Parents received Visa Packet....BUT....

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello. I would like to ask something about the approved petition of my parents. Here's the case...

My uncle who is a US citizen petitioned my father and mother in 1987 and got approved this year. Everything went just fine and now they got their visa packet. It's the envelope that says "DO NOT OPEN". My parents received 2 visa packets; 1 for my father and 1 for my mother. The thing is, my father wants to go to the United States this February, while my mother wants to go there in April.

So my questions are:

1. Is it okay for them to depart from Manila, Philippines in two different dates although they were petitioned as husband/wife???

2. Will there be a problem at the Port of Entry if only 1 departs and the other leave behind???

I don't know what to tell my parents. I told them that it's probably better and safer if they depart together than immigrate to the US in different dates.

Please if anyone knows, please reply. Or what's your opinion. Thank you very much.
