    (2) But we received another mail notice that baiscally says
    "The petitioner requested consular processing on the Form 1-129 petition. But because the petitioner did not send the duplicate copy of the petition while block "a" in Question 5 of Part 2 of the form was checked". So the action USCIS described is:

    "The petitioner failed to include a duplicate copy; therefore, no copy of the petition was forwarded to the Kentucky Consular Center for processing."

    and then they advised us to file I-824 that costs $405.

    <Question 1>
    We are puzzled by the second notice. Currently, the employee lives in oversea and will need to apply for a US Visa. In order for him to be able to obtain the US Visa oversea, should we file I-824 even though the I-797B approval notice says the notice has been sent to the consulate?

    <Question 2>
    Having to file I-824 costs $405, but it seems to us that I-824 is for adding "additional new" consulate. Since we did not include the duplicate copy in the original I-129 petition, I think it should considered as the case that we need to send additional document that were missing in procssing the original petition, without having to go through I-824. Am I wrong? Can I argue with them?
