Brother - F2A Approved.

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Brother was Approved at the embassy yesterday in Jamaica. His dad, a permanent resident accompanied him to the interview. My brother said he was asked two basic questions - who petitioned for you, when was the last time you traveled to the USA which he answered in March-April 2013 for 3 weeks. His father was asked many questions. The updated Tax Statement 2012 and AOS were all requested. A local agent from the consulate had made contact to the # on file about 30 days ago to inform us of the updated dcks they will need to process the case.

I wish the very best to those who will follow through with the process. I pray that the future threads will remain as informative as they have been and members timeline.gif as this helps. I also pray that the threads will remain as peaceful as they have been lately. Overall while the wait is longer ... cases that are interviewed for a F2A visas are generally a walk in the park. The approvals are not as high as the quickly processed CR1 as it reviewed in detail to reduce visa abuse. I know the wait is hard especially to those who has spouses/children who is unable to travel to see them.

Always remember that the request for a Travel visa (B1/B2) is viewed differently from the F2A visa so with that said -> feel free to applygood.gifyes.gif.

Stay Positive,

Ricardo
