  1. Hey everyone! I started this thread to help everyone from Argentina who have their NVC case number or are about to have it. Sorry if there are some writing mistakes, english is my second lenguage. FIRST if you have your case number, you can track it through the CEAC website https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx (chose the Inmigrant Visa option and the put your BNS number). When it is being transfer to the embassy, it will show 'IN TRANSIT' and when it arrives it will show 'READY'. In other cases, NVC emails you and let you know the case is in the way to the embassy. Remember NVC shipments are every other Tuesday. SECOND If you are waiting for your case number or waiting the READY status, you can start gathering the documents for Packet 3. You can see what is required in this link https://ar.usembassy.gov/wp-content/uploads/sites/26/K1-K3-Instructions-packet.pdf . You will have to send this packet to the embassy before the interview. Below I'll point out what you can start doing. (everything is copies, not originals) Visa Photos. 5x5 with white background Birth Certificate AKA Acta de Nacimiento. It is a faithful copy of the books where the birth is registered. It should have the City's Registro Civil Stamp where the person was born, and Copia Fiel Stamp and one more that says it follow the country law (this one changes according the province). If you don't have it, you can order it online (http://portaldetramites.cba.gov.ar/v/552 this is for Cordoba for example) or go to the Registro Civil of the town you or your fiance were born and request it. Divorce Decree, I don't hae more information about it because neither me or my fiance were married before. If you have information on how to it should be, comment down bellow! Evidence of Support. You need to proof your fiance can financially support you. Ffor more information https://myimmigrationattorney.com/k1-visa/evidence-of-financial-support/ . You will need from your fiance or your co-sponsor the following docuements A. W2 for the last 3 years till present, it can be signed digitally. B. 1040 Forms or IRS transcripts for the last 3 years till present C. Employment paystubs, 6 months at least D. Job letter, verification of employment. E. Bank statements, at least 12 months F. Form I-134. make sure is signed on page 4 or 5. (if you have blanck spaces complete them with N/A) Police Certificate You must obtain the nationally produced “Certificado de Antecedentes Penales” issued by the “Registro Nacional de Reincidencia”, it must say “con excepción al artículo 51 del Código Penal”. You can google RNR nearer you, it doesn't have to be made in Bs As like the instructions sayed. The certificate expires, you have 90 days of validation. It doesn't have to be expired when you add it to the P3 or when you get to US, please be aware of this so you don't have to do it twice. If you are from another province follow the next points Go to www.dnrec.jus.gov.ar and tried to do it online. If you can perfect, you are all done. But if you can´t is because they don't have your fingerprints and you need to do what is next. In the same website click TRAMITES PARTICULARES, Certificado de Antecedentes Penales ----- INICIA TU TRÁMITE ------ TRAMITE PRESENCIAL In the page that opens chose Argentina---Province----City----- and then chose the one nearer you. Then you continue clicking in SIGUIENTE ----- then chose the option to pay $180 pesos to have it in 24 hs A new page will open where you will complete all your personal information. When you are done, print that form with a copy of your DNI because you will need it for the appointent To pay the fee you can chose to pay through RAPIPAGO or PAGOMISCUENTAS (save the receipt to take it to the appointment) You have to make an appointment to get it, if you are from Cordoba use CIUDADANO DIGITAL and TURNERO. I don´t know how it is in another provinces so if you know comment in this thread how you did it. Evidence of Relationship, you should gather more photos, message record or videocall record. They should be different than the ones you sent on the I-129F packet. IF YOU HAVE ALL OF THIS WHILE YOU ARE STILL WAITING FOR THE 'READY', WAIT AND KEEP READING THIRD Once you see ´READY' you can email the embassy (BuenosAires-IV@state.gov) saying that you know the case is ready and you want to know next steps to take. They can answer the next day or take a couple days. When they do, they can tell you to wait a little bit because they are getting ready for your case or they can email you the INSTRUCTIONS PACKET. The instructions packet is what is mentioned SECOND paragraph with a couple more things like filling DS-160 and information about the medical exam. When you receive the Instructions attached to the email, it means you can schedule your interview and medical exam. FOURTH You will fill the DS-160 through this website https://ceac.state.gov/GenNIV/Default.aspx . You will need some necessary information Your adress in the US National identification number: is your DNI number not your passport Application receipt number/ petition number: Is the one with EAC, WAC, LIN, SRC, NBC, MSC or IOE at the beggining, not the one with BNS If you worked in the US, you will need your SSN number Adresses in Argentina are written the argentinian way (number at last) and the US with number at the beggining This were the more importants for me, comment down below if you have more recommendations Once you are done, you will receive through email your confirmation number, print two copies of it and save the number somewhere because you will need it FIFTH schedule your interview through this website https://ais.usvisa-info.com/ ----- inmigrant visa applicant ------ register ------- I have received a letter from the consular section with instructions to register or schedule a K visa appointment --------- sign up with your email Here you