how many days to wait for the first NOA1

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Are you waiting for the NOA1 for the I-130? or for the I-129F as well?

In either case, give them 30 days to receive the NOA1 and if you haven't received it by then, call them to find out what happened. They will then send you another NOA1 which will take another 30 days or so to receive. That's what happened to mine anyway, it was a mess.
