  1. Hi guys, My LPR husband will be eligible to apply for citizenship in February 2022. We want to apply as soon as possible, as citizenship has always been our final goal. However, his English is still pretty limited, and I'm starting to wonder about the interview/test. He has been studying the civics questions and he does pretty well with written English. He's still pretty limited when it comes to him speaking English though. I know the N-400 is taking around a year, so we will still have time, but I know it can go quicker depending on local office and our AOS was lightening fast. I guess what I'm wondering is, what have been your experiences with the English-speaking aspect of the interview? What level of proficiency is required? I don't want to wait longer than necessary, but I would hate to jump the gun and then have to start all over. Any experiences, tips, advice are much appreciated. ❤️

  3. The powers that be really need to stop forcing a dangerous, ineffective injection on the populace by means of outrageous human rights violations.
  4. Someone asked this question of Jen Psaki(🤮) at one of the press briefings and she said she wasn’t sure and she would find out and report back. I’ve been scouring all the press releases to try to find some official statement about it, but nothing yet. I will certainly update here when I do. I have seen a few places, including the US embassy in the Bahamas stating that LPRs won’t need to be vaccinated, but I’m waiting to hear it straight from the horse’s mouth.
  5. I can’t find any clarification if it will apply to LPRs or not. I know LPRs were not subject to the travel bans, but I have a sinking feeling about this. I guarantee it’s a trial run to require vax for anyone who flies—USCs included.

  7. Once I had all the pages prepared for the submission, I flipped the whole stack over and printed my husband’s name and A-number in light grey ink (so it didn’t show through) on the back of the pages, just in case a page were to slide out and fall on the floor or something, they would know whose file to return it to.
  8. Wonder how this will affect LPRs. https://apnews.com/article/lifestyle-health-travel-coronavirus-pandemic-a312ebaf72844c5b75246fb10b0f2ba7 US plans to require COVID-19 shots for foreign travelers WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration is taking the first steps toward requiring nearly all foreign visitors to the U.S. to be vaccinated for the coronavirus, a White House official said Wednesday. The requirement would come as part of the administration’s phased approach to easing travel restrictions for foreign citizens to the country. No timeline has yet been determined, as interagency working groups study how and when to safely move toward resuming normal travel. Eventually all foreign citizens entering the country, with some limited exceptions, are expected to need to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to enter the U.S. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity to preview the policy under development. The Biden administration has kept in place travel restrictions that have severely curtailed international trips to the U.S., citing the spread of the delta variant of the virus. Under the rules, non-U.S. residents who have been to China, the European Schengen area, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Brazil, South Africa and India in the prior 14 days are prohibited from entering the U.S. All travelers to the U.S., regardless of vaccination status, are required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within three days of air travel to the country. The Biden administration has faced pressure to lift some restrictions from affected allies, the air travel industry and families who have been kept separated from loved ones by the rules. Many have complained that the travel restrictions don’t reflect the current virus situation — particularly as caseloads in the U.S. are worse than in many of the prohibited nations. Airlines for America, a trade group for major U.S. airlines, said it was pleased by reports that the administration plans to make it easier for more foreign travelers to enter the country if they have been vaccinated. — AP writer David Koenig contributed.
  9. I was going to apply in January but I called to make an appointment and the earliest appointment wasn’t until March 23rd, and I wasn’t able to make that date. I will advise you, you have to make a separate appointment to have your fingerprints taken and there is an online system to make that appointment. They release a few dates at a time, usually every day at 12:00am Costa Rica time, so that’s the best time to check to get availability. I struggled for two weeks to get an appointment—I would input all the information, select an available appointment and submit, but it kept giving me an error message saying that the appointment wasn’t scheduled, without saying what the problem was. I finally figured out that even though the ‘Second Surname’ field was not marked as mandatory on the form, it wasn’t accepting the submission when I left it blank. I don’t have a second surname, but I finally tried just typing in ‘ninguno’ (none), and it accepted my submission that way. They didn’t say anything about it to me when I went to the appointment, so it seems to have worked okay. I’m about to start gathering the paperwork together again to try again at the end of the year.
  10. My husband received a varicella vaccine at his medical appointment because he didn’t have one on his vaccine record, and also a flu shot as it was in season. He was offered the option the get the shots there, or get them done later in the US and he elected to have them done there. I don’t remember what it cost, but I remember they weren’t exactly cheap. If he has a lot to get he might want to have them done at the CAJA before his appointment. Also he might be able to have a titer test done to prove he’s been vaccinated for some of them already. But if he has no proof of vaccination, he should be able to get the vaccines at his medical appointment.
  11. It wasn’t marked as LIN for whatever reason, but I marked it as LIN in the December 2020 sheet so now it appears in the LIN filers sheet. 👍
  12. All the data is pulled from the spreadsheets that have been established for each month, like the March 2021 spreadsheet that I linked in the original post. Spreadsheets for other months are linked at the bottom of the March 2021 spreadsheet.
  13. Hello folks, I have been closely following the I-751 spreadsheets to monitor activity at our service center, and in order to make it simpler to do so, I made a spreadsheet that compiles all the information from the existing spreadsheets for each month and organizes it by Service Center. I thought others may appreciate having this information, so here's the link to the spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/10bbIF3PDa36R8-yrFhHNDV1k32le-SPi1UzhewBFgiw/edit?usp=sharing The entries are sorted by NOA1 received date, and the different service centers can be located by clicking on the tabs at the bottom of the sheet. The sheets are not editable because the data is all imported from the other spreadsheets, so if you have data to add, it should be added to the original spreadsheets. (March 2021 sheet found here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1liNArfs3TXRtN7EW9iQXDHeV2z6-ROZ-CQPjLC9HQl4/edit#gid=0) Many thanks to the creators/moderators of those sheets, and all those who have contributed–they have been very helpful!
