On my NOA2, approval notice, they say I need to follow instructions... So any idea what it can be??

Wait for the Welcome Letter from the NVC or call the NVC for your case number and invoice, so you can make payments and upload the civil and financial documents to the ceac platform!

Hello, just checking is your interview was at the consulate in DR. Trying to figure out if they are still doing interviews although their website say they are closed due to Covid.
Pedro & Rosa on 2020-11-07 said:
Yes, at the US embassy in the DR! NVC is sending appointment emails but very few, embassy is resuming K1's too!
blank avatar Aleroux7679 on 2020-11-07 said:
Thank you! Praying we would be scheduled soon. Ours still shows at NVC but hopefully it changes in the next few days. Would you please let me know what are the steps to take in DR and the fees to pay before the interview? Thanks again.

*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.
