Hey all

I sent out my 129f on April 10th, and I have yet to get a text message. After looking at many vj members timelines it seems as if it is taking longer than usual for me to recieve my noa1. Is this normal?

Text messages are unreliable. NOA1s can take up to 30 days to receive. They will be dated for the day it was received at the service center even though it may be a month before you get the letter.

If you are looking at timelines you will see something like "Petition sent April 10th" and then an NOA1 date of April 14th. And you THINK, "hey that guy got his in 4 days"

No he didn't. But that was the date on the NOA1. He didn't get it for maybe 3 weeks. Maybe 1 week, maybe 2 weeks.

VERMONT! I Reject Your Reality...and Substitute My Own!

Did you get tracking on your package? If you sent it through UPS, DHL or FedEx it should have a tracking number, in which case you can see when your package was received.

Either way, like Gary said it can take up to 30 days so there's absolutely no need to panic.
