Indonesian beneficiary : validity of noa2 and interview schedule

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I am currently in United States and our noa2 was April 17. I plan on going home and finish the k1 process once nvc has already transfered my case to the embassy in Jakarta.

My question is, do we have a time limit as to when to submit the k1 visa? And so you guys wait for the embassy to contact you or proactively contacting them in advance?

Also, does the embassy arrange for the interview or can we reschedule?

I still don't know how to time my coming home because I just want it to be efficient. Any info will be appreciated. Thank you!

Submit the application before the petition is going to expired. For US embassy in Jakarta, they will contacted your fiancé first, ask your information. After that, they will send you Packet 3 and after all your docs are ready ( medical exam, I-134, etc) then you can ask them to scheduled your interview (embassy scheduled the interview for the applicant).

If you ever lived in another countries more than 6 months, then you have to get police certificate from those places. Please, plan ahead to avoid delaying of your visa process.

thank you for your info! so i guess it will be alright to go home after my fiance gets the email from them. i've only been here for two months or so and our petition was approved unexpectedly fast.

are you going for naturalization process? i guess they haven't passed the bill on dual citizenship in indonesia yet.

Before you are going back home, ask your fiancé to prepare I-134 and all supporting docs such as W-2, tax return, and any other-related documents. Don't forget also his letter intent of marry for updating.

Naturalization is still long way to go for me, lol. I am still waiting for my green card to get approved.

Hi everyone, I am currently in United States and our noa2 was April 17. I plan on going home and finish the k1 process once nvc has already transfered my case to the embassy in Jakarta.

1. No, there is no time limit. Our NOA2 expired before even reaching NVC (long story), but the embassy in Jakarta extended it 4 months automatically.

2. As Girl from Celebes said, the embassy schedules it after you let them know you have put together packet 3.

3. They are pretty prompt in replying to e-mails, so if you had to reschedule it, I don't think it would be too problematic, but you might be delayed a few more weeks.

Assuming all goes smoothly, the embassy in Jakarta will probably be getting your petition in mid-May. Also, when my fiancee's interview was scheduled 6 weeks after telling the embassy she had all her documents ready. Plan on your interview date being a month or more after you tell the embassy you have everything ready for the interview.
