Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I mailed my i-129 on 12/02/2014, received my NOA1 12/08/2014, and my NOA2 12/24/2014! An awesome Christmas gift! I checked the California processing time, and it shows 5 months! Now, I'm scrambling to gather all my documents to send to my Fiance.

NVC said I need to wait 30 days for my case number, and my packet being sent to the US Embassy where my Fiance resides. Will i be receiving an instruction packet from the NVC? Thanks for you help!

Congrats, and no. The NVC does not send you anything but a letter stating your approved petition was sent to the consulate. Check your consulate's website for their procedures and requirements.

Thanks! I'll look up the steps after the NOA2.

Thanks! I thought i'll be receiving the information. I'm about to mail out the copy of my I-129F along with the supporting documents.

Congrats lets update to one another i got approved dec 22 2014 18days after my noa1 from where is your beneficiary? Mine is in the phil.Goodluck and Godbless :)

Good to hear! Mine is from the Philippines, but she resides in Qatar.

obviously so far from the norm, but i still like reading and hearing about stuff like this

hope is all i got right now while waiting

that and abusing the hell out of my case tracker app -.-

Hope all goes smoothly with yours! I checked like crazy myself, even with the processing time telling me how long it'll take.

just i want to know how did you get approved within 16 days while some people been waiting for more than 6 months ? is it fair ? i do not think so

I was surprised how fast it was approved. I followed the guidelines this website offered, and I can't thank it enough.

I feel bad hearing about others waiting past the processing time. It's disheartening. I think it varies by Service Centers.

it's just how it goes sometimes. I waited 191 days and some people wait less than a week. I contacted my senator who didn't make any difference. I even emailed the president about it lol. I did get a nice reply back though. Much nicer than the ####### I got from USCIS. It sucks waiting for sure but at least it all gets sorted out eventually.

& it's the Service Centers. CSC has been cranking them out as long as I can remember, whereas TSC is just processing at a snail's pace. Building huge backlogs & slowly grinding away.
