We have got NOA2 on Oct 20th and waiting for the mail from NVC. It seems like a lot of ppl call the NVC in advance and get the CASE#. but i heard it is hard to talk to them cuz it takes forever or they never answer. So, I dont feel like i wanna call them ...

Do we have to call them anyway ??? Is it essential?

Or I wonder if we can contact NCV thourgh e-mail...

Thank you in advance!

Have a great day.

You don't have to since they'll send you a letter with your case number in it requesting you go on with the next steps preparing for your interview. I got my case number early only because I had emailed them about my not getting an Alien number for my husband assigned by USCIS. They emailed me a few days before I got their paper letter in the mail saying DCF filers receive no A# and they ended their email response with my husband's case number.

We got our petition approved Oct. 20 and case number was assigned Oct. 30 according to CEAC.
