. . .Good Morning. . .I am headed to the Philippines 11/30 to be with LadyFriend while waiting for my NOA2 ( NOA1 is June 25 ). Question: How will I be notified of a NOA2? By:Text? eMail?? Regular mail??? I am bringing copies of paperwork from initial I-129F filing & copies / paperwork of Tax Returns, I-134, DS-156K, DS-156,DS-157, ETC. Any thoughts on what else wiould be helpful to bring with me. Reason for my posting this is that I would like to be prepared in the event that I get the NOA2 while there, we can complete the Visa process while I am there ( Only got a 1 way ticket an am able to stay ther for an extended time period ) & Fiancee can come to USA with me. I appreciated any feedback from people experienced with this & Thank You. . .

:time: so we know how far are you in the process. It takes an average of 90 days for CSC and more than 6 mons for VSC to get the NOA2

If you've signed up for email and text notification, you'll get it. Get a Letter of Employment from your current employer.

Good luck!

. . .Have not filed a timeline & probably will not. . . I am from the Left Coast - Columbia, CA . . . I am close to 4 months since NOA1 ( 6/25 ) . . . Retired, so no pay stubs but do have copy of last years returns, copies of IRA's, bank statements, etc. . . I will appear with her for the interview, so a letter of intent can easily be done. . .Anything else for recommendation. . .And THANKS!!! for replys. . .

Hey just a heads up as others answered your questions well. One item as you travel to Philippines is you will be required to purchase a return airline ticket or onward airline ticket as the Philippine Government will not allow you entrance with a one way ticket. This is due to people coming there to disapear with no form of income then it becomes messy for the RP Government etc. So a few options is have your return ticket open ended or purchase an onward ticket on Cebu Pacific to Hong Kong so you have no hassles. I have seen people not be able to board in the USA without a return or onward ticket.

Is NOA2 good for at least 6 months? My fiance is coming again January and my timeline says our case will be adjudicated between Nov. 29 - Jan. 13

What if he is here in PH while the NOA2 arrives? Just want to make sure that the NOA2 won't expire until we can manage the medical and interview appointment.

THANKS. :)

Just to clarify some people have never received an email and text notification and did not know until they received it in the mail. OP you might want to have a trusted family member or friend check your mail and if they notice anything from the USCIS to have them open it and and see if it is the NOA2 or an RFE. I will say from personal experince everything we have signed up for we did receive an email and text. Good luck on your journey.
