As some of you may know, there was an earthquake in Chile this past February; I was there visiting my husband! Yikes!! Someone here told me that there was something on USCIS website about expediting your immediate relative if they live in Chile. So this Monday I looked for that notice and found it, I called USCIS and spoke to someone who put me thru to someone in a higher lever than hers (she was very sympathetic) I told him about my husband and that I had just came back from Chile and there are still earthquakes some of them 5.6. He put me on hold for 15 minutes came back on the line and asked me my name my adress my receipt number and put me on hold again. He told me that he wrote a note on my application and most likely it would not be approved, but never the less he wrote a note and sent it to a supervisor.

That was on Monday July 19

I checked my case status around 5pm yesterday before leaving work, I saw no change then this morning I checked my emails and there it was my case has been approved and they sent me a an approval notice on July 21!! so this is NOA-2!!!!

If anyone here has a relative in Chile make that call!! I should have called when someone here told me about it about 3 weeks ago!

Ok now I need a cup of coffee and get all things ready for NVC!!!

I am sure I will need help so I am looking forward to all of those going thru NVC to help me out!

First question is there a trhead on what to do now? how long do I wait to call NVC? I'm so excited my mind is a BLANK!!

Thank you God for this blessing!
