I thought waiting for the NOA 2 was hard, now that we are done with everything waiting for the Embassy to schedule an appointment is torture. Good luck on your journey some are definitely quicker than others. Tkcr

Yes! :) I'm excited and getting impatient, too! I've only been waiting for almost a month, but it's really hard waiting and being away from the one you love.

Just try not to track it everyday. :P You are in CSC, so hopefully it will be fast. :)

oh yes it feels like long wait even if it is not !!!

Thank you, i hope so..

By the way, did you find your alien registration number in your NOA1 hard copy? or did you get it on the USCIS website? and may i ask why you had to change it?

Good luck !!!

True!

You're welcome. :)

My fiancé has our NOA1 hardcopy. I saw it on the website when I entered our receipt number. I don't think it is in the NOA1 hardcopy since it was mailed before my Alien Registration Number was changed. I think it just means that they have assigned you an Alien Registration Number. It is the number that the beneficiary will use in the future-for green card, etc.

Thank you and good luck to you as well! :)

You might want to check Igor's list for the service center where your petition was sent. That will give you a reasonable idea of how fast that stage can go. I'd ignore any timelines that pertain to the Phillipines as they are still being auto expedited. And then you can look under the under the timeline page and see the average time that your embassy has been processing applications.

But whatever you do, don't make any financial commitments towards planning your wedding! There are too many variables to predict with any accuracy when yours will be done.


K-1 from Haiti - NOA1: 5/27/2014; NOA2: 7/8 USCIS never updated to say that it was sent to the NVC (just in case you're as concerned about your status not updating as I was about mine)

It all reminds of the national broadcast systems monthly test. This only a test folks.

It is a test in patience and how much we are willing to sacrifice. Also one person so far has found out the beneficiary was a lieing playbook. So be patient.

Also stay busy and prepare for your fiancee's arrival

Just keep your self busy while waiting for your approval..

And keep researching while waiting for your NOA2. It will help you find out what you will need during your interview and medical.

Thumbs up!! :thumbs: Goodluck!

I don't think all the applications from the Philippines are being expedited. My fiancé is from the Philippines and my noa-1 is 9/9. Others who have filed after me from OTHER countries than the Philippines have received their noa-2 already and I'm still waiting. I'm just saying....
