32 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

When I thought this whole visa approval process would never happen......I get an email saying:

Application Type: I130 , IMMIGRANT PETITION FOR RELATIVE, FIANCE(E), OR ORPHAN

Current Status: Approval notice sent.

On January 6, 2009, we mailed you a notice that we have approved this I130 IMMIGRANT PETITION FOR RELATIVE, FIANCE(E), OR ORPHAN.

Ok, so now to all you "guru's" out there............HELP! I feel like I know what I'm doing, but I really would love some information

from those who have gone with the I-130 what happens next, what to expect, etc. I just feel like I'm on information overload!

So if there are any people with good info out there please let me know! I would love to know the process from here.

WOO HOO! :dance: Sorry, I'm so excited!

There's hope out there to all you still waiting!

Read Lingche's guide to NVC carefully. Take a good hour or so to fully understand what you will need. Then follow the steps to fly through NVC just like me! don't get worried if you don't get IIN over the phone. It doesn't delay anything.

LingChe's guide is linked in my signature below.
