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.

If you look around the forum, it's taking (ridiculously) long to transfer petitions from CSC to NVC and to the consulate. Even in some cases it's going directly from CSC to the Embassy. I'm not at this stage yet, but I have seen a few posts about people calling CSC, the NVC, and their Embassy and busting some skulls to at least see where their petition is, if not move it along a little faster. I might recommend looking for these threads and seeing if you can learn anyting. :)

Good luck!

If it gets close to the date on your NOA2 you may want to send this form letter to the Embassy, or Consulate, to remind them: http://www.visajourney.com/examples/extend-approval.doc

It is very rare for NVC to hold up a petition for 4 months. It should reach the Embassy before then and the embassy has the option to extend the case.


OUR TIME LINE Please do a timeline it helps us all, thanks.

Is now a US Citizen immigration completed Jan 12, 2012.

You need to wait 4 weeks before you call NVC about your petition it says that in your I-797c NOA2.

I was also told it can take as long as 90 days.

I hope it doesnt take the 90 days but they make that statement when you call them and talk to operator at NVC.

Really? Mine didn't say so. It's okay to call or e-mail NVC after a few days. The worst that will happen is they'll say they don't have the case from the service center yet.


I only offer advice - not even legal. Just the plain and simple kind.

Sorry it reads that if it has been more than 4 weeks since you recieved this approval notice and you have not reccieved notification from nvc that your petition has been forwarded overseas , then please call (603 334-0700.

But even if you call them before 30 days they will tell you to give them 30 days minimum time to enter your case in the system. And sometimes they will tell you it can take up to 90 days.

Hmmm, not really. I mean, that could happen; some cases are processed kind of fast there, some aren't. So call and e-mail and you might get to know the case number and the DHL shipment date before you get notice in the mail. If you call, talk to a live operator (the automated system doesn't work for K-1s).

Every time i called them before 30 days had gone by that was the response i got.

Now that i am past 30 days i was told to fax a copy of my noa2 and they will do a search on my petition to see where it is ,this was told to me last night.

Anyone wanting to fax them the # is (603)334 0791 attn: wc send cover letter and ask them to do a search for your petition and that it has been over 30 days since the approval notice date.
