Our case status updated to Issued yesterday!  And it also says the visa has been printed.  :dance:

I am wondering how long we can anticipate it will take for my husband to now receive his visa via DHL.  We've been waiting soooooooo long!  Now that we are close to the end, we feel even more anxious!  I'm just trying to get an idea of what to expect.  I know not to book any flights until it arrives, but I want to make some tentative plans at least!  I also check out DHL account like every 3 hours now looking for a DHL number.  Nothing yet.  Anyone's experience would be helpful.  Although it is my understanding that Mexico has their own special streamlined process, so I'd be especially interested in other Latin America & South American experiences.  THANK YOU!!!

arrowWhat is the process after Waiver approval? Ecuador in particular

    This is my first post, and it is probably in the wrong place, but the New forum is the only place I found the "start new topic" button in order to post.  My husband has received the approval notice for the I-601, Waiver of grounds of inadmissibility.  The consulate in Guayaquil, Ecuador has contacted him and told him to send in by DHL his passport & updated new medical exam. He sent those in on Monday, 4/7/14.  DHL tracking indicates the consulate signed for it on 4/8/14.  What can we expect for the rest of the process until the visa is actually issued.  The CEAC system still shows as Refused from the original interview from back in Sept 2013, but it has been having regular updates on the status date, most recently today.  I assume that date updates anytime someone looks at anything about his file.  I've seen multiple other waybills listed under his registration on DHL throughout the week in addition to his original one.  All of those extra waybills are going to the consulate too, most from Guayaquil, but a couple from Cuenca.  What is likely happening and what else can we expect?


Thank you all for your support.  While I only just recently joined as a member, I've been getting a ton of info from this site which has helped us immensely!

arrowOath Ceremony Information

Hello all! My wife just took her test this past Monday and has her ceremony this friday. Horrible part is my in laws bought their tickets to be here next month assuming it took 5 mo to process well it went faster. We don't want to change the date because I've heard stories of people waiting 6 months for a new date. So we figure there's a reason why this processed so quickly. My question is how many guests is my wife allowed to bring to the ceremony. It doesn't list on her appointment letter just says dress well and be there promptly. I've never been to a oath ceremony and don't even know what do I wear? Dress pants and nice shirt or full out suite and tie? Thanks everyone

arrowFileing AOS while here on Tourist Visa

Hello All,


My friend wanted to know if his sister can come to the USA on a tourist visa and stay. He is a USC and he doesn't know if his sister will like it here in the USA, so he thought he could have his sister come here on a tourist visa hang out and if she likes it stay. I read something online that says this could be done in 2 steps but it didn't describe what happens in the middle.


" Get a Green Card While Inside the United States

If you are currently in the United States and are one of the specified categories of relatives of a U.S. citizen in a preference category, you may be able to become a permanent resident in two steps.

  • Step One – Your U.S. citizen family member (sponsor) must file the Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, for you and it must be approved. You must wait for your priority date in your immigrant visa category to become current. Your priority date is the date when the Form I-130 is properly filed (with correct fee and signature) on your behalf by your U.S. citizen relative. For more information on priority dates, see the “Visa Availability & Priority Dates” page.
  • Step Two – Once the priority date in your visa category is current, you may file for Adjustment of Status with Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status.  Adjustment of Status is the process you go through to become a Permanent Resident. For more information, see the “Adjustment of Status” page."



So basically from what I am reading is she comes here on the tourist visa if she likes it he just filed the I-130 and waits then when that is finished he applies for the I-485? Once the I-130 is approved does he immediately apply for the AOS and EAD or does he have to wait the 10 years for he priority date? So if it is 10 years she will be illegal in the USA for 10 years? this is complicated.
