Hello All,

We didn't get a receipt number with our NOA1. How can I find out what ours is? Who do I contact? Doesn't Frankfurt (our USCIS office) give receipt numbers?

I asked a similar question a few days ago and got the answer "of course you got a receipt number."

But...we really didn't. I don't know what to do. I don't even really know how important it is, but I'd love to track our case.

Thanks!

Hi to you,

I can only tell you how it went for us ...

I am not sure if you mix things up or not ... Frankfurt isnt our USCIS office, its the US consulate where, when the processing is coming to an end, we will have to be interviewed before

receiving our visa, at least for those living in this area ... before anything goes to Frankfurt, USCIS sends the paperwork to a service center (which one will be mentioned in your NOA1 email) from there to the NVC (national visa center) and when it comes to an end ... this is when the NVC scedules an interview appoinment for you at the embassy in Frankfurt ... that is only then, when you will actually deal with them.

The receipt number and the receipt notice will (as usually mentioned in the NOA1 email), come by standard mail to the adress you gave on your form, like it says in the NOA1 email ... 7 to 10 days after .... with that number you may go to the website and check on ... MY CASE STATUS ... hope this will help!

And if you really didnt receive a number, then you will have to call Vermont Service Center .... since they are doing your paperwork, like you stated on your timeline.

Dont become nervous ... its better to practice patience with this paperwork process ;-))

Good Luck on your journey!

USCIS has a field office in Frankfurt, the OP may have been eligible to file their petition at that office.

OP, can you confirm that you filed your petition at the USCIS field office in Frankfurt. If you did, then I (or another Organizer or a Mod) will move this thread to the DCF forum as that would be a more appropriate forum for your question.
