Maybe a stupid question but pls be patient

Hi guys,

I got an NOA2 dated April 3. I wasn't sure what the next step is.

I called Nebraska Svc Center today (May 5) and they said that on April 15 our case was shipped to Department of State who will process the Visa. They referred me to www.state.gov

So if we want to move things along what should we do next? Do I call NVC for a case #? Anything else I should be doing? Also I don't see a number for NVC on my letter of approval from Nebraska Service center. How do I find that number to call?

Also the letter (NOA2) said my wife would be shipped some things - will they really ship documents to her in the Philippines instead of to me here in the U.S.?

Thanks for any help/guidance/advice.

This is the number for NVC 1-603-334-0700 they are open 7am to midnight eastern time best time to call is early in the morning right when they open or late at night right before they close

You will need to call them and get your case and invoice number. Once you have the numbers you can log in on the ceac website and fill out the DS261 choice of agent form and pay the Aos fee

Do not wait on the NVC to send anything or you will be waiting extra time

Also when you call to get your case number you can give the NVC yours and your wife e-mail

that link will help some one have a general ideal of the nvc process part of the visa. However to save a lot of time the steps are not right

These are the steps to do as it will help speed up the process at the NVC

step I. call and get case and invoice number

step 2. fill out Ds-261 choice of agent form

step 3. pay AOS fee

step 4. send in AOS and IV packets

Step 5. call and have the NVC review the DS-261 if they have not done it yet. keep calling till they do, some agents will tell you they can not, but it can be review over the phone

step 6. pay the IV fee

step 7. fill out the DS-260 visa application form

step 8. wait for case complete which should not be much longer

good luck

I'm getting this error when I try to sign in to fill out DS-261.

I'm using the case # and invoice # that I got on the phone from NVC. Has anyone else had this happen? I tried case # with and without the MNL letters that precede the numbers. The rep on the phone said my invoice has already been mailed to me but I haven't received it in the mail yet so I'd expect it to be working on the web site now right? I mean my case # and invoice # should be "in the system."

Also I'm the "petitioner" not the "applicant" right? The web site asked me to choose which I am.

The selected Case Number and Invoice Identification Number combination you entered does not match our records. Please try again or contact the National Visa Center for further assistance.

FYI, for others having this problem I reached NVC and they said the DoS web site is having problems and that's why I'm getting this error. They said a supervisor will get back to me maybe in a few days about this but in the meantime I should try the website again later in the week to see if it's fixed.
