NOA1 (e-mail) now what? USC petitioner living in Hong Kong

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I sent my I-130 to Chicago via DHL from Hong Kong on Wednesday Hong Kong time. I used my Hong Kong address on all the paperwork but listed my U.S. address as where we intend to live when we get to America.

So I got the e-mail notice today -- less than 4 days later! -- which is presumably my NOA1?Form I-797 and all that.

So now what? Where will the hard copy of that I-797 go? Here or my address in America?

I guess the excitement begins now along with the waiting.

What can I do to be prepared for the next step?

Thanks!

Good, your I-130 is in the system. If you don't get the I-797 notice in a few weeks, call the USCIS and find out where it went. The case is in the system though and you just need to make sure all future notices go to the right place. The best thing you can do for the next step is keep your cool and relax. :)

Good luck! I'm in HK too and going through the same process as you. My NOA email came on the 17th.

I'm going to start obtaining all the documents from the u.s just so once it's time to send, I won't have to wait for things to arrive
