Be prepared to wait for NOA2 from 3months upto 5 months. If you are lucky you may get it in even less than 3 months.

Goodluck.

Congrats for starting your journey! May it be smooth! :thumbs:

the processing estimates on your timeline says you might get approved around Oct 27 - Nov. 2. That's an average, but it's good enough to keep it in mind. I'd say anywhere between late October to mid-December. Good luck!

Good luck on your journey!

Approval times can vary but 3-5 months is a reasonable estimate. Use the time to familiarize yourself with NVC processing which is the next step after your petition is approved. Begin to gather up the required documents as well as evidence of your relationship. Good luck!

Documents you will need for NOA2 are:

You mean after NOA2, yes?


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

what are the things we need to prepare as early as now after receiving the NOA1?

There are two patterns, always useful -

1. read the guides here, plan ahead, map out plan or

2. be spoonfed by other members, negating the guides that are available.

Which will you be, in the long term ?

The next document that you will sign is the DS-3032, then you'll sign the DS-230, and it has original documents requirement - please have a read?

DS-230 - http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_3190.html

Knowledge is Power !! Reading can make you POWERFUL !!! have you read the Guides Section here, yet ?

Hope all is well !

im a lil confuse sorry...

that's an estimation for when you might get the NOA 2; after NOA2, your file goes to NVC for a week (sometimes less or more), then to the Consulate...It usually takes another 30-50 days until the entire process is done. So, NOA2 around Nov-Dec, visa in hand Jan-Febr... Best of luck and, as our fellow VJ members posted, make sure you read the guides! It's all in there...
