Biter,

As an LPR you can only petition your spouse and children (minor/unmarried above 21).

Petition involving parents and siblings you must be a US Citizen.

sorry, but you cannot file for any of them. you have to be a USC. Residents can only file for spouses and unmarried children. When you become a USC, you can file for each one of them, but depending from which country you are from, it can take a very long time.

No. You cannot file an Affidavit of Support, as tourists who are on vacation for a few weeks don't need support. You cannot help them getting a tourist visa either, and most likely they will not be able to get one at all.

Since you already asked if you can help them to immigrate, and knowing the Filipinos are the 2nd largest immigrant group to the United States, you will understand why.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Here is the June edition of the DOS bulletin:

http://www.travel.state.gov/visa/bulletin/bulletin_4879.html

For brothers and sisters of US citizens who are from the Phillipines, they are currently processing people who applied in April 1988, so it's a 22 year wait for now.

It doesn't mention parents, but they usually take less than a year. I don't know if there are restrictions on the Phillipines regarding that.

Sorry for the bad news...
