The US petitioner receives the NOA2 notice of Action Approval notice from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).  The US petitioner is given a USCIS case number that they can use to track the status of the i-129f package as it processed and eventually makes it’s way to National Visa Center.

Once the USCIS sends the package to the NVC, your case is given a NEW US State Department Case Number.  We think this is because USCIS is with Department of Homeland Security and NVC is under the US State Department.  These are two huge departments within the US government that handle many different types of cases in their own way.

NVC is very fast.  Unless something is wrong, all they do is forward your package the US embassy that can do interviews that is nearest to the beneficiary.  NVC will send a letter to the US petitioner containing the receipt number and case number. The letter serves as a notification that NVC has received the approved I129f application.


The beneficiary will use the case number to pay for visa fee and in scheduling an interview appointment for US embassy.

The U.S embassy or consulate will contact your fiance(e) when they are ready to process his or her petition.k-1-visa-status
