I-130 Appoved, what's next?

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I'm the US Citizen and just received my NOA2 for my wife in the Philippines. They forwarded our case to the NVC as of Jan 8, 2020. 

 

My question is, what will happen next and how soon? I wasn't clear on if they will be sending paperwork to me here in the US or both me and my wife. Thanks!

You won't get any paperwork sent to you. You will get an email from NVC with your case number and invoice number. From there you will log onto CEAC and pay fees, then once fees are cleared, fill out DS260 and upload documents. Then you will wait 6-8 weeks for NVC to review your documents and either mark you case complete or tell you if anything is missing or needs to be replaced. Check out the guides on this website and NVC thread

Wait is 5 to 6 months before you get email from NVC about fees. Read about form 864 which will be part of document require to submit.

Nope. Months. 

Unpredictable at this time. Some IOE are starting to get movement and case numbers and some are still waiting. Assuming they are finally figuring out how to transfer IOE cases to NVC it likely won't stay "months" for long

My i-130 got approved late December, I got my NVC case ID 3 weeks later via email (emails were sent to my husband's email as well as my own), as well as paper mail sent to his address in the USA with the case ID. 

 

In the meantime you can prepare your civil documents!
