After the NOA2

I have been reading a lot but am still a bit confused. I realize that there is a long time between filing and then receiving my NOA2.

My finace and I are wondering what she can do while we wait. I read that she will need NBI clearance but somewhere else I read she should wait to get this after she is contacted by the US Embassy. We want her to get everything she needs now but we don't know what things she could do now or what things she should wait to do.

One of the things is she applied for a passport but what others things should she do? I don't want anything popping up that she could have done now and have it cause a delay. I can't seem to find a clear list on things she could get a jump start on because it seems that she is supposed to wait to do somethings.

Also I am still concerned about the letter she is supposed to receive. She does not live at the address that was filed anymore but her sister and a housekeeper do. What if the letter never arrives? Does she need it or can she call to have a new one sent?

Thank you

I was looking at that list but wasn't sure if it was fine her to do things before the NOA2 or not. Like can she go ahead and get NBI clearance or does she have to wait until after NOA2?

Also if she has never left the country does she need police clearance or something from them that states she has never left the country?

Wait until after NOA2.

Nothing needed to indicate never been out of country, just a police report from PI is needed.

Why wait until after the NOA2? And what about the other items needed for Manila: Certified birth certificate and Certificate of no marriage record (CENOMAR). Can/should these be obtained before the NOA2?? Thanks.

Birth cert is valid indefinitely, CENOMAR is valid for 6 months or a year as well as police cert. I-134 tends to get stale so also should be prepared closer to interview.

Who knows how long you will be waiting for NOA2, however after NOA2 the timing is fairly constant, so getting these things after NOA2 guarantees that they will not expire before visa interview.

hmmm..let her get her birth certificate (1 copy for USEM and another copy that she could bring to US for AOS)... NBI clearance has 1 year validity. I got my NBI clearance in just one day. Birth certificate and CENOMAR could take few more days but usually, u can get it on the same day..It depends on the servicing office and the number of applicants.

The USEM letter is for ur fiancee to know that ur case is available for interview schedule. She can leave an authorization letter to any of the relative residing at her address..

For USEM interview, the Interview appointment confirmation letter in your email is needed for your interview not really the USEM letter.

how to get the confirmation letter? hmmm...when u call USEM to schedule your fiancee's interview, once u are done talking with the call rep, a confirmation letter will be sent to ur fiancee's email address.. she should print it out and bring it to USEM on her interview date.


Eternally destined,

Angel&Saint
