Okay so we got our noa2 but im confused about the nvc thing. Is there a way to check online if they've received it or should I call in 2 weeks like the flowchart says? I tried navigating the nvc site to check it but got lost lol.

The petition will go to the NVC and a case number is assigned and then it is sent to the embassy. This can take as little as a week or several months. You should receive a letter from the NVC with your case number that is used at the embassy. As example, the case number starts with the embassy ID, Manila is MNL. I don't know others so use Manila as the example.

it usually takes about a week to get to NVC you can call them direct and speak to a human (k1's dont show up on the automated option) and they will tell you when they receive it and give you a new case number which will stay with you thro the USEM interview etc.

I'm a little confused as well...

Mel seems to understand it a little better.

Why oh why do they make us wait so long seems so cruel hahaha.

Love is not blind. Love see's more and not less. But because it see's more it is willing to see less.

You can call NVC to find out if/when your approved petition was sent out. If you have a day you can track it to AUK using DHL and know when it arrives. Do a search here to find out how.

fyi... AUK will send your packet 3 VERY quickly after receiving the package and interview is usually in less than a months time after you get it back to them. Be sure to read through the NZ regional thread for more info.

So I have been doing the whole track it thing on the dhl.com website. It says it was delivered and signed by today. Does this mean it was received by the Consulate?
