I just received my I-797 approval notice that my I129F petition for fiancee has been approved, with dates valid from 09/16/2014 to 01/15/2015.

This was sent to me by the USCIS Texas Service Center. I received 2 copies dated Sept 16, 2014 and Sept 17, 2014.

The first line in the body text says "The above petition has been approved and forwarded to the listed CONSULATE."

Is this normal on other I-797 approval forms from the Texas Service Center? I called the USCIS and was told they sent the approval to the NVC on 9/19/2014.

When I called the NVC I was told that they won't get the package for at least 5 weeks. Is this normal nowadays?

My I-129F was filed on Feb 03,2014 and it took till now to get the approval. I am worried that the text stating that it has been sent to the Consulate is an error that will sidetrack my file causing more delay.

This process is taking WAYYYYY too long and is very frustrating.

It hasn't been sent to the consulate. They all say that, but they all go to NVC, And yes, it can take weeks to get there. Give it a couple of weeks and call them.


I can explain it to you. But I can't understand it for you.

Congrats!! :dancing:

It usually doesn't take more than 8-10 days from TSC. That is one thing they are at least good at. Like aruadha said, start calling on Friday and call every day until you know your case number. This part should go much faster if you are prepared, which you need to start doing asap if not already.

Good luck!!
