1. The petitioner (USC) receives the letter from NVC.

2. NVC is not very good with sending out letters. I received my letter months after our NOA2, and I was already married at that point. Other people get their letter in a timely manner. There is a wide range.

3. My recommendations for calling NVC are a) right when it opens or b) an hour or so before it closes and c) using a phone with auto redial.

4. CSC is kinda slow at getting files to NVC. 21-30 days is typical.

I had little hassle calling NVC. I called about 6 to 8 pm CST, and had to be put on hold for about.. 20 - 30 mins before speaking with someone about the case. Took less than 3 minutes to get all the info I needed. Surprisingly, at the time I did call, my case had already shipped out from NVC to Manila. I waited about a week to call after NOA2.

I actually did finally get through tonight; I hit redial a few times and got a person. I got my case and invoice number, but nothing else really? He just said to watch my email.

That's all that NVC will give you. Yes, the consulate should e-mail you in the near future. You can also now track your case on the state dept website to see when it will arrive at the consulate.

Oh wow! Where does it say when it will arrive? I checked the CEAC site and it said "In Transit". Our NOA2 was 6-10-15, and I thought giving it 30 days was best, but we haven't received a thing. I would love to be able to set a wedding date.

The CEAC site will tell you when it's at the consulate I forget the exact wording. "Ready" if memory serves.

When you call the NVC and you get a busy signal, simply hang up and IMMEDIATELY dial again. Don't wait 5 minutes and then redial, do it right away. I've dialed over 80 times within 2 minutes before just to get through. If you want your case number, you need to be persistent and keep calling until you get it. I called every day for 4 weeks straight until I had mine.

St Lukes will also accept the confirmation page of your visa interview.

The only original form you need from your fiance is the I-134. All others can be copies.

I'm having major problems with NVC. I can't get any information out of them.i got my NOA2 5/28/15. My application was sent to the Department of State 6/8/15. I called about a week later 6/17 and they said they received it 6/15. Now every time I have called since they said they don't have it yet and please wait 35 days. It's been 35 days since NOA2. Any insights? I feel like I have no power. My grandmother just passed away and I really want my fiance here for her memorial service. I'm so devastated by this whole process. I thought the NVC was supposed to be the easy and fast part. Everyone else's who has been approved after mine has already been sent to the consulate

yes,i still do not have a case number.i tried calling them.it's been 25 days since my noa2 approval.

Your probably in AP which is Additional checks on your petition. I was in AP as well. no worries they can not deny your application or send it back once it is approved by USCIS. that would be my guess. Keep trying to call. you have to be persistent on the dialing. hang up redial hang up redial etc.. Once you reach them you can get your case number and they will tell you that you are in AP. that would be the only reason why it (k1)stays at NVC so long. my application stayed there about 20 days and my counterparts here on VJ were out of there in 3-5 days. So I feel your frustration. You must be persistent in calling that is the only way to really understand what is going on. and without the case number you will not be able to track on the website. Once I checked on the 20th day it went from at NVC to in Transit to Ready all in a matter of hours so it went pretty quick after that. Hopefully you can use this wait time to get some of your documents together. USC needs tax transcripts letters from employer W2 ,paystubs and the Affidavit of Support filled out and signed and sent to beneficiary this can not be a copy of that document I134, so there are things you can do while you wait make sure the beneficiary has the passport, police certificate the correct birth certificate etc. these documents have cause extra delay for me so I am happy I started gathering them before my papers were sent to the embassy. Sorry for your wait but it will be over soon.
