Got approved on 5/23. NOA 2 hardcopy received a week later. But NVC has no record of my case (after automatic phone call). Don't want to talk to a person yet because they'll probably tell me to wait 3 weeks.

Anybody out there with same situation? Two weeks after NOA2, is that realistic?

And should i call embassy to see if they received the case by mail (DHL) or electronic?

Thanks for your input.

Hey, I waited 4 weeks for mine to arrive, so no, the wait is not unrealistic at all.

HOWEVER...while it sounds nice to just go through the automated message, it actually is hardly ever kept up to date anyway (at least in my case it wasn't, and that is very recent).

So...talk to a live person anyway and you might actually find out that the petition has already arrived. I remember calling the automated message again after I knew it had arrived AND had been shipped off to the consulate, and the message STILL said they had no record of it. Dumb system.

P.S. When they receive it, make sure you get the:

1) Case #

2) Invoice # and

3) Beneficiary ID #

They won't mention the last two unless you specifically ask for it, but you will HAVE to have those numbers for filling paperwork out not too long from now.

Oh and yes, you can try calling the embassy, but you might have to try several different numbers before you find the right person to talk with. That part would depend on which country you are dealing with, and it's worth a shot to call and find out. But the NVC will get the petition first, then a few days later you can call them again to see if they've forwarded it to the consulate. My petition was sent by NVC and received by Consulate on the same day, so now they sometimes send them electronically.

Hi, Speak to an operator to check on your case. Have your case number, petitioner & beneficiary full name and date of birth for each. They can then give you info about your case. At NVC the operator's were very nice and helpful and I called often lol...Good Luck :)

I got NOA on May 20th and called the NVC last night. They told me to email them and attach my approval letter so I did and I got a response today saying they:

Dear Sir/Madam:

Please be advised that the National Visa Center (NVC) has received your

inquiry and the attached I-797 Notice of Action - Approval Notice.

Unfortunately, we do not have record of receiving your approved petition

from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. The NVC will contact

USCIS on your behalf for information on the location of this petition.

; My NOA2 + NVC + Packet 3 sent= ALL IN TWO WEEKS!!

NVC Received my petition 6 days after NOA2, and sent out to Amsterdam the next day..

My tip: don't wait two weeks, call 1 week after receiving NOA2!!!

When you call (1: English, 2: Spanish, and then "5" to speak to an operator), you need to tell your and your fiance(e) date of birth and name and your receipt number of your NOA1.

Ask if they have received your petition, if so, what is your new case number and ask if they have it sent out yet, if not, ask when they might send it out :whistle:
