NOA1 to NOA2, VSC, 44 days

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We just received NOA2 44 days after NOA1. I was expecting it to be 122 days (as per visa journey averages) or 150 days (as per the current average processing time on the UCIS tracker site).

When I started the process, I was estimating 10+ months from beginning to visa approval. Can I now estimate 6.5 months?

Are you living abroad with your spouse? Congratulations that is assume. Well read up on the NVC process. You can expect about 3 months there. Maybe in 4 to 5 months you should be done.

A follow on question too if anyone is kind enough to answer it. When my visa is approved, can I enter the US to 'activate' it, get a social security number, bank account, etc, then leave to return to the UK to work for a period of time?

The reason I ask is that I have a good job in the UK at the moment, and wouldn't like to leave it unless I have an equally good job in the US.
