The telephone system there is frustrating. When you finally get through, you get some entry level person who has no better info than you already have.

Send e-mail. It takes 7 to 10 days to get it answered, but at least you get it answered by someone with the info you are seeking.

Thank you! I already got my fiance a interview appt. I just bought our new home and was just wanting to change my address and she read that after her DS-160 their was a chance for no interview. I guess I will e-mail the new address or they can just find out when she gets to the interview. Thanks again!

To transfer embassies I would assume that also means they would have to transfer your case files as well. I would suggest you reach out to USEM or Saudi Embassy ASSAP

10/25: Mailed my I-129F using USPS Express to Texas Lockbox

10/27: NOA 1 notification from USCIS

10/30: NOA 1 Hard copy received in the mail

12/15: NOA 2 Email/Text (49 Days)

12/17: USCIS Sent case to NVC

12/29: NVC Received Case

12/30: MNL# Assigned

1/6: USEM Received Case "Ready"

1/29: Interview :dancing: (APPROVED)
