When I become a US Citizen I would like to petition to have my mother move here to the USA - Can anyone tell me how long the wait would be for the US government to issue a visa for her to come to live her if the petition gets approved.

Thank you VJers. :thumbs:

I am not sure, but if a PR can request for a parent you should submit the paperwork now. This way you can get a Priority Date and later upgrade when you become a USC.

This would save you much time, also to answer the question at hand the processing time for IR is of about 5 months (as per USCIS) however currently there are some service centers processing quicker 3-4 months and others slower 5-6 months.

Best of Luck.

An LPR cannot petition for a parent.

To avoid confusion, don't guess when you provide an answer. A wrong answer can be harmful. It can also give people false hope.

When I become a US Citizen I would like to petition to have my mother move here to the USA - Can anyone tell me how long the wait would be for the US government to issue a visa for her to come to live her if the petition gets approved.

Thank you VJers. :thumbs:

It takes about 6-12 months for a US citizen to petition for a parent. This is from filing the I-130 to getting the visa.

Aaron thank you very much for the information. Can I also petition for my brother or sister at the same time as my mother?

You can, but the waiting time for a sibling visa is much longer- about ten years.

You can file separate petitions for each family member. However, a parent is an Immediate Relative and it takes 1 year to get a visa. Siblings are not Immediate Relatives and must wait 10 years for visas.

While you can petition for them at the same time, they cannot immigrate at the same time.
