What to be done after NOA2?

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi I am new here. I just wanna know what need to be done after NOA2.

I've already read the K-1 Flowchart, so right now Im already preparing to collect desired documents and stuff. ( Im the foreign fiancee)

My questions.

1. What are the forms they gonna provide in the next package? Can I start filling in the DS-156 online?

2. If I want to get a cosponsor ( to be on the safe side ), should we use the I-134 for each sponsor ? ( my fiancee, and probably one of his friend ).

3. On step 8 of the flowchart , " Some will be sent back asap, and others will be sent back later or brought to the interview." May i know what are usually the stuff that need to be send asap.

Thanks.

Btw our NOA1 - Dec. 7, 2005 and we received NOA2 via email - March 7, 2006

1) What comes in the next package (from your Embassy after your petition has been through the NVC) varies from Embassy to Embassy, so that question cannot be answered if you don't let us know which Embassy you will be going through.

2) An I-134 should be filled out by the USC fiance (they are the main sponsor) and also by any cosponsors and they each need to provide the information as requested on the I-134. There is some debate about if the USC has a cosponsor do they fill out an I-134 still, but I say go ahead and do it because it isn't hard and you'd hate to get an interview and find out you needed it.

3) When you receive your package from the Embassy it will not only contain the forms but it will also tell you what you need to send back and what needs to come with you to the interview. If you have an Embassy that a lot of other VJers are going through they might be able to provide this information from their experience or you can always call/email your Embassy for this information or check on their website.

And last but not least :time:

Since your have your NOA2 then it is a good time for her to go ahead and fill that out and send it to you along with the documentation it requests (it's all listed on the form).

I am from Malaysia too. The thing that took the longest (and delayed the sending back stuffs from Packet 3 to the embassy) was the police certificate. It took slightly more than 2 months for us to get it because of the year end holidays.

Btw, your birth certificate would need to be translated (since it's not in English). What I did was to translate it myself and got some commissioner of oaths (paid RM4 per certified copy) to certify it as a true translation. The person at the embassy (i emailed them) said that this was ok.

My interview will be in a week plus time. Wish me luck! Good luck on your visa journey too

Need advice on the following:

1. How to translate the birth certificate? in what format?

2. As for the police report, do you refer to Letter of Good Conduct apply from Ministry of Foreign Affairs Malaysia? For the (2) recent passport size photographs would it be an issue if I have cut the photo align to the FORM alignment?

3. How long would it took for the medical report? Where do you go?

Thank you.

Thank you.

1. I made a direct translation from the birth certificate myself into MS Word. I was born in late 70s and therefore had the notice for small pox immunisation at the back of it. I translated that too but the consular guys didn't even look at it. After it is translated, I got it certified by a commissioner of oaths near my house (they are like everywhere!) by paying RM4 per copy. Good to have extra copies as you may need it later.

2. Safer to get the passport sized photos from any photoshops. Just tell them you need passport sized photos and they will get it done for you. Should not cost more than RM16 for 6 copies.

3. There's only 2 clinics you can go to for the medical report. One in KL and the other in penang. My experience was that with the KL clinic. Scheduled my appointment (they are quite busy and would only be able to fit you with a week in advance notice) and was able to get my report in 3 days. However, the clinic wanted at least a week buffer (from medical appt date to interview date) for cases where they have to send your medical report to the consular. Btw, this is not a good sign as if you have no problems with the medical report, you get to collect it yourself.

The forms for the medical appointment are only provided with Packet 4. Btw, based on my experience with the consular for my interview, it is important for you to download the latest forms, regardless what they say.

Good luck on your visa journey.

Miwa's fiancee
