Congratulations!

The email isn't your NOA2, that will arrive in the mail soon. The USCIS should be forwarding your petition to NVC shortly after approval. NVC can have your petitions with them for 2-3 weeks depending on if you are not placed on administrative review. Start gathering document for the next phase, meanwhile.

First off, Congrats!!!

As someone said, the NOA2 will arrive in the mail soon.

2-3 weeks from CSC to NVC, another 1-2 weeks from NVC to your Consulate (I think ours took one week), and maybe a few days to a week for your consulate to send Packet 3.

If you start gathering the stuff you need for the Interview now, the process will go much faster for you.

Congrats again!
