HI!

I'm now waiting for my hard copy NOA2.

Once I receive it should I call NVC to get my case number?

And after they give it to me do I hunt down the forms I need myself? The info out there is very confliting... Some says not to send any forms until they have sent them to you first...others say not to wait on the NVC. I need someone who got from NVC to consulate of Haiti very quickly (or other consulates) to tell me exactly what they did.

Please help! :blink: :blink: :wacko: :wacko: :wacko: :wacko: :wacko: :wacko:

I would suggest you join the May 2012 NVC thread. There is a FAQ in the first post that is very helpful. Lately it has been taking about 3-4 weeks between NOA2 and the NVC assigning a case number. I would suggest you read through that FAQ and work on collecting the required documents for the AOS and the IV packets.

You need to wait 30 days between NOA 2 and first contact with NVC.

I disagree with the statement, "need to wait for 30 days."

OP, allow at least one week for your file to be sent to the NVC, after that week, start calling the NVC to see if a case number has been assigned.

Im not sure about haiti... But in general the only thing you wait for is your cae number. Everyday you'll have to call them eventually they will give you a case number. You then should ask the operator for your invoice ID and give your email address and the email address of the beneficiary.next send your ds-3032via e-mail format(see this website for more detail) and then in a few days they'll send the AOD bill...you pay it. In like 2 days or so the paying portal will show PAID.

Then you send completed AOS and in a few days the IV bill will be ready ,pay it. When the portal shows IV PAid,then you send your DS-230
