Hello VJ-ers!

I want to send out an inquiry to the NVC to follow up with them to see if they have received my NOA2 and if I can obtain my case number so that I may follow up with the Manila consulate when necessary.

I went to the NVC site, and it states to send and inquiry you have to put your case number. To my knowledge, I don't have a case number.

Advice anybody?

Samples?

Help?!

According to your timeline, you got your NOA2 almost a month ago. I would say Manila has had it for some time. The NVC had our package 5 days after we got the approval e-mail and the consulate got it about 5 days after that.

We got our NVC letter approximately 1 month after the approval e-mail.

You can call the NVC and ask them what your case number is...you will need your NOA1 receipt number.

(603) 334-0700

Hours: Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM to 12:00 PM (EST). Best time to call is 7:30 AM to 9:00 AM and 10:00 PM to 12:00 PM

Per our conversation yesterday I had No MNL#. So I called this morning the NVC. I did'nt have to wait long on the phone. As I stated yesterday, the operator asked if I was the Petitioner. (I'm still wary of them giving information to the beneficiary) She asked for the NOA2 Reciept #, my date of birth, her date of birth, addresses, her e-mail address and gave the information. The MNL # was issued July 6th. I never knew this... As a post indicated yesterday from a member, they will not even let you know. That is true I see.

The operator payed close attention to every answer I provided to be sure I was who I claimed to be. It appears CSC is taking 3 weeks or less for a MNL#. You may already have one issued. As the Petitioner in your case I don't know a trick to get the # without being sneaky about it.. There were posts yesterday that added. Have you tried those options?

If it were me, I would call again. If it's been a month since you got the NOA2 approval, then they have had more than ample time to forward the case. What did you ask them? Wouldn't hurt to e-mail too.

Our NOA2 was from 6/6. We called the NVC at 6/19, they said before 15 workdays after NOA2 they would not even look at our case. We called 7/5 again, they gave us our new casenumber and told us that our petition has left NVC to the consulate on 6/27. On 7/6 I had packet 3 in my mail. It took exactly 4 weeks (we were at CSC)
