    The Consulate will keep your papers for 1 year.

    I think you should be ok. But still check with the US Consulate.

    Good Luck.

      Consulate will send Packet 4a to the applicant after one year. case will be closed after waiting one

      The post must send Packet 4(a) to applicants who have not responded to
      Packet 3 within one year. In the case of an applicant whose priority
      date has not been reached on the one year anniversary, the post
      should send Packet 4(a) when the applicantís priority date is reached.

      Response to Packet 4(a)
      a) Applicant Returns Packet3
      If the applicantís response to Packet 4(a) is to return Form OF-169
      and Form OF-230 I, the post shall process the applicant in the same
      manner as any other applicant who responds to Packet 3, i.e.,
      background checks will be conducted, a number will be requested, a
      medical exam will be scheduled, and the applicant will be sent
      Packet 4.

      b)Applicant Fails to Respond
      If the applicant does not comply with the Packet 4(a) instructions
      within one year, the consular officer shall initiate proceedings to
      terminate the alienís immigrant visa registration.
