221g after Interview for more documents required

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Friends! On a different thread as i couldn't find answers to my inquiries.

My USC Dad has petitioned all of us (3) minors to come here to the US, but we've all had different situations on our cases.

Now my youngest brother is the last one to come, he had an interview on April and was refused given the 221g them asking for some more evidence of my Dad's US domicile as he has been staying in the Philippines for about 2 yrs now (dual citizen), they gave us instructions and papers on how to send back documents to them through 2GO (free of charge to US embassy). We sent documents last week, now my question is how do we know if they've received them (they have the passport in there as well). Would they let us know? How would they update us? It's only been a week but I'm just curious of how this process goes and if anyone can share their experience. 

 

Thank You in advance!

Hopefully you have the 2go tracking number.   His case should update on the website after they review the documents.

 

I suspect your youngest brother may not be able to get a visa for family reunification as his petitioner, your father, does not "domicile in the US".  Just having dual citizenship is not enough.

They asked us additional documents and brothers passport be sent back to the Embassy. They needed evidence for my Dad's US domicile (banks accounts/etc/updated documentations of his latest US address).

My friend stayed with her husband in the Philippines too during the process same with my dad and they were good.

We submitted all the evidence they asked and other docs, I'm just wondering on how they update people when they receive them and how the process continues and if anyone has the same experience with me.

What docs did you submit? Your father must return to the US as the point of an immigrant visa is for family reunification in the US. If he prefers to stay in the Phils then there's no point for his son to immigrate.

My dad is planning to come back with him when all is done.

He's not planning to stay in the Philippines for good just as soon as the process is done, he will come back with him.

Did your petitioner state that on the letter that he wrote? That he's planning to return to the US together with his son?

I see that it is marked that they should submit proof of relationship as well. Was that addressed too?

On CEAC you will see the updates. Take note of the dates. Unfortunately they will not let you know if they already received the docs. It's a waiting game basically.

I will have to ask my dad and brother how exactly they were interviewed and the questions asked. As a co sponsor I’m helping them out with the process. Every time  I check on CEAC it updates on the day I check it. My brother said the CO didn’t look at the proof of relationship yet at the time of the interview, so I’m guessing that’s the reason why they’re asking for it? Thank you all for your thoughts, just getting anxious as to how would we get notices if they’ve received them or is it best that we contact them.

Yeah it can be frustrating. What proof did they submit? I remember coz when my hubby did his interview he showed pics of him and his dad at different stages of his life. His dad also filed for him.

Yes! Same pictures of different stages in my brother’s life, remittances, and other stuff. Do you know if there’s a way to contact them through email? Hate this waiting game but then again it has only been a week so not trying to stress too much but just can’t help it. We want to know asap so if it’s refused then we can plan what to do next.

The form also ticked off for Valid Passport. Was a valid passport not provided during the consulate interview?
