I recently traveled with my husband (originally from Iran) on a cruise using his conditional green card which he recently received. We did previously travel to Caribbean on AP and had no issues returning to USA. Upon disembarkation we were escorted directly from the ship to the secondary inspection and held there for hours. First we were questioned about our luggage contents and extensively searched by supervisors. The only illegal thing the found was a banana which my husband was planning to eat on the way down from the ship. Then my husband was taken away and questioned for a long time. I was questioned for even longer time (both separately). I am US citizen with European descent living in USA most of my life and they could not understand why I travel so much and how I can afford it. They had a problem with me having a spare phone (I have extra old phone with international sim card, so I could call from abroad in case of emergency as my regular plan wouldn't work). Since I previously traveled to Middle East they made a huge issue with it. Asked me if I spoke Arabic and to give them all contacts and names of whom I spoke with etc..Asked If my Family accepts his religion and he is not even a Muslim! It was a horrible experience. First I was treated as criminal then like a possible terrorist. They found out that I have European Union passport and they had problem with it as well. I was asked sooo many questions!!!!!!! Then they copied all of 3 phones we had with us. All data, e-mails, txts, photos. Took copies of our driver licenses. I felt so violated. I have nothing to hide, but them reading my personal e-mails and looking through my photos is not a pleasant feeling! I received letter explaining they can do whatever they want with my phone, so I am assuming the read my e-mails, txts, media accounts and look through photos, Anyone went to similar experience?

arrowF2A Question, plz help!

My friend wanted me to post this question for her as her English isn't that good.

So she lives in Iran with her husband, She has a green card which she applied for her husband - F2A visa.

She comes and stays in the States for 2-5 months at a time...


Priority date: Jan 11, 2016


She has her case at NVC, and in June she got a letter from them saying:


"Currently, a visa number is unavailable and this petition is not eligible for further processing at this time. The reason for this delay is that there are more applicants for visas than there are immigrant visa numbers available under the limitation prescribed by law. For some visa categories, this delay could be many years."



I also checked her case number at state's website and this is what it said: 


"Please follow the instructions you received from the National Visa Center (NVC) that list the six steps you must take before NVC can schedule your visa interview appointment. This includes submitting to NVC various fees, forms and documents. Once NVC has received all the required items, they will let you know if anything is missing or incomplete."



What does this mean?

How long is this going to take?

Where can I find a forum that explains all these in simple language? :)

Any information would be helpful

Thanks ahead!

arrowHow did you organize your papers?

On the USCIS website states: "Avoid using heavy-duty staples; instead use ACCO fasteners or heavy clips."


The problem using ACCO fasteners is if I punch hole the papers, some of the writing will be missing since it is so close to the edge of the paper. 


Did you guys staple your papers? If not, how did you organize them?
