You usually get an email first for NOA2 and then hard copy mail You would have had to added an address for posting when you sent in 129F

Hi Ama,

I am the petitoner. I received a letter that the petiton was approved and was being forwarded to NVC. Once I knew that I was calling NVC like twice a week or more to find out if my package was sent to Ghana. Once NVC do their checks they will send to US Embassy in Ghana. I sent a email to the embassy in Ghana and they let me know that they had recevied it and that the beneficiary was sent a letter to pick up package 3/4. they also instructed that if he has not receive the letter that he could pick up his package on 08/25/10 and to bring a copy of the email they sent with I.D. the package includes all the forms and instructions of what to do next. All the forms we receive in our package were expired. make sure to check for that. If they are expired go online and get the up to date forms. For the DS 156 you will fill that one online anyway. I will post a link to the forms later.

Not really. My fiance did eventually did get the letter, but it was after he took the email response from my inquiry to pick up his package. Your Petitioner should get the approval (NOA2) at his mailing address. I cant think of anything else that got mail so you should be good. I am assuming you did put your home address on there. For my fiance it was 2 different addresses which probably is the same for you. Mailing addresses are different from the physical address in Ghana right? They did not provide a space for both addresses so we attached a cover letter with our package explaining our mailing and physical address. To play it safe you can have your fiance call and explain the situation and maybe they can add your mailing address. Once approve just make sure you send email to the ghana embassy to inquire about the staus of package. Send your inquire to ivdvaccra@state.gov Here is a sample email of what to include:

I John Doe, the petitioner am writng to inquire to whether my I-129 petition for K1 Visa was receive at post: ACCRA, EMBASSY OF THE U.S VISA UNIT IN ACCRA GHANA? The case number is ACC0000000. The Beneficiary is Ama Love, Birthdate May 16, 1980.

Call 1-800-375-5283. You will need your case number, which can be found on the NOA1 letter. Also check this link out. http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.eb1d4c2a3e5b9ac89243c6a7543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=ddce0b89284a3210VgnVCM100000b92ca60aRCRD&vgnextchannel=ddce0b89284a3210VgnVCM100000b92ca60aRCRD

Your fiance should also email and ask them to email a copy of the pick up letter. My fiance never got the pickup letter from the embassy, but since I had asked them to send me a copy, I could tell him when to go and pick up his packet. (after the noa2 goes out and Ghana receives your case, they will send out a pick up letter telling you when to pick up your packet. However, mail in ghana being what it is, you may not receive this, especially since your physical address is on the application and the post office probably won't deliver there). It is very hard to get through on the phone to anyone at the embassy, but they normally do respond to email, even if sometimes it takes a while.