will need your BNS XXXX XXX XXX number, your DS-160 confirmation number and in which DHL you want the documents to be send. Next the website will give ou the payment option and you will chose the one you want (by credit/debit card the payment is instantly and by rapipago takes a at least two days to process the payment) After this you will see all the dates available. If there isn't any date available, email the embassy saying this and asking for next steps and they will let you know when the open more spots. Right now, May 1st the next dates availables are for mid June. So have that in your mind if you are thinking on booking flights or wedding plans. SIXTH Book your medical exam, the doctors information are in the Instructions Packet. If you are from another province, you can ask to be done nearer the interview date so you only have to travel once. The doctor will tell you what vaccines are obligatory (variccela, influenza, triple viral and triple bacteriana), she also will need your case number (BNS one) and she will inform you how much everything will be. Note: you can schedule your SEVENTH Send packet 3 to the embassy, you can drop it yourself to Ave Colombia 4300 Bs As or you can send it through DHL or Correo Argentino if you are from another province. Check everything they ask in the instructions packet is there (if you forget something, you can present it the day of the interview so don't worry. You may not have the medical exam results but you can write a lettere saying you have scheduled the interview nearer the interview date and that will work). Save all the originals for the interview (RNR, Birth certificate, Divorce decree). Send an email to the embassy asking if they can let you know when they receive the packet, so you don't have to worry if they have it or not EIGHTH medical exam, I'll write down below my experience so you now what to expect but it can change if you do it with the other doctor. I did it with Dr Grillo. I went to the Trinidad de Palermo hospital (Sinclair street).You go to the secretary desk at the first floor and announce yourself. They will check you in then make you go to another desk near by to pay for the blood test and x-ray $550 pesos. After that you wait until the doctor calls you. Once you are in the room with her, she will ask you for the passport photos, case number and your passport. She will give you the prescription for every test you have to take and you will pay her fee there $2000 pesos You do all tests in the same hospital but the one that is around the corner (Cerviño street). Level -1. you do the line in laboratory and the secretary will tell you to go to another desk to pay the fee for the Tuberculosis test that is USD 175. Once you are back with the receipt, the secretary will give you a container to collect your urine. Next, you go to a waiting room and without so much waiting a nurse will call you to take out the blood. After that you go to the x-ray desk (is all in the same floor and is easy to know where everything is because there are signs everywhere) and you will wait until they call your name. Come back to the another building (Sinclair street) level 1, and if you have some vaccine missing you have to go to ‘vacunatorio’ that is on the right. You will pay whatever cost is for the vaccine you are missing and you will wait they call your name. The nurses will give the shots and then you are done. I waited outside Dr Grillo office and after 20 minutes she called me. She completed some information in the computer and then she took my blood pressure, listen my heart, measured my height and weight and tested my visual. After that she told to come back at 4pm for the results. I went again at 4. The medical was approved. She gave me the closed envelope I have to take with me to the embassy. Total time spent: 2hours in the morning and then picking the results 15minutes Total cost: $10250 + vaccine cost NINETH embassy interview. You don't have to do the tourist visa line, go to a window and say you are there for K1 visa. They will give you a green folder where you put all the originals (birth certificate, divorce decree, medical exam closed envelope, passport photos, more evidence of relationship if you want to add more, confirmation page). Do not make a copy of everything you sent on P3 because is a waste of money, paper and time. Just worry about the originals and what you missed in P3. Once in, they will call you do deliver the green folder THAT IS NOT THE INTERVIEW. The next time they call you it will be for the interview. They will make swear everything you presented and what you will say is the truth. The questions can be: - how we met? - when and where we met? - what I was doing in US when we met? - when I came back from US the last time? - what he does for living? - what would I do for living? - where I will live? - how and when we got engaged? - when we will get marry? The consul can be empathetic and nice, or it can be really serious. The interview can be in english or spanish and you can request it to be in one lenguage or the other. The interview can be 5-20 minutes long and you can be at the embassy for an hour or more, it depends on how long they make you wait. TENTH you can check also the status of yout visa here https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx noninmigrante visa -- buenos aires argentina -- the confirmation number of the DS-160. In there you will see if it is under Administrative Process or when it is Issued. After it is Issued, the embassy will send you an email with the tracking number. You will pick up you packet in a DHL office when is delivered. I hope this post and thread helps, I did my best to gathered everything I went through. if you have doubts or question don't hesitate on posting, we are a big community and we have to help eachother to be as soon as possible with our 'media naranja' Cheers!
