NOA2 RECIEVED! What's Next?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, i'm thrilled to say that March 31st or NOA2 was approved. NOA1 got there Nov.30, so it was about 4 months, not bad. Just wondering what is the next step. They will mail a packet to my fiance in Puerto Rico and then she will mail that back to me with what i have to do, now how does everything get to the Visa Center? Is she going to have to mail things there, or is it the Vermont Service Center? Thank you.

I'm a little confused - Your going through the Montreal Consulate and your finace is in Puerto Rico.

The fiance in Puerto Rico is the USC and you are the fiancee in Canada (do I have this right).

Umm - just to get this straight - a fiance is he, a fiancee is she. Anyway...

The I129F packet will go to the NVC and they will assign a case number and send it to the beneficiary in Canada. After the NVC sends it the USC should receive a letter with the case number and that it has been sent off to the consulate.

The beneficiary will receive instructions from the consulate on what forms to complete and send next and in addition there will be instructions on what things to do to prepare for the interview.

There will be some things the USC will need to prepare and send to the beneficiary such as I-134 Affidavit if Support and supporting documents, Original and Copy of the USC Birth Certificate, etc. You will want to start working on these now and not wait until you receive packet 4.

Check out the K-1 guide for what the USC will need to send you. Check out the Canada regional forum for exactly how things work in Montreal.

Best Wishes!

Haha, Sorry for not explaining this well. Well The Petitioner is the USC in Puerto Rico and I am the beneficiary in Canada. She is petioning for me, but i'm the one getting the info because she doesn't speak english, she has been in PR her whole life. So she is petitioning for the man :lol:

But thanks for getting back to me, I will start working on these things right away. Just for my information, the Affadavit of Support will be needed for the Interview only correct? Or will we needed it before?

Exactly what Bernie said. The packet is going to travel through the NVC and be sent to Montreal, where they will then send you (the Canadian beneficiary) a Packet 3 of forms and documents to prepare for you interview.

You might want to check out the Canada wiki page: http://www.visajourney.com/wiki/index.php/Canada

There is a copy of the packet 3 checklist Montreal will send you, so you can start preparing the forms and documents before you even get it.

And yes, the affidavit of support is needed for the interview :)

Congrats on the NOA2!

Thanks so much for your replies, much appreciation. :D

Yay! Im happy to see Im not the only puertorrican girl petitioning a Canadian guy ;)

Im on the exact same stage as you so... You'll get Packet 3 in the mail. It includes a letter with the instructions, disclaimers and a check list. They dont include the forms, you have to get them yourself. Some of the forms are PDF's(DS-230, DS-156K) which you can download. You file the DS-160 and DS-156 online. It even asks to upload a passport style picture :S . If you go to the Canadian Portal and then click on the Montreal Embassy Information you'll see all the documents they require. Print and sign everything according to the instructions including the receipt you filed de DS-160 online and the checklist with all the required documents. Mail it back to the address on the instructions. You'll eventually get Packet 4 which is a letter with the interview date. Yay! From the trends Ive seen, Montreal is 3 to 4 months out :( so, be patient :)

Invictus..

Out of the night that covers me,

Black as the Pit from pole to pole,

I thank whatever gods may be

For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance

I have not winced nor cried aloud.

Under the bludgeonings of chance

My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the Horror of the shade,

And yet the menace of the years

Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll.

I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.

William Ernest Henley

I saw mention in here of needing the original birth certificate of the U.S. Citizen. I missed seeing that in other write-ups of required information, is that true? Do I need to get a copy of my original birth certificate to send to my wife in Canada?

(She has her Long Form Birth Certificate already, we ordered it weeks ago).

Don't think it is required. My husband just submitted copy of his naturalization papers and passport with the I-130 application, nothing was needed after that.
