Community SpotlightThis morning someone from the US consulate came and visited my husbands apartment in Lagos, Nigeria randomly. They asked if he lived alone, verified his identity with a passport photo that we had provided them at the time of our visa application, asked if they could do an inspection of the apartment (looked throughly through his wardrobe, bathrooms and kitchen) etc....I don't currently reside "permanently" anywhere and it will be that way for the foreseeable future. We work remotely (for a foreign company) and will be traveling from place to place. In fact, I'm traveling to Russia next week to meet her family for the first time!
That said, our intention is to move to the US to live permanently....Can I refuse having my phone searched by an immigration officer if I am returning to the US as a permanent resident? Do I run any risks if I refuse to hand or unlock my phone/ask for warrant/ask for supervisor...etc?The U.S. will ease travel restrictions for international visitors who are vaccinated against Covid-19 in November, including those from the U.K. and EU, the White House said Monday.
Noncitizens visiting the United States will have to show proof of vaccination and a negative Covid test taken within three days of departure, said Jeff Zients, who is leading the nation’s Covid response efforts for the White House.The latest October US Visa Bulletin data has been released, along with VisaJourney's November estimates!Saint Luke's Extension Clinic just announced MANDATORY completion of COVID vaccination before any medical will be issued in the Philippines. Pretty much putting to rest any speculation about what COVID vaccine policy will be going forward. No vaccine, no medical report. If it is a two dose vaccine both doses must be completed on schedule for a medical report to be issued.Recent Immigration Discussions
Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card - fee waiver question 10:46 am today
Read 15 Times
I hope this is the right forum for this question. I don't collect SNAP benefits but my spouse and children do. I work full time and make decent money but she stays at home with our three kids so they (spouse and kids) are still eligible.
I unfortunately lost my green card. I read about there being a fee waiver and I think I am eligible. My question is regarding this passage on the fee waiver page:
"Relying primarily on public cash assistance for income maintenance can affect your eligibility for some immigration benefits, depending on the totality of the circumstances. You may be inadmissible to the United States (and therefore ineligible for certain immigration benefits like a Green Card) because you are more likely than not to become a public charge. You may also be deportable for already having become a public charge within 5 years of entering the United States for reasons that arose before you entered the country."
I entered the country in 2016 with no conditions on my green card (I had one previously). Should I be concerned about applying for a fee waiver?
Thank you! I'll try to reply promptly if you think you need more information in order to answer.
Concurrent processing? 10:45 am today
Read 16 Times
My US citizen daughter over 21 filed petition for me in February of 21. Onlinne processing time says call them if filed before
June 10, 2020.
I-130 is filed online is still being processed and looks like it might take a while.
However AOS package was files mailed -in( paper forms) for concurrent filing.
Just received initial interview notice for I-485 already.
A. I thought this might be at or around after I-130 is approved. That doesn't seem to the case. Does concurrent mean I-485 interview etc. can happen for I-485 prior to I-130 approval? Is this normal?
B. On initial interview notice for last week of Nov 21. it's not clear who's required and can be with me at the interview. Is sponsor/co-sponsor (happens to be my daughter and husband) required to be there? Is petitioner (my daughter) required to be there?
BTW, my daughter started medical school in Florida (we're in Maryland) and is a full time student there - it is not practical for her to come to Baltimore Field Office due to her studies and exams etc. Can I take her birth certs/passport etc. with me there?
C. Sponsor is a Permanent resident and has his green card misplaced and is ordering a new copy. Might take a while to get a new copy from USICS. He happens to have a photocopy of the green card. Can we take this on the interview and say the replacement copy has/is being ordered?
D. Seems I have only a month left to prepare Medical Exam info to take with me. I hope that is sufficient time. If not, would USICS allow rescheduling if preparing medical exam takes longer?

We would like my mother-in-law to visit from Mexico. She has a 10 year tourist visa to US that expires in January. I have heard different things about how US immigration prefers there to be 6 months - 90 days of a validly left on the visa. Is this true?
