Where is the KEV# generated?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I am new here and hope you can help me with my question. My fiance and I have a very long visa journey. Our NOA1 was dated August 10, 2011. We received our NOA2 only on March 01, 2012 - almost 7 month later. We were so excited about it and were looking forward to other processes to go much faster. But it seems like we have to do everything the hard way :( .

NVC hasn't yet sent my fiance any official papers with KEV#. He had to call them several times during this month and just a couple days ago over the phone they were able to give him our case#.

NVC told my finace that the reason it took them a while to get KEV# is that it is assigned by the local consulate in Ukraine after they receive the actual petition there. Now when we got the number we assumed that the consulate had all the necessary docs and I just needed to call them.

When I called them today they told me that the KEV number is valid but they don't have our case yet. And, after taking my contact info, asked me to call them in a month in case they don't get in touch with me by then.

Why so long? Isn't the process supposed to go much faster after the petition approval? And what's up with the KEV# - who generates it and who sends the official paper stating what our number is?

Thank you all for you help :) !

NVC assigns the KEV number, no one else. The NVC processing takes 1-8 weeks depending on if you get AP or not. Calling them is not usually very productive. The petitioner (US citizen) will get a letter from NVC when the case is sent to the consulate with the KEV number.
