Hi guys,

Thanks for taking time to read this.

My "i-129F petition" has been approved exactly a week ago.

I tried calling everywhere to get further instructions on what to do next, and nobody seems to have a clue.

Last thing i did was to call NVC and provided my receipt# and they stated that it was not in the system yet... and again the magic word "YOU HAVE TO WAIT!".

I was just wondering if you could instruct/assist me on what to do next. Will the Consulate(Bogota,Colombia), notify me or should i apply for the interview online, or will my fiance get a confirmation letter :s

I cannot really find any helpful info regarding this particular Consulate

You should read the guides and checkout the flowchart that VJ provides so you know exactly where you are in your process.

Once NVC receives it and forwards it to the consulate, they will contact you about what to do next. But you should do these things in advance, as sometimes they take awhile to get (birth certificates, police records, etc)

Also, if you haven't already, now is a good time to start frequenting the Colombia forum on VJ so you can ask embassy-specific questions of people who've been through the process, types of interview questions asked, etc. Good luck!

Send an email to NVC: NVCINQUIRY@state.gov

Subject must only contain your Case number.

in the message type what is recommended in the link above. It will take more than a week to process. I was told wait 15 days, but I got a response from NVC via email with a Bogota case number in 9 days.

Case Number: XXXXXXXXXXX

Petitioner's Name / Date of Birth: "FULL NAME" / DOB: "DATE OF BIRTH"

Beneficiary's Name / Date of Birth: "FULL NAME" / DOB: "DATE OF BIRTH"

My full name: "FULL NAME OF PERSON MAKING THE REQUEST"

Good morning,

"DATE OF NOA2", the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) mailed a notice that they have approved this I129F PETITION FOR FIANCE(E).

If all possible, would it be okay to request this information?

1. When in receipt of case file from USCIS (Vermont Service Center)

2. When the Bogota consulate case number is assigned and what is the number.

3. When the case file is sent to the Bogota consulate and the DHL tracking number.

4. When the case file is received at the Bogota consulate and it's logged into their system.

If you cannot, please feel free to send any status updates, relevant to my case to my e-mail below.

E-MAIL: "E-MAIL OF PERSON MAKING THE REQUEST"

And be prepared for "AP" Administrative Process!

There's a ton of info in the Colombia Club threads located in the Mexico, Latin & South America forum. You will find anything you're looking for there and if not, just simply ask and someone will chime in to see if they can help.

Please use English when you're not in the regional forums. It will get you the proper advice you're looking for.

If I understand what you're asking, you're wondering if you have to submit the I-129F form again after it's approved? No. Please check the guides and flowchart so you know what to do after your approval. Once it's approved, it's going to the embassy, and they have other requirements. I-134, birth certificate of beneficiary, police records, ongoing relationship proof, etc.

MY I-129F started getting processed on January 3rd, Its May 20, and I am flipping out. I did it with a very experienced immigration lawyer. Who told me not to give the Vermont service center the I-184 or the I-134 because I need joint-sponsors which I do have, but he said it was not necessary to give that to the Service center, once she arrives in USA I can do this. But i went onto the website for US Embassy in Bogota, and now they say it is required, what can I do? im freaking out.

You and your co-sponsor will have to fill out a I-134 form and add the supporting evidence for it. You should ask in the regional part of the forum http://www.visajourn...-south-america/ to see exactly what the Embassy in Bogota will ask from you (pay stubs, taxes, etc) after you received NOA 2, a lot of things become Embassy specific.

The I-184 is the one that you won't need to get done until your fiancee is in the States, and you both have married.

I suggest you read the Step by Step guide to get acquainted with the process, even if your lawyer is doing all the work; you'll want to know how things work to be on top on the situation.

Each consulate has their own specific forms and procedures. You need to know how it works and what is needed for Juarez.

You can call the NVC to see if it has arrived in Juarez. You need to get your CDJ case #, invoice # and beneficiary ID # from the NVC before you can fill out the DS-260: 603-334-0700

Juarez will send the USC and the beneficiary in Mexico a letter. Sometimes the letter does not reach the person in Mexico because of the crappy mail system there. If the only one that receives it is the USC, it can be mailed or scanned and emailed and printed out by the beneficiary in Mexico. It does not have to be the original.

The letter you receive points you to the sites where the instructions, forms and place to schedule your appointment and interview is. The letter is the only 'packet' you will receive. You should go to the links listed in the letter. The letter will be needed by the K-1 applicant at their ASC, medical and interview in Juarez, along with the confirmation page from the DS-260.

Here are the forms: http://ciudadjuarez.usconsulate.gov/fianceforms.html , instructions (very important to follow and they explain a lot): http://photos.state.gov/libraries/ciudadjuarez/231771/PDFs/packetk10412.pdf , and CDJ info: http://www.visajourney.com/consulates/index.php?ctry=Mexico&cty=Juarez

You fill out an I-134 and provide a letter from employer, latest tax transcript and a few months worth of your most recent pay stubs. You can check the example form here on VJ for filling it out: http://www.visajourney.com/examples/Form-I-134.pdf
