A Snail Carries Your Petition to the NVC

Time it takes for US Citizen to travel over 20,000 miles round trip, gather required docuents, & send packet to Vermont Service Center via Dallas Lockbox: Less than 2 weeks

Time it takes for USCIS Vermont Service Center to send your mail 204 miles to the NVC in an adjacent state: New Hampshire, NVC: 15 Business days (3 weeks)

Ok... Even though this is not an incredibly long time & I'm not complaining; Just wondering what really takes them so long just to receive petitions? :lol:

Yes, no need for you to complain. You got your petition approved in 8 days. Most of us must wait 5, 6, 7 months for petition approval. Good luck in the next chapter of your "journey".

Daryll...

Now is a good time to get ready for the next step in the visa process: read this letter from the U.S. Embassy Manila.

This letter is the snail mail the U.S. Embassy Manila eventually will send to your sweetheart. However, don't wait around for it to arrive because it could delay your case by a month or more. Instead, you and your sweetie can start preparing now for the next steps.

Yeah, the average waiting time was supposed to be 7 days per VJ stats. Whatever happened to that :unsure:... Anyways, we got the same approval date as OP, been calling NVC every day since tuesday, nothing so far... I guess they really want to cut the shipping costs down by compiling all the petitions into one bulk and sending them as such.

I hope our bulk is on the way.

Cheers!

Another day passes, still no sign of the petition being transferred to the NVC. USCIS mailing room staff is surely on a hiatus :whistle:

I read they just switched from their automated system and things @ the NVC probably move a little slower now because of it. It's taking people on average 2 weeks to get their case received by the NVC and another 2 weeks just to get a case # for some petitions apparently. Hopefully for the K-1 it doesn't stretch that long I was hoping for it to be forwarded quickly, a simple mail relay point. Still hoping for a smooth remainder of the process :whistle:
