My NOA2 was approved on 04/30/2012. I emailed NVC and received this reply on 05/21/2012. Forward the NOA2 on 05/23/2012 and have not heard back due to the Long Weekend. Is this normal? Should I start downloading Package 3 from the Vancouver site to start the next set of paperwork?

I'm guessing this is not a US citizenship question? since you talk about dealing with Vancouver consul.

Moving from US citizenship forums to K-1 progress reports.

Hi J & T,

From: VANCOUVER K1 Beneficiary...

I downloaded 'packet 3' ( which is a 2 page 'checklist' ) months ago.

When you see the 'checklist' for 'packet 3' (VANCOUVER consulate) it'll make more sense.

Direct Link : Packet 3 from---> Vancouver: US Consulate

From that 'packet/checklist', I completed form DS-230 Part I, Biographic data. My fiance did the I-134, Affidavit of Support .

I'm SO glad I downloaded it ahead of time, while waiting all these months. It gave me time to review my passport, send away for a LONG Birth Certificate, get more photos for Medical, etc... in the long run it will save you some time.

Currently I'm waiting for the 'Letter with Case #, (this week ... fingers crossed) I'll complete the remainder of 'packet 3'/checklist. Forms DS-156 & DS-156K , Police check & Medical.

DO IT good.gif if you want to be one step ahead

Good luck

It can take a couple weeks for NVC to get the package from USCIS. Email or call them every few days.

Check on your embassy case number:

For the NVC:

Give them 7 - 10 days before calling. Call after 4:45 PM eastern time for shorter wait times

K1's are not tracked through the AVR, ever. They are processed like an immigrant visa, but they are NOT immigrant visas, so they fall into a completely different class of their own. Therefore you need an operator. To get there:

1-603-334-0700 Operator assistance is available Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM to 12:00 AM (Eastern Time)

Press 1 for English

Press 5 for an operator


Website: www.immigrantvisas.state.gov

E-mail: NVCInquiry@state.gov


You are required to provide the following security information with each inquiry to receive a case specific response:

* NVC Case Number or USCIS Receipt Number (Place in the subject line of the e-mail).

* Petitioner's name and date of birth.

( NOTE: If the visa petition is employment-based, include the employer's company/organization name instead of the petitioner's name and date of birth. )

* Principal Applicant's name and date of birth.

* If you are an attorney, include your name and the name and address of your law office.

I will hit the 2-month mark tomorrow and STLL nothing! NVC has requested USCIS on June 11th a copy of the file (enroute to National Records Center). This is absolutely insane. What will happen if my Package 3 adn everything else is not completed by the "Approval Notice" which is 08/29/2012?

Approved may 2 2012 call NVC every day nothing should I be worry its a little over a month.

Did you go the California for your petition? If yes, you definitely should send a copy of your I-797 to NVCResearch@state.gov because your petition may be at the Records Center too! Seems like the late April to early May's approved petition ALL got send to the Records Center instead of Visa Center!
