Bringing my twin over

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


So this is a random question (for me anyway) I moved here a few months ago to be with my now husband. I love every minute of being here and finally being with my SO... However, my other main guy in my life is my twin brother I miss him a lot daily. He likes the idea of after graduating uni moving here to be with us and probably staying with us until he either goes back to uni or whatever. What would the procedure for something like this be? Is it worth my time trying? After I get my green card and possibly citizenship etc. just wanting to know the legalities and the possibilities.

Thank you in advance :-)

nope, the wait would be over 15 years

first, you need to get the GC, citizenship is 3 years away, plus the petition for siblings, (only USC can file for siblings) is over 12 years

so probably 16 years if not more

he can always come to visit you but never overstay, and in the future you can go back and visit him as well

he can get a student visa, but that also is temporary,

I would put it at over 20 years, a bit of a guess, anyway no time soon.

***** Moving from AOS to What Visa forum *****

If he wants to come for just a bit, he can use the Visa Waiver Program to visit, or you could help him pay for an F1 student visa (on which he can only work very limited, on campus) for a year or more. But to immigrate, as others have stated, it would be many years wait.
