When can I apply to bring my family members to US?

Hi,

I entered US via K1-visa a year ago, and just got my temporary 2-yr green card.

When can I start the application to bring my family members to the US? I knew that a US citizen can do that but I heard from somewhere that in my case, I could do it quicker but not clear how.

Does it mean that I could become US citizen after 3 yrs as Permanent Resident or what?

Please advise.

Thanks.

Once you become a USC you can apply to bring parents over , siblings can take a lot longer if you check the USCIS processing dates it will give you an idea of the length of waits.

When can I start applying for US citizenship once I receive my "Green card"?

Does this "Green card" mean the 10-yr green card or it also counts with the 2-yr green card I just received?

Thanks.

There is a web page with the USCIS that shows how long it takes to bring a family member. Some countries, like the Philippines, can take many years, in some cases over 20. Good luck

2 year validity or 10 year validity, the bearer of the card is a Legal Permanent Resident of the US.

Just coruios, how long is the process to petition ur parents? and what are the requirements aside from being USC?

Claudeth can you give me the web page for that?

Thank you..............

Parents are Immediate Relatives (for US Citizens), so petitioning time is the same as for a spouse or child.

Other requirements can be found at uscis.gov in the "How Do I" section (your particular question is in there :) ).
