You must contact the new consulate, then request a transfer. They might want proof of legal residence.

I got my NOA2 on May 18. No NVC case number yet obviously. I am aware we have to email the embassy we intend to transfer to, however are we able to do that with no case number? Just the uscis receipt number? NVC shut down their phone line and they probably won t email our case number until it s already sent to our old embassy and that s too late. I m stressed :(

Hi guys, so I think this is a common issue when a case transferred to the embassy and waits for months. I am trying to ask for experience like that on how to make the embassy work on my file. I tried to send emails with health reasons asking to be able to have interview but it doesn't seem to be working. Any ideas. My case is k1 been at US embassy for over 2 months now. They haven't sent any emails and there is no slots available to book an appointment. Thank you.

Is it really worth it to file file I-129F after filing I-130 ?

What is the possibility that will make the process faster ?

It says on the USCIS website that "

When both petitions have been approved by USCIS and sent to the NVC or when USCIS approves the I-130 before the I-129F, the availability of, as well as the need for, a nonimmigrant K-3 visa ends. If the NVC receives both an approved I-130 petition and an approved I-129F petition:

  • The nonimmigrant K-3 visa case will be administratively closed.
  • The application process explained below will not be available to the foreign-citizen spouse and cannot be used.
  • The NVC will contact the U.S. citizen sponsor and foreign-citizen spouse, with instructions for processing the IR-1 (or CR-1) immigrant visa. For more information on the immigrant visa process, review the Immigrant Visa for a Spouse webpage.

I am looking to know more about this from those followed this path.

I m not really sure which section to post this in, so I m going with here.

We are in Ethiopia.

I got an email from NVC saying our expedite case was approved (finally!). It also said it could take up to 2 weeks for the file to be transferred.

We were planning a trip abroad for Easter in 3 weeks, but now I m nervous about the timing of everything and wondering HOW QUICKLY they will schedule an interview from the time NVC sent the file. Do we need to cancel our trip or is it going to take something like 6 weeks or more?
