DS-230: Question 21a

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife (German) and I (USC) are filling out the DS-230 and have a question about box 21a on the DS-230. It asks which family members will be accompanying her to the U.S. now. We have two children, both USCs, who will be accompanying her, but not immigrating with her. I don't want to delay the process by listing them and have them thinking they need visas, too. Has anyone had a similar situation? I have been trying to call NVC to ask someone, but I can't get through.

Thanks for all replies,

Marc

21 (a) specifically asks for the family memebers who will be accompanying the applicant to the USA. So in this section for this particular instance, the answer will be "NONE." So she should not list the children here.

AlKhan: Please read the question carefully.


I-130 Timeline with USCIS:

It took 92 days for I-130 to get approved from the filing date

NVC Process of I-130:

It took 78 days to complete the NVC process

Interview Process at The U.S. Embassy

Interview took 223 days from the I-130 filing date. Immigrant Visa was issued right after the interview

I'm still confused. Our children will be *accompanying* her on the flight (in fact I might be accompanying her), but not *immigrating* with her (they are both USCs). But why would they be interested iif a USC is accompanying her? Do they mean "immigrating with her"? I think I'll try to reach NVC again.

Thanks

bluedog,

They are not interested in who is traveling with her - there will be a whole plane load of those folks. They care only about who will be accompanying her as an immigrant.

It means, family members who will be accompanying the applicants as immigrants related to this case. For your own clarification, you can call NVC and also write a note that the USC children will be accompanying her on the same flight.
