  1. K1 here. We got our NOA2 at the end of last year and because of my fiancé’s work and Corona, never had time to schedule the interview. We have been extending the NOA2 twice already this year and were “up for” another extension next week. However, this time the answer from the embassy was different. Maybe it helps someone else who’s also K1 and waiting for the embassy to reopen 😊 This is the reply I got this time: “NOTE: Per new guidelines, the I-129F petition remains valid and can be re-validated at the time of applicant´s interview. We are unable to provide a specific date for when the U.S. Embassy in Stockholm will resume K-1 visa services, or when the U.S. Embassy in Stockholm will return to processing at pre-COVID workload levels, but please be assured that we will resume K-1 visa services as soon as possible while complying with operational and travel regulations and restrictions. We strongly encourage applicants to monitor our website regularly for the latest information about the Embassy’s operating status and any further updates: https://se.usembassy.gov/visas/immigrant-visas/ “ Meaning, there is no longer any need to send in new evidence and ask for an extension, have you already gotten your NOA2.
  2. Yes, actually they did reply to me after I had posted here. Seems like the "no questions at this time" doesn't apply to K1 😊
  3. Does anyone know what happens with NOA2s that are about to expire? We haven't been able to book an appointment and the NOA2 expires June 24th. I have emailed the embassy, but got an automated response saying they are not answering any questions at this time... Will the validity be extended automatically then?
  4. I was wondering if anyone here has contacted the embassy through email and what email address you used? I finally got my case number about a week ago (the letter had had a “little” detour to Taipei according to a stamp on the envelope 😅) and it’s less than a month until my NOA2 expires. I found this email address on the embassy webpage: support-Sweden@ustraveldocs.com and emailed them to ask for an extension. That was more than a week ago and still no answer. Is there another address? Do I need to be patient (does it usually take some time for them to answer)? Or should I just call them instead?
  5. Congrats to all of you that have gotten your visa! 😄 I finally got the letter from NVC with the case number (it was sent to me, the beneficiary, which surprised me a bit). Interestingly enough, it was dated November 26th 2019 and didn’t arrive until today, almost 2 months later. Then I saw that it had a stamp on the envelope: “Missent to Taipei.” Lol!! No wonder it took so long to make it to Sweden!
  6. Probably not! I never even tried lol! I just assumed it was needed since people wait til they have their case number to fill it out?
  7. I did a few weeks ago. However, on their website it says the are working on emails from end of October 😕 I will try and call them using that app, hopefully it will work 👍
  8. But that’s uscis, I thought nvc was a different agency? We did get the hard copy for NOA2, the one missing is the letter from nvc with the new case number.
  9. Yeah, we didn’t do that. In hindsight, we should have! We figured since we weren’t in a rush, we would get our hard copy eventually anyways 😬
  10. Yes, he is and we did call the military hotline this summer. Maybe I’ll have to try that one instead, but someone also suggested an app where you can call landlines for free 👍 I did try the DHL hack and there has been one package sent every two weeks since we got our NOA2 lol! So how do I know if any of them is mine? 🤔
  11. No... I looked through the I-129F and I can't see that they asked for the email address anywhere...?
  12. The problem is, in order for them to get my email address, I will have to fill out DS-160. Without the case number, I can't fill out that form lol! Catch 22! Oh well, I will sit tight for another month and see what happens. My noa2 expires in February and we will need to extend it anyway.
  13. Hey guys, I was wondering about the letter from NVC, did you all get a hard copy with your case number? We got NOA2 in October and haven't heard from NVC yet. Since John is in Afghanistan and I don't want to think about how astronomical the phone bill would be if I called from Sweden and had to stay on the line for hours, we have not called and asked for the case number. I did email them a few weeks ago, but according to the website they are working on emails from October. It seems like many of you with a similar timeline are now able to book your interviews so I'm thinking our case may very well be at the embassy already. Has anyone ever tried calling the embassy to ask instead?
  14. I have noticed that Americans in general want to use lawyers for everything lol! I have applied for three different visas to the U.S. and the paper work is all pretty straight forward, if you just read the instructions. Never had any issues so far (knock on wood!). Hopefully something will happen soon for you guys!
  15. Oh no, this has me worried - a whole year?? I was expecting up to 8 months and I didn't even realize you could get an RFE for AOS. I tried to look at your timeline, but noticed you haven't filled it out, would you mind sharing important dates like when you entered the U.S., got married, sent in the paperwork for AOS aso? Also, may I ask what the RFE was for..? Congrats on the house!! It must feel good to finally get a place of your own
