Upgrading from F2A to Immidiate Relative

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: IR-1/CR-1 Visa Country: India


I am in the process of getting my US citizenship. I expect to take oath sometime in December. Once I am US citizen I plan on upgrading my wifes petition which is curretly under the F2A catagory to Immidiate relative. My wifes I-130 is already approved and waiting at NVC for visa numbers to be available.

How long does it take for the application to start moving after the upgrade? I mean generating the Choice of agent.

I spoke with NVC today and they said it takes 4-6 weeks which is disspointing. Are they just giving very conservative estimates?
