After your case is approved, sent to NVC, and forwarded to the Embassy you are dealing with, that is when the Beneficiary will receive packet three, which gives her details about the police report, medical, forms, etc... once she has returned what she needs to return to the embassy from packet three, then there is packet four, and interview date, etc.... sent to Beneficiary. Each Consulate does things differently, so if your Consulate happens to have a website, I would go on there and take a look, maybe they have some information on there that may be helpful to you. Hope this helps

There are 5 major items that you will receive during the process:

#1: NOA1 letter (sent by USCIS) - Petitioner will get this in the mail. It just states that your case has been officially received, and that processing has started.

#2: NOA2 letter (sent by USCIS) - Petitioner will get this in the mail. It states that your case was approved by the USCIS, and that it will be forwarded to the National Visa Center (NVC).

#3: NVC letter (sent by NVC) - Petitioner will get this in the mail. This letter states that NVC processing is complete, and that your case will be forwarded to the consulate in India.

#4: Packet 3 (sent by consulate) - Beneficiary will get this in the mail. It includes forms that need to completed and returned to the consulate. It also contains information about some items that you need to gather for the interview process.

#5: Packet 4 (sent by consulate) - Beneficiary will get this in the mail. It will contain a letter that shows your fiance(e)'s official visa interview date. It will also contain forms and information for the medical exam, and information about other items that you will need to gather for the interview.

The petitioner may also receive a RFE (request for evidence) in the mail sometime before the NOA2 letter, but you will only get this if something is wrong or missing on your petition.

The consular items above may differ slightly depending on the country, but hopefully this will clarify the process a bit for you. There are lots of people going through the India consulate, so you may want to search their posts for India specific details.

Welcome to VJ. Good luck to you!!

shosurplussales,

There are no packets 1, 2, 3, and 4 anymore - haven't been for years.

You will still hear reference to packets 3 and 4 - old habits die hard. Packet 3 is more appropriately called the visa application information package, and packet 4 is more appropriately called the visa interview information package. Both are sent by the consulate to the visa applicant usually, in the case of a few consulates the visa application package may be sent to the petitioner.
