Hi,

on October 1, I received an e-mail from the USCIS that stated:

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

Current Status: Approval notice sent.

On September 30, 2009, we mailed you a notice that we have approved this I130 IMMIGRANT PETITION FOR RELATIVE, FIANCE(E), OR ORPHAN. Please follow any instructions on the notice. If you move before you receive the notice, call customer service at 1-800-375-5283.

If you have questions or concerns about your application or the case status results listed above, or if you have not received a decision from USCIS within the current processing time listed*, please contact USCIS Customer Service at (800) 375-5283.

*Current processing times can be found on the USCIS website at www.uscis.gov under Check My Case Status and Check Processing Times.

*** Please do not respond to this e-mail message.

I recently moved (I changed my address at the USPS. and they told me that my mail will get forwarded to my new address)

so i did not change the address with USCIS just so that things don't get too complicated.

then on october 8, i received this from the USCIS:

On October 8, 2009, the post office returned your document I130, IMMIGRANT PETITION FOR RELATIVE, FIANCE(E), OR ORPHAN as undeliverable. We will hold it for 180 days from October 8, 2009 to allow you time to contact us. If you do not contact us at 1-800-375-5283 within 180 days, this document will be destroyed and you will need to file a new application or application for replacement with fee

I called the USCIS and explained what happened (that the post office didnt forward the mail like they said they will)

and got an address changed, and also a request to resend the notice of approval.

they told me that it will take 45 days to get the notice.

so my QUESTION IS :

since my case was approved, but did not get the hard copy of the notice of action...will my case still get forwarded to the NVC ?

or will it get forwarded after i receive the actual notice in the mail in about 45 days?

Thank you

Yes, your case should be forwarded to NVC... However, the post office will not forward official govt documents because it is printed on the front of the envelopes Do no forward or no forwarding service

there are many documents that may be mailed to you KEEP USCIS AND NVC IMFORMED OF ANY ADDRESS CHANGES

I would guess, but don't know, that your case would have already been forwarded to NVC by the time the NOA2 came back to their office. I would call the USCIS again to see if you can retrieve your receipt number...that way you can call the NVC and get your case number so that you can proceed.

But ultimately, based on the timelines I have read here, I'm pretty sure your case would have already been forwarded to the National Visa Center. Usually the NVC receives the approval a week or so after the NOA2.

Good luck!

You can call NVC to see if they have your case because odds are they ALSO mailed you information which was not forwarded because the govt has to be accountable for those letters arriving to you and if you move, they are informed immediatly and the mail is not forwarded.... I would call NVC and give them you USCIS number and see where things stand

Your case will get transferred to NVC anyway. But in order to get your NOA2, just follow USCIS instructions.
