    can you please share your experiences as to how many days did it take NVC to receive the approved I140 from USCIS?? I have seen some data on cptracker but was wondering if you all can shed some more light?

    How good is the NVC automated system? I checked for my Application using I 140 EAC # but it seems like they have not yet received my app. My I140 was approved on June 22.

    My lawyer says that I would not need to send the DS3032 (Choice of Agent) form because he included the G28 with the initial I140 application.. is this true?? any experience..

    The time you have given is way too long for the file to reach the NVC.

    Your attorney should be pro-active in this case and should contact the USCIS to enquire about the case. They do not entertain calls from the

    3-4 week to have your case entered in NVC. Alsod what your Lawyer told was correct about DS3032, because same thing happend with me.

    Does USCIS send you a letter indicating your case has been forwarded to NVC after I-140 approval, or it is indicated in the I-140 apporval notice, or we do not know until we receive a letter from NVC?

    Can any of you who has opted for CP and has received I-140 approval answer the question? Thank you.

    It is printed on the I-140 approval that the case is now sent to the NVC
    and to follow up with them. But this is not case specific.

    Normally the first confirmation you get is from the NVC when they confirm
    based on your enquiry. If you don't enquire at NVC the first indication to you is, when your attorney receives the fee bill.

    I140 approval March 5th and no progress

    My I140 approval date is at the beginning of march and my file has yet to make it to NVC. Have sent letter after letter to USCIS, talked to NVC and still nothing, almost 4 and a half months later. It's just horrible because I have no control over this and have no guarantees this thing will ever be resolved...

    I need advice about how to proceed, whether there is any way this idiotic process of sending the file over could be bypassed (try to talk to the consulate?) and whether anybody has ever been through this. It's just unbelievable that mailing some papers could take 5 months...

    Was your I140 approved by Vermont?

    Also, when you talked to NVC, what did they say? Did they atleast say that they have received it and are yet to enter it in their system? or is it that they have not received it at all? If this is the case, does your I140 approval notice say that the application has been forwarded to NVC??

    Mine (I140 approval) says that the Application has been forwarded to NVC...

    I140 approved on Feb20'04,NVC case still not created....


    Please help me with your expert advice.

    My I-140 was approved on FEB 20,2004 and an approval notice was mailed to our attorney and employer in the 1st week of March.

    I-140 notice says that the process at USCIS has been completed and will be sent to NVC which will in turn send my case to the appropriate consular post for processing. I had opted for Consular Processing at Chennai,India. According to my understanding, after I-140 approval, the case will be sent by USCIS to NVC and NVC creates a case # and issues Fee Bill.This process
    usually takes 3 to 6 weeks(source: cptracker.com)and on the I140 notice it says that please allow 90 days if the case has not reached NVC,whereas in my case it has been 4 months and my case has still not reached NVC. In April our attorney contacted USCIS and they had issued a duplicate notice of my I140 which was received by our attorney in 2nd week of May.

    The USCIS.Gov web site says the following :


    Current Status:

    A duplicate notice on this case was mailed on May 5, 2004. If 14 days have passed and you have not received this notice, you may wish to verify or update your address. To update your address, please call the National Customer Service Center at (800) 375-5283.
    2 days back when I called NVC they say that my I-140 has still not reached NVC and they told me to contact USCIS.I did so and the USCIS says that they have mailed my I140 to NVC.

    My attorney tells me to wait........

    This is really frustrating...........

    Please help as to what could be the possible reason for the delay and what should I do.

    when you share your experiences, please mention the NAME of the service center that processed your I140, for example Vermont, Nebraska etc. This might be helpful to see if there is a trend based on the service center.

    Vinni2004 and topew - please mention service center...

    I called NVC yesterday.. they say that my Approval was received by them on June 28,04. They said that my attorney will be sent notification within 6-8 weeks from the date of receipt (June 28, 04). They could not give any more details. When asked them the reason as to why the AVM does not acknowledge the receipt of my Approval.. she said because they received the case recently!

    I do not know how long it is going to take .. just unbelievable...

    I140 Approved: June 22, 04
    Service center: Vermont
