I just call the NVC today, they told me that they received our case yesterday on the 3rd and it will take them for 42 days just to put it in the system. Are these people for real. why do they just pull random numbers, 60 days, 45 days.....they just don't care.

I see your question was answered already (my fiancee also had to redial 19 times on average before getting through to the NVC).

Now you're at Dublin, email them. They should have your file already. If you have your DBL case number from when you called the NVC, quote that at them. I got my Packet 3 from Dublin just a day after they confirmed that they received our case because I had been emailing them about it before. It took a week for it to get from the NVC to Dublin.

Hi, Yes they gave me a case number and then yesterday on 8/6/15 Dublin sent me a email confirming and gave me the packet instructions in the email, but my fiance hasn't recieved the packet yet in Ireland where he is

Here's the funny thing... I (Beneficiary in Ireland) got the packet 3 in an email only because I had been emailing them already and probably annoying them. They wouldn't have had my email address before then as we didn't give it when we were filing. We gave my (American) fiancee's email address on the application form. We were expecting them to email it to her, as they had only her email officially. But she hasn't heard anything from them and it's been a few days.

As far as I know Dublin ONLY deal in email now, so the Packet 3 you were sent is THE Packet 3. Forward it to him so he can do what he needs to do with it. Technically yes, HE (and I) should have been the ones to get the Packet 3, but I think it's because they only deal in emails now that Packet 3s are being sent to the Petitioners, because it's the Petitioners' emails being written on the initial applications right where they sign.

I have a friend who went through the K-1. Neither she or her fiance got a Packet 3 until she (the Beneficiary in Ireland) contacted the Embassy about it and they sent it to her then. Somehow they slipped through the cracks, OR accidentally deleted it in junk mail.

It might also be because I emailed the Embassy back, confirming that I did get the Packet 3, that they marked it on our case and didn't bother sending my fiancee the email in America, like they would have if I hadn't been already emailing them. When you got the Packet 3 email did you email back confirming receipt? My email asked me to do so.

Oh, I hope that makes sense!
