The email you received of the approval should have said it was now transferred to NVC. It takes about 1 week or 2 give it till mid next week. Not sure about your country but don't do 8x10 pics you just need 4x6 dated and info of where they were taken written on the back, about 6-10 photos.

It only takes me a few days for NVC to get it. But call them in one week after it was sent to check it up. It really all depends on who is doing it and how fast he is doing it. You can call the NVC or DOS. As with the photos, the more the better, but they don't want them in a photo book. Only loose photos but organize them in chronological order. For example, before and after the engagement. All this information is in www.state.gov

I was in VN visiting Doan when the NOA2 came in the mail. When I returned home I called the NVC and they said it was sent to the HCMC consulate. The next day I received a letter saying the same. Best bet is to wait about two weeks from the time they sent it till you call.

As far as pictures go - you will get tons of advice - then you'll still be confused because everyone does it the way that is most comfortable to them. What you do want to do is organize them and present them in a manner that is easy to pass to the interviewer through the slot in the window. A picture book usually does not work to well.

Since our photos were all taken with a digital camera, I put them all into power point slides. I organized them by date and location and added captions that briefly described the people in the photo, where we were and what the occassion was. I had about 15 pages with about 8-12 pictures on each page covering two visits in January and April of 2009. Some examples of photos I sent are - at her parents home with mom and dad, visiting relatives, TET holiday with her family and relatives, Company Party with her Managers and friends, photos with her brothers, places you visit together, engagement ceremony, eating out - its good to have a variety.

We had no issues with the photos - and actually at the interview the CO spent more time looking at them and smiling than he did looking at anything else! I guess we were very lucky!

Bottom line is to be organized and present as many photos and as much information as you are comfortable with to show you have a true and factual relationship. It's a good idea if possible to include photos with other family members, relatives and friends too. It goes towards showing acceptance and involvement with them.

Be mindful - this is my opinion based on my experience.

Good Luck and Best Wishes

There isn't a certain number that is correct for photos. A few from each visit together is generally fine. Photos are just one means of showing the development of your relationship. For example: 2 pics with the grandparents is just as good as 10.

Print out a few per page so that you can put a caption below. Or, if you're sending snapshots, make black and white copies with a few per page and then have the original photos (at the interview) in a plastic bag with the captions written on the back.
