K-1 filers - JAN/FEB 2019 NOA2--> Montreal Consulate

64 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm starting this thread for K-1 filers with a Jan or Feb 2019 NOA2 headed for a montreal interview.  

I find the Nov/Dec thread very helpful.  

Hopefully, we can do the same here. :)

 

I'm NOA2 Jan 22 still waiting for the NVC to receive my case. I believe Montreal interviews are already scheduling at end of March.

Thank you for starting this! 

Have you called the NVC yet?

I've called the 0888 number 3 times.  I've spoken with "Nadine" every time (she must think I'm crazy).  The last time I phoned was Friday Feb 8.  They had not received my case.  I'm really hoping they get it next week so maybe we can make the Feb 19 shipment to embassies.

 

Have you called?

My NOA2 was January 29. I'm due may 31 with our baby so I plan on doing the interview after that now :) no sense in rushing since Montreal seems so backed up

That's a great attitude.  It blows my mind that Phillipines is able to book interviews a few weeks from the time the embassy receives their case, yet we're looking at about 4 months from NOA2.  Like, NOA2 expiration territory!!

I did😊

I was advised to call once to twice per week until we get our case number. Praying we get it for Valentine’s Day!

I coming up there this upcoming weekend to visit him. Always love more reasons to celebrate!

I’m sure they got backed up from the holidays and postal strikes. They should start moving faster I would think... maybe we will get lucky.

Like @Brylie also said, I think they got WAY backed up by the holidays, postal strike, then shutdown (people say it didn't slow anything but I think all of us over on the Nov/Dec thread would sure say otherwise...). Who knows. I think things are back on schedule, or getting there, and the incoming Jan/Feb applicants will probably move way faster! :)

Wait, Montreal is 4 months backed up?! I thought maybe 1.5-2 months at most?

This is so weird. I called last week to see if USCIS could confirm that our case was forwarded/mailed to the NVC and the lady said that it was mailed but she didn’t know the date. So I decided to call and speak to a tier 2 this morning to try to get the date it was mailed, and the lady said that it had not been forwarded/mailed to the NVC yet and that it can up to 90 days for them to mail it. Waiting for a call back from a tier 2 right now.

It has not, confirmed, been forwarded to the NVC yet.

😢 I’m totally bummed. Was praying for a fast turn around (as I’m sure everyone is)....

she promised it would be within the next two weeks.

Try calling NVC instead.

Petitions arriving to NVC typically have been taking 3-4 weeks from NOA2 to NVC arrival. @Lana&Ivy you will probably be this week or next and @Brylie you will probably be next week or the week after. And I just saw you have been calling NVC.... I'd stick to them over USCIS :)

From what it looks like right now, people with Nov NOA2 have booked March interviews.  Canada took a super long time sending out their P4s, and then everyone got them all at once.  As Meghan said, likely from the holidays, maybe from the shutdown.  Last summer it was about 2.5 months from NOA2 to interview.  Hopefully, they'll catch up and we'll get in there a bit sooner, but I'm not anticipating anything before May.

Ugh.  I'm sorry.  As of friday my case had not reached the NVC.  No idea if it's been sent by USCIS yet. 

 

I *do* know someone from the "JAN 2019 NOA2-NVC" thread with an NOA2 date of Jan 21 was shipped to NVC on Feb 1 and received by NVC on Feb 8.  So that shipment took exactly 1 week.  Just a bit of intel that may or may not be helpful!
