arrowVisiting the States twice while waiting for my K-1 visa.

My partner and I are still in the early days of the visa process.  I spent three months in the U.S this summer where we got engaged. I'm back in New Zealand working as a registered nurse and are wanting to go over in October for two weeks to see him, then visit again at Xmas for a couple of weeks.  I have a letter from my hospital stating I am still employed there and obviously a return ticket will be bought.  My question is, am I best  to go just the once or if I have strong ties to NZ then both times should be fine?  Thanks  :joy:

arrowAdvanced Parole time out of country

I have an appointment as a visiting lecturer overseas for 3.5 months next year, and I am wondering if there is a limit to the amount of time I can be out of the country on with Advanced Parole. I realize the AP is valid for multiple entries over a year after issuance but I'm concerned there may be interviews or other matters that come up while I'm away, that the duration of my absence might jeopardize the application, or wether or not they actually let me back in. 


Any help greatly appreciated.

arrow2017 DV DS-260 submitted while F-1 to H-1B process is happening

I won a 2017 DV visa and have submitted my DS-260 to start the process. After looking at these discussions I am wondering if that was a bad move. I am currently in the process of switching from a EAD (on an expired F-1 visa) to an H-1B and am concerned that having submitted the DS-260, I will disrupt the H-1B process. Does anyone know if that is the case? My case becomes current in November.


Also, if I wanted to travel home for Christmas and I haven't finished the DV process, will I have problems getting back into the country?

Hi all!


Im a USC and my fiance is from the UK.


We are currently living abroad in New Zealand and we are expecting to get our NOA2 very shortly-- i'm trying to prepare everything for the next step of the process.


Since i will be moving back to the states without a job, my dad is going to be our co-sponsor-- what supporting evidence does he give if he is self employed?  Am i right in saying that we both will fill out the i-134 and both provide our latest tax return?  Is that all we need?

arrowExpired immigrant visa (EB3), never used

Good day everyone,


My name is Vinal.


I have a question for everyone.


I was given an EB3 visa in 2014 (petitioned by an employer), however due to the poor health of my father (I was the only relative he had), I had to keep deferring my immigration to the states until my immigrant visa expired. 


My questions are:


1.) Will this pose a problem for when I decide to immigrate to the States again?

2.) What will be my priority date? Will it be my old priority date in 2005 or will USCIS give me a new one?


Thanks very much.
