Hi everyone!

 

Our 129f got approved last week, yay! But I'm now a little clueless on how to proceed. We are starting to fill out our I-134, and are waiting for our NVC number. But I was wondering, who receives that and how? Mail, email? Because my fiancé never got the email about our 129f being approved either, when he did get an email about NOA1. Weird. We got approved last wednesday, maybe it's still coming in the mail?

 

I'm trying to prepare everything for the interview as fast as possible, sadly the information on the German embassy is a little outdated. Can I bring something that has those metal rings in the paper? I struggle to find the word haha. I basically made a scrapbook with proof of our relationship, I need to know if I need to cut those papers out hahah.

 

Any help and tips are appreciated because suddenly I feel very clueless.

Submitted i-129F: 12-4-23
Received/NOA1: 01-31-24
Approved/NOA2: 06-05-24

Hoping to move: End of 2024 🧡

If you haven't received the NOA2 in the mail from USCIS, you (the USC) should still receive that in i think it's like 7-10 business days. If you don't get the NOA2 at all from USCIS after a month, you would need to contact them. Cause you do need that NOA2, but USCIS is good about sending those out as they are needed for other parts of the immigration process.

any information now in terms of communication from NVC would go to the foreign fiance.

But receiving a letter from NVC with the case number is notoriously slow. It can take some time for your case to get to the NVC/processed by them. (my fiance didn't get a letter from the NVC with the case number until over a month after it had already been at the embassy in Germany, we contacted them a month after we received our approval)

USCIS recommends waiting 4weeks/30 from approval to contact the NVC to get your case number. So that would be my suggestion. Unfortunately you are now at a stage of more waiting lol

If it is evidence of the relationship that should be ok... since I don't believe they keep that. But I would recommend taking out the metal rings. just to be on the safe side, in case they decide they want to make copies of it or something. But from what I've read the German embassy in Frankfurt don't typically ask for evidence of the relationship, just the I-134.

 

theres another user, @Rosaly who is also from the Netherlands and is going through the Frankfurt embassy. they might be able to provide better insight, as they have scheduled their interview and received their packet 3 and such.

Thanks, the timeframes help! And it definitely helps to know who gets what hahah.

I messaged Rosaly recently because I want to prepare everything, so hopefully they can provide more insight!

 

I don't mind the waiting, just trying to figure out the steps
