We are happy to share that my Fiancé received our NOA2 or approval Letter in the mail today. It was sooner than expected as indicated in the letter it was Approved on 10 April 2019. We filed last Nov 19, 2018 and exactly 4 months we received USCIS request for evidence, which we sent to them right away and 9 days before the 5th month of our application we received the approval letter. We have been checking our status online regularly but to our surprise the approval was only sent thru mail and NOT updated in the USCIS website. It was such a relief, for now we just need to wait for further instructions from NVC for my medical and Visa processing. Hopefully soon. I☺️

Hello there..we have the same NOA2 date as yours.. Have you received your MNL case number yet ? We are still waiting for ours..

Please join us over in the April group for NOA2 - NVC where the first post on this thread I share some tips to make your life a little less stressful.

 

Here is some additional information to help you navigate through the process once your case is in the Philippines. Hank's website link below contains specific instructions for the forms needed, where to go, and when to do it. Very helpful to many.

Also, there is a sub-forum for the Philippines here on VJ that you should be a part of. It's a good place to read what others are experiencing which will only prepare you for your interview.

Manila US Embassy states that a scanned copy of the signed I-134 is fine, if you don't have the original.
