NOA2 hard copy received with Mistake !!!

Filed: Country: Saudi Arabia

My case was approved December 6 (CSC)

On the 13th the hard copy of the approval arrived,

Unfortunately there was a mistake in the letter, the letter looks like this one:

The petition (i-130) has been approved. The petition indicates that the person for whom you are petitioning is in the United States and will apply for adjustment of status. The evidence indicates that he or she is not eligible to file an adjustment of status applications.."

"Because the person for whom you are petitioning is not eligible to adjust, we have sent the approved petition to the Department of State National Visa Center (NVC), NVC processes all approved immigrant visa which consular post is the appropriate consulate to complete visa processing. NVC will then forward the approved petition to that consulate. This completes all USCIS action on this petition. If you have any questions about visa issuance, please contact NVC directly. Please allow 30 days before contacting the National Visa center regarding your petition. The NVC will communicate with the person for whom you are petitioning concerning further immigrant visa processing steps. "

I’m the beneficiary :

- all the other information in the letter was correct

- I never was in the united state neither every applied for US visa

- We checked all copies of the forms that we sent in the first package and we are sure that it was not our mistake as nothing their stated that i'm in USA, as I’m now in Saudi Arabia

What should we do now?If we contact them, will they reissue new noa2 ? As we need it for the next step and for getting police clearance

Any one had the same experience ?

"the NVC will communicate with the person for whom you are petitioning concerning further immigrant visa processing steps" is this normal?

Thanks for advices in advance

I personally wouldn't worry about it. You needed the approved petition to be send to the NVC and it is. You can go over the issue with the NVC or maybe even the CO at the embassy, but it doesn't change anything materially. As long as everything is fine on your end then I don't think it's going to be a problem.

Congratulations are in order mate !

This letter just means the petition is being sent to the NVC.

The wording is not confusing. They are telling you that because your other half is not in the States legally/illegally, it is now in the purview of the Department of State to take care of matters and "adjudicate" from here on out.

They will decide on the merits of the case and grant him an immigrant visa.

Here is the guide to what happens next:

the casefile is being sent to NVC, so that's a plus.

about 6 weeks after the receipt notice date in the letter, start calling NVC and follow LingChe steps in the wiki here.

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
