Ok, now that I've kind of gotten my bearings and emotions in check. Could someone please tell what to do next? Will instruction be on the NOA2 hardcopy? How long should I wait until I call NVC to get info and then DR embassy?

Congrats on your approval!!! Below are the steps you need to take. Be Proactive! Don’t wait for anything!

After your case gets to the NVC and forwarded to the Embassy, you must begin gathering evidence for your case and the "required documents" needed for the Interview.

The current wait time for interview to be scheduled could be 2-3 months.

The Embassy will then send the beneficiary (Dominican born) a list of instructions similar to this one:

http://santodomingo.usembassy.gov/k1-k2_instructions.html

Additionally, follow these steps here. It's a lot but, its worth it.

After you receive your NOA2 (approving your I-129f petition), you will receive a letter from the NVC telling you that they are processing your case and it will mailed to the Embassy in Santo Domingo. During this time your case is examined then repackaged and mailed to the Embassy.

To get valid information just wait 1-2 weeks and call (toll-free) the Visa Specialist (Department of State) in Washington D.C. Call 202-663-1225. Press Option 1 then Option 0 to speak to a visa specialist. (Do not waste your money calling the Embassy). They will tell you when your case was mailed and when your interview (cita) date is.

Also keep checking the Interview list to see when your interview is. Just type in the Case # that was printed on your NVC Notice (SDO2012...):

http://santodomingo.usembassy.gov/scheduled_appointments.html

Your packet will be mailed by the mail service in Dominican Republic (Inposdom). Which may take forever (or it may never arrive at all). There website is below:

http://inposdom.gob.do/

Just keep calling and checking the interview list. Since some people never receive their packets, you need to be proactive! If you have not received anything around 2 weeks before your interview, call the Embassy and schedule a day to pick it up before your interview. The medical cannot be done if you do not receive your appointment letter that comes inside of Packet 4. Also, there is no way to track your case online at this point. So keep calling and checking the interview list is your best options. Santo Domingo Embassy contact info:

http://santodomingo.usembassy.gov/iv-contact-e.html

Financial Docs:

Once your NOA2 arrives, you need to complete the affidavit and get a letter from your current employer (stating you have a job with them and you make $$$ a year), also you need a letter from your bank (stating how much money you deposited in the past year), and also 3 months of your most recent pay stubs and last 3 years of tax returns.

There are 2 affidavits (I-134 and I-864). The I-134 is very easy to complete and is usually needed for the K1 interview. The I-864 takes longer to complete and more evidence and its usually only needed for AOS but sometimes asked for during the K1 interview. For more information on the Affidavit of support, see the link below:

http://www.visajourney.com/content/support

To be safe just do them both and prepare. When your fiance(e) gets his/ her Interview Packet, it will tell you what forms you need to bring to the interview. For now I would just complete them both and wait until 2 weeks before the interview date to get a letters from your employer and bank.

Also, your Dominican born fiance/fiancee needs to begin completing the forms (you can practice at this point and finalize later; they are available online), get their birth certificate (long/extensa version), passport photos, etc.

My fiancee and I did all of these things while waiting. Try not to drive yourself crazy. Just use this to prepare. Also gather all the evidence you will need for your interview (phone records, email, pics, travel documents, etc). The last thing my fiancee and I did was update our forms. She got her police report (30 days before her interview date), reprinted visa forms, and I updated my income/employment documents.

I had everything done 2 months before the interview but had to get new letters (dates closer to the interview). Some interviews are scheduled much faster than others so you may have less time.

For the NVC:

Give them 7 - 10 days 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.

Congratulations!! The packet will tell you everything you need but if they do you like they did me and my fiance. They sent me the packet and we were waiting on him to get one but they never sent it. We called and they said they always send the packet to the petitioner. The packet will tell you everything you need. 1. Will be an official letter saying your appointment time and date. You need this letter for your fiance to take to the medical examine which should be took at least a week before the interview that is how long it takes for the results to come back. Make sure your fiance takes his passport to the medical examine. You will have to go to the banco popular bank and pay first also. Also take like three passport sized photos to the medical exam. You will need the affadavit of support which is the I-864, they did not look at it but it is good to have it just in case. You basically need to make a duplicate packet of everything you sent in for the petition to take to the interview. Make sure you take your passport also, cause you will need to be there with your fiance.

Do not stress out about it. I just went through it last month and let me tell you I was stressing very bad about it. But we did what we had to and are now waiting for them to send his visa and passport to him which is taking forever.

Congrats on your approval!!! Below are the steps you need to take. Be Proactive! Don’t wait for anything!

After your case gets to the NVC and forwarded to the Embassy, you must begin gathering evidence for your case and the "required documents" needed for the Interview.

The current wait time for interview to be scheduled could be 2-3 months.

The Embassy will then send the beneficiary (Dominican born) a list of instructions similar to this one:

http://santodomingo.usembassy.gov/k1-k2_instructions.html

Additionally, follow these steps here. It's a lot but, its worth it.

After you receive your NOA2 (approving your I-129f petition), you will receive a letter from the NVC telling you that they are processing your case and it will mailed to the Embassy in Santo Domingo. During this time your case is examined then repackaged and mailed to the Embassy.

