You need to give it about 10 to 15 days after approval and call the NVC AFTER . They will let you know if they have the file or not. If nt, just keep caling everyday until they do and provide you with your case number. From what ive read here i think average time for them to receive is 15-20 days. The received mine in 18 days

How de we know if nvc got recieved our paper and how long to wait bfore we can get the Mnl Case number.. ?

You need to call the NVC 2-3 weeks after your approval. Ask them if they did received your case and if there's a new case # assigned for you. :)

I got mine after 19 days..

It really varies, they were extremely fast 10 - 15 days last summer, I read a lot lately of a range of 15 - 28 days, we got out NOA2 two weeks ago today. And today 14 days later exactly, I called NVC and they received our case and have already assigned a new Case # and Inv. I,D, #, the guy said that I would no be able to view it though since it just happened today and that on Monday to call back for more details.

Actually I was shocked to get that much information considering they just received it yesterday and the person at NVC also said ""WOW!!! your case arrived today and I got lots of information you, that is incredibly fast"" but I can not use the Inv. I.D. # yet, since it was just input yesterday, he (the NVC person) said to wait until Monday afternoon and call back.

You will need that for accessing your case here https://ceac.state.gov/CTRAC/Invoice/Signon.aspx?node=Signin

I am still learning on what to do here as well, it looks like this where and how we pay a fee.

I wish someone who has been through the NVC portion recently would chime in and comment.

Well the guy told me that is also one other number I will need and for me to call back Monday. He said that since our case was just entered that the computer system will not update until Monday. Also I can have them add my email, text number and beneficiary's email and text into system. I will call back after work Monday and see what they say then and come back on here and post what I know then.

Hopefully by exchanging info on here we can help each other navigate more easily and others coming up behind us so they will not saying to huh to themselves like we are.

Does NVC also send a letter or is the phone only way to get the case #?

They do send a letter, but it takes about a month or so to receive it. At least for me it did. Phone is the much faster way.

Hmmm what do you mean tell you how much you owe??

In my case,i can pay my visa now and sched my interview since i have the case # from NVC. Nvc told us that in 20 days they will send our papers in the consulate here... So probably by december (which i plan to sched my interview) the embassy already received our papers... I will pay the visa fee on Monday and hopefully i could get an interview by december and medical on first week of november...
