Post-NOA2 Approval Activity

Now that our Petition has been approved what can we expect? What specifically does National Visa Center do? More poring over paperwork re-checking already-done work by USCIS? How long does it take them to do it? Someone had said on this forum that they need to be called, why is that?

Take a look at the flow chart on the VJ website in the guide section

Pretty neat huh? good for information.

NVC logs the case and gives it an embassy number. K-1s only stay there for about a week or less then are sent to the embassy.

Call NVC and ask for your embassy case number if you want it early.

I was just double checking this very thing and came across this which you might also find helpful.

From my understanding, the NVC assigns an official case number, which the consulate uses for your application (which is different from your WAC petition #), and then sends your case to the consulate to be processed.

Folks call the NVC to get dates for when the case was received and to see when it gets forwarded to the consulate - a little bit of peace of mind.

Have I missed anything?

Aww rats, I just realized the link is for CR1 visas only... sorry about that

Question about the flowchart. I know I have a way to go before I reach this point.

We can apply for a SSN before we marry? I would think we would have to marry first.

No because a K-1 is entitled to an SSN,

Wait 2 weeks after entry and go to the SSN office and apply for an SSN. Thats it.

The SSN will be in the maiden name. The I-94 must be valid for more than 12 days when applying for an SSN or they will not issue the SSN without an EAD or green card.

Applying for the SSN after being married is easier because its one less document to have to change a name on. But you have to have a Valid I-94 still when applying for it after marriage.

Thank you for your response. I am the USC and I already have a SSN and understand I would have to change my name after marriage. Just to clarify, my fiance would bring his I-94 to the office 2 weeks after arrival. I guess it would be best to wait till after marriage and go the the SSN office together.

Bring the I-94 and passport, we also brought our marriage certificate and pre-filled out the SSN form by downloading and printing it.
