    No Title

    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 applicant’s priority date is reached.

    Response to Packet 4(a)
    a) Applicant Returns Packet3
    If the applicant’s 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 alien’s immigrant visa registration.
