 Hey everyone, 

I just got my NOA2 ūüėá now I'm trying to understand what will happen next.¬†Do we need to submit anything to the NVC and can my fiance start to prepare his police record and stuff? When will they send him a notice telling us what to do next?

Yes your fiance can start for pcc ( police clearence  certificate ) it gonna take 7 days to get pcc it should from regional passport office which they want and its valid for 6 months , if they want anything they will send email or petitioner if your case is transferred to nvc for example today they gonna keep the case with tem from 2 to 4 weeks , you can call them after 10 days or 2 weeks they will give you case number . Then they will transfer that case to your local embassy ie mumbai once the case is intransit from nvc they send email to petitioner , once case is ready then beneficiary will get packet 4 from local embassy .

As @BJ & Christine suggested you are better off in the group @Mozam recommended by the link he posted. There you will find others at the same stage as you. There are already members there from India who are processing through Mumbai Embassy. I'm going to give you some information. Valuable information. If you use it, it will save you a lot of headaches. I'm also going to give links to @A & R thread for those who are specifically processing in Mumbai. Great group of people sharing their experience.

 

Here is the letter that you will receive from Mumbai Embassy. Read it over carefully and follow the instructions. Another member of VJ added some additional information contained below which outlines what he experienced.

Once you received your case number from NVC,  I would recommend you fill out DS-160 form and submit. Some say the packet 3 letter is nothing just waste of time same thing they have mention which you easily get from USCIS website when you called to the clinics to book your medical appointment date they will ask you have you received your packet letter or not. Just say yes and booked the appointment date however you will receive that letter within 2 weeks the day you will get your NVC number.

Go on USCIS website make your account with password and then pay your fees to Citibank or Axis bank. They will give you reference number. With that number you can book your biometric and interview appointment date. The fees are 18,500 and for medical but I recommend that you carry 20,000 with you in the event you need more. Be sure to  keep at least 7 days gap between medical and interview.

After you get your case number from NVC it would be a good idea if you were to connect with the VJ sub forum for all things dealing with the US Embassy in Colombia and they will answer your questions for the processing of your visa from their personal experience. Link:

Get the US Embassy Colombian K-1 Packet 3 (P3) at  https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7hB3bl9Snfkb0NiMVFUd2JsVjA/view  as this is your bible needed to complete and receive your visa. The required documents are included and use the EL as a check list. Once you have completed or gathered the required documents you'll be ready for your interview. If it is not on the Embassy letter, it probably is not needed.

 

Last but not least, READ the pages on the US Embassy website for your country so that you are up to speed.

That question has been answered in the links I gave you. You have to do some of the heavy lifting grasshopper. Re-read my  post that you just responded to for my recommendation.
