  1. This is an addition to their original proclamation. I suggest you read the complete proclamation order from the Whitehouse.gov https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/proclamation-suspending-entry-aliens-present-risk-u-s-labor-market-following-coronavirus-outbreak/
  2. As far as l know, embassies are going to schedule interviews only for spouses, children under 21 of U.S. Citizens and those who are not included in the ban. They are NOT going to schedule interviews for those categories including in the immigration ban.
  3. When are you planning to travel? Just so you know that U.S. Passports are taken 6 months to be delivered.
  4. Yes. F2B is affected by the immigration ban. If your petitioner would be a U.S. Citizen probably your category will be F1. Anyway F1 is also affected by the ban.
  5. I believe your mom needs an invoice ID number in order to send all the required documents. I suggest call NVC and request that Invoice ID number.
  6. You will get your WL when your PD is current in chart B. NVC needs to collect fees, civil documents, affidavits, l-260 to leave your case ready for interview. Once your PD is current in the chart A, NVC will schedule your interview, and they will send them your paperwork to your embassy.
  7. Usually NVC send those WL before the following month. If you don't receive the letter during the month you are current, then yes, call them and ask. Real example: the PD of my son will be current on VB for July 2020. We received his WL on June 24, 2020.
  8. Actually you have to check both charts. With chart B, you will know when you will receive your WL from NVC. Once you are DQ then you have to check the chart A, so you will know when you will probably receive your notification for an interview in your embassy.
  9. Congratulations. BTW l never received my interview notice in the documents tab. Be ready for your oath ceremony. You will receive your naturalization certificate after the interview.
  10. Hello, everyone. I became a U.S. citizen yesterday and l also received the WL from NVC for my son. His currently category is F2B but according to my knowledge his category will change automatically after my naturalization to F1. Anyway, l want my son to keep his F2B so far. However, l am not sure if this category could suffer a backtrack in the future due to all these "stranger things" situations: EO, COVID-19, furloughs, etc. and l would like to wait the opt out of F1 just in case. My question is: how long does NVC to approve it? l want to be as prepared as possible and make the best decision so he can immigrate as soon as possible. Any suggestions? Thank you.
  11. Hi everyone. I am wondering if anybody here has recently (2020) opted-out F1 to F2B when the petitioner naturalizes. I am confused because there is conflicting advise on the USCIS and the State Department websites: Uscis says: "lf you want to opt out of the automatic conversion, you must submit a written request to the USCIS office that approved your Form I-130." State Department says: "Applicants whose case is at NVC should submit requests using NVC's online inquiry form. NVC will forward the request to USCIS and change the visa category back to F2B upon receipt of USCIS's approval." I would like to know how long this process takes. TIA
  12. I really hope so. I have two stamps already. Although technically, it is the "same" l feel l am in limbo. I wrote to my congressman, Senator, Ombudsman, l have sent many inquiries to USCIS, no answers so far... Still waiting. It is frustrating.
