I received NOA2 on October 6th,

I have been trying to reach NVC by email several times and still no case number, no information. Im not in the U.S so I can not call.

Any idea how much longer for thewm to process the visa and send papers to Embassy in Chile?

Anyone else that got approved around my date has any news from NVC?

I assumed you are the petitioner, am I right?

It usually takes up to 90 days before the approved petition left NVC and goes to the US embassy. You can use Skype to call them - of course use a subscription or credit that you bought- or some others members here used Magic Jack to call for free up to 15 minutes, I believe.

The best way to get ahold of NVC is by phone. You can try by email, but unless they have your case already they may not respond. It can take up to 8 weeks for NVC to receive your case from the USCIS service center. It took us 5 weeks to finally get our case number.

I receive my NOA2 on 09/26/14 and contacted the NVC a couple of weeks later. The NVC has assigned the case number, but informed me my case is in Administrative Processing, but wouldn't give me any any additional details as to why.

I persisted in asking what specific information they are reviewing, but would not give any information. I just contacted them today on 10/29/14, well past the 30 days and they said it could take 45 days to over 2 months or more.

I see all the NVC cases received AFTER mine that have been forwarded to the MNL embassy and this is very frustrating. I'm certain there are no issues with my petition or supporting documentation. It seems they so unfair that people who applied after me are going to front of line!

What are my options to expedite this bureaucratic BS to delay my petition getting to the embassy. The NVC states it could be 45 days to 2 mo's or more to process my case. This is completely unfair and unacceptable. I've followed the rules, submitted all the correct documentation.

Would contacting my Congressional representative help or hinder my case? I see others here who submitted their initial petition in September and already have their case at the embassy!

Flustered and angered at the hypocrisy.

The NVC does not process I-129F petitions for K-1 visas. It doesn't even go in their system. All they do is give a case number and away it goes to the embassy. Did you track your case using your MNL case number on the CEAC website?

CEAC website: https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx?eQs=o/iS8zDpeAKjMWCuebHqOw==

Check IMMIGRANT VISA, enter your case number.

I understand that I-129F are not processed by the NVC.

I have mny MNL case number from the NVC, but it says @ NVC and it's been 3 weeks.

I I'm frustrated since I contacted NVC several times and their response, It's in Administrative Processing. When I pressed further what this means, their response is they can't give me a timeline for processing. Only that it could take 45 days to 2 month's or longer. I have no red flags and all documentation is within their guidelines.

It upsets me when people who received their NOA2 weeks after mine and their cases are already at embassy. This is not right.

Should I contact my Congressional office to see that is the delay? I have no red flags and no missing or incomplete information. I had hoped to have my fiancee here by here birthday on 12/21/14.

We got our NOA2 on October 1st, and still no info from NVC :( Our friends got their September 18th and as well no feedback from NVC....


My fiancée Emilia and I met in October 2009 in Wrocław, Poland while I was doing “study abroad” after graduating High School in California. We started dating in the beginning of December 2009. In September of 2010, I went back to Poland to start a full time study program at the University of Arts in Poznań. I decided to study in Poland because I wanted to be close to Emilia. In October of 2012, Emilia decided to move to Poznań to live with me.

K1's are sometimes put into AP at NVC. That started about the time we went through there in 2008. I will put a link to the K1 AP at NVC thread. Usual times are running about 3 weeks these days. We were there 7 weeks.

There is nothing you can do but wait. Follow the link in my post to read up on it. Once we were married, my husband filed a FOIA request to find out what that delay was all about. It was random, and I was told it was random as well at the interview in NZ.

As soon as they open. 8am eastern standard time

It's actually open 7 AM Eastern Time.

I agree with calling them that early, but I also haven't had to wait long when calling at 4-5 PM Eastern time, (20-30 minutes versus 40 minutes when I call in the morning). Both have been better than when calling them after 11 PM ET(40-50 minute wait).
