NOA2 Approved!!

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Holy cow, it can't be so......I saw that my NOA2 was sent today with the word typed as "Approved". :D

What should I expect next? I haven't received the instructions yet, but do I start gathering the documents for the I-134 form and then send it to my fiance in Taiwan with more photos, a letter of intent to marry, a copy of the 129F package, and a copy of the NOA1 and the NOA2? Do I have to do anything else?

Will the US Consulate in Taiwan contact my fiance once they receive the package and then schedule an interview and a medical with her?

Also, my fiance is going to China from mid March to mid April for a business trip. Do some countries have a timeframe of when a medical or interview has to be scheduled by? Should this be a problem?

Thanks for any help!!

WOOO HOOOOO!

EVERYTHING IS WITH THE HELP OF GOD. HE NEVER LET US DOWN. HAVE FAITH IN YOUR GOD!!!! I LOVE YOU BABY FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!!


“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” - Corinthians

Congrats!! :dance: :dance:

Here is some contact info for NVC

For the NVC:

Give them 7 - 10 days AFTER your approval from USCIS before calling. Call after 4:45 PM eastern time for shorter wait times

K1's are not tracked through the AVR, ever. They are processed like an immigrant visa, but they are NOT immigrant visas, so they fall into a completely different class of their own. Therefore you need an operator. To get there:

1-603-334-0700 Operator assistance is available Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM to 12:00 AM (Eastern Time)

Press 1 for English

Press 5 for an operator

NVC CONTACT INFORMATION:

Website: www.immigrantvisas.state.gov

E-mail: NVCInquiry@state.gov

REQUIRED SECURITY INFORMATION:

You are required to provide the following security information with each inquiry to receive a case specific response:

* NVC Case Number or USCIS Receipt Number (Place in the subject line of the e-mail).

* Petitioner's name and date of birth.

( NOTE: If the visa petition is employment-based, include the employer's company/organization name instead of the petitioner's name and date of birth. )

* Principal Applicant's name and date of birth.

* If you are an attorney, include your name and the name and address of your law office.