To get valid information just wait 1-2 weeks and call (toll-free) the Visa Specialist (Department of State) in Washington D.C. Call 202-663-1225. Press Option 1 then Option 0 to speak to a visa specialist. (Do not waste your money calling the Embassy). They will tell you when your case was mailed and when your interview (cita) date is.

Also keep checking the Interview list to see when your interview is. Just type in the Case # that was printed on your NVC Notice (SDO2012...):

http://santodomingo.usembassy.gov/scheduled_appointments.html

Your packet will be mailed by the mail service in Dominican Republic (Inposdom). Which may take forever (or it may never arrive at all). There website is below:

http://inposdom.gob.do/

Just keep calling and checking the interview list. Since some people never receive their packets, you need to be proactive! If you have not received anything around 2 weeks before your interview, call the Embassy and schedule a day to pick it up before your interview. The medical cannot be done if you do not receive your appointment letter that comes inside of Packet 4. Also, there is no way to track your case online at this point. So keep calling and checking the interview list is your best options. Santo Domingo Embassy contact info:

http://santodomingo.usembassy.gov/iv-contact-e.html

Financial Docs:

Once your NOA2 arrives, you need to complete the affidavit and get a letter from your current employer (stating you have a job with them and you make $$$ a year), also you need a letter from your bank (stating how much money you deposited in the past year), and also 3 months of your most recent pay stubs and last 3 years of tax returns.

There are 2 affidavits (I-134 and I-864). The I-134 is very easy to complete and is usually needed for the K1 interview. The I-864 takes longer to complete and more evidence and its usually only needed for AOS but sometimes asked for during the K1 interview. For more information on the Affidavit of support, see the link below:

http://www.visajourney.com/content/support

To be safe just do them both and prepare. When your fiance(e) gets his/ her Interview Packet, it will tell you what forms you need to bring to the interview. For now I would just complete them both and wait until 2 weeks before the interview date to get a letters from your employer and bank.

Also, your Dominican born fiance/fiancee needs to begin completing the forms (you can practice at this point and finalize later; they are available online), get their birth certificate (long/extensa version), passport photos, etc.

My fiancee and I did all of these things while waiting. Try not to drive yourself crazy. Just use this to prepare. Also gather all the evidence you will need for your interview (phone records, email, pics, travel documents, etc). The last thing my fiancee and I did was update our forms. She got her police report (30 days before her interview date), reprinted visa forms, and I updated my income/employment documents.

I had everything done 2 months before the interview but had to get new letters (dates closer to the interview). Some interviews are scheduled much faster than others so you may have less time.

http://santodomingo.usembassy.gov/k1-k2_instructions.html

Additionally, follow these steps here. It's a lot but, its worth it.

After you receive your NOA2 (approving your I-129f petition), you will receive a letter from the NVC telling you that they are processing your case and it will mailed to the Embassy in Santo Domingo. During this time your case is examined then repackaged and mailed to the Embassy.

To get valid information just wait 1-2 weeks and call (toll-free) the Visa Specialist (Department of State) in Washington D.C. Call 202-663-1225. Press Option 1 then Option 0 to speak to a visa specialist. (Do not waste your money calling the Embassy). They will tell you when your case was mailed and when your interview (cita) date is.

Also keep checking the Interview list to see when your interview is. Just type in the Case # that was printed on your NVC Notice (SDO2012...):

http://santodomingo.usembassy.gov/scheduled_appointments.html

Your packet will be mailed by the mail service in Dominican Republic (Inposdom). Which may take forever (or it may never arrive at all). There website is below:

http://inposdom.gob.do/

Just keep calling and checking the interview list. Since some people never receive their packets, you need to be proactive! If you have not received anything around 2 weeks before your interview, call the Embassy and schedule a day to pick it up before your interview. The medical cannot be done if you do not receive your appointment letter that comes inside of Packet 4. Also, there is no way to track your case online at this point. So keep calling and checking the interview list is your best options. Santo Domingo Embassy contact info:

Financial Docs:

Once your NOA2 arrives, you need to complete the affidavit and get a letter from your current employer (stating you have a job with them and you make $$$ a year), also you need a letter from your bank (stating how much money you deposited in the past year), and also 3 months of your most recent pay stubs and last 3 years of tax returns.

There are 2 affidavits (I-134 and I-864). The I-134 is very easy to complete and is usually needed for the K1 interview. The I-864 takes longer to complete and more evidence and its usually only needed for AOS but sometimes asked for during the K1 interview. For more information on the Affidavit of support, see the link below:

To be safe just do them both and prepare. When your fiance(e) gets his/ her Interview Packet, it will tell you what forms you need to bring to the interview. For now I would just complete them both and wait until 2 weeks before the interview date to get a letters from your employer and bank.

Also, your Dominican born fiance/fiancee needs to begin completing the forms (you can practice at this point and finalize later; they are available online), get their birth certificate (long/extensa version), passport photos, etc.

My fiancee and I did all of these things while waiting. Try not to drive yourself crazy. Just use this to prepare. Also gather all the evidence you will need for your interview (phone records, email, pics, travel documents, etc). The last thing my fiancee and I did was update our forms. She got her police report (30 days before her interview date), reprinted visa forms, and I updated my income/employment documents.

I had everything done 2 months before the interview but had to get new letters (dates closer to the interview). Some interviews are scheduled much faster than others so you may have less time.
