Hello all,

I have a petition filled in my behalf as a brother of an USc, made in 2000. My NVC case number starts with 2003.

As i saw in NVC bulletin now they process june 1999. First ,i'm not so familiar with all the abreviation you guys have here, NOA and all, is there an abreviation guide somewhere here? Second, if my number starts with 2003, it means that i have already NOA1 approved? Where can i have a step by step guide of all this process, regarding brothers and sisters application?

According to my calculation,based on the actual processing speed in NVC, my case will be in about 6-7 months, and I want to be prepared with all the papers.

Thanks for the eventual answers and inputs.

Regards,

Laur

Hi Laur,

you can look up abbreviations in the Wiki, next to the Guides on the top. If you type NOA in the search box for example, it comes up with a page that's titled Notice Of Action and the explanation what it is.

I do not know how the process for siblings works, but thought I could answer part of your questions. :-)

Good luck!

Hi Betti,

Thank you for your quick reply regarding the abbreviation part. Now I still need some help about the siblings immigration guide, a step by step one if possible. (translation of the certificates and so one, time from they day they approved to the day you get visa, school certificates translation, kids school papers to relocate them, any info)

Also why since they applied for me in october 2000, my NVC number starts with 2003? This is NOA 1?

Thanks and good day !

Hi again,

I still need some help about the siblings immigration guide, a step by step one if possible. (translation of the certificates and so one, time from they day they approved the visa to the day you get visa, school certificates translation, kids school papers to relocate them, any info). Is there somewhere a special forum related to siblings immigration?

As I saw here, most of the topics are fiancee-spouse related.

Also why since they applied for me in october 2000, but my NVC number starts with 2003? This is NOA 1?

If for example,my NVC number is in january 2000, I'll be in january notified that I'm approved? Or before that date, or after?

I forgot to mention to you guys that I was in 1991 in the US, and I overstayed the B1 visa, from 6 months to 10, since first time my sis applied for political asylum for me, got a driver license and SSN but after that I left back to Romania.

This can affect in any way my petition ? Also, if I am in another country, as tourist or bussines or worker, when I will receive my approval, can I proceed with the document processing and medical exam in the US consulate from that country, or I'll have to go back to my country of origin?

Thanks and good day !

I'm not completely certain about the documentation requirements for siblings. I would assume that you would still need your original birth certificate, police certificate and affidavit of support documents. Maybe someone who has been through the process could clarify.

I thought that the NVC numbers start with a 3 letter code for the embassy, followed by 10 numbers. This is how ours was. But our four digit year represented the year the file was received at the NVC.

Hope this helps some!

Best of luck!

You will need your original birth certificate

Yes indeed, the number starts with the 3 letter code, but then the year code is 2003, not 2000. Still my sis applied for me in oct 2000!! I think this is the NOA letter, since my priority date (date petition was filled) is 2000....

In my petition of unmarried son of LPR, wich was filled in 1996, I have 1996 number, same as priority date, don't know if you understand what i'm talking about.(question posted also in bringing family members of LPR subforums) I know I will receive some documents requesting birth certificates and police record and all for the visa, but I'm also asking about the necessary documents for living in the US, for kids to go to school and so. All inputs are welcome, thank you.

And since my sis applied for me, as brother of USC, and I'm married with children, when I should give the necessary documents for my wife and kids to get visa?

you will provide your family information (spouse, children) to NVC when your visa application is beginning to be processed...

If your petition has not yet been approved you do not have a NVC number ... You do have a USCIS number.... (EAC, WAC, LIN, SRC)

I saw here on forums, in the waiting list, "case touched". What does that means? And how do you know if your case was "touched", if that's the meaning of it?

Regards,

Laur

"touches" are a USCIS phenomenon... there is no equivalent with a DOS (embassy) case file

Yes, but NVC is part of the DOS... your case # BCHxxxxxxxxx is a DOS/Embassy number not a USCIS number.... Since you are finished with the USCIS already... there is no ability to monitor "touches"...
