2 year condition or 10 year?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


My husband (US citizen) is applying for a visa (I-130) for me to join him in the states.  We both live in the UK but he has to go back to the states in March.  We will have been married for 2 years on 2nd May 2017.  Am I correct in thinking that if we have been married for 2 years at the point the visa is approved I will be granted a 10 year visa as opposed to the 2 year condition, because we will have been married for 2 years?


Thank you

Thank you for your response.  My husband needs to be back in the states before May, if I stay behind in the UK do you know if I am able to finalise the visa without him here?  And should I arrange my interview for a date after our 2 year anniversary?
