hit the guides section here, study the K-1 visa flowchart.

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

Thanks for the response did hit up the k1 flowchart but actually found no info as to how to contact embassy to pick up call letter without nvc case number and also does Nvc send any letter to petitioner nd how long does that take ,..Thanks

To pick up your packets from the embassy the petitioner needs to email them. The email address is located under portals.....Ghana.....Consulate Information. I hope that helps

ivdvaccra@state.gov is the e-mail. Provide them with both the Beneficiary and petitioners full names and date of birth. You will need to reference the new case number assigned by NVC....it will start with ACC. Tell your fiancée to call NVC late at night and keep calling until they get through. Once it rings, expect another hour wait. You need this case number to communicate with the embassy in Accra. Ask for the invitation letter to pick up your packet for the K-1. If they have received your file from NVC and input it in their system, they will mail a letter to the beneficiary but most never receive it, or it takes long and the appointment is missed. Be patient because the embassy may take two weeks to respond to e-mails. If it is in their system, they will send an e-mail stating when they mailed the invitation letter. My fiancée has no post box so the embassy actually mailed her a letter to my address in the US. I had already gotten the information via e-mail however.
