How long for packet 3?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So i just got off the phone with NVC and they told me that our case had been sent to the Paris embassy on May6th (they received it on may 2nd so it only took 4 days). Do you know how long it takes for the consulate to receive it and mail packet 3?

FYI wednesday 8th and friday 9th were holidays in France so the embassy was not working. So i am thinking they probably got it on the 10th or the 13th so they've had it for over a week now.

It varies, but our case arrived at the consulate exactly 2 weeks after the NOA2.

I received packet 3 two days later at home (so 16 days after NOA2).

Just a little more patience, but you'll probably receive it soon. yes.gif

I see that yours left nvc a day after me and your consulate received it on the 13th. Since we are not that far away i can estimate that mine arrived on the 10th of may or 13th at the latest... i guess the paris embassy is not as fast at the amsterdam one....
