Made appointment for K1 visa but have not received Packet 3 from Bogota Embassy yet!

So, after confirming that Bogota Embassy had my case, I went ahead and filed DS-160, paid Visa fee and set up ASC appt and Interview. I inquired to the Embassy why we have not received the packet 3/4 and they replied :

Dear Applicant,

We would like to inform you that we have not received all the documentation related to your case form the NVC. As soon as we receive additional information, we will contact you with the instructions on how to proceed with your case.

​ I phoned later and was told that the Embassy has received it, but had not finished assembling the paperwork and "they" have not received a tracking number needed for package and the ASC appointment. She had no idea how long it would take, but the CEAC webite said Embassy received it ( status update ) 8 days ago. Funny after my email inquiry, the status date changed to today.

I made the appointments and air reservations, and hotel, from the advice I read here and am scared to not receive the package before our appointments begin in 9 days! Does anyone know what this extra "tracking number" and how long Bogota will take after reciveung case to sending packet 3/4?

Thanks so much for your help

So, received the email from the Embassy yesterday, the 8th!. Don't know if it was the pleading email I sent to them or not! Anyways, it would have been better to wait as I was supposed to. The time of receipt of our case at the Bogota Embassy and the email instructions was 8 days, FYI. I have attached the newly dated package instructions we received if it helps anyone. Good Luck to All!

Hey, im on the same train as you, I check on the NVC Tracker and it says "ready". I have emailed them and they said, "Thank you for contacting the Immigrant Visa Unit. Your case is not yet in Bogota, please contact the National Visa Center, you will find contact information at https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/national-visa-center/nvc-contact-information.html"  I have already sceduled for interview and medicals and they both require me to bring the email they send out with instructions.

Morning. Its been awhile since this happened. But, if I remember correctly, it seems like it cleared up and just appeared in a few days. I was worried, too, but maybe its just the tracking system isnt synced up exactly with that other system. We had no problems, though. Our experience there was wonderful! Hope this helps and good luck!
