US Entry :
Comments : We just experienced a 2 month delay due to the technical problem with the CEAC Site. It showed us as all fees paid and all documents accepted. When no DQ notice came we finally phoned only to find one more document was required. There had been a RFE message which didn't show and a the previous NVC rep on the phone had either not read it to us or read it incorrectly. It pays to phone and phone and phone. A hard lesson learned.

Hello, my husband and I were married 7/17/2019 and NOA1 was September 23, 2019. Congratulations on being approved! I thought I would ask if you had any updates between NOA1 and NOA2? I have heard nothing since the first notice and just worry! Thank you!
Burmel on 2020-05-08 said:
No. There was nothing at all. We just feel so lucky to have been approved as quickly as we were. We were expecting longer.

Thanks for the response! Yes, I am so happy for you! The quote on this website for us is May 5-June 20, I hope it will be true for us! I was afraid that between the two notices people were getting some sign that their case was being worked on so I feel better if you didnt hear anything until now!

Did you submit online?
Burmel on 2020-05-09 said:
No. We sent the whole package by courier to Phoenix on about Dec. 3, 2019 and got email notice of our NOA 1 on Dec. 6. A letter followed with that Dec. 6 date as out NOA1.

We actually filed from Texas and sent it by courier to the Phoenix Lockbox.. We heard nothing after the NOA1 until we got the email from the NVC.

*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.

** Not all cases are transfered
