, cause I want to have everything prepared and in order for the interview moment. Please if you could help us, we will be very thankful...

Thanks in advance... kisses

Angela (& James, 78 days waiting for NOA2, my love)

No, the CSC doesn't send your petition to the US embassy. Once they approve it, they will send it to the NVC (National Visa Center), this can take between 2-7 weeks. When they receive it, they will assign it a case number and then send it to the embassy which can take another 2-6 weeks. The embassy will then send you packet 3, this includes a list of documents that you need to have in hand before the interview, once you have them ready you reply to them telling them that you're all set. When they know you have your documentation ready, they will send you packet 4 which is the interview letter with day and time, this will also have the information needed for your medical.

Since the process of dealing with the consulate varies greatly... Have you reviewed the USE Lima website?

From CSC it will go to the NVC which took about 3-4 weeks and the on to the embassy in Lima. They will have it for about another 3 weeks and send you 1 packet, it is #3 & #4 combined. Make sure that you schedule the medical exam as soon as possible and go through the check list and have everything in there for your interview. The instructions in the packet will tell you exactly what you need and what to do. Good luck and feel free to let us know if you need any more questions answered.

Thanks very much guys!

Fwaguy: you re right, the process can vary from one consulate to another, and yes I will check the USA embassy website here in Lima for more details.

Mononoke 28: Well, as Bryan and Isa said, It seems like here in Peru the packets 3 and 4 comes together! I think thats a difference with the colombian proceeding maybe? Fwaguy was right, its possible that the process varies depending on the beneficiary country.

Bryan & Isa: I see that I will receive both packages together! Then I will read the instructions and know exactly what to do. I want to have everything ready for the interview moment, for that reason Im thnking right now in all the possible things I could need for that moment. I get a bit nervous only thinking about the interview but Im sure everything will be ok. James will come to Peru for being with me, so I think that I will feel supported and calm for that moment :) Im sure also that if I have some questions I will let you know, maybe you could help like now.

Thanks to everybody, kisses!

Hi Angela again!

Here's what you should be working on in Peru (once you get NOA2)... This is what David brought with him to the interview...

KEY: * = they did not ask for or did not want at the interview itself

OF-156K

datos biográficos (we sent it in per the directions and they wanted it again at the interview; thank god we had another copy)

interview appt letter

pasaporte

certificado de nacimiento, legalizado por la RENIEC

certificado de policía

certificado de penales

certificado de judicales

libreta militar *

2 fotos nuevas - glued onto the ds-156

cualquiera evidencia that he had *

examen médico

he needed to sign the papers that I brought; couldn't sign some of them until he was in the presence of the consulate officer

pay for the tariff - receipt needed!

Don't bother sending in the datos biográficos early, like the packet 3 says when you get it. We did that and then they wanted it again at the interview.

Here's what your fiance should be working on in the States; this is what I brought with me to the interview...

ds-156 - 2 copies for them to keep

ds-157

ds-156k English version that I got online * they only wanted the Spanish one that was sent to David

ds-230 parts 1 & 2 *

I-134 (there's a 3rd page in the packet 3 that I also signed and had notarized; have no idea if I needed to or not, but I did) - notarized

- tax transcripts * - originals

- stocks and bonds papers - copies

- retirement info (2) - copies

- letter from bank - original

- pay stubs - copies

- 2007 taxes - copy; including W-2s

- 2005-2006 taxes - copies, including W-2s

- employer letter - original

copy of I-129F originally sent *

original evidence = phone evidence, receipts from trips (air, hotel, bus, tourism, food, phone cards) *

more phone records * - I had copies for them to keep and originals with me

more emails * - I had copies for them to keep and originals with me

more pics * - I had originals for them to keep

new letters of intent * - originals

NOA1, NOA2 * - I had copies for them to keep and originals

passport *

electronic ticket *

Don't forget to make copies of EVERYTHING that you could hand over if you don't already have copies of those articles!

I hope this helps whoever is coming up next for the interview! Obviously at the interview they can ask for things that they didn't ask me for. I'm just writing what my experience was... The DS-230 was absolutely not needed, however.

Also, please keep in mind that some of these things are specific to the fact that David is a guy and he needed to do a couple of extra papers due to that fact. Also, in some cases it was easier for me to fill in the papers and have David sign them when I got to Peru.
