With the slew of recent approvals, has there been anyone who has received their NVC case number yet? I was approved about a week ago. Should I start calling them, maybe this Friday or so?

I'm excited beyond belief!!

It can take at least a week or two for the NVC to receive your case. Start calling them anytime. Call them every day until they give you your MNL case number.



Once you get your MNL case number, you can get rolling on paying the visa application fee at BPI, scheduling the interview appointment, and completing the medical.

I called today for the 1st time. They said it takes 15 business days to get there. I'll call again later this week.

what if I don't call them? Will I receive the number eventually in one of the packets? Do people call nvc in order to obtain the number only because it speeds things up for them or it's mandatory part of a process? Also, do you guys know whether my son has to go with me to the inteview at the embassy? He was born in the US, has dual citizenship, US passport and was listed on the petition but not as a beneficiary. Thanks.


NOA1 - 2012/08/22

240 days later - day of my dreams - NOA2 2013/04/19

Call them EVERYDAY until you get your NVC case number. Don't sit on your hands. Once you get your "MNL" number you are now in the "driver's seat" for a change. You have real control over how long this process can take from this point on. Time was a factor for us, so we're not playing around. We waited 7.5 months for the freaking NOA2 and now it's time to rock and roll! lol Once you get your NVC case number, that says two things: One-NVC received your packet from USCIS. The processing takes like 2 to 3 days and then off to the US Embassy. Second-you can NOW begin timing things regarding your visa interview, when to take the medical and so forth. YOU now have control. We received NOA2 on April 19th. Got our NVC case number on the 29th and are scheduled to interview in Manila on the 16th of May. NBI clearance, NSO, CENOMAR and medical will all be done of course by then. We'll attend CFO seminar after the interview (when she gets her passport back), get the stamp, then head home, hopefully by the end of May. That's OUR plan! Good luck guys!
