Almost 300 days noa2 but now super confused

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey so yeyy we got the noa2 and the hardcopy, ultra belated but wooo finally joining you guys.

-I have police certificate 'no live trace' and the data release thing

-I got all the shots done and a record of them

-My fiance sent off for his tax transcripts

-Photos and letter from doc re:health = done

So now I do the forms? I have to obtain some number from nvc? I need that number before I can book an interview or medical??? I send the forms before I can do any of that or present them at interview? My fiance does affidavit and mails it to me to present at interview?

I've never been very good at organizing and paperwork, especially since I have brain damage issues. The order of it is very confusing for me and I fear this confusion will delay us even further than vermont did.

Is there a bullet point list of what needs to be done very simply so i can understand? I did look at the london k1s thread hence getting what little we have done but I couldnt see anything further.

Is the data release thing the subject access report? If not, you should get that ordered as soon as possible since it takes a while to be delivered and it's needed for the interview.

If you aren't able to follow the pinned thread, http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/350185-london-2012-k1s-from-noa2-to-interview-thread/, then get your fiancé to assist you in organizing everything you'll need for the next steps. After all this time waiting for an NOA2, you don't want to encounter any additional delays because you skipped over something important.

Yes It's the subject access.

I have been following that thread, except beyond the first couple of posts its not very clear or in sequence order for me to understand quickly. Everything I come across here or on the web is a case of sifting through info to gather correct instructions and well i'm not very good at that. My fiance is working many hours and left it to me.

Perhaps I should delete this thread, I read how people detest threads like these and feel embarrassed to admit I'm too retarded to understand what the rest of you seem to have down. Can I even delete this or do I need a mod?

Where specifically are you having questions? Perhaps that would help. If you've read the first few posts in that thread, then you have what you'll need, but if there's something specific, that would be good to know.

It's pretty much what we have to do, in particular the order, I get stuck on basic things but am fine with details. I gather that the case goes to nvc and I have to get a number? When do I do this? When do I send the forms? Book medical? Send affidavit or bring to interview?

Yes, the case goes to NVC first where it gets assigned an LND number. You or your fiancé can call to get the number. You'll need that to schedule the medical exam at Knightsbridge. You can do that at any time. If you just received the paper NOA2, then the petition should be on its way to NVC or even in London.

There's a thread in the VJ Consulate & USCIS forum on how to track packages from NVC to different consulates/embassies so you can determine when the petition package has arrived in London. From there, get your medical scheduled, send in all of the DS forms (forms only, not the supporting documentation...take it with you to the interview) with the exception of the DS-2001 readiness form. Once you go to the medical exam, mail the DS-2001 the same day. Be sure to make copies of your police certificate and subject access report details and bring it with you to the medical exam.

The affidavit of support and the supporting materials (tax return transcripts, paystubs, etc.) go with you to the interview. Don't mail those to the embassy.

Oh wow thanks, that clears things up, like so much!

There's some kind of form with a question regarding harming self or others, i'm unsure if this is on one of the ds forms? What I do know is that it's advised to wait to check 'no' until the medical (just to confer its kosher with the docs there) if you have any history of impulse control issues. I intend to do this, but if it is one of the ds forms, will it hold up my ability to book interview date?

The order can vary a little. Some people try to jump the gun and call here and there to save a few days time. No real need to do that or track your package if you have poor organizational skills. Just take it in the intended order. No need to cut corners because you have to wait on the Subject Access Report anyway,

Here's some background of what is supposed to happen- (copied from a list I made for another person.)

1. Petition gets approved and USC (US citizen) gets notified by mail. It shows an expiration in 4 months

2. File goes to NVC for only a few days. This is the hand-off to the Dept of State. Gets a new case number LNDxxxxx and is sent to London. USC gets a letter from the NVC telling new case number and it's gone to London.

***At this point you can call the Dept of State for info on your case. It is a US phone number. DOS 202-663-1225 press 1, then 0. They don't charge per minute to give your information.

3. London takes a couple of weeks maybe, but eventually logs in your case and sends a paper letter to the UK person with instructions on how to apply for the visa. A description of that is in this post in the LONDON K1 thread http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/350185-london-2012-k1s-from-noa2-to-interview-thread/?p=5137390 . The letter is posted in the same forum here http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/350185-london-2012-k1s-from-noa2-to-interview-thread/?p=5180175.

The London web page of instructions is here Instructions for Immigrant Visa (K) Applicants Applying for a Visa in London.

4. The UK person sends in four forms with information. As long as those get in before the I-129F petition expires everything is fine. If there is a delay, the letter says that London will need a notarized letter of intent from the USC (at the interview) to assure them she is still on board. If they still don't get the four application forms forms from the UK person and the petition is expired, London will mail a second letter asking The UK person if they still intend to apply for a visa.

5. After sending the four forms, the UK person follows the rest of the website instructions to gather the documents required for the interview. That list is here http://london.usembassy.gov/application_documents.html

6. A medical exam is scheduled. They will want to know your LND number. It's on the letter from the embassy. They will want to see your police certificate. The medical results go to the embassy by courier.

7. When all the documents needed (see #5) are in hand, and the medical has been scheduled, the UK person lets London know they are ready to interview by sending form DS-2001 with a cover letter telling date of marriage (if you have something sorta planned), date of medical exam, email address.

8. When London has three things from you they will give an appointment. Those things are a)application forms, b) medical results, c ) Ds-2001 ready for interview form.

9. London mails an Appointment Letter giving the date and time.

10. The UK person calls the embassy line ( 09042-450-100 ) to pay the visa fee over the phone by credit card. A receipt is emailed. Bring the receipt to the interview appointment to show you have paid.

That's a question asked on the medical questionnaire you need to complete for the medical exam -- page 9, question 11: http://photos.state.gov/libraries/unitedkingdom/164203/cons-visa/iv018a_medical.pdf

I don't believe the Knightsbridge docs to that in-depth, at least from what my now-husband told me of his experience there last autumn. You'd likely need to get something from your GP stating you're no longer in danger of harming yourself/others to take to the exam. This topic comes up a lot and from what I've read to date, it hasn't prevented anyone from receiving a K-1.

Regarding the self-harm issue, I have the same thing. Just get a signed letter from your GP stating you are no threat to yourself or others, and if you have any history of mental illness, get him to note the treatment, duration and prognosis on the same letter (DOS website asks for this regarding medicals).
