So we had our I-130 Expedited for Humanitarian Reasons and requested the same for the NVC.
Today we received an email from NVC says that the US Embassy (Bangkok) accepted our case for expedited processing and they will send this file immediately to the US Embassy.
The NVC received our approved I-130 on 10/2/19 Wednesday
I requested NVC to expedite 10/3/19 Thursday
NVC requested docs to submit for expedited processing 10/4/19 Friday
NVC emailed saying they are reviewed docs submitted for expedited processing 10/7/19 Monday
NVC emailed saying the US Embassy Approved to expedite and NVC is immediately sending our file to the US Embassy 10/9/19
This happened so quickly that we never received a case number from NVC nor have we submitted ANY documents to NVC other than our expedite request, I-797, and USCIS sending them our approved I-130.
Will we still receive an NVC case number at some point?
Does not having this NVC case number slow things down?
Is dealing with the US Embassy for collecting and submitting the remaining documents much faster than dealing with NVC typically?
What should we expect for our next steps (specific to our situation). I've done my homework and understand the usually process but not with this sort of quick expedite approval.
Thanks in advance for any help you can be!
