Hi 

 

We applied 1-129f in 2019, after exact 7 months we got our Noa2 approval in March 20 but even after 2.5 months no nvc welcome letter is sent to us, when we call ucsis they say wait 90 days. Is somebody in same situation? Is it due to covid 19 shutdown?

There are various timetables for the activity of sending the "welcome letter". Have you checked your spam folder? You don't need the letter if you have your case number (CN). The CN will help move your process along. Use the links below to learn how and what you can do at this phase. With the embassies still in lockdown many things are proceeding differently than the "normal". 

 

Join us in the MAY 2020 K-1 NOA2 to NVC to EMBASSY thread and download the PDF file on the first post of the first page for tips, tricks and hacks to follow your case to the embassy. I'll post both links below:

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.

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

No we have not received a case number upon calling to NVC they inform they did not get our file from UCSIS. When we enquire from UCSIS they say wait till 90 days. Has someone seen this same situation? Its been 84 days now 😞

Since NVC has stopped shipping case files, nobody is getting a "welcome" letter.  The notification letter is sent upon shipment 


YMMV

Your still too early and with everything at a slow standstill I'd expect additional delays. 

 

BTW can you complete your profile. I rendered instructions in my earlier post as to how to do it. Timeline helps too. Your welcome for the help. Good luck and stay engaged.

Hi Payxibka 

 

Are they sending case numbers or also holding them? We have no case number from NVC after around 3 months

They are issuing case numbers, but cases are not going to the embassies. Many have gone through what you are going through. Have you called USCIS and talked to a tier two representative?

NOA2'S are valid for one year from approval. The embassy can extend in four month increments, but not NVC.
