I emailed USCIS office in Mexico city asking where my NOA1 was and they answered:

Dear Sir/ Madam,

Thank you for your e-mail.

Our office received this I-130 on May 4, 2011. It has been granted. We mailed you a written notice on May 6, 2011. We mailed it via regular mail, you should receive it any time soon.

Regards,

USCIS/pfcg

It's been over 5 weeks and there's nothing. I already asked the mailman, the mail office and neighbors and no one knows where my NOA1 is. I'm frustrated, what now?? Should I freak out or wait for NOA2??

Thanks.

:time: Did you do DCF? (Direct Consular Filing) It sounds like it, and that's a whole 'nother ball o'wax that I personally have no clue about. If so, ask the mods to move your thread to the appropriate forum, as you'll get /much/ better help in there than in the IR1/CR1 forum. :)

Holding my nose and jumping off the cliff.. hope I don't hit any rocks in the water.

We didn't do DCF, we send the I 130 by DHL. Is a different process??

do you need the approval letter? Suggest you call up CDJ, ask for the 'next step' with submitting the DS-230 to them.

or explain what 'granted' means, in this context.

The NOA-1 is a good thing to have, even if it is just a formality. However, it's not necessary to have. I've been living in Mexico City since December, although I've been directing all of the mail through my address in Texas. I personally haven't seen the original copies of either NOA 1 or NOA 2 forms from CIS and we're totally through the CIS process, and almost out of the NVC woods. If you signed up for electronic notifications, those are pretty much reliable.

You can continue to check the status of your case at the USCIS website, and being proactive on their website could potentially cut a month or so out of the waiting time for your NOA 2 to through the Mexican mail. Correos de Mexico is complete garbage, and every package is a gamble. Better not to risk it and use the electronic notifications!

EDIT: Ok, I'm tired. I just realized that you filed here in Mexico City and not with USCIS. My post does not apply to you're case and I feel about 2 inches tall.
