Question: (I do not have NOA2 yet.) Just preparing for the next step.

How soon should the interview for manila be set up after the NOA2 approval? Should it be set up immediately after NOA2? or after it has left the NVC? What is the best time to schedule? Should it be 6 weeks after NOA2 or when for date to interview in manila?

schedule the interview, online or by calling, about a week after the physical petition arrives at the Embassy from NVC.

Here is how it is working for me...

I called NVC about 10 days after the NOA2. They were able to give me the case number. As of now my physical file left NVC to Manila on May the 13th. I still am unable to schedule with the embassy. The online page does not reconize her case number and all calls to embassy indicate they still have not receive the file yet so it has not been input into the system yet, going on 18 days.

But we were able to make payment at BPI with the case number and passport number only. I called again to embassy and payment is acknowledged and activated, but still cannot schedule, either online or by phone due to case file not in the system yet.

This is my experience so far.

In my case i got my NOA2 last May5 and i just received my packet today from embassy, so, its 28days since my NOA2, plus the medical time that will take 2-3days and the result of the medical is most likely 1week after then 1day for the CFO seminar..i didnt sched my interview yet coz i want to wait for the result of the medical in order not to have a conflict between the result and the interview date...after the medical result then i will sched my interview anytime.

total time from NOA2 up to INTERVIEW time could be 7-8weeks...

Have you gotten appointment date for your interview yet? I filed Form I-130 for my wife on August 29th here at the USCIS in Manila as I also have resident status as an American Citizen living here in the Phil and received our Notice of Approval (NOA2) today. It was actually approved on Sept 18th, 14 business days after the initial filing. Just trying to prepare for the next step myself. Direct Consular Filing seems to be very fast.


August 29, 2012: Filed Form I-130 DCF Manila

September 18, 2012: Notice of Approval, USCIS Manila, Forwarded to Immigration Visa Section, Manila

September 20, 2012: Assigned Case # at Immigrant Visa Section,IV Manila sent DS230 and DS2001 to residence here.

October 10, 2012: Called Immigrant Visa section at USEM, they had received the emailed scanned copies and gave a green light to make interview appointment date. Did that online. Interview set for November 14.

when I first saw this thread, I was wondering why...... then noticed it was over a year old. also, it was unrelated to DCF. suggest you start a new thread with any questions you have about DCF.
