NVC number in hand

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So it has been a journey and I am so excited to see that it is moving along. My petition has left NVC and is now on its way to New Zealand, my question is How long will it take and just to verifiy what steps are next. I guess you can call me obsessed and ready for this process to be in the home stretch. I have really enjoyed everyones questions and experiences they have been major help when I have wanted to pull my hair out. I am so ready for my fiance to be here, we have set a date but i am worried about whether this process will be done in time for us. Our wedding date has been set for November 19th this year, Thank you for all replies :P

Congratulations on the case #. Depending on the embassy, it might take you 2-3 months to see your fiancee on US soil.

Good luck

Congratulations and all the best to you both!! (F)

Actually it shouldn't take too long. Have you looked at the Embassy Info and Embassy review (top of this page) for NZ. If you have the NVC number your fiance can go ahead with the medical and you can get the papers for packet 3 done. Packet 3 requirements are listed in their Embassy Info. Scheduling for the interview only takes between 1-3 weeks. So it happens quite quickly from now in NZ.

I see from your timeline you only waited just over 3 mths for the NOA2 which is good for Vermont... did you have an expedite?

Edited by Andie

Mar 2011 - After 5mths denied for lost docs - Attempts to follow up failed. Mar 18 2012 - I-129F sent - No sign of NOA1 but they have banked the check...Jul 24 - Update - USCIS has located our file
Infopass Apt - they sorted through everything - our 2011 and 2012 file keep getting mixed up - getting us a Case# (still waiting) Dec- Infopass Appt- expecting to get a case # in about a week ..Still no Case number

Mar 2013 Infopass - advised file was in a box somewhere,and it would be quicker for us to refile. Life gets in the way... New petition submitted July 2014 .

Yes I did look at NZ Embassey Info and reviews and they are very uplifting. I do have the NVC number, so what does he do with it, after he gets the forms. And also all the Doctors listed on the embassey info in Auckland he can just call make an appointment and take the form with him correct? I am getting excited since I think I can finally print the invites for the wedding.

As for our NOA2, no I didnt expedite, probably would have if I'd known lol. No i waited and waited and cried and wondered. And well it looks like we had a string of good luck. I have read the horror stories and it makes me worry about ours, and well then I found this site and I feel alot more educated on what to expect, and well not so alone.

Thank you for the info, I grately appreciate it :)

When the embassy receives a copy of the approval from NVC, they will forward packet 3 which is just a list of forms. They are the same as shown on their website http://www.visajourney.com/consulates/index.php?ctry=New%20Zealand&cty=Auckland

If you want to hurry things up your fiance can download the forms off 'Downloads' (top of this page)complete and send them to the Embassy. If you call one of the doctors on their list you can make an appointment for the medical as this has to be done before the interview anyway - they will need the NVC number. When you have the Packet 4 forms and information almost ready, call the Embassy and ask to make an appointment for an interview. Your fiance can do all that from the NZ end and will need some things from you. Read those and the Embassy Review as well it will give you an idea of the process.
