NOA2 Recieved!!! Now what...?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Wow I can't believe I just received our NOA2! It has been very rough for us being apart and we actually broke up for almost 2 months and just got back together 2 days ago, then today I received the NOA2! So I think that is a good sign!

I have read what the next steps are, such as filling out the Affadavit of support and sending to my fiance. Can anyone tell me how long the process usually takes from here? Does my fiance get his interview in a month from now? And does the beneficiary have to call the embassy to set up his interview or will they contact him with his interview date? And after the interview how long does it take for them to approve you?

Also anyone have an interview in Spain?? Any tips/advice??

Sorry a million questions I am sooooo excited and my fiance is sleeping because of the time difference so I havent even gotten the chance to speak to him about it yet!

Thank you so much!!!

Hi, Congratulations!!!

I don't know much about it since i'm still waiting for my NOA2, but at this point you both should start gathering all the paperwork...in your case, proof of employment (i believe is just a letter stating your position, pay, time at that job and whether if is permanent or temporary), W2, Taxes from the past 3 years, I134 (Affidavit of support for you and a co-sponsor if any). As far as his documents, he would need police records, vaccinations records, valid passport (6mos prior to visa), and translated and certified documents like birth certificate, divorce decree if any,,,,,oh and 4 photos...I am sure there is someone out here who can inform you better, but for now this should be a start ;)

The case gets send from the NVC to the fiance's consulate and once the visa fee is paid they will provide the list of doctors for the medical exam...once that is done, the interview should follow ( i think you gotta call and place it for him, please double check on this).

If any of what i mention is not correct, please provide us with the right info....Thanks :)

This process is so difficult, i understand the frustration of your fiance....it happens to all of us....my fiance gets really depressed and it's very hard for me to cheer him up when i'm just so stressed out, discouraged and sad too....we have been waiting for almost 7 months and still have no answer. At least love conquered and now you two are together again.

Thank God we haven't broken off, but it gets harder and harder to keep being optimist, to pretend everything is great and perfect, when in reality you just want to leave it all to be with the one you love....luckily you are getting near!!.....donn't loose faith!!!

Congratulations again, i wish you guys the best on this journey.

Good Luck!
