Question about NOA2 receipt

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I have a question about my NOA2 receipt that I received today. As I understand, every approved petition goes from the service center (mine was TSC) and is sent to the NVC and from there to the appropiate embassy.

However, I was confused because in my receipt it says "The above petition has been approved, and forwarded to the listed consulate." Does this mean that it has been forwarded to Bogotá, Colombia (where my fiancee lives) or do all the receipts say this? Furthermore it says I may contact the consulate with any questions about visa issuance.

If anyone could help me clear up this process I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks,

Mitchell

Hi :)

All NOA2 say that, but all case files go to the NVC first. It should be getting to the NVC in 4 weeks time or so. After that they will send it to the consulate. :)

I'd advice calling the NVC in 4 weeks so you get your case file and once you do, you can go to www.ceac.state.gov click on my case status (for immigrant visas) and check your visa status.

I hope I could help. :)

All approved petitions are sent to NVC for more processing. After that, NVC will forwarded the approved petition to listed consulate that you wrote on your I-129F form. Remember, NVC and embassy are part of Department of State (DoS).

Mine also was processing at TSC. You should be able get your case number as possible as you can by calling NVC or DoS (Visa Unit). I've got mine 2 weeks from approval date on USCIS website.

As soon as you get your case number, now you can check consulate where your fiancee will have the interview to see requirements of K-1 visa. Good luck.

It will go to NVC first, then forward to Bogota. Give it a couple weeks from your approved noa2 date, then start calling NVC or DOS for your case number. They will tell you it will take 8 weeks and to call back then. Keep calling! Also calling DOS is a lot less wait time on the phone than NVC. my personal experience, I received more info from DOS than I did calling NVC.

Congrats & Good luck

I agree with my friend above... You should probably get an email (if you signed up for notifications) or an update on their website within 2-3 weeks when they send the case to NVC... then after that give it about a week or two and then start calling the NVC... TSC is now taking longer to send the petitions to NVC... good luck!

Congratulations for the NOA 2 the approval indications in the NOA 2 is BULL and is only for a period of time (read small letters) the final say is at the Bogota embassy in front of the CONSUL; After the interview the Consul sign the Document and the Visa is Granted.

In this web-site you will find help in your questions; you weak point is the affidavit support, but you have time to fix it up.... good luck !!!
