Does Fiancee Need My NOA2 for Interview?

22 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm frantically trying to assemble everything for my fiancee: tax returns, earnings, statements, etc. Before I send it to her do I need to wait for my own NOA2 to arrive? If she needs a copy of it then I will hold off sending the packet to her, however if the consulates don't require my NOA2 then I can send it to her now. Thanks for the help in advance.

They did not ask for my NOA2 nor did I ever need it at any point..You will need it for AOS, I suggest you just keep it!


My Journey:

We met through a study-abroad program in Shanghai, China in August of 2009

We got engaged March of 2010

I received my K1 VISA in 6 months (June-December 2010)

We were married 04/02/2011
I received my conditional 2-year greencard (AOS) in 2.5 months with no interview (April-June 2011)

Our son was born 02/03/2013

I received my masters degree in Speech-Language Pathology 04/17/2013

I received my 10-year greencard (ROC) in 3 months with no interview (March-June 2013)

My husband returned from deployment 06/20/2013

My naturalization journey took 4 months (April-August 2014)

I became a US citizen on 08/01/2014

Received passport in 3 weeks (regular processing)

Thank you, VJ! smile.png

According to the Guides, you are advised to send a copy of the NOA 2 along with the other documents even though it might not be needed. You might as well wait for your NOA 2 hard copy before sending the packet, as I believe you still have enough time before the interview

On second thought I'll just send the package to her. I don't think they require the original NOA2. When it arrives I'll just scan it and generate a PDF to email her. Then she can print it there.

Nobody will require your fiancée to submit the original NOA2.

Did the USCIS email you a NOA2? If so, you could use it. If not, just scan the snail mail version and email it to her. That would be fine too.

Your fiancée can be admitted to St. Lukes for her medical by using a copy of the NOA2 and the MNL case number from the NVC. The NOA2 doesn't have to be the original.

It's also possible, yet unlikely, that your fiancée could be asked to submit a copy of the NOA2 at the CFO seminar. It's one of those things where it's better to have it and not need it than it is to need it and not have it.

OK, thanks. Working on package all day and up until 1am now, but I guess I'll wait for the NOA2. It might still take a week to arrive. I'm so impatient...

Wait I'm confused.... According to your timeline you haven't even gotten an NOA1 yet. You have PLENTY of time for all this if that is the case

This is what I was going to suggest. Since you are only giving her a copy of the NOA2, why not scan the document and email it to her?

The OP has not updated their signature. They have received their NOA2.

He just hasn't updated his signature timeline, if you select timeline under his profile name it is correct.

Scanning the document would be best. I wouldn't take my chances mailing it, it might get lost or she might submit the original at one point, which might cause you a $300++ replacement fee with USCIS because you need it for AOS :)

Your timeline is unbelievably speedy and enviable. Did you expedite your petition or were you just lucky?


August 23, 2010 - I-129 F package sent via USPS priority mail with delivery confirmation.

August 30, 2010 - Per Department of Homeland Security (DHS) e-mail, petition received and routed to California Service Center for processing. Check cashed. I-797C Notice of Action by mail (NOA 1) - Received date 08/25/2010. Notice date 08/27/2010.

After 150 days of imposed anxious patience...

January 24, 2011 - Per USCIS website, petition approved and notice mailed.

January 31, 2011 - Approval receipt notice (NOA 2) received by mail. Called NVC, given Santo Domingo case number, and informed that petition was sent same day to consulate.

Called Visa Specialist at the Department of State every day for a case update. Informed of interview date on February, 16 2011. Informed that packet was mailed to fiance on February, 15 2011.

February 21, 2011 - Fiance has not yet received packet. Called 1-877-804-5402 (Visa Information Center of the United States Embassy) to request a duplicate packet in person pick-up at the US consulate in Santo Domingo. Packet can be picked-up by fiance on 02/28.

March 1, 2011 - Medical exam completed at Consultorios de Visa in Santo Domingo.

March 9, 2011 at 6 AM - Interview, approved!

March 18, 2011 - POE together. JFK and O'Hare airports. Legal wedding: May 16, 2011.

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.

-Henry David Thoreau

This subject matter was addressed in a previous post you had started. Excitement can make us miss the “pink” elephant in the room. (Smile) You do not send your original NOA2, never! As you have suggested, scanning and sending a PDF copy to your fiancée will suffice. When arriving at the St. Luke’s medical gate, many are checked for a copy of the NVC letter, copy of the NOA2, and/or printout of the email appointment letter from the embassy. As well, you will apply a copy of your NOA2 in both copies of your K-1 packet. Even when you file for your AOS, you will send only a copy of your NOA2. The original will be kept for the future AOS interview, if you incur such.

:thumbs: Thanks for bringing that up. I had forgotten about it. They will need to include a copy of the NOA2 in the AOS packet.
