Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Mexico

I have read several posts on here regarding tracking the petition at the consulate. All I want to know is if they got it and what they are doing with it.I called the NVC and got the case number and the I D number but now dont know what to do with it.I also tried the DHL tracking trick and no luck.I read the timeline on here and it says about 58 days from receipt at the consulate until the interview that is leaving us only about 35 days to go Thanks for any help I just want to be ready and get this done.My lawyers answer is to sit and wait until she gets the 3 paket and then proceed but as all you know that are going through this being proactive is a must.Thank Y'all so much

The 58 days is an an approximation. You don't have 35 days left as a deadline of any source. Packet 3 will be a letter from the consulate, usually sent to both the US and the MX citizens, inviting you to set up an interview and providing you with a list of links (which is why it is known here as an "invitation letter"). If you go to the CDJ consulate page you will find Packet 3 (click on this link), which is a set of instructions on what to do after you get the invitation letter. With the NVC case number and ID, you can fill out the DS-260 online form which you will need to set up an appointment.

A lot of people in Mexico never get "Packet 3" because it is not a packet, not something you get through DHL, but a regular letter letting giving you the link I included in this post and inviting you to continue with the process. The American fiancé should be on the lookout for the letter from the American Consulate in Mexico.

call DoS, give the visa specialist your case number, and ask about the status of your case.

Good advice.

We got our NOA2 on Mon (26 Mar). I called NVC on Fri (30 Mar) and Mon (2 Apr), and was given the message that it hadn't arrived yet and could take 10-15 business days for the case to be received by NVC and assigned an embassy casefile #. Today, I was inspired after reading some posts in the K-1 Progress report forum about calling the NVC. I called, got a nice rep, after giving her our WAC#, names, and DOBs, she said that they had it and gave me my embassy casefile #...... :dance: She indicated that it could go out in a week, I will call back at the end of this week and inquire about the case status.

Thanks for the good info. :thumbs:
