"The above petition has been approved, and forwared to the listed consulate."

On 08FEB2011, I received the email notification of the approved NOA2.

On 14FEB2011, I received the hard copy with the quoated statement above.

Who should I call to get my case number and status update? (NVC or consualte - London)

Currently its NVC until you get a status update saying its been forwarded to the consulate. Most likely you will get a NOA stating that your packet has been sent to the consulate.

You're going to want to call the NVC as they can give you both. Once they confirm your packet has arrived at the consulate you'll call them to setup the interview.

Why would I call the NVC if the documents went straight to the consulate? No offense, but that does not make any sense.

Bu that is exactly what I got, my NOA2 stating that the packet has been "forwarded to the listed consulate"!!!

All the NOA2s state that it is forwarded to the consulate, but standard procedure is that it will first go through NVC because they are the ones responsible for forwarding your case to the assigned consulate. You can call NVC to get your case number or to ask if it has already been sent (though in our case we never received any notice from NVC) or you can try to call the consulate to see if the case is already there. My suggestion would be to try calling NVC first

NVC is no longer holding your case once it is forwarded to the embassy.. So any updates will be through your embassy. DUH!!!!

No offense, but your original post doesn't make sense. You are already implying that consulate should be the one to answer your status, yet when someone gives advice that you can call NVC for updates, you retort back with a question like its the wrong answer. Dude, just call NVC, they will tell you on of the two things, either they know your status or the consulate knows your status. Then you wouldn't have to post this question of yours..

He is confused about the process, there is no need to be snappy.

Like I said, all NOA2s will say it will be forwarded to the consulate but it will still pass the NVC stage.

The OP did not know that. Heck, I didn't know it back then as well.

I hope everything is clear now JoshGriga

No offense, but the only way it goes "straight to the consulate" is via the "gateway" to the consulate system. Would you care to know what the "gateway" to the consulate system is? A place called NVC.

I was just confused cause I've been reading that the packet goes to the NVC first and then the consulate but my letter from USCIS said that they forwarded it to the consulate. I was thinking that this happened because I had an approved expedite request with USCIS.

Thanks a lot my friend..I appreciate the support, patience and consideration you have shown me. I was not aware that all NOA2s contain that verbage of being forwarded to the consulate. That basically clears up everything for me. Thanks, again.

The USCIS belongs to a different department than the consulates... USCIS does not have the ability to send directly to the consulate because they do not know which consulates do what visas.... that is the job performed by NVC. NVC gets the petition, assigns the appropriate consulate and it moves on...

You have got, London listed as your consulate, so you may be interested in these threads;

http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/264972-shortcuts-when-checking-for-updates-from-the-nvc-and-dos/ That will give you the phone numbers to call once your case gets to NVC. As soon as your case leaves NVC then DOS will track everything from there on out. In other words there is no need to call the London consulate directly.

http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/250067-between-noa2-and-interview-2010/ This is a good one to show you how to prepare between now and your interview.

Hope that helps :thumbs:
