Your mother doesn't need to wait for the priority date. See information below:



Immediate Relative Immigrant Visas (Unlimited): These visa types are based on a close family relationship with a United States (U.S.) citizen described as an Immediate Relative (IR). The number of immigrants in these categories is not limited each fiscal year. Immediate relative visa types include:


  • IR-1: Spouse of a U.S. Citizen - Learn More
  • IR-2: Unmarried Child Under 21 Years of Age of a U.S. Citizen
  • IR-3: Orphan adopted abroad by a U.S. Citizen - Learn More
  • IR-4: Orphan to be adopted in the U.S. by a U.S. citizen - Learn More
  • IR-5: Parent of a U.S. Citizen who is at least 21 years old

I am also in the processing getting my mother to US. Her case left NVC on May 29 2013 and still have no interview date yet.

We are in the same boat. My MIL case completed email from NVC on June 7, 2013. No interview date set yet.

The case is a GZO, it was said it should be set/scheduled in 5 days.

Is your case a GUZ or GZO?

Guangzhou scheduling is lagged at NVC for the moment.

I've talked and talked and talked with the supervisors there, this last week - they don't know anything for why and keep suggesting that the interview scheduling is going to occur the 2nd week of July.

i suggest you email GUZ IV at their email form - remind them that scheduling is lagged at NVC because they (GUZ IV) not release any slots to NVC, and ask WHEN they will release appointment slots to NVC.

Purty please? try one or five times? this 'slotting' process is driving me (and 11 others, plus you fellas) absolutely nuts.

p3 is 'generic' for my visa type and always means the DS-230/IV set. There is NO PLACE on the timeline that states that, so I use the P3 at the consulate for the timetick. IMO, the timeline data points need to be refactored, almost 4 years now.

also - 'sent' is date that I sent it off.

I emailed US Consulate Guangzhou. It took them about 3 days to respond back to me.

Thank you for your inquiry.

We have received notice that the NVC is sending the case file to the Consulate. We have not yet received the case file. Shipments of case files from the NVC can take four months or longer to arrive in China and clear Chinese customs. We have no control over how quickly case files are cleared by Chinese customs, and long delays are possible.

We will contact you by email regarding interview schedule for subject case after we have received the case file from the NVC. Your patience is appreciated.

Sincerely,

Immigrant Visa Unit
U.S. Consulate General Guangzhou
1 Shamian South Street
Guangzhou, Guangdong 510133
