Called NVC but no case number yet

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


K1 petition is approved on June 12.

So I just called NVC to ask case number but they said no case number yet and to wait at least 10 days. Is't normal?? When will be the easiest date to call NVC for case number after petition is approved on June 12?

Thank you, VJs :):D

Yeah give them at least 15 days from the date your case was transferred and its not going to take that long to be transferred from the nvc to the embassy where your fiance gonna be interviewed as a k1 visa . And yeah its normal . Wish you the best and good luck :)

Not to be a downer... but we received NOA2 on May 13, and the NVC still has no record of having received our file from CSC. The average transfer time is 14 days based on VJ data, and then another 4 days spent at NVC prior to shipping to embassy. Needless to say we're not happy. We have initiated service request at USCIS and research request at NVC. Sure hope one of those bears fruit soon, cuz being stuck in limbo really sucks. It only took 111 days for NOA2, and now already 38 days have passed just to transfer the file from one location to another. Something is definitely wrong with this visa approval process!!!

I gota mine NOA 2 jume 19 Just wondering when to call

call every day if you want.. they will all tell you give them three weeks, or 15 working days

nobody will tell you not to call.. obviously we all want to roll quickly and they were always very pleasant when they said, no it is not here yet, please allow 15 business days for it to get logged

the reality is that it takes less than a week from the time it is sent until it is logged as received.. then you have another standard three weeks until the case number and iin is assigned, but again, doesn't take that long

summary: wait a week and call every day :)
