CSC to NVC

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there

I was just wondering how long it takes to send your approved I-129F from the CSC on to the NVC? On the K1 flow chart it says that it should be about 2 weeks from when you recieve your NOA2, but we've still not heard anything and its been 3 and a half weeks. My fiancee called the NVC yesterday and they said to wait 90 days from when we recieved the NOA2 and if we've still not heard anything then chase it up then! Bit of a differnce between 2 weeks and 90 days so was just wondering how long we should expect to wait before it arrives there? I'm sure everything is fine but I'm trying to pencil in a rough wedding date and it's not easy when you haven't a clue when your visa will be issued!

Any help will, as ever, be gratefully recieved.

James

cool - so theres no need to worry as yet then.

though looking on the boards at the moment there seems to be some oddness going on with the NVC at the moment so I won't hold my breath.

Thanks for your help.

The date on the NOA2 for how valid it is, if you should come down to that date it will automatically get extended at the US Embassy so you do not have to worry about it.
