How long did it take?

It took 5 days before an operator was able to tell me the NVC case number.

It took at least another 3 days before I could access my case from the AVR (automated voice response system).

I just posted some info about NVC, that may be helpful to you....

Lemme know

omg 2 days? That's insane!!!

..... :blink:

Seriously, relax.

Sometimes it takes awhile...even up to a couple of weeks.

We got our hard copy NOA2 within a week....our case was sent to NVC in 3 days.

Relax.

Awwww come on Laura, surely it hasn't been so long since you were antzy :-)

It's easy to tell people to relax when you're on the downside of the hill.

We're nowhere close to where you're at, but I can still see how,

as things get closer it's easier to be calm...but back in the USCIS days...

I remember quite well but I didn't get all stressed out over 2 days....

If it had been weeks I would have been like..."Hello, what's going on"???

2 days is quite normal....nothing is instant in this process....these things take time.

How long did it take?

Did you call NVC?

We got approved at VSC on Friday, 8/22. On Tuesday the 26th they told me still not received, then on Wednesday they said it was received Tuesday and gave me the case #. I figured that was pretty good for being approved on a Friday. Only 2 business days.

It is nice to hear them read you that consulate case number!

I received the hard copy NOA2 yesterday.

I called NVC 9 or 10 PM eastern time and it was pretty easy to get through.

Good luck!

LOL about relaxing. I've actually considered this time between CSC and NVC as "down time" where I don't have to worry about anything. My paperwork is done. I just have to wait for NVC to get the ball rolling again. I don't have to check statuses compulsively because there's nothing to check! I'm on a neurotic holiday! ;-)

It's been 2 days since i've approved...still havent gotten hardcopy of NOA2 from CSC, and I dont think NVC has received my case yet.

:(

How long did it take?

Just a hint for you. I watched my checking account for the check to clear the bank and I printed a copy of the check - front and back and low and behold the number was on the back of the check. Look there.
