Ok, can someone please tell me approximately how long once you submit your I-130 (going to Vermont), do you typically get your NOA1? I am a bit confused on this because I thought that the processing guideline stated that they arent starting on applications before a certain date? Can someone please cearify this for me? I am sorry for sounding so daft but I honestly am getting confused on this. Its hard when you hear one thing then another..THank you again..

Typically in about 2-3 weeks after the USCIS received your I-130. NOA-1 is I-797C which would inform you that they received your application and they will contact you, as soon as the processing will be complete.


I-130 Timeline with USCIS:

It took 92 days for I-130 to get approved from the filing date

NVC Process of I-130:

It took 78 days to complete the NVC process

Interview Process at The U.S. Embassy

Interview took 223 days from the I-130 filing date. Immigrant Visa was issued right after the interview

My service center is Nebraska, but we got our NOA-1 just 14 days after we sent in the I-130. They send that out to you right away, and then your application goes in the queue for processing.

Good luck!

We sent ours to TX and then it was forwarded to CA. Our NOA1 took about 14 days to reach our US address from the date we sent our petition.

Did you pay by personal check or money order? If you pay by check you'll have an indication as to when your NOA is coming. Ours arrived within 5 days of the check being presented to the bank. :D
