VSC transfer APPROVED! NOA2! Now what?

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

On June 19, 2013, we mailed you a notice that we have approved this I129F PETITION FOR FIANCE(E). Please follow any instructions on the notice. If you move before you receive the notice, call customer service at 1-800-375-5283.

God has answered my prayers!! Today we were finally approved!! I just wanted to share the good news with everyone. Our NOA1 date was January 17th so it took about 5 months! I'm one step closer to finally being with my fiance again.

I was starting to lose hope, I thought the transferred petitions were doomed to sit in a dark corner for months. I wish everyone goodluck and pray you all get a speedy approval! Things are looking up.

Now the question that's been asked a million times, now what? I'm going to start gathering paper work and getting everything together. I'm just wondering when can I schedule a medical and then interview? Its going to the Vancouver embassy. I've read you can call the NVC ahead of time? How do I got about doing that? andd how long am I looking at before I have the interview and visa in hand?

Congrats!!!!!!

You must start gathering birth certificates, police records/ penalty records. The whole copy of your I-129 package (pictures, boarding passes, etc all the evidence) the copy of your noa2 (hardcopy)

You will make the medical interview by the time you receive your case number. Usually you have 2 months before the interview.

GOOD LUCK!!!star_smile.gifstar_smile.gifstar_smile.gif

Usually the advice is to make a copy of all your 129F package so by the time you receive your NOA2. You send all of those documents for your 129f application and when you receive your NOA2 you need to gather all of those documents again and more like police reports.
