NVC status

Hello all,

Well, i thought the worst was behind me (98 days at VSC). But now that we have been approved and the NOA2 has been received, I want to know if the NVC has received our application AND if they have forwarded it to my fiancee's embassy in China. The NOA2 said to wait at least one week after receiving the NOA2 before contacting the NVC. It is now been over one week since we received the NOA2 notice in the mail, so i tried to call the NVC number that was given to get the status. The line has been busy since early this morning. I emailed them last week, but have not received a response. Has anyone else been able to get through to them during business hours or do you have to wait online to get through? I can't even get through to the automated system, it just rings busy. After hours it is no problem getting the automated, but it does not give you any information, it just says you have to talk to a customer service rep. Also, does the NVC assign another number to your case or do you just use the number on your NOA1 for status? I really just want to know if they received it from Vermont.

Thank you

Kurt and Ellen

NVC will assign another case# when they receive and process your file. Also, for K-1's the automated system does not work, you need to speak with a live person. I know the line is very busy to get thru, but try first thing in the morning, they start accepting calls at 7:30 am, and I usually get thru pretty quickly around 1pm.

Good Luck!!!

I am still waiting for mine case number from NVC since I received NOA2 on June 30th.

Its hard to get in touch with them during the day. I called all morning one day and finally got through at 630pm that night. Once you get them on the phone, verify with them that they received your approved I-129f. Once they verify they have received it, get the NVC number from them. Also find out when the approved I-129f was forwarded to the Embassy.

That's the problem. NVC telling me they did not receive my approved I-129F and USCIS claim they sent it.

Oh, I see. Well i would contact the USCIS and get a tracking number or something. They say they sent it, then they need to prove it! Get a tracking number from them or talk to a supervisor. That's B.S. They need to tell you something.

Trust me I spoke to the supervisors, immigration officers at USCIS. They have no way to track it. I just received following email from nvcresearch

Dear Sir or Madam:

Please be advised that the National Visa Center (NVC) has received your inquiry and the attached I-797 Notice of Action - Approval Notice.

Unfortunately, we do not have record of receiving your approved petition. The NVC will contact U.S. Citizenship Immigration Service (USCIS), on your behalf, for information on the location of this petition.

Wow. I can't believe you have to suffer because they made a mistake. I would stay on them. Why can't they just send another one. They have it all in the computer? Who knows what they are doing. They should give these cases special attention. Good Luck

NVC still have no case number for me. Spoke to immigration officer at USCIS, she told me I have to wait 90 days before I can me an inquiry. What a joke!!! Somehow I feel VCS didn't send my approved petition to NVC. So now I have to wait 90 days for USCIS to to anything about it. Approval Notice is valid only for 120 days. What happens then?
