NVC Letter but no NoA2???

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So, here I am thinking that my fiancee' Teeway and I are smoothly progressing on our K1 Visa experience. This month we received the letter from the NVC stating that our application was accepted and moving on to the Manila Embassy. That letter was dated March 7th. It took a while for us to realize it, but shouldn't the NVC letter have arrived weeks AFTER the NoA2?

The reason I ask is because we have never received the NoA2. Judging from the NVC letter's date, the NoA2 date is probably mid-February. But the USCIS website still lists the application as untouched since November, and my mailbox has been empty. At what point should I contact the USCIS to ask where my NoA2 is? If they mailed it to me and it was lost along the way, can I simply request that it be re-sent? It felt so good to be moving along the process, but this has the two of us a little concerned.

You should call now, it's been over a month. You'll need the NOA2 for the adjustment of status.

Congratulations!

Don't worry, the NOA2 is on the way. We were approved on 2/29/12 and got NVC notice about a week and half later but no NOA2. NOA2 just arrived this week! In fact, packet 4 had already been mailed on March 13 to my fiance but takes about a month to receive. Your letter is on the way, just takes a little longer than the other.

Good luck with the rest of your journey.

I hope you're right! Further research (in other words, running every keyword search I can think of) shows that it isnt the rarest thing in the world for the USCIS to fail to deliver the NoA2. If that happens, from what I read, they're gonna demand another $340 for a copy I never received:(
