  1. Pay those fees and then on to the DS-260, Take your time to get all the information right before submitting. Congratulations.
  2. Interesting ... that would make sense. So that one year CSPA protection freeze law says that filing the DS-260 is one such step of seeking a visa with the NVC. The law basically says that you must be seeking a visa with NVC and that should be enough that you are covered with the one year CSPA protection freeze law. Everything will be fine then using askNVC email. Just patience.
  3. You have filed the DS-260's, which is the most important step legally. Now, the CSPA age of your daughter is protected for a year from petition approved/visa bulletin "current" date. You got a lot of good information from your phone call. Everything is just fine for your case childrens' cases. Because the F2A visa bulletin is "current", NVC is really busy for your visa class. It will happen. Just to be sure ... if you did NOT use the following webpage for your email correspondence with NVC, please use this link and send in askNVC request with your CSPA info, calculator results, and CSPA protection request for your daughter: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/visa-information-resources/ask-nvc.html
  4. "As you already know, the child was over 21 in CSPA terms when a visa was first available. In your shoes I would request NVC to officially roll it back to F2B now. " This is the best advice.
  5. It is your choice to give it a shot at a interview. The consular officer will do the CSPA calculation and get the same result you have gotten given that the dates you gave earlier are all the correct dates resulting in a CSPA age of: 21 years and 4 months. The consular officer has no choice but to deny the F22 visa.
  6. "This happened just about 2days ago. And so my question was, could they have made this change just because I requested for it? Can they make such a change even if they know the child doesn't qualify for cspa and that the consular officer at the interview will not give the visa?" It appears that NVC changed it back to F22 and accepted all the fees based on your request ... with notice that final determination is with the consular officer at the interview. You have already paid the fees for the F22 immigration visa. You will not get that money back. It is YOUR choice to give it a try with the consular officer at the interview. From everything I know, there is no waiver you can get from the consular officer on this matter. There is the highest probability of F22 visa denial with CSPA age of 21 years and 4 months. If approved, it would be headline news we would like to hear about. If F22 visa is denied, the NVC case will automatically become F24 with the same original priority date. When F24 visa becomes available all the immigration fees will have to get paid again. My opinion is to realize that F22 visa will not be possible from the consular officer.
  7. I checked your results and also got your son's CSPA age as 21 years, 4 months and 18 days. The problem is that USCIS took only 5 months, 8 days to approve your son's I-130 petition. During that 5 month time interval, your son's CSPA age was frozen. IF UCSIS doubled that approval time to 10 months, such that the I-130 was approved on Jan 10, 2019, then your son's CSPA age would be 20 years, 11 months and 18 days (under 21 frozen as of July 1st, 2019 for one year). 1) CSPA age is only calculated based on Priority Date becoming "Current". 2) No they will not revert it back to F22 3) There is nothing you can do to get F22 visa status for your son. On your son's Priority Date of March 2nd, 2018, his age was 20 years and 6 months. This age as of filing your son's I-130 is way too close to an age of 21 years to expect CSPA to help for F22 visa. Basically, your son's I-130 was filed too late to be considered for the F22 visa. You have to accept your son's F24 visa timeline as a result.
  8. This is the part of the uploading system where you would do that. The instructions should explain how to add additional sponsors. The system appears to change how things are done, so I don't know the latest steps.
  9. Please do not post non-related CSPA questions to this thread. Start a separate thread please for questions for applicants other than your CSPA protection questions for your child.
  10. With your particular path of contacting NVC for CSPA protection and ultimately you are able to submit the DS-260 (and you have messaged me that the CEAC visa class has stayed at F22) keep watching that CEAC visa class over the next number of days. If it stays at F22, that means you have already got CSPA protection before you filed the DS-260. (really amazing) Once all your documents are uploaded and you get NVC "documentarily qualified" (you will get an email for that), your case will be automatically be sent to get ready for scheduling the US Embassy interview (and you get an email for that too). Notice that during all this time in all cases, were are kept in the dark on the outcome of requesting CSPA protection (there is no email).
  11. Well that is REALLY important information. I started this thread thinking it was great that NVC gave my DS-260 submitted applicant CSPA before that F22 visa became "current" because many people were saying NVC would not do anything related to CSPA until the that visa was "current". Now you have a new FIRST that I know of: the NVC reviewing CSPA for an applicant with a F22 visa that is "current" but the DS-260 not yet submitted. Please keep this thread up-to-date with your FIRST-OF-A-KIND progress.
  12. Contact the NVC as mentioned above. Your son as you say has a different case no and invoice id no ... but your applicant son info is not showing like you applicant daughter.. That is a problem NVC needs to fix. Probably need to call and spend time waiting on hold to get this addressed by NVC.
  13. "But for my son(cspa) which is f24 i was able to pay aos fee but his name does not appear at applicant information but there's an option button "add applicant". " This statement does not make any sense. You should have two different case numbers for your son and daughter. The CEAC page for you son's case number should show him as applicant. If it does not, I do not know why and you have to call NVC.
  14. For 1st quote above: You need to wait 2-3 business days after successfully paying the AOS fee before the Immigration Fee can be paid. Then you wait another 2-3 business days after successfully paying the immigrant fee before you can click on the DS-260 application button. Do not call NVC for CSPA protection like in 2nd quote, I already have the NVC answer for this and posted this information in first post of this thread: AFTER you submit the DS-260 (because NVC cannot act until this happens), you make a "CSPA Protection Request" thru the AskNVC webpage: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/visa-information-resources/ask-nvc.html?wcmmode=disabled Make sure to give all relevant CSPA information (as you have already have done with your posts). Wait at least 5-10 business days for a AskNVC response email that your "Request" has been forwarded to the correct department. Then .... do not expect another email about visa class changed back to F22 ... just check CEAC online. This could take another 2-4 weeks. You will get a NVC email that schedules a US Embassy interview. Once visa class goes back to F22 and applicant is "current" (as they are), the interview scheduling happens within a month typically.
  15. You're very welcome. Working with the US Embassy in Manila is a very different experience as they seem to be more communicative. Being prepared with the pertinent information you found in this thread obviously helped. It is very nice to have family together. Very glad you are on your way to having your family together by following the rules.
