Hi everybody.

My name is Samra and I filed for the K1 visa back in June 2014. June 16th to be exact was when I sent my paper work in and I recevied my receipt on June 22. My fiance is in Bosnia which is in eastern europe. My main concern is why is it taking so long? They don't update their site often so I don't even know what case is being processed at this time. Can any of you give me a time frame of when I should expect a decision? Thanks for all the help in advance.

Greetings to you all for your nice response. I'm new in this thread, and i need your kind response to my questions. 
I'm currently undergoing nvc processing, I submitted ds261, paid oas bill, submitted aos and iv package. Got nvc recieved email message for both package. 
A week later, i requested for expedited processing and I received a response that my request was forwarded for expeditious review and i will be updated on the decision. Meanwhile, I have not been invoiced to pay the iv fee, so i can fill & submit the ds260.
I'm wondering if the expedited request gets approved, will that result in sending my oas and iv package back to me since I will not be around to receive it because of my deployment.
Also how long does it take to get nvc expedite approval notice because it's over a week now since i recieved the "request been under expeditious review" massage from nvc. Thank you

arrowUSCIS Immigrant Fee - I130 Question

Hello guys, am a bit confused I didnt read anything about this immigrant fee, am assuming it has already been paid. But when checking NVC process the immigrant fee is mentioned, stating that it needs to be paid in order to get the green card mailed out. I was under the impression that there wouldnt be any more fees unless I file for the cr-1 to remove the conditions. I tried logging in to that site mentioned below but unfortunately is on maintenance. I would really appreciate it  if someone can enlighten me if I need to pay this fee or I would just get the green card mailed without paying this fee? My wife landed 7 days ago and her passport was stamped after that all the documents remained with the office and she was given the letter that also mentions this fee. 

 

USCIS Immigrant Fee -  You must pay the USCIS Immigrant Fee to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) after you receive your immigrant visa and before you travel to the United States. Only children who enter the United States under the Orphan or Hague adoption programs, Iraqi and Afghan special immigrants, returning residents (SB-1s), and those issued K visas are exempt from this fee. Select USCIS Immigrant Fee on the USCIS website for more information. Important Notice: USCIS will not issue a Permanent Resident Card (Form I-551 or Green Card) until you have paid the fee.

 

THANK YOU!...

Hi, I have one question. When my husband send I-130 application for me he provide his adress where he lived that time, but now he is living in the different place, so when he is goong to send I-864 he is going to put new adress. So my question is does he need to send to USIC form I-865 notice that he (my sponsor) change his adress of living ?
