I got this email notification because I sent an additional form requesting early notification. Normally, the first notice I would have gotten from the government is the I-797 notice of receipt which I should receive in about a week. The advantage to having gotten our notice early is that we now have our official receipt number. With this number we can log on and see where our 129-f petition is.
For reasons both mysterious and arcane, the processing times vary widely from petitioner to petitioner. The earliest date that we might reasonably think Minxi could get permission to enter the country is Mid-November.
Hang on baby, we're getting there!
