K1-NOA2- NVC: Call or Wait for notice (Vancouver)

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

K1 beneficiary in VANCOUVER overloaded with information from all over the world...

NOA2: Received 10-May-2012 CONSULATE: Vancouver

Question: Wait for NVC notice or call?

Answer: Wait or Call (Please explain why that's your answer)

*My fiance, the USC, is unable to make any calls do to his job. *

Before you answer, understand that I DO search this site (every forum, portal, etc...) before I post, but sometimes I just can't find the answers I'm looking for.

Hoping to hear from K1-CANADIANS in Vancouver. People in the exact same boat. Don't be offended if this isn't you, and I do appreciate all that share. It can be a little overwhelming when information is filtered in from all over the world, and you just want to hear from people that have been there done that. Walked in your shoes.

I've messaged a few "peeps" regarding this questions. Now I'm putting it out there for the rest.

Be gentle. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't bother replying.

Cheers & Happy Journeys

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Canada
Timeline

I called that number and it is NOT automated 24/7. It kept telling me to hold and hold some more before I would get transferred to a representative. Eventually I emailed them because on USA's travel website for NVC info, they say email is preferred method of contact.

I decided to call the NVC after all. ( 4 min call .laughing.gif ) *11pm EST* less wait time...

Gave the NVC lady my petition info....then she asked me to read her the first paragraph of my notice...

( "The above petition has been approved, and forwarded to the listed consulate". ) She said, "Looks like your petition was sent directly to the consulate from here. Contact the consulate (in Vancouver for me) 15 days from the notice date."

Just the answer I was expecting. wow.gif

So, according to my NOA2 & NVC lady, I should follow up by calling the (Vancouver ) Consulate regarding my VISA.

(15 days from the notice date =Friday June 1st.)

The notice also says,,, "Please contact the consulate with any question about visa issuance".

(I didn't read her that part. I kind of felt silly for calling at that point, but she was nice).

Well see what the mailman has for me in a few weeks...

Cheers

Friday June 1: 15 business days later.... from NOA2. Nothing in the mail.

Saturday June 2: Sent emails to the US Consulate in Vancouver & the NVC.

Monday June 3: Email reply from Vancouver Consulate; "Nothing received from NVC".

Evening time, called the NVC: Asked for status of file. Case # given.

Advised NVC sent petition to US consulate in Vancouver, Friday May 31st.

So... now I have my Case # and no letter. Now what?
