NOA2 and day of the week

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Every time I get an email i have to look to see if it is about our NOA2.

If you signup for email notification does the email come out anntime of the day or only 9a to 5p.

Has any body tracked what days of the week the diffrent locations send out NOA2s. Do they process and issue NOA2 7 days a week. How about Saturday.

I need to relax and take a break from the constant checking and just wondering what days or times I can stop looking and relax.

From what I've noticed on the boards and in my own experience, the email notifications are computer generated and go out at a time when internet activity is low, specifically between 12 and 1 AM. That doesn't mean they don't come out at other times, just that a bulk of them go out at that time. Being government employees, I don't think they work on weekends. But, again because the notifications are computer generated, it may be that notifications go out 7 days a week.

And to answer your questions, the VSC and CSC are open Mon-Fri 8am to 4:30pm. No work is done on the weekend and any holiday. Your "Approval Notification" can come at any time due to the USCIS website not being updated as frequently as the "Approval Notifications" are being sent out. It is very possible that you can receive your I-797C Notice of Action stating that your petition has been approved many days before your status is even updated. The best way to know when your case will be approved is to be best friends with the person adjucating your case. If not, then it is the slowest turtle race you will ever experience and also this turtle race is in a pitch black tunnel.

A NOA2 DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN THAT IT IS APPROVED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wish people would frickin stop calling a approval notification a NOA2. If you get a RFE, then guess what? The RFE will be your NOA2! and then your ("APPROVAL NOTIFICATION") will be your ("NOA3").

You are technicaly correct. I have seen both and the RFE is a Notice of Action. I only use the tern NOA2 because that is what VJ uses on our timelines. If you have a complaint with the term NOA2 for the approval take it up with The Visa Journey web site.

Humm, from my point of view you are technicaly wrong. The term ''NOA2'' is used here to make it simple for members to understand the ''progress of the process''. If it wasn't ''approved'', the only option/term would be denied, right? :huh:

The second point on your text, is also wrong for me, the RFE. Request for Evidence does NOT mean an approval as you stated, if you send the wrong evidence, you'll be denied. RFE IS Request for Evidence, and that's it. Why let a simple term bother so much? If you do not want to call it as NOA2, then don't. But for me is the best term, the one that made me understand better the steps on this process. Anyway...

OP - I got my NOA2 on the 5th of July (tuesday), right after the holiday, and was around 12pm when I saw it. I checked the website and my case status and was there. Later when I already had called my fiancé to tell him the news, as soon as I hung up the phone they sent out the text and email for him, but we first found out on the website. It is not accurate, some doesn't get it via text/email, some doesn't have the website updated at all, some only gets the letter in the mail days later. Good luck to you! :thumbs:
