  1. I just wanted to update people on my case . My case was not the normal case as we married proxy without meeting . I also sent them western Union receipts despite people saying they will think it Fraud . My case was approved . The other myth was you had to tell them about charges that you did under 18 . I didn’t tell them any charges underage and it was approve . I’m saying this just to say this . Don’t listen to no one advice on your situation even if it different because ever case is different. I will let you know how it goes at the interview when we get there.
  2. How long does it take lately between getting an NOA2 and getting an interview date in Mexico City? I'm anticipating getting my NOA2 sometime later this month or in February (I filed in April 2021), and I really want to know how long it takes until you receive an interview at the Mexico City embassy. On Mexico k1 pages I'm in, I see some people only took 2 months to get theirs, but some people took 8 months to get theirs. Is their an average time it has been taking lately? Thanks!
  3. Hello Everyone! We're pleased to have finally heard back, but are being asked to provide more evidence for meeting in the 2 year period before we filed. It says evidence may include but is not limited to photos and "any evidence" that would prove it. In our I-129F, we submitted evidence of three times we were able to visit each other before Covid 19 . This included boarding passes, photocopies of passport stamps, copies of flight itineraries, hotel itineraries, money spent from both of us. He visited me in the states twice, and I visited him in Canada once. The only problem is we didn't really take pictures those visits. Because of Covid, we weren't able to meet up again until Aug 2021, where we had four more trips together up until now, and this time went out and took a bunch of pictures and had more of a paper trail doing activities in the area (Before Covid we were both in school and broke haha). There are three problems for us: 1.) The RFE wants evidence from Mar2019-Mar2021, which we don't really have more evidence of 2.) The evidence we do have for meeting in that two year period only came from one of us or the other. If he flew we submitted his boarding pass, if I paid for the hotel we submitted my receipt. I'm not sure how to show that we were together, other than our itineraries matched up for our visits (lodging matched flights, bank statements matched payment for travel). Evidence was submitted as multiple photocopies or attachments of emails per page , re-printed with those pages signed and dated. This may have been a mistake. 3.) Our most solid evidence comes from a period outside those two years prior to submitting, where we have photos and more receipts. I'm wondering if anyone else has been in a similar situation, especially with pandemic travel restrictions, and how they responded to it. Any and all advice would be appreciated!
  4. Does anyone have a clue as to why NOA2 estimated dates keep getting pushed back further and further? We received our NOA1 back in July and the original estimate was early March. Now it's mid May. The average time between NOA1 and NOA2 last year (at least for Ukraine) was about 7-8 months and now those who received their NOA1 back in Feb-March 2021 are still waiting for NOA2s. What is the bottleneck? This doesn't appear to just be a Ukraine thing but something going on for couples from all different countries. I see like 1-2 NOA2s received each day on the immigration timeline tracker, which seems awfully low given the amount of people who are on this site. Any news or updates that I may have missed involving staff shortages, delays caused by covid, etc. on this front are greatly appreciated.
  5. i want to join group for some updates from other member
  6. Hi everyone, I'm wondering how long receiving the NVC welcome letter takes in the Philippines right now? How long did it take for everyone here? My noa 2 was approved 3 weeks ago, I still haven't received my welcome letter and am unsure how long it'll take. And from there, does anyone know how long it'll take until interview? I'm getting excited and hope it's gonna be just a few more months from here. And which papers should I be preparing right now while waiting for the welcome letter? Thanks in advance.
  7. Hi People! I’ve been waiting on my NOA2 for 5 months. I would like to know if someone who also received NOA1 in April already get their NOA2. We still in a global pandemic and waiting never been so hard like is right now! If you are in same process and waiting as me, comment here, let’s support each other!!
  8. Hi everyone, My fiance and I applied for our K-1visa on August 27th 2020. We still have not received our NOA2. We also have not received any RFE. I have planned the move to the United States from Canada for the end of July. We thought that we had given ourselves a good buffer but with Coronavirus everything is delayed. In April we requested a follow-up on our case and 2 weeks later sent us an email basically saying "I know this is frustrating but we're working on it.". We just submitted another request and are supposed to get a response June 30th, but I'm worried were just going to get the same thing. We are anxious to start living together but I can't make any plans until we know this has been approved at the minimum. I have a few questions: Should we just switch to a K-3 Visa, or will that delay things even further? If this response has no information again, how to we contact the USCIS more directly (phone)? Has anyone ever been denied after such a long wait time? Has anyone been requested an RFE after such a long wait time? Thank you, A
  9. Hey guys. I copied Greenbaums intro to create a group for NOA2 for March 2021. Here you go: This thread was created for those who are waiting for their NOA2 K-1 case assignment from NVC and then tracking your case on wards to your Embassy. Contained in the PDF below are many tips, tricks and hacks to help you along the way. These are items that everyone asks for, so I thought I just post a PDF of them here for you to refer to when it's necessary. If you are new to this thread please read as these are most asked questions multiple times. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1nfin98c33IEpB0T0FlURERriblYmlm5O/view?usp=sharing
  10. So December 10th we received our NOA2. I have emailed NVC a few times and received our case # and invoice #. My fiancé has filled out the ds-160. Attempting to login to the ceas website it shows the same thing over & over that we need to fill out the ds-160. Is the only thing we can do is to wait for our “welcome letter” in order to have a account to submit forms and pay the fees?
  11. Hello everyone I apologise if this question has been asked hundreds of times before, I have tried scrolling through forums to get the answers or suggestions I am after. My husband applied online for our i130 and we received our NOA1 a few days after submitting, we received this in May 2020. It is now February 2021 and we have not heard back from USCIS at all, is it normal to wait this long for an NOA2 or should we try and get into contact with someone in USCIS? I am getting worried about our application potentially expiring. Thank you!
  12. We received our approval for i130 on Thursday at around 2pm. It showed as such online and on our account. However unlike NOA1, when we received an email notice immediately after we submitted, we haven’t received NOA2 notice by email yet. We need this email notice to apply for Singapore COC (Police Clearance). That takes about 70 to 90 days to obtain when outside the country, and so I want to get on it ASAP. How Long does it typically take to get the NOA2 notice by email after approval. Is there anyway to hurry it?
