Calling the NVC for the MNL number...HELP

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone:

This is my first post and I did some searching on the site for an answer to my question but it still wasn't clear.

I received the NOA2 int he mail on Feb 28. The notice date was Feb 24. I haven't called yet, but I will start tomorrow. Why is it necessary to get the MNL number prior to the fiance receiving the Packet 3? Some people have said that the fiance can then go ahead and schedule the interview. Others seem to have mentioned that the fiance can use the MNL number to get a head start on the Police Clearance (since it could take weeks to receive back) Some things to add: I am preparing the Affidavit for Support right now as well as some other documents. I will mail the paperwork to my fiance by the end of the week. It usually takes 10-14 days to arrive. The fiance is Thai.

So is there any need for me to get the MNL number and let her know what it is ASAP?

Also, a quick follow-up question.

I began the K1 process just last month. The I-129F was received (NOA1) on Feb 10. NOA2 was received around two weeks later.............so is there a need to use a new Intent to Marry forms, passport photos, etc?

Thanks so much in advance.

Mike

What you want from NVC is the case file number, it will have the prefix for Thailand, whatever that it. MNL is for Manila, Philippines. ;)

1. There isn't a NEED for you to get the NVC case number ASAP. It just will help you track your case and see if it has arrived in Bangkok yet. Also, in some countries, you can set up the medical appointment and interview as soon as you get the case #. That isn't true everywhere though. For instance with Indonesia, we could set up the medical, but had to wait until the embassy contacted us to set an interview date.

2. No, you do not need to use a new intent to marry form. As for passport photos, the beneficiarywill need to have to upload one for the DS-160 and probably will need to bring passport photos to the interview and/or medical exam, but I don't know the requirements in Bangkok.
