Update on petition.

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

A couple of weeks ago I posted about our K1 visa petition being approved on 21st June 2019 and still not having heard anything from the NVC to date. 

 

Well, we are still waiting for the NVC to receive our approved petition from USCIS. This is because USCIS only sent the approved petition to the NVC on 5th August, over six weeks after approving it. 

 

Is this kind of thing usual? I mean are USCIS always this slow on posting out approved petitions? And should me and my fiancee expect another long wait until we hear anything from the NVC?

 

I know all cases are different so I'm not expecting anything concrete just some rough ideas!

 

Also we only know that USCIS sent the petition on the 5th because my fiancee, who is the petitioner, spent almost two hours on the phone to USCIS and the NVC yesterday. As everyone is aware getting through the phone system to be able to speak to a human is hard!

 

Cheers!

We've been calling the NVC every week. And this week we found out that it had only been posted last week. I'm just wondering how long it would take for it to arrive at the NVC and how long it would be until we can move on to the next step.

This was our process timeline during the NVC Stage:

Paperwork Received- 12/14/2018

Case Number Date- 12/19/2018

Paperwork Left- 01/08/2019

Everyone is different of course! I would reach out to others who have similar timelines. See if they're experiencing the same thing you are...

Last year at this time, our NOA2 took six months, but from approval to the petition landing at the US consulate in Auckland was something like 17 days.  This year it seems that the approval time for petitions is significantly shorter, but that the delays come elsewhere in the process.

 

All told, US immigration is not fast, and patience is key.
