Congrats !!!!!!

In a simple sentence: Once the NOA2 is approved it goes off to the NVC who in turn sends it to the USEM Manila where u will get a MNL Case number assigned.

Right now is the "busy" time for you AND your fiancee because you have to make sure you have all the documents from each of you.. Best bet is to follow the K1 instructions from the embassy web site.. The first link are instructions from the embassy's site. They dont send them via mail.

These may help a lot also:
