Having your funds removed from your account is a good feeling but it leads to a long wait. Rest assured that things are moving much faster then they did a year ago when it was taking upwards of 7-12 months.

It sure is, I saw the historical times and it looks like it was 3-6 Months those were the good days. Does anyone know why these events occurred at a much faster rate of approvals compared to now?

Yesterday I received NOA1 , I was expecting it to take a few more weeks but I'm NOT complaining :D

 

EDIT: Maybe it's not NOA1 but rather just a receipt. False alarm, but still happy.

For those who have just filed your I-129f application with USCIS, this thread has been created for your needs and for you to be with others experiencing different aspects of this journey. This is a place to ask questions and to share experiences. All are here to learn together. Good luck because this is a long process currently running 5-6 months from filing date for your NOA2 approval.

 

https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/K1_Process_V11.pdf

 

Also, since your application will go through a number of background checks this is a primer on what goes on with the background process.

 

I know it really sucks, but the best way to get through this is to lower your expectations and try not to compare your timeline to anyone else's. Don't forget that the people here on Visa Journey represent a tiny percentage of all the petitions the CSC has to work through! When someone gets to your file you'll hear from them. Stay busy, talk a lot with your fiancé about non-visa stuff, don't forget to hang out with your friends, take up a new hobby, go to a sporting event, and your time will come! Good luck

 

The explanation why is it taking so long.

A "receipt" at this stage is a NOA1. Check for the form number. If it says I-797 then it is a NOA1. If so please update your timeline and then we are good to go.

Was there a question behind the quote that I can help you with?

 

We need a little housekeeping on your end. Many of our answers are predicated on the information you supply in your profile. When we look at the left column and can't determine your timeline OR your Embassy it's hard for us to give you a factual answer. Our answers will sometimes be tailored to a specific Embassy hence the reason for you to complete your profile. If you look at the profile of others here, they have a flag for their country, so it makes it easy for us to reply as we can quickly determine their Embassy. The country that should be used is the country where the interview will take place.

 

So, if you could help yourself out and complete your profile that sure would help us out when we want to reply to your question with factual information.

 

Go to the top right of this page select your name (it's on the upper right-hand corner)>my profile>[below your picture on the right column] edit my profile. Scroll to the bottom and fill in "Immigration Info". There now we can better serve you.

 

Once you finish that then return and you will see a flag in your profile. Select it and see what wonderful information will open up for you.

 

Thanks

Hi. I'm glad you found us and joined the thread. Not much to share with you on what to expect but this is the process (NOA1 to NOA2) that takes the longest. With nothing to do we can only think this is a good place to be to share experiences. They have just started to approve Dec this week. So maybe 4-6 months it will be your turn. I'd say a shorter wait if we didn't have the COVID-19 virus hanging around.

 

We  do need a little housekeeping on your end. Many of our answers are predicated on the information you supply in your profile. When we look at the left column and can't determine your timeline OR your Embassy it's hard for us to give you a factual answer.

Hi again 👋🏾,

 

 So with the advice of a friend I made a copy of everything I sent in my K1 package. While glancing over it, I realized I hadn’t signed one of the papers 😭😭😭. I know. I’m kicking myself in the butt. My question is, should I wait for the RFE or can I be proactive and mail the page that is missing my signature?

Here's a some tricks to use when answering and wanting to quote someone.

 

First, when you use the quote button, go into a LONG posts that you are quoting and if there isn't a need to have the entire post, just delete a small portion of it, but leaving enough of the original post so we can understand what you are replying to.

 

Second, you can use the "@" sign in a blank reply box then begin typing the person's nick to bring up a list with their name, and select their name. If it is done right you should see a blue box around their nick like this @Greenbaum. When you use the @ sign you would use it in a blank reply and not a "+" reply.

Third is just to use the "heart" icon and select "thanks". Don't really need to say thanks in a quote. (using your example you were making a comment and a thank you so they way you presented yourself is fine. :thumbs:
