Moving parents/siblings for the UK to America

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I’m just wondering what the procedure is to move family members of a K1 holder from the UK to America?

 

Not that it’s something we are fully set on commiting too, we’re just wondering what the chances of this being allowed is, and what it involves? Is it different for parents compared to siblings?

 

Thanks :)

Nothing a k1 Visa holder can do. 

 

A USC can move parents in 12 to 14 months, and siblings in about 12 years


YMMV

They would need to make their own way, Parents if you decide to naturalise could have an option, siblings who knows such a long time in the future and things may well change.

Here ya go...concrete information from USCIS, but your K1 needs to get US citizenship first. That means  tick off all the boxes on your timeline. You have 6...only 22 more to go.

Then you really didnt look. Info is available everywhere. 

 

Once your partner gets US citizenship, they can sponsor family. Siblings take about 12 years and longer to process.
