https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx Track it here.

Also, now that you have the LND number, you can book your medical! Appointments can be made by calling 020 7486 7822 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm). Have your London Embassy issued case number to hand when making your appointment. They will want your police certificate (K1s) presented at the appointment.

I don't wanna book my medical yet as I'm unsure of the processing times at NVC... can I have the medical if my case hasn't left NVC yet?

A K1 should be at the NVC about 3 days. But sometimes they get held up. Call NVC and ask what date it left of use the status tool to see if it say in transit. I think it is best not to ATTEND the medical before the case is in London as well as your DS-xxx application forms. But you can make an appointment for 2-3 weeks out. Follow the London steps for best results.

You can book your medical as soon as the NVC or DOS provides you your LND case #. It will likely be a few weeks before you can get in for your medical anyway. Just make sure your medical is scheduled for around 2-3 weeks out so that the Embassy has time to receive your case from NVC before receiving your medical results. NVC usually only has your case for no more than 2 weeks before passing it along to the embassy.

Ours was shipped from USCIS on the 14th and received at NVC on the 20th. We got the case number today and the file has already been shipped to the embassy in Jakarta. We booked our medical for tomorrow, since it'll take a week to get the results. We have everything else ready to go.
