  1. FANTASTIC news!!! Thank you for all of your help. Now I know who to reach out to in case I have any questions.
  2. Thank you for your sound advice! I have planned this for over a year now, and have contacted the California Board of Pharmacy to get proper guidance. Otherwise, if I knew there was NO possible way, my decision would have been easy peasy. It is possible, BUT she will have to: 1) Attend an International Post-Baccalaureate PharmD program (there is one in Florida and one in California) 2) Take a series of exams (FPGEE, TOEFL, FPGEC, NAPLEX 3) Do "x" amount of Internship hours 4) Take the Pharmacy Law Test In the end, it is a long and hard journey. It will take 4-5+ years, but I am very patient and want to see my wife succeed. After all...."happy wife, happy life", right?
  3. Ahh! Thank you! Your time period was shorter than ours, but it is good to see someone who did something similar without any issues! One more thing, I am sorry to be a nuisance... but by "travel document" do you mean a Re-entry permit? Or is there another travel document we can get?
  4. Thank you very much! This was very helpful and calmed my nerves down. Does the CBP give the "endorsement stamp" upon our arrival? Or will we have to go to the local USCIC office to attain this?
  5. Hello, once again, VJ Family! I will begin by stating our case history/ facts below: Visa Type: CR-1 Medical completed: Feb 19th, 2019 First Interview: March 4th, 2019 Second Interview: July 17th, 2019 Visa Result: Approved on July 17th, 2019 By gazing at the timeline above, you can see that my wife's visa is only valid until August 18th, 2019 (or 6 months after she completes her medical exam.) Since her visa is only valid until August 18th, my wife and I are flying to the US the first week of August During this duration of 7 months, my wife will travel back and forth from India to the US multiple times I will also go and visit her once (or twice) during this time period My wife and I are stuck in a bit of a sticky situation and I need your guys' help: Currently, my wife is a Pharmacy student, in India, and she has ~7 months of studies left to get her Bachelor's Degree If my wife decides to come to America, for good, right now and foregoes her Indian education, she will only be considered a High School graduate. My wife's dream is to complete her studies and obtain her Pharmacy degree I will try my best to help her achieve her dream. But I do not want to face any troubles with immigration. I figured I have managed to be away from her this long, I can be patient for the next 7 months. My wife's college is trying to assist us in this situation They will give about around 2 weeks off this next month AND around 3 weeks off in November Her college has provided a letter, for immigration, detailing my wife's exam dates and expected graduation date (April 2020) In regards to the issue at hand, I have a few questions: 1) I am wondering, will this create a problem in the eyes of CBP (Customs and Border Protection)? 2) What is the best solution -- Should we visit the local USCIS and get a Re-entry Permit? Or do you think we will be fine without the permit? 3) My wife's Green card might not arrive on time, before she heads back to India mid-August, will this cause an issue? I am freaking out because I have had a rough journey, so far. I do not want to prolong our process, any further. I do not want to get on the CBP Agent /US Immigration's wrong side and have this affect us during our interview ~2 years down the road. I understand my wife must spend more time in the US than overseas during this ~2 year conditional period. Please help me out, VJ Family!!
  6. Hi SahM, Were you given any reason(s) on your 221G letter? In reality, there is no "normal" wait time for AP. AP can be a few hours, days, months, or even years. The timing goes on a case-by-case basis. The only advice I can provide is just be patient! I had to wait 4 months for my case to be complete. Others cases I have read about have taken a few weeks to a few months. If you get past the 60 (business) days mark, I would suggest contacting your local congressperson/senator. I did not use this option, but there are many threads on VJ that can help you out. @Greenbaum, is also very knowledgeable and can be helpful on general questions. Also, keep in mind, Mumbai Embassy is a very busy Embassy. They have to conduct new interviews everyday, and then eventually they will get to the previous cases. Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions. I hope your process goes by quickly and painlessly.
  7. Thank you!! Yes, 4 months in AP felt like FOREVER! In regards to the sheet color, they had given us a white 221G paper in March.
  8. Yes! It may mean someone is looking at your case. Hang in there! Be patient, my friend. Updates are usually a good sign. You make get a series of updates and status changes before a decision is made. How many days have you been in AP for?
  9. Good news, VJ Family: We had our re-interview yesterday, and we were APPROVED!
  10. Wow! That totally sucks. This uncertain feeling is killing me. Because, I do not know what to expect! Are there any red flags in your case? Age difference? Religion? Etc..
  11. I am not sure if it is common or not, or even if it is allowed. I wish someone is able to answer that question for us. I was just wondering if you were planning to be at your wife’s side or not.
  12. I’m sorry to hear that! I, too, wish that I knew what was going on. Have been in AP since March and NO updates. Still being positive.
