As a U.S. Citizen, how long is the process when applying for a cousin and uncle?

You can't file for your cousin or uncle.

US citizens can only file for fiancees, spouses, children, parents, and siblings.

For an Uncle to come from you being a USC , you would apply for the common ( sibling ) parent to you. That would take about a year for the person to get here. They would then have to come and establish their life here and become a USC which is an additional 5 years , Then they could apply for their sibling which is an additional 13 to 23 years currently, probably much longer then as the category fills up. So 1+5+13 means 19 years is the quickest an Uncle could come and then they could apply for their unmarried adult child which is 7 years or so. If the child is married the Uncle would have to become a USC (5 years) and then file for married adult son about 8 years. So for your nephew it would be 19 years plus 7 to 13 years.

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