Concerned about the CR-1 Path

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


I'll be getting my I-130 out the door soon to begin the process for a CR-1 here in Taiwan. I noticed this NOTE (see below) at the bottom of the CR-1 Compairison page, does anyone know exactly what it means? I don't understand why it says the process could take up to 5 years, so I'm concerned about taking the CR-1 path. Help please....


Note: Technically, a US Legal Permanent Resident can apply for this visa for their Non-US Citizen Spouse however the waiting time is up to five years. They can file and wait for a visa number to become available (again up to five years) or wait until they themselves become a US Citizen -- whichever comes first will allow the visa process to move forward immediately.
