Can anyone with experience tell me the timeline of NVC receiving your case to when the give you a case number? They received it on Sep 24th and it's going to be CEAC for IR2

Currently it's taking about 3 to 4 week before they assign case and Invoice number. they will notify via email. keep eye on email.

Our three cases received at NVC on Sept 6th. Took only 21 days for parents to get case number but for father-in-law haven't yet received - 36 days and counting (called NVC yesterday and was asked to wait until November!)


Luckily father-in-law is in no hurry to immigrate... !


So basically YMMV - Your mileage may vary!
