I-130 not received by NVC - pilot electronic process

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I submitted my I130 petition January 14, 2019 and was approved by USCIS on July 9, 2019. It has been over 8 weeks and NVC has still not received my case. I emailed NVCResearch and received the following response:

 

Based on your USCIS receipt number, your case benefited from a pilot electronic process for the I-130 petition. USCIS reviewed and approved your petition faster than average cases of this type as we develop the fully electronic transfer of data from USCIS to the Department of State. 

 

I am having a difficult time finding other people who are in the same situation or who have received the same response and had luck later on. Is there anyone that can give some insight as to tips and/or what I can expect for the future?

I also received similar message from NVC on Monday 16th september. My I130 was approved on 5 september 2019 and my receipt no starts with IOE. 

HI, I'm glad to see I'm not the only one. I hate to provide bad news, but mine still has not been received by the NVC. It's been over 10 weeks now. Furthermore, someone from my many calls to the NVC informed me that the NVC does not even have the database set up to receive these petitions and has no estimated date of when they will get it. I called and spoke to a Tier 2 at USCIS (no one at USCIS even seems to know about this pilot process) and he put in a service request for me a week ago to find out more information on where my case is. I am still waiting for a response. He told me to wait till Sept. 26. I am considering contacting a congressman or the ombudsman, but am afraid to do so too early and have them tell me to wait till the service request is answered. At the same time, if it does reach the 90 days I am thinking I could have it expedited with NVC later...it's a tough balance of time and a frustrating process. Keep me updated as to if you get any updates on your case. Maybe you'll have better luck.

Sure man. Yes it seems that NVC doesn’t even have a database to receive these electronic petitions. But there are few people on this forum who got there case number in 4 months with IOE receipt.

In my case, I received an email from askNVC after 8 days of my approval of i13O.

Our priority date for our I-130 is actually the same as yours, 1/14/19, and it was approved on 4/1/19.  We were also part of that pilot electronic process, and we still have no NVC case number.

 

Nobody seems to know where the file is, and it cannot be re-sent as USCIS says they have no copy.  I made my last service request a few weeks ago and if not resolved in 2 more weeks, I will contact my congressman.

 

I can say that my calls to both USCIS and NVC have become more pleasant as the reps actually seem concerned now instead of merely annoyed.  And they always remind me that we are still ahead of the other Nebraska applications that are taking more than a year to approve.

Wow LarryDay, I am sorry to hear that. Mine went originally to Texas and when I got an RFE it seems as if it was transferred to Nebraska. I have noticed the calls are more pleasant as time passes as well. I'm hoping we both find out more soon. Have you tried contacting the ombudsman?

 

That is a pretty quick response Eddie90. It took them about a month for NVCinquiry to respond to me and over two weeks for NVC Research to respond. When I try to ask NVCResearch more details regarding this pilot process, I just get the same exact email (even though I copy and paste that email I already received).

Our case approved Aug 6, 2019 and until now NVC still not received our case.

Wow, they took one whole month to just copy paste and send the message. Did u guys tried contacting any immigration attorney? May be they can give some better direction? 

Well, that time they took about 2 weeks to copy and paste. I haven't yet; I think an attorney would just be an expensive cost to be doing the same thing I am already doing- basically an expensive middleman. I've read other posts on here from people who were waiting 2 months longer than me who, after persistence following these ridiculous processes, are finally moving forward with their cases being received by NVC. If I don't hear anything by Sept. 26, I'll reach out to a congressman and/or ombudsman.
