No Consulate Contact! HELP!

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

About 5 weeks ago my fiance and I received our I-797 Notice of Action in which we were told to wait for contact from our consulate (here in London) for information on how to schedule an interview.
 

I have been waiting and waiting, doing research online where it says to contact them after 2 weeks if I have heard nothing. I have contacted the US Embassy in London twice but have been ignored on both occasions. Could someone please help me with some tips on how better to contact them (they don't take phone calls), or how long it should take to hear from them? Because I'm starting to get frustrated!

 

Any help would be incredible.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

David

The next step is your petition was sent to NVC. And they process it before forwarding it to the embassy. It seems to be averaging about 4 weeks now before NVC receives the case. Then another couple of weeks to process it.

Here’s how you can contact NVC to see if they have it and assigned a case number.

E-mail: NVCInquiry@state.gov

Subject line:  USCIS Receipt number from your I-797 Notice of Action (NOA)

Body of email:   "Requesting case file number"   (plus include below required information)

 

REQUIRED SECURITY INFORMATION:

(You are required to provide the following security information with each inquiry to receive a case specific response):

 

* USCIS Receipt Number from your NOA-2  (Place in the subject line of the e-mail).

* Petitioner's name and date of birth.

* Beneficiary's name and date of birth.

 

K-1 are processed like an immigrant visa, but are NOT immigrant visas, so they fall into a completely different class of their own.

K-1 visa:  1-603-334-0888 Operator assistance is available Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM (Eastern Time) . 

8 to 8 central 

What to Prepare Before Calling:

You will need the following information before you call:

– Name and date of birth of the beneficiary

– Name and date of birth of the petitioner

– Receipt number from your NOA-2

London won't contact you until NVC forwards the file to them. NVC will contact the petitioner when they have forwarded the file.

The letter from London will tell you to follow the London K1 instructions on their website found here https://uk.usembassy.gov/visas/fiancee-2/applying-for-the-visa/

London IV unit uses a contact form for communicating with them https://uk.usembassy.gov/iv-contact/
