You can wait a week and then call the NVC to see if they've received your petition. The petition goes to the NVC before going to the Embassy. If they have the petition they will give you the case number if you ask. They might have sent it off to the Embassy by then, maybe not. I would call once a week to see if it's gone to the Embassy.

Get you papers together for Packet #3

VSC may be quick with an NOA2 approval but we all go through NVC. Many CSC approvals are now in limbo again. Why? no one knows. Supposed to be sent to NVC and then our beneficiaries embassy? Here's the post:


Look at Andy's timeline:

10/03/06- official NOA2 date

10/04/06- e-mail NOA2 approved!!!!!!

10/05/06- NVC received

10/06/06- NVC forwarded to Poland Embassy

Do you feel like we all go through NVC at the same pace? Are VSC petitioners cheating again as it passes through NVC?
