Posted (edited)

It's been 28 days since we got our NOA2. We called the NVC yesterday and they gave us the case number. They also told us that the petition didn't go to the consulate in my country yet.

 

My question is what can I do with the case number now while waiting for the arrival of the petition ? Can I proceed with the DS-160 application or Should I wait till I get contacted by the consulate in my country.

 

Thank you.

Thank you.

check the status on the CEAC website and when ready you can setup an interview day and start the medical, but that might be depending on your beneficiaries country.

You should use the case number here to track your case (visa type should always be set to immigrant ): https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx?App=NIV

 

It should change to "In Transit" when it's on the way to your embassy and then to "Ready" when your consulate has received it and you're allowed to schedule your interview. your profile isn't set up so I'm unsure of what country you're from but you will probably need to email your consulate and request packet 3 when your case status is set to "Ready". You can FILL OUT the DS-160 but do not electronically sign or submit the application until your case status is at least set to "Ready" just to be safe.

When you fall for someone with all your heart you just want to be together forever, right?

What to do after NOA2:

Spoiler

After USCIS approves the petition, it is sent to the National Visa Center (NVC). The NVC will assign you a case number and send your petition to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate where your fiancé(e) lives.

The NVC will mail/email you a letter when it sends your fiancé(e) case to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate. Once you receive this letter, inform your fiancé(e) to take the below-listed actions to apply for a K-1 visa and prepare for the interview.

You are welcome. Now that you are this far in the process I would advise browsing through the Egypt portal here because there are a lot of topics that might help you further with the process: http://www.visajourney.com/portals/index.php?country=Egypt&tpage=1&ppage=5&forum=80

 

Also you should get the instructions for Packet 3 from your embassy when you email them after your case arrives there and is ready.
