  1. The validity of the NOA2 is for four months. They want you to complete your visa processing at the consulate during that window. The reason is that they have thousands of approved applicants and they need to keep things moving along or they will back up if everyone decides they want to process in a particular month then the other months there are relatively few interviews. So, to keep things moving along they put a date on the NOA2. If for some reason, illness, death in the family or some other valid reason, your consulate can extend the visa at their discretion. I think the COVID-19 virus will be an event covered and will be extended so I wouldn't worry.
  2. He's a K-1 and doesn't follow the same path as CR-1's do. Nothing gets sent to NVC for them.
  3. If you want P3 then ask me for it. I'm still here working for you and others.
  4. Can I share somethings with you that I learned long ago about this process? • "the man with the gold makes the rules" • it will take as long as it will take • no one with any certainty can tell you when some process will be completed • Your sense of urgency will never be equaled to what USCIS, NVC or your embassy demonstrates • Your journey is not going to mirror someone else's experience- yours and theirs are not the same • They only promised you a YES or NO answer. Never an exact time that their decision would be completed • Lowering your expectations will make you a much more relaxed individual Good luck on your journey
  5. According to some experts the COVID-19 virus is transmitted by air mainly but can be received from surfaces. The "shelf" life of a COVID-19, depending on the material that it is adhered to, will last only 1-5 days. https://www.webmd.com/lung/how-long-covid-19-lives-on-surfaces
  6. The letter that the send you is a conformation letter with instructions on how to proceed. Your embassy has turned off the scheduling and payment feature and will not open it till they begin to get back to "business as usual" mode. We are still amid a pandemic and staff is short or non-exitance in USICS, NVC and the embassies. Patience is still needed. Keep checking to see if your status changes but don't be concerned or surprised that it has changed.
  7. What website? I'm a bit confused with your question so if I can see the webpage you are speaking of, then I am sure I can answer your question.
  8. Nope. Wouldn't affect a second filing on behalf of another family member. Nothing to worry about.
  9. If you are using VJ timelines to make that determination I would add a bit of caution. The sampling you receive is depended on those who participate with a timeline. Many on VJ do not. That's why you'll see me ask someone to finish their profile and start their timeline. As you know the larger the sampling the better the data is to determine what it is that you want to achieve analytically. Just saying.
  10. Because every post on VJ can be responded to whether it is directed to the individual or not. You'll find it outlined in the TOS for VJ. If you don't like my answers or "cutting in" on your "fun" then block me. So now we have an understanding I will get back to authoring more "copy/paste oratory" to help those who are more appreciative of my seasoned answers. See ya.
  11. Well. I have little tricks that I use to answer most repeated questions. So, in a split second to 30 seconds I can answer many of their questions. Other questions that I don't have an answer readily available, I do my research to find the information through different "laws" or procedures. Some of my answers are long in nature and some two or three words. I have been accused of being short and using less then soothing language. I read a lot of different threads and gather answers to questions I anticipate someone will ask down the road. I am always trying to refresh my information if necessary. Many of the P3's I provide have come from VJ members such as yourself. This gives me a P3 to respond to others who will ask down the road if I have a copy, well after the VJ who provided the information is on to other things. That's my secret. Shhhhhh. 🤫 Don't tell anyone.

  13. Very normal. You're within the 5-7-month adjudication period that USCIS advertises, and there is a pandemic transpiring which has force USCIS, NVC and your embassy to be shorthanded. Patience. Can I have my shoes back.... you've walked a mile in them. Tired?
  14. Here's 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. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1krDA5e93LXA3JbzBl8Zo-pvBjpNlLJam/view?usp=sharing 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. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MDRnqzVsqYuInL1iSIyuxaMOj52yDAxb/view?usp=sharing 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 the way you presented yourself is fine.
