Hi Dudes,

I got approval letter from USCIS on 27th March. I am waiting passionately for full 3 weeks. Now, 4th week started. I called NVC time to time but they always give the same answer: wait few more days. I just curious, if any of your USCIS approved case (about final week of March, 2012) has been entered into NVC. Just share your progress to make me more calm. Other wise it really hard and suffocating.......I wish no body need to wait like this....

I'm still waiting for the case number as well. Hmm.

I got the following message on email today early in the morning.

Dear Sir/Madam:

The National Visa Center (NVC) received your inquiry regarding the immigrant visa petition: WAC.................

The NVC recently received this petition. The appropriate agent (applicant, petitioner, or attorney) will receive instructions for the further processing of this petition within 6 to 8 weeks.

ABC.....

Do you guys have idea how many days it takes to get entry receipt number and letter with choice of agent form?

Got the email but still explaining may take 6-8 weeks to get instructions for the further processing. What' that mean?

Making me crazy.....forced to wait me......God bless us...

We got out NOA2 on the 16th of March and I received a letter on the 17th of April with all of the numbers. I never called them because no one else on here with the same NOA2 date as me was getting anywhere in the first couple of weeks and then I went to visit my hubby, the letter was in my mailbox when I got home. I know this is only a single case, and I know how hard it is to wait, but I'm sure you'll have everything you need from them in less time than they say. I would be careful about calling too frequently, because I've heard a lot of people saying there are some pretty grouchy people answering the phones at the NVC and it wouldn't surprise me if getting the wrong person on the line could wind up slowing things down.
