My Advice is usually based on "Worst Case Scenario" and what is written in the rules/laws/instructions. That is the way I roll... -Protect your Status - file before your I-94 expires.

Congratulations Papajeff :thumbs: . We had the same NOA1 date of Sep 12 at VSC. This is good news. This means my approval was not out of order/fluke, they are working on Sep filers at VSC or will get to soon. Hang in there all the other VSC filers. Good news should come your way soon, too.

What are the next steps for us now ? Do we need to contact the NVC/Consulate abroad ?
