HI you all, I want to start the process to bring my parents to US. They are right now in their country. My first question is, in which way it is easier the process; when they are already here or when they still are in their country (Paraguay)? I just want to try to figure how long take all the process.

How do I start? I'm a citizen. They are 68 and 66 years old.

Hi

You can petition your parents by filing I-130 to USCIS. They will be under IR-5 section and it will take roughly around a year.

The beneficiary will have to stay in their own country till they get the visa after interview at their local consulate/embassy.

The whole process is take a bit over a year currently. With you parents being older you may encounter questions about supporting them long term as they will not collect social security and have to pay for medicade


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Because they have never worked at least 10 years in US and contributed into Medicare.

I think they can buy in after 5 years, not cheap.

At least there is Obamacare once they arrive.

why they cannot apply for medicare?

Why would the American taxpayer pay for their medical insurance? You would be their sponsor, it would be up to you to help them with that.

Simple, they do not qualify for it.

Often with parents, the consulate want to see proof of insurance for the parent before the visa will be issued. They want to ensure the parents will not become public charges.

Logical to me

good luck

Yet any pregnant woman of any legal status can get emergency Medicare to cover the birth and hospital stay of her and baby regardless of manner of birth (natural, c section)

You have confused Medicare and medicaid. Medicare is for those over 65 , not many 65+ year olds of any immigration status get pregnant
