Is it too early to worry about NOA2?

Hi VJers!

Matt and I sent in our I-129F in February and received our NOA1 on March 11. We haven't heard anything since! I know the average is about 3 months for Canada, but it seems that like a lot of other couples filing from Canada and going through Vermont have heard something by now. Is anyone else in this situation? Is it too early too worry that our paperwork had a coffee spilled on it at someone's desk and is now in a landfill with seagulls picking at it?

Have you checked out the similar timelines to yours? Also, I think CSC "official" processing time right now for I-129Fs is 6 months. Another question...do you check your case on the USCIS site?

hey there, no need to worry just yet. the official timeline is 5 months but still, you are not advised to call up USCIS before at least 6 months have passed. that is exactly what we did and ask for an update on our status.

wait it out just a little more and don't freak. i'm sure no one spilled coffee all over your papers.

all the best! :thumbs:

At your stage, with the NOA-1, there is not disctinction between countries. The 3 months you refer to is timeline from NVC to the interview. USCIS timeline from NOA-1 - NOA-2 is about 5 months so you are well where you should be.

I'm sorry, I wish I could say that your NOA-2 is around the corner! Maybe it is, keep your chin up

Good luck

Yep, that seems normal for Vermont, don't worry yet.

I had my NOA2 4 months after we had sent it... I was starting to freak out in March because people that had sent theirs after me were getting their approval, and we hadn't had ours yet... Look at other timelines, but don't freak out either because it doesn't mean your timeline will be like theirs...

Good luck, and stay positive, you're in the early stages and things will fall into place! Look at it this way, all this waiting for the NOA2 will prepare you mentally for the wait for the interview with Montreal! :lol:

Good luck
