2018 Received an email from NVC, what's next?

Hello, here I am again. So here is my concern.

 

This morning I received an email from NVC (PLEASE SEE EMAIL BELOW). I have checked the status on ceac.state.gov and it says that our case is still "In Transit".

I called USEM and I was advised to wait for the next email stating that I can already set up an appointment for an interview.

 

Once the status is already "Ready" in the ceac.state.gov and we don't get the letter or email from NVC or USEM.

Should I go ahead and just get a screenshot of this and bring it to the interview along with this email that I received today?

Are these letters required to be brought in the interview?

 

Or should I just wait for the NVC confirmation letter or USEM letter?

 

I read a lot of people stating that the letter from NVC or USEM did not come.

Just worried and I want to start whatever I can do from here on to avoid delays.

 

Thank you. Sorry for asking lots of questions. I've bee anxious about the process. Hehehe. Peace!

 

Dear ********,

The National Visa Center (NVC) received your fiancé (e)’s/spouse’s approved I-129F petition from U.S.
Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). NVC will now forward the petition to the U.S. Embassy
or Consulate in Manila, Philippines. Please note that the transfer process can take several weeks. The
U.S. Embassy or Consulate will contact your fiancé (e)/spouse when they are ready to process his or her
petition.


Next steps:
Go to our website http://nvc.state.gov/k1 to learn how to apply for a K visa and prepare for the visa
interview.


Please keep the following information for your records:
Case Number: MNL**********
USCIS Receipt Number *************
Principal Applicant: ******** *****
Petitioner: ****** ***** *******
Interview Location: Manila, Philippines
Post Address:

U.S. Embassy
1201 Roxas Boulevard
Manila
Philippines

Thank you for your patience in the immigrant visa process.
Sincerely,
U.S. Department of State
National Visa Center

Hi good day i don't know much about how things are done in your country nor am i an expert but just to give my advise, the email has given you a clear outline of what is to be done next with the exception of scheduling your medical exam, which you should be able to do now, but i don't know if your the petitioner asking for the advice to pass on to your fiance, i would advise that you take this time before the letter comes in the mail to get your medical done, request your police certificate and affidavit of support documents, but still i believe that the interview date and confirmation number is needed in some countries for the medical exam together with passport size photos so those are just some of the things that you can look into while you wait. good luck to you.

HI Reyhan! I suggest to wait for the email from the embassy. I know 4 people went to the embassy without it and they were asked to reschedule their interview. Just make sure you have a week (or 2 weeks) allowance from "Case Ready" to interview date.

I also read it from a Facebook group that the NVC letter/ eligibility letter (not sure what it really is) like the actual letter they will mail to the fiance in the Philippines, is required at the interview and were to asked to resched if they were not able to present this and that you cant set the interview or pay the fee until the status is Ready. Is this just for CR1? Or for a certain type of visa? Is this a new policy implemented? I dont find it on the official website yet but people were talking about it in Facebook lol
