This is so exciting news! I had read about the 1st NOA and the 2nd NOA, but I didn’t realise the importance of both of them.
Gio has been wanting to check the process every day since he sent the K1 Visa Package, but I suggested him to check it every 2 to 3 weeks to have more chances to actually see an update.
Last night he suggested me to check the process, so we did (even though we planned on checking it next week). And guess what we saw! We received an update! Due the similar sentences they write (more like a Copy Paste thing), I thought we were still on the same step: “Case received”, but I read it again and again until Gio finally convinced me that it was different. Now the status was saying “My Case was Approved”!
We were so happy to see an update. It took 26 days after the 1st NOA to get the 2nd one, so I think things are going faster than expected thank God!
Everything was so exciting, but we had a doubt. What did Approved mean?… After doing a research online, it seems like an important step because now the files are going to the National Visa Center and then to my country for the interview.
I am thrilled.
We got the 2nd NOA, what’s next now?
In 10 days Gio will call to the National Visa Center to make sure they received our case. After that, we just have to wait from 2 to 5 weeks to be contacted by the US Embassy in my country, and schedule the interview!
While I wait for that to happen, I will be gathering the police information and the paperwork they ask for the interview.
As a side note…I still don’t know if it’s possible to get a RFE (Request For Evidence) even after the 2nd NOA. I hope it’s not.
