Hey RBandAR any progress from your side.
RBandAR posted on 2/8/2014 3:09:50 AM
We are still waiting. No case number yet. NVC said they are getting a higher than usual volume of cases. It has been over a month since NVC received my petition. How about you?
amahf posted on 2/8/2014 11:45:58 AM
Same like you waiting for any response from NVC
amahf posted on 2/8/2014 11:46:58 AM
March Visa Bulletin was so frustrating for me, They are mentioning that there is no expected movements for the coming months.
amahf posted on 2/21/2014 8:40:16 PM
Hey RBandAR how are you doing? did you receive anything from NVC?
RBandAR posted on 2/22/2014 12:42:23 AM
I got an email with my case number and invoice for AOS yesterday. How about u?
amahf posted on 2/22/2014 8:55:38 AM
Great man. For me they asked to call by the end of the next week, just waiting but you know it's killing.
amahf posted on 3/3/2014 2:01:57 PM
Hey RB, how are you doing, did you receive the AOS and (DS-3032 or DS-261)
RBandAR posted on 3/3/2014 2:06:53 PM
Mailed my AOS on march 01.
RBandAR posted on 3/3/2014 2:10:21 PM
I know the wait is so frustrating. I heard there was a senate bill that will eliminate the limit for F2A. If that goes through, we don't have to wait for our priority dates to be current. Good luck!
RBandAR posted on 3/3/2014 2:12:49 PM
As soon as they emailed me the case number and aos invoice, I paid the fee online. When it says "paid" on their website, you can mail your AOS.
amahf posted on 3/3/2014 2:53:54 PM
Thank you RB appreciate it, And really I hope that bill to be approved but is this one is different than the immigration reform bill.
RBandAR posted on 3/3/2014 3:06:55 PM
It's different. The Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill has provisions that republicans do not agree. Now they are proposing small bills that only include provisions that both parties can agree on. Amazon actually wrote a blog for this on february.
amahf posted on 3/3/2014 3:31:29 PM
Thanks RB, yes I found this blog, hope that they can agree on.
RBandAR posted on 3/3/2014 10:46:39 PM
You're welcome man. Hang in there. Good luck!
AnikkaDionne posted on 4/12/2014 11:54:29 PM
hello. Any update with your case?
RBandAR posted on 4/13/2014 12:13:13 AM
Already submitted all documents. Just waiting for "case complete" status. Unfortunately PD is still stuck.
Alram posted on 4/14/2014 1:18:40 AM
Hi ARandAR. your pd is Sept 9, 2014 which is not current? right? so does it mean that when you submit all documents..your pd will be current anytime?. I received and email from nvc " the nvc may begin processing this petition prior to a visa number becoming available per the current ediiton of the visa bulletin ". but when i tried to log in to the ceac it said that "Please be advised that the case that you have attempted to access is not eligible for further processing by the National Visa Center at this time. Please contact the National Visa Center if you believe that you have received this message in error.
Alram posted on 4/14/2014 1:19:01 AM
I meant sept 9, 2013 :P
AnikkaDionne posted on 4/14/2014 2:15:33 AM
Alram, pls update me if you can already log ib to ceac.
RBandAR god bless your case. Everyone is waiting for the June Visa Bulletin. Hoping it will move after being stuck to Sept08
amahf posted on 4/14/2014 7:36:04 AM
I advice you Anikka not to expect anything from those jerks in NVC they are not going to move the bulletin any more, they are dealing with legal immigrants like illegal immigrants, they don't have any common sense about family union.
RBandAR posted on 4/14/2014 2:11:00 PM
Received an email from NVC that our "case is complete" and the embassy in Manila will schedule for interview as soon as our priority date becomes "current". We almost made it. :( really frustrating... Based on amazon's prediction, we might see retrogression in june this year. Hopefully he's wrong. Hang in there guys. We'll get there eventually. Alram what is your PD? I don't know why they let me proceed with the process. I'm thinking it's because our PD is so close to being current. Best of luck to all of us...
Alram posted on 4/15/2014 1:21:43 AM
My PD is January 3, 2014. If visa bulletin will not move for this coming months and will retrogress. my only hope is to receive the citizenship of my hubby so we could upgrade the petitio from f2A to IR but im still wishing to move forward the visa bulletin..
Fista posted on 4/21/2014 8:16:24 PM
My pd is 09/23/2013, my i130 was approved on January 2014, I received my case number on march first week. No any respond from Nvc , omg how long I have to wait any one know about this?
RBandAR posted on 4/21/2014 8:44:46 PM
Bina, did you receive an email with instructions on how to proceed? I don't know if u already started the process in NVC. If you have a case number and invoice number you can try to pay for the fees in CEAC website if u haven't already done so. If your case is eligible to proceed, you should receive an email telling you to do it.
Alram posted on 4/21/2014 8:53:15 PM
Mine was approved last feb then we received our case number lasst april 9. As of now. No next step from NVC. Wishing to move na VB next month.
RBandAR posted on 4/21/2014 8:58:01 PM
We really don't have any other option but to WAIT. Frustrating... Well we just need to be patient.
Alram posted on 4/22/2014 12:07:26 AM
RBandAR do you think there will be a movement this year?
Fista posted on 4/22/2014 4:51:19 AM
RBandAR ! Thanks a lot , I am not receiving anything from Nvc , when I call them they said I have to wait till my pd gonna current. So, it is really hard time.
Tekiboom posted on 6/14/2018 1:12:47 AM
