I can't believe it! I thought I was being so impatient....I received my NOA2 on 26 September (hard copy) and thought it would be weeks before I heard from the NVC about her visa. So this morning before I went to work, I emailed them asking if they had received my I-129F from Vermont. So I go check my mail a few minutes ago and there is a letter from them......stating that in one week the Embassey in Manila will receive my package and that my case was approved!!!! The letter was dated 2 October! Wow that was fast! I just wish I knew if she would be here before Christmas or not, but more importantly if her interview will occur before Christmas, as I am just about ready to buy a plane ticket there to spend Christmas with her. Wow, wow, wow!!! I read this forum 2-3 times a day, and I just want to say that my heart goes out to all of you that are still waiting.....I know it will happen! Take care all and God Bless! Stacy

Congratulations! That's fast!

P.S. NVC doesn't deal with K-1 visas and they don't approve K-1 cases. They get the cases from the service centers, run security checks, assign a new case number and forward them to the embassy. Your fiance will have her visa after the interview (hopefully).


I only offer advice - not even legal. Just the plain and simple kind.
