Hello to all, Newbie here jest.gif

I just received a status updated for my I-129F petition being approved kicking.gif and the usual they send the notice with further instructions by mail. As I am really eager to know what, why, when, where.....I was wondering if anybody can tell me what are the usual instructions on the NOA2, or what is the exact process that follows.

Thank You and good luck to all.

Your petition will be (or already has been) forwarded to the NVC, where it will then be sent off to the consulate in the beneficiary's country. The consulate will be sending instructions to the beneficiary of what needs to be done before the interview stage.

I suggest checking out information about the London embassy, as well as going to their forums, so you'll know exactly what to expect. Read the guides!

Hi! Since you're a newbie, definitely check out this thread in the UK forum: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/350185-london-2012-k1s-from-noa2-to-interview-thread/

It tells you absolutely everything you need to know about what happens from now (NOA2) to your interview.

The NOA2 that you will receive will not tell you anything new. It's basically just the same as the email/status you received. In fact, your NOA2 hard copy will incorrectly tell you it's been forwarded to the consulate, when it actually goes to the NVC.

Here's a very brief overview of what you can expect. Read the thread in the UK forum for more info or ask questions there:

1. USCIS will forward your approved petition to the NVC. NVC will forward your case to the embassy. This can take about a month so basically, you wait 5ish months for the NOA2 and get all excited to wait another month LOL. But, you can save time in preparing for these next steps.

2. Call NVC in 15 business days to get your case number. You don't have to do this but people like to, to make sure everything was received on time and there's no other delays. There can be some hold ups at NVC, but it's not common.

3. After the NVC stage, the London embassy will physically mail a piece of paper to the beneficiary that says "Fill out these forms and send them back to us." They won't even mail you the actual forms, you have to go online and get them yourself. The only useful thing about this letter is that it has your case number and it means you can start moving forward. Also to save time, here is the website link that the letter will direct you to: http://london.usembassy.gov/iv_15.html Read through the process and you can even start filling out the forms already since they need your employment/school history, etc.

4. Once you have the "packet 3 letter" you can schedule your medical exam with Knightsbridge Doctors. You need the case number on the letter.

5. Mail back all the forms to the London embassy (you don't need all the supplemental stuff on the DS-156K or the photo, just mail back the forms).

6. If you haven't already done so, have the beneficiary get the "long form" of his/her birth certificate, police certificate, etc., all the supplemental things noted on the DS-156K.

7. Once all that's compiled and you have your medical exam date, send the DS-2001 with a cover letter to the London embassy.

8. The embassy will mail you back a letter with your interview date.
