NOA2 to NVC (Timeline)

Hi!

I just got my NOA2 (online status only) - no hardcopy yet. What to expect next? I have downloaded the packet 3 and gathering documents as listed. But I am not really sure how are we notified when to submit all these documents.

How long should we wait for our case to be received by NVC?

Also, what are the fees we need to expect from NOA2 to Visa Approval?

Thank you in advance for your reply!

After NOA2 it takes approx 2 wks for ur service center to send the file to NVC. The NVC assigns a case # and sends it to the appropriate embassy. The embassy should then send the beneficiary packet 3. Every consulate varies so you should ask in ur country's portal or look at threads there. Also go to embassy information to check for info there too: http://www.visajourney.com/consulates/

Sometimes NVC takes longer than the 2 wks and sometimes the petitioner receives a letter in the mail with the case# (as we did). You can call NVC at 1-603-334-0700 after the 2 wk period. Start very early 7am as it can be difficult to get through. Here is the VJ guide:

You can also track ur file once u get the case #at:

Please select "immigrant visa"

Best of luck!

Thank you :) I might not be able to complete all the documents in 60 days. I stayed in three different countries and to request for Police Certificates from each one of them is a challenge.

I just hope everything goes smooth with the entire process :)

Goodluck to everybody waiting for his/her case to be finalized :)

I know ours went faster than we expected and held up submitting the DS160 until he had all paperwork. When u receive ur NOA2 hard copy it will have an expiration date. (Ours was 4 months I think that's standard) If u need more time it can be extended too. It's tough to time because they say don't collect things too early but then it can take awhile to get the documents in.

It will come together just start ASAP! ?

Side note: this is for the CR1/IR1 visa. As K1 applicants we don't send anything to NVC and the 60 day rule is not for us. Our petitions are valid for 4 months and we can have that extended if needed. Don't worry about getting everything together in 60 days!

After you get your case number from NVC and the consulate in Vancouver receives your file you can fill out the DS160 online and pay the visa fee. You then fill out your packet 3 and fax it to the number on the form. A tip I got from other VJers is to email the consulate right after you fax packet 3 back and ask them to email you packet 4 (apparently it's much faster that way). Then you can book your medical and interview.

Click on the K1 Fact sheet link and on the download packet 3 links in this link for help:

http://vancouver.usconsulate.gov/visas/fiance-visas.html

I hope this helps!

EDIT: unless you're in the east and interviewing in Montreal! Just realized that you could be. In that case search for the Montreal embassy, same process.

There is a link at the top of the Canada forum about Vancouver if you need to go through it as it's a bit different than Monteal.
