I was reading up on the NVC process and just had a question about case number and that other number I need. it says start calling in 2 to 3 weeks to see if my case got there and then start calling to ask for my information.

My question is do I have to call? their not going to send that stuff through the mail? or email?

They send them through the mail. You still need to send copies of the iv documents. You bring the originals to the interview. Read the NVC wiki. Saylin keeps it current. Also, follow the November NVC thread. It will help you get through the process.
