Hello,

I am a USC and my husband is a LPR. I am interested in bringing his sister's to the United States to either visit or live here permanently from Jamaica. Is this possible because I will be the one filing for them? How long does this usually take and what are the required forms to complete? I'm really lost at this whole process but I would really like them to be here with us. Any suggestions or comments are helpful and appreciated. Thank you

You can't file for them as you're not related to them in any way. Once your husband has his citizenship certificate in hand, he can file I-130 for his sisters, not sooner.

tourist visa is the most obvious short term answer.... if approved, it will allow them up to a 6 mos. visit. There is no current permanent immigration solution (short of the green card lottery) until such time as your husband is a USC... and even then it is another 10 years after that.

A USC cannot petition for permanent immigration for "in-laws" of any kind. A resident can petition for spouse and children.. A USC can petition for spouse, children, parents and siblings.
