NOA2 lost in the mail?????

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

From studying the VJ flowchart there doesn't appear to be any "backup plan" if NOA2 gets lost in the mail.  It appears that the next step is for the petitioner to contact NVC to verify receipt of the I-129F but that step presumes the petitioner has received NOA2.  Nearly everyone around me on Igor's list has been approved including a few as much as 2 weeks further down the list.  I found this https://egov.uscis.gov/casestatus/mycasestatus.do on the USCIS website but it appears to be nothing more than a pacifier.

If it helps, we haven’t received our NOA2 either. NOA1 is from 7th March. To be honest I think it all depends who’s desk it falls on and how lucky you get. I’ve lost faith in the system completely because our petition was sent away to the appeals office by mistake. USCIS still haven’t updated us on our case, even missed the date they said they would get back to us by.

 

hopefully your experience is better, good luck.

I never had any faith in the system to begin with.  especially with the current commander in chief.  Good luck to you, too.

Ugh... why do so many people believe that everything bad that happens within the United States is because of: "Meanie Mr. Trump!" people watch wayyy too much CNN, CBS etc. 🙄

This process has nothing to do with Trump, at all. USCIS and entities alike are unaffected by the president, they are their own institutions with their own "commanders in chief" 

The United State is probably one of the most incredibly ramified, bureaucracy filled country I've seen, no single person can control everything.  

If you already lost faith in the system this early on in the race, then you are doomed, for faith in the system is what brings success. 

You, me and all of us went in this process fully and willingly accepting that our approvals could come anywhere from in between 6 to 8 months according to official USCIS timelines. I've said it before and I will say it again,  exceptions should never be taken as norm, even if they appear to be a trend.

This process and them all have hurdles and bumps everywhere, some bigger than others, but that's all they are, bumps, not an impenetrable wall. Learn when and how to take action and you will be successful. 

Your time will come, and you must believe in that, for now, just sit tight and wait and that's everything you must do, wait, good things come to those who wait, users such as @Sarge2155 are a great example of this.

Ok, first of all....let's lay off of the political hacking and rhetoric from both sides. It is non-productive and divisive!! :wow:

 

You will need to get a copy of your Form I-797, K1 Visa Petition Approval Notice (NOA2) from USCIS. You are required to submit a copy of that notice later on during the AOS Process. Some folks have been fortunate to have received electronic notification from USCIS of approval of their K1 visa petition (NOA2), and have successfully used that email notice in lieu of the official Form I-797 approval notice. I would suggest that you get on the phone and get hold of a Tier 2 rep to try to get them to send you a duplicate, if you didn't receive the initial one. 

 

There is an official USCIS procedure, involving filling out Form I-824 along with a $465 filing fee should all else fail and you still need to receive a NOA2. That filing fee would be enough for me to call them up and try to get a duplicate sent without the fee.....

 

YMMV

 

Good luck on your immigration journey.

I would suggest that you get on the phone and get hold of a Tier 2 rep to try to get them to send you a duplicate, if you didn't receive the initial one. How would you suggest getting anybody on the phone let alone a tier 2 person.  There's only one USCIS support number I know of and they tell you if you insist on talking to a person you will be told the same thing you can read on their website which is of no value.  The information I've managed to obtain is that no inquires will be accepted until at least 7.5 months past NOA1 which puts me into December.  There needs to be a simple, reliable way on line to find out if a NOA2 has been issued using the WAC number on the NOA1 form.  I have been to this   https://egov.uscis.gov/casestatus/showSplash.do   webpage but, frankly their disclaimer is intended to discourage reliability in the available information.

 

There is an official USCIS procedure, involving filling out Form I-824 along with a $465 filing fee should all else fail and you still need to receive a NOA2. That filing fee would be enough for me to call them up and try to get a duplicate sent without the fee.....   Only $465???   Such a deal.  That sounds about right for the 10 minutes it would take to find out if a NOA2 had ever been issues against a given NOA1 WAC number.

 

YMMV

 

Good luck on your immigration journey.

Hey, don't go off on me!:wow: I am the guy that is trying to provide you with your viable options. I am not the one that got their NOA2 lost in the mail. :bonk: I will tell you what I am willing to do to help you, ram 1009, I will donate exactly 1/2 of the salary I receive from VJ towards your Form I-824 filing fee. Just write your address on the back of a twenty-dollar bill and mail it to me help the defray the cost of the currency transfer fees.

Call the USCIS number at 7.05am Eastern time ... go through the push button system .:. When you get the Tier 1 operator, request to speak to a Tier 2 supervisor. Accept a call back option if you need to...repeat process as often as needed until you speak to the T2 Officer. Tier 1 only have access to the same info you can see on the website .. it’s not their fault .. that’s the way their job is structured .. but the T2 can get deeper into the system. 

 

We have all had to deal with the system.
