I received the I-797 NOA dated 12-27-18 with information indicating the approved petition was sent to the National Visa Center.  As of 02-18-2019, I have received two emails from NVC indicating that the information has not been input into the computer system yet, so a case number can't be provided.  Other postings within this topic seem to indicate the wait time to be approximately 8 weeks to receive a case number from NVC.  In my case, 8 weeks will be 02-21-19.  This is a petition to bring my unmarried, minor child to the USA (age 9) to the USA from Philippines.  HOPEFULLY, the ridiculous US Government Shutdown has not adversely affected the NVC, but who knows???  For the benefit of all who are experiencing this delay at NVC, I will post an update when I receive my case number (maybe this week??????????)  If anyone has a comment for information, please post as I would appreciate it.  Thank you!

Shutdown is over. It shouldn't affect the case. 8 weeks is the normal time it takes for them to input the case into the system and generate a case number. It is an estimate only. One other way to find out the case number is to call the NVC at 603-334-0700. Put that number to speed dial. Since you are close to your 8 weeks, I would call them once every couple days until you have that case number.

i kinda had the same problem so i called the NVC. They technically transfer the case from USCIS to NVC but the transfer takes a bit of time.when i talked to the NVC they quote that it takes 6 weeks from when they receive to the point where the open it and direct you a case number. Sure enough.. the 5 weeks and 6 days later, they opened my case and it got moving. theyre just pretty slow.. good luck

**UPDATE**  02-19-19      A call to the NVC revealed how wonderful it must be to have a job in the federal government!  Talk about no stress!  The person at NVC was very nice, HOWEVER, I was advised that it takes approximately one month for the information to be received at NVC once it is sent by USCIS.  Amazing!  How can it take a month to be received at NVC?????  Is it sent there on the back of a 3 legged turtle???  Anyway, the nice person at NVC also told me that it can take up to 8 weeks to input into the NVC computer system FROM THE DATE RECEIVED AT NVC!!!!!  Once again, amazing.  And I thought service at the post office was s l o w.  So...a month to get from USCIS to NVC...and then another 8 weeks or so just to be input into the computer system there.  Once input into the system, which is usually about 3 months after it leaves USCIS, NVC should issue a case number and instructions.  So, for everyone out there who is wondering what happens after your petition is approved by USCIS....here you go...now you know.
