Hey everyone,

New visa journey member here from Canada :) My fiance & I just got engaged and just sent our I-129f package in mid January. The sample forms here REALLY helped when we were compiling the package :)

My fiance just received this in the mail (attached image)..it says I-797C, but is this also the NOA 1? If not, what would the NOA 1 normally look like? I checked the forms in the 'Gallery' section but not sure if ours is NOA 1...?

Thanks!!

It's also referred to as a Receipt Notice. Basically USCIS is acknowledging the receipt of your I-129F package.

NOA2 is the Approval Notice.

NOA2 is the Approval Notice.

The so called "NOA2" is not necessarily an appproval notice. A RFE is also a "NOA2".

Another reason why the terms NOA1 and NOA2 should not be used on Visa Journey. Just call the NOA1 a receipt notice and call an approval notice an approval notice and call a RFE a RFE.

I have never heard someone call an RFE an NOA2.

Well if the second I-797C (Notice of Action) you recieve is an RFE then your NOA2 would be an RFE wouldn't it??

Technically, yes. But on VJ, an RFE is called an RFE.
