I got a question, which process will be faster to bring my sister here, i'm US citizen apply for my sister or parent with greencard hold apply for her?? and how long ?

thanks

neither are short.. and depends on your country of residence

For a child of an LPR (unmarried over 21) it would be family 2b (9 - 16 years)

For a sister of a USC it would be family 4 (12 - 23 years)

YMMV

One thing you can do is have her parents file for her and when they become USC they can get the application upgraded which will cut about 2 - 3 years off the wait.

But either way it is not going to happen any time soon.

You need to give us some information if you want specific answers.

What country is your sister a citizen of? How old is she? When do you anticipate your parents will become US citizens?
