Which way do I go?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

About 2 weeks ago I received an email stating that my case was sent to NVC. I haven't heard anything since. When do I get my case number? Will it come via mail? What should I prepare my fiancé to do now? When can he begin the online DS-160 form? Can he only fill that out after the case number has been given or after he receives a packet from the embassy in his country?

I would really appreciate if someone out their could help me. Thank you.

Based on the fact you have not received a paper NOA2 yet, I can't say for certain if your case has reached the NVC.

Eventually you may also receive a notice from the NVC stating they have sent the case to the embassy... but they are very slow about that.

You can call 603-334-0700. This is the NVC's immigrant line. It's not toll free and you can expect to be put on hold for a lengthy amount of time if you get through. They are open from 7am to 12am EST. It's often best to try right before they open to get in the queue. If the case is there, you'll answer some questions and they'll give you the new case number. If it is not there, they will tell you to try again in 30 days.. but you can call them as much as you'd like. When you receive the number you can put it into CEAC to find out if it has reached the embassy yet. It will say ''ready'' when it is. https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx

Depending on what embassy your fiancé is using will depend on if they receive a notice in the mail, which describes their next steps.. which would be having a medical, filling out the DS160, and any other consulate specific forms.

Thank you for such a prompt response. This information clarifies some things for me and I did receive the paper NOA2 so I hope the case has reached the NVC. Thanks again.
