Hello, 

 

I am beneficiary. My NVC process completed. My consular sent me e-mail about interview and ask me Selective Service Registration. I really confused about this. I am not citizen or immigrant yet. What is Selective Service Registration??? Please look photos.

It is a requirement for all immigrant males between 18-25.

 

If you receive an immigrant visa after turning 26 you don't need to enroll.

mate I am not immigrant either. I haven't got SSN yet.

You are applying for an immigrant visa, and will be one. You will need to register (if you're in the required age range) once you're in the US.

Correct. They may have you fill out this form at the interview, but I've heard that doing so is outdated and varies by embassy. It's not the registration itself, but a confirmation of your awareness of the requirement to do so once you enter the US within 90 days.

  It is a requirement that you register if you are in that age.  NOT registering will be a problem if you want to become a USC.  That being said  I am over 60 and they last time they drafted registrants was when I was in high school. 


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

The biggest issue is you would usually need to wait until you turned 31 to be able to apply for naturalisation, even if your lack of SSS registration is deemed "willful". It isn't a permanent bar.

if I recall correctly when I was getting student loans part of the fafsa (federal student aid) asks if you were registered for it. that was my motivation for doing it.

This is correct. If one fails to do so, you're in for a really, really complicated process if you ever want student aid.

OP in not saying he doesn't want to register. He is just confused how to do so, not being in the US yet.

 

 

OP, I think for your interview the consular wants you to fill out and bring in the "Fillable Registration Form".
https://www.sss.gov/Portals/0/PDFs/regform_copyINT.pdf

 

Here is the link, might be helpful.

https://www.sss.gov/Home/registration

 

3 options are given there:

1. Register online - a SS# is required,so this is not your option.

2. Outside US Register online - the same, a SS# is required.

3. Fillable Registration form - "if you have a social security number and you are not able to register online, or if you do not have a social security number, or if you are an immigrant male (documented or undocumented) age 18 through 25, please complete the fillable registration form here" .   This is for you i believe. :)

 

Good luck with your interview!!!

When you AOS from a K1, they automatically register you, yes? Funny/headache story, we mailed the AOS package the day before my husband's 26th birthday. The green card was aproved 6+ months later. So... not sure what they did. 


Marriage/ AOS Timeline:

23 Dec 2015: Legal marriage

23 Jan 2016: Wedding!

23 Jan 2016: "Blizzard of the Century", wedding canceled/rescheduled (thank goodness we were legally married first or we'd have had a big problem!) :sleepy:

24 Jan 2016: Small "civil ceremony" with friends and family who were snowed in with us. December was a bit of a secret and people had traveled internationally and knew we *had* to get married that weekend, and our December legal marriage was nothing but signing a piece of paper at our priest's kitchen table, without any sort of vows etc so this was actually a very special (if not legally significant) day. (L)

16 Apr 2016: Filed for AOS and EAD/AP (We delayed a bit-- no big rush, enjoying the USCIS break)

23 Apr 2016: Wedding! Finally! :luv:

27 Apr 2016: Electronic NOA1 for all 3 :dancing:
29 Apr 2016: NOA1 Hardcopy for all 3
29 Jul 2016: Online service request for late EAD (Day 104)
29 Jul 2016: EAD/AP Approved ~3 hours after online service request
04 Aug 2016: RFE for Green Card (requested medicals/ vaccination record. They already have it). :ranting:
05 Aug 2016: EAD/AP Combo Card arrived! (Day 111)
08 Aug 2016: Congressional constituent request to get guidance on the RFE. Hoping they see they have the form and approve!

K-1 Visa Timeline:

PLEASE NOTE. This timeline was during the period of time when TSC was working on I-129fs and had a huge backlog. The average processing time was 210+ days. This is in no way predictive of your own timeline if you filed during or after April 2015, unless CSC develops a backlog. A backlog is anything above the 5-month goal time listed on USCIS's site

14 Feb 2015: Mailed I-129f to Dallas Lockbox. (L) (Most expensive Valentine's card I've ever sent!)

17 Feb 2015: NOA1 "Received Date"
19 Feb 2015: NOA1 Notice Date
08 Aug 2015: NOA2 email! :luv: (173 days from NOA1)

17 Aug 2015: Sent to NVC

?? Aug 2015: Arrived at NVC

25 Aug 2015: NVC Case # Assigned

31 Aug 2015: Left NVC for Consulate in San Jose

09 Sep 2015: Consulate received :dancing: (32 days from NOA2)

11 Sep 2015: Packet 3 emailed from embassy to me, the petitioner (34 days from NOA2).

18 Sep 2015: Medicals complete

21 Sep 2015: Packet 3 complete, my boss puts a temporary moratorium on all time off due to work emergency :clock:

02 Oct 2015: Work emergency clears up, interview scheduled (soonest available was 5 business days away--Columbus Day was in there)

13 Oct 2015: Interview

13 Oct 2015: VISA APPROVED :thumbs: (236 days from NOA1)

19 Oct 2015: Visa-in-hand

24 Oct 2015: POE !

15 Dec 2015: Fiance's mother's B-2 visa interview: APPROVED! So happy she will be at the wedding! :thumbs:

You cannot assume that they will automatically register you. The burden is on the immigrant unfortunately to check that they are registered, and if they are not, do so within 30 days of arriving.
