Isi it necessary to provide secondary evidence or with the birth certificate is enough? I only have the birth certificate.


I know this is difficult, but I will keep trying. It will work because, this distance is nothing compared to our love. :wub:

06/07/2014 we went to our first date. :dancing: Why did we take so long to go out? :ranting:

06/22/2014 I said YES.. I want to be your girlfriend... :luv:

07/16/2014 I had to come back to Colombia because my program was over :cry:

10/10/2014 My love met me in Colombia to spend my birthday weekend with me. We got engaged (L)

02/17/2015 - 03/09/2015 He came back to Colombia to visit me and met my family. :star:

05/12/2015 We couldn't stand the distance, so he decided to move here with me. :wub:

If only for your mom, then a legal birth certificate should suffice.  If someone is bringing both parents, then a marriage certificate would also be necessary.

 

Good Luck!

Thanks. I am only applying for my mom. Do you know how long the process for parents is taking?

Around 12 months .....  but right now the issuance of the IR 5 visa is suspended through presidential EO. Until that is lifted the petition won’t get out of NVC.. no interviews for IR5 will beheld while the order is in place. I think it currently runs through the end of the year

Does this order include parents and family members? so is there a point on applying right now or Should I just wait?

Yes, a parent would be issued an IR5 visa when approved.  As to your second question, that is up to you, but getting an application in the queue is probably not a bad idea.

I was reading the July 22 EO, where does it specifically mention IR-5 visas?

It refers to and extends the April EO.  

 

You will not find anywhere where it specifically mentions IR-5 visas.

It bans issuing immigrant visa to all except those exempted from the orders.

 

Parents of USC are not exempt from the order so they are not mentioned specifically.   Only those that are exempt from the order are mentioned specifically.

File now and once it gets to the NVC it will depend on the state of any executive orders.  Spouses and children are exempt from the EOs.

But to be able to sponsor your parent you have to be 21 and above. The proclamation suspends issuing of visas to parents unless their US child is under 21. So basically IR-5s are out of the picture for now

Exactly. The relevant text of the EO is reproduced below. First part summary: immigrant visas banned. Second part summary (2(a) below): only those seeking visas from outside the US affected (iow, AOS is ok, those who already have visas ok). Third part summary (2(b) below): list of exceptions to the ban. Nowhere on that list does it state parents of USCs. If your parent is also say a doctor who can help fight Covid, they can get an exemption to the ban.

 

Section 1.  Suspension and Limitation on Entry.  The entry into the United States of aliens as immigrants is hereby suspended and limited subject to section 2 of this proclamation.

 

Sec. 2.  Scope of Suspension and Limitation on Entry.  
(a)  The suspension and limitation on entry pursuant to section 1 of this proclamation shall apply only to aliens who:

(i)    are outside the United States on the effective date of this proclamation;

(ii)   do not have an immigrant visa that is valid on the effective date of this proclamation; and

(iii)  do not have an official travel document other than a visa (such as a transportation letter, an appropriate boarding foil, or an advance parole document) that is valid on the effective date of this proclamation or issued on any date thereafter that permits him or her to travel to the United States and seek entry or admission.

 

(b)  The suspension and limitation on entry pursuant to section 1 of this proclamation shall not apply to:

(i)     any lawful permanent resident of the United States;

(ii)    any alien seeking to enter the United States on an immigrant visa as a physician, nurse, or other healthcare professional; to perform medical research or other research intended to combat the spread of COVID-19; or to perform work essential to combating, recovering from, or otherwise alleviating the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak, as determined by the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Homeland Security, or their respective designees;  and any spouse and unmarried children under 21 years old of any such alien who are accompanying or following to join the alien;

(iii)   any alien applying for a visa to enter the United States pursuant to the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program;

(iv)    any alien who is the spouse of a United States citizen;

(v)     any alien who is under 21 years old and is the child of a United States citizen, or who is a prospective adoptee seeking to enter the United States pursuant to the IR-4 or IH-4 visa classifications;

(vi)    any alien whose entry would further important United States law enforcement objectives, as determined by the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Homeland Security, or their respective designees, based on a recommendation of the Attorney General or his designee;

(vii)   any member of the United States Armed Forces and any spouse and children of a member of the United States Armed Forces;

(viii)  any alien seeking to enter the United States pursuant to a Special Immigrant Visa in the SI or SQ classification, subject to such conditions as the Secretary of State may impose, and any spouse and children of any such individual; or

(ix)    any alien whose entry would be in the national interest, as determined by the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Homeland Security, or their respective designees.

This makes no sense.

NO WHERE does the "proclamation suspends issuing of visas to parents unless their US child is under 21."  There is no such exception.
