What’s next after the NOA?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Okay so I filed my fiancé k1 visa in March. We got an RFE In October sent it in by November and now it’s December 9th and I just received the NOA! The petition was approved thank god! Now it says they will send everything to the visa processing center and that could take 2-4 weeks. I just had a few questions for anyone who has had experience with this. 

 

1. Do I do anything else at this point? Or just wait?

 

2. How long will it take to get an interview at my fiancé’s country? And does the embassy make the appointment or does he? 

 

3. What documents are needed for the interview at the embassy? I read something we need the whole copy of the petition I sent? Trying to gather everything so we can be ready for the interview. 

 

4. The medical exam he needs before he goes to the interview do they send info on this to me (petitioner) or him? Only asking because all of his mail goes to the post office because he lives in a small village and he doesn’t have an actual address only the post office receives his mail.

 

thank you all so much for reading this lengthy post and I appreciate your help in advance ❤️

Congratulations first of all. Do remember to update your timeline here with RFE info and NOA2 info!

 

I believe for Indonesia you will need to start working on the following.

Collect the following documents

Many of our answers are predicated on the information you supply in your profile. When we look at the left column and can't determine your timeline or your Embassy it's hard for us to give you a factual answer. If you look at the profile of others here, they have a flag for their country, so it makes it easy for us to reply as we can quickly determine your Embassy. Our answers will sometimes be tailored to a specific Embassy hence the reason for you to complete your profile.

 

So, if you could help yourself out and complete your profile that sure would help us out when we want to reply to your question with factual information.

 

Go to the top right of this page select your name (it's on the upper right-hand corner)>my profile>[below your picture on the right column] edit my profile. Scroll to the bottom and fill in "Immigration Info". There now we can better serve you.

 

Thanks
