Hi,

I am just curious. Guys with NOA2, can you tell us waiting, what time of the day you received your text or mail, that you've been approved.

Maybe all approval text or mail, are sent out at a particular time of the day, depending on service center.

Thanks

Back in August 2014 when our I-129F petition was approved, my then-fiance/now-husband received the NOA2 text in the middle of the night.

This is a tough question. A lot of people get the text in the evening 8-10pm (eastern time). Every now and then it's in the middle of the night. Sometimes notifications are delayed and people aren't getting the text/emails until the morning (around 9-10am). I've seen people recently report getting text/emails for RFEs in the afternoon.

FWIW, I got my approval text at 9:00am the day after it was approved and my 'sent to NVC' status at 9:30pm the day it was sent.

A thousand lives if I could give,
I would spend it all again with you,
Don't forget where you belong,
Only with me you are strong,
Not even the gods above can break,
