Hi

 

I have become US Citizen this year May and would like to petition for my sister. Can someone please help me to understand if i130 for sibling can be filed online? If yes, please share the link?

 

Also, what specific documents would I require for submission apart from our Birth Certificates and my Naturalization certificate? Thank you

you can't file it out online, you have to fill it out by hand and send it to the proper lockbox. the required documents are attached to this link. you shouldn't need anything else besides you and her birth certificate that shows at least one parent in common. https://www.uscis.gov/i-130

Unfortunately you can not file for your sister online.

Not what you asked, but just making sure you know it’s a long wait. For India, currently 14.5 years, and it gets longer every year.

am aware about it :)

But there is only so much I can do, hopefully there would be some reforms that may reduce the timelines.

If there’s any reform it’s likely to go in the other direction, removing the category.

For siblings? There is no such thing. Expediting can be done for spouses and minor children cases. Not for siblings, whether the petitioner is in the military or not.

 

They have to wait it out.

It's impossible to expedite a priority date, which is going to be about 95%+ of the ~15-20+ year wait.

The I-130 can be expedited, but it would just sit at NVC until the PD is current, and there's no way to speed that up. Actually, doing the I-130 expedite here has potentially negative consequences regarding the beneficairy's children (if any).

And “asking senators” doesn’t expedite, asking senators is what you do when your case is beyond normal timelines and you need extra help.

my mistake, ive heard of it but actually had a friend who actually got it expedited from the senator, he started in june and they are now waiting for an interview for his wife because he senator wrote a letter on his behave and they expedited it but i didn't realize it's a different for siblings, my bad guys.

A senator can submit an expedite request on your behalf, but it’s no more likely to move the case along than doing the expedite yourself by calling USCIS and asking for it. A senator is barred from influencing the decision or timeline.

 

And yes, the expedite is really only beneficial where the PD is current (immediate relatives [spouse, under 21 children, and parents] of a USC are current immediately upon filing).
