How many more years should I wait? Does anybody have any Idea? The petition is for an F2B visa. The priority date is March 16, 2020. It has been more than six years since the first date of application. NVC confirmed on June 2020 that the visa application is documentarily qualified, and it is in queue for an interview appointment with the consulate. I am not able to get any clear information on when it is going to happen. It looks like going to wait for more years. Does anyone from any part of the world has got an interview appointment after the rescinding of PP10014? I would be grateful if you can share your recent experience.

I have the same issue dear. My petition is f2B visa too. I have been documentarily qualified since December 2020 and it is in the queue waiting for an interview appointment. My priority date is Jan 5th 2006.

You have to be patient. Right now the visa bulletin for f2B visa is still in July 2015. It's going slow at the moment. Since your priority date is at 2020, I'm guessing it will take Several years before you get scheduled for an interview since they are still dealing with those in 2015.

Btw what year were you petitioned for?

The embassy in my country is not yet scheduling any visa interviews, so it's a backlog in most countries I presume. It seems embassies are still hesitatnt due to COVID-19 issues.

Sorry I made a mistake. My priority date is March 2015.It is up since July 2020. But I did not get interview appointment.

I think you made a mistake to your priority date. How comes you did not get interview appointment for the priority date which was up  long a go.

I have contacted NVC. The person informed me to just be patient and wait. 

The other information that she provided is the US embassy from the country is providing limited visa appointments.

Is there any one who have received interview appointment for f2b since after the receding of the ban?

Hi I have questions for my sisters F2B petition. It is now in NVC and we already paid the AOS. Waiting for it to clear for us to go on next step which is submission of the AOS. But was wondering if we can transfer the case from Manila US Embassy to Australia US Embassy. Since she is residing there right now and not in the Philippines. I’ve read somewhere this could be done.  Just want some confirmation/clarification if it’s true, and if it is HOW? Thanks

If your sister has legal resident status in Australia, she may contact the US consulate in Sydney to request that her case be transferred from Manila -- https://ph.usembassy.gov/visas/immigrant-visas/case-transfer-request/

Priority Date for me if October 2014. I got an email from the embassy in July saying they're working to schedule my interview. They then emailed me again March 3rd to basically say the they're aware that my application is still awaiting an interview and they are still working to set my interview date (I'm assuming it was at this point the executive order preventing my interview date to being schedule got lifted). They said they'll contact me in 120 days if I still haven't gotten an interview date.

 

Still waiting for an interview date, lol.