  2. Hello everyone! So my visa petition was received by NVC on June 13 and they provided my fiance and I with a case number on June 17. Reading VJ forums, I assume our petition will be Shipped next week (Tuesday 25th). If anyone has already received packet 3 that has all the instructions about Casablanca required documents for the interview, would you please share it with me or any information I should be aware of. Thank you!
  3. Hello everyone! My fiance and I currently doing a K-1. She is from Van, BC and I am from Idaho. We got an email from the NVC saying our case was being forwarded to the Embassy in Montreal. She has been here visiting for a minute. We called after getting that email and asked what we should do next. We told them what our email said. We were then told by the embassy person to file a DS-160 which we did while on the phone and then she also told us to schedule an interview basically right after filling it out. This was September 18thish? We called a few days later to make a medical exam in Surrey, BC. So last night(a month later) we were at Fedex printing a bunch of stuff out to get ready for the interview which is on November 20th. Going through some pictures her mom had sent of the mail, we noticed we missed the 2 page packet 3. So here is the issue: We already have an interview which is what the embassy told us to do. But packet 3 or whatever the two page thing they sent us says not to set it up until you get packet 4 after submitting packet 3? We submitted packet 3 right away sending her passport photo copy, the checklist, and the DS-160 confirmation last night. I've been up all night freaking out because I feel like this seems obviously like a big mistake on my part. I called the embassy this morning explaining what happened, but they just said the interview is good to go but also they didn't really know anything other than that. SORRY FOR THE NOVEL CEAC says NO Status under the AA case number check but Immigrant status when I put the MTL number in shows ready so Idk. If anyone could help or give some insight that would be greatly appreciated. My anxiety is through the roof over this.
  4. Hi everyone, is there anyone from Hong Kong applying for K1 visa? We filed in the petition on 6/1/2019, and received NOA1 on 10/1/2019 and NOA2 on 11/4/2019. I have seen so many posts about people not receiving packet 3, I'm wondering how long would it normally take for packet 3 to arrive after getting NOA2? And during this time, is there any preparations I can do, e.g. apply for police clearance? Also I saw on VJ Us Consulate HK post: "Requirements for the I-134 Affidavit of Support: "A notarized I-134 enclosed with your employment letter, bank statements and latest tax return are required. When your fiancee has obtained all the documents on the checklist applicable to her case, please advise her to complete and return her completed visa forms to this office immediately so that proper action can be taken in her visa application : a) DS-230I, b) 2 copies of DS-156, c) DS-156K and d) FPU Preliminary Interview Form." Here is a link that should be included under the DCF heading" Are the forms 3 forms (a) DS-230I, b) 2 copies of DS-156, c) DS-156K and d) FPU Preliminary Interview Form) needed for the interview? can we download and fill in those forms before receiving packet 3? Any other advises for preparations for packet 3 & 4 and the interview with the ambassador? Thank you very much! Nora
  5. Hi! I just want to know how long will it take to get the packet 3? Our status on ceac says ‘ready’ since aug 27. We filled at singapore us embassy. Thank you!
  6. My nvc case status said ready for like two weeks now and no letter or packet 3 have been sent to both petitioner and beneficiary. I am in Lagos,Nigeria. What can I do?
  7. In a K1 Visa, after getting the case number, what is maximum allowable time to submit the Packet 3 information? We are recognizing it is taking ourselves some effort and time to collect the birth certificates, i-134 documents & etc.
  8. This week our CEAC status updated to “ready”. I sent our packet 3 yesterday and received an email today telling me that they are still processing my case and not to send packet 3 documents until receiving instructions from them. Has anyone else had this reply?
  9. Please help. Our Case status has changed to Ready at the consulate in Moscow, Russia, but we have not received any Packet 3 yet. Can you please tell how long did it take for you? and what can be done about it? Is it possible to appoint the interview without waiting for it?
  10. Hi all, can anyone here share with me the packet 3 for K1 visa you get from the US consulate HK? thank you very much!
  11. Dear all, I'm wondering during the transfer of the case from USCIS to NVC, is there any way to check the status of the case? Do we go to CEAC to check? If so, my case status is "issued" instead of "ready". What does that mean? Does that just mean it was sent away to the local US consulate? If the "issued" date was 4/11/2019, how much longe should I wait before contacting the consulate? Thanks!
