Confirmation #. What does it Mean?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok, my USC fiance made the call to Vermont. He talked to atleast 3 people who gave him conflicting information about the processing times. One person said the wait time is 6months and he should wait until that time is over before asking for a service request. The next person said 7months this time the woman was very combative and defensive. My fiance requested to speak to a Tier2 and he was put on hold for 11/2 hours. The tier2 guy was quite helpful and understanding, he listened then said ''Your case should have been approved already.'' He said he will do a follow up and he gave my fiance a Confirmation Number. What is this number for? And does it mean anything? Anyone with an idea please.

FYI we have been waiting for just over 4months.....i know a bunch of people here have been waiting for twice that time. But we are both very frustrated, we haven't seen each other for two years now. The embassy couldn't grant me a visitors visa and he hasn't been able to travel since he went to BCT, then his AIT training (He's military).

We cry almost every time we talk over the phone/skype its crazy and the waiting is killing me.

(Organizer hat off)

The wait is frustrating, no doubt. Have you looked at the Military Forum here on VJ? You can both find some support and good information there.


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

You're well under the normal processing time. The confirmation # really doesn't mean much...other than you called and they've noted that you've called (your Fiance will most likely receive a letter from USCIS stating that he's put in a service request and will have to continue to wait). Unless you can get a military expedite (and I don't know what the qualifications of that are), you will have to hang in there a bit longer. Yes...it's frustrating and it's very hard, but try to focus on the outcome and enjoy every second along the way. Once you're together, all this anticipation will fade away. Believe it or not...there are aspects of our relationship that I miss from when we were separated. I know that may sound crazy...but, it's true. So cherish every little thing and stay positive (F) Much love and stay blessed.

I figured it was something like that, thanks Ben and Jill. I guess the wait continues....nothing to do but pray! Blessings your way too :)
