It will be forwarded to the NVC, don't be mistaken, everything goes through the NVC before going to the consulate. I had the same case but when I called NVC, they told me it always comes here before going to appropriate consulate. I got my NOA2 hard copy within 5-6 business days. You have to wait till 30 days before you can contact your center to ask where the NOA2 is. Also, I believe you will get a letter from NVC when they forwarded to your consulate. I called the NVC first day I got the hard copy but my case was not in the system and they agent told me to keep calling(he even said you can call on a daily basis). I called a week after and NVC told me that case was forwarded to the consulate. I used a technique from VS (type dhl tracking in search) to see if they delivered my packet to the consulate. After that, I got a e-mail from the consulate for fiance's interview. It is the holiday season, the mail is a bit slow, you are almost done, just a little bit more. Also when you call the NVC(see guides for #), have them update you and your fiance's e-mail, as my fiance's packets for interview came via email. Anyways, you will get it soon. :)

You only need the I-797 hard copy and MNL case number to move forward. No need for appointment for medical, it's a first-come first-served basis provided you've made the visa fee payment. The NVC completion letter will be sent to you as soon as they're done processing your case via post mail then forwarded to Manila consulate.

Also please refrain from using the comma and period alternately, you're making it hard to understand your inquiry.

Good luck!

To: Tintin and Mike, sorry for the typing(.,.,,) if you go to the St. Luke's web site it plainly tells you that you must have a hard copy of the MNL number sent from NVC, before you will be allowed to take a physical for K 1 visa!!! I just wonder how long until NVC will send the hard copy???

That will be all up to NVC, it took them 3 weeks to finally complete our case and forwarded to Manila Consulate and another week to get the hard copy but others were completed just few days or were longer than ours.

They've only asked NOA2 from Mike and it was last Oct unless it changed recently then you have to wait for the NVC letter then

Edit: Mah bad, Mike said they've asked for NVC letter and NOA2. That said, you have to wait for them to send you the hard copy but you could go ahead and pay the visa fee and schedule the interview once you have the MNL case number.

my suggestions:

1. you call into NVC daily , ask for the MNL casefile number.

2. once you have the MNL casefile #, email the # to yer lass

3. yer lass gets ONLINE at the Manila IV website, and schedules an appointment using her MNL #.

4. once she's successfully scheduled online, she will DOWNLOAD an appointment letter from the website.

5. have her PRINT OUT the appointment letter.

6. have her HAND CARRY the appointment letter into the medical appointment.

That's the short version. Hank_ has a very detailed list with links, on what to do .

You should find it, study it.

Good Luck !
