Fingers crossed for you too!

Hey, which method did you use to track your NVC progress? Seems like that took a while to arrive.
5kf1 on 2019-06-24 said:
I called NVC and they provided the case number and dates. I think it usually takes 2-4 weeks so I thought 3 weeks to arrive was pretty good!
ScooterJones on 2019-07-03 said:
Thanks for the reply, by the way. I tried calling them and just get an automated message that all agents are busy in English and Spanish and it just disconnects the call after 4 minutes every time. Maybe they are not working this week... lol

Hi there, our application was sent at the same time as yours. Consulate received it already? Ours still says in transit. Did you call? Or receive an email?

Hello! I tracked the shipment via DHL. Shipper's reference EXP 09 JUL 2019A and destination Canada. They were delivered yesterday around 3:30pm ET!

Congrats on your approval!!! I’m curious how long it took for you to receive your visa.
ScooterJones on 2019-09-11 said:
I'd like to know how long it takes to receive your visa as well please! And did you order the premium shipping?
5kf1 on 2019-09-11 said:
Thanks! No, I selected the courier location in my hometown when I paid online. They said I’ll receive it within two weeks!

awesome congrats! did you pick it up at a courier or did you have it sent directly to you? how did you track it?
5kf1 on 2019-09-17 said:
Picked it up at the post office I selected online when I booked my consulate appointment time. I was emailed a tracking number after the visa was issued!

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.
