  1. How can i find my local postmaster? I have put my address but it gave me like 20 results 😂😂 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ No. 1 should be your post office. To make sure ask your mail carrier or a neighbour.
  2. India is under lock down til April 14. So it is closed definitely for next three weeks.
  3. It’s possible to visit your spouse in the United States while your application is pending. In order to do so, you would need to apply for a tourist visa. But before pursuing this option, it’s important to understand the challenges and risks involved. First, you would need to convince an immigration officer that you plan to stay only for a short time and would leave the United States before your tourist visa expired. If you don’t have any immediate plans to live permanently in the United States, it’s best to be clear about that in your tourist visa application. You might also want to prove that: 1. You have employment or educational commitments in your home country that prevent you from moving permanently to the United States at the present moment. 2. You have a confirmed travel plan with a clear date of return to your home country. But there’s another hurdle to overcome after that: When you arrive in the United States, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent will inspect, or question, you at the airport. You’ll be asked to explain why you’re visiting. The CBP agent would then decide — at their discretion — whether to let you enter. You must never misrepresent your reason for visiting the United States, either on an immigration form or before an immigration officer or a CBP agent. You also must never lie about being married to a U.S. citizen or green card holder.
  4. If a green card holder leaves the United States and wishes to return, the person's trip must be for a temporary visit, not because that person's "real" home is elsewhere. Making your home in another country can lead to the conclusion that you have "abandoned" your U.S. residence. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers have the power to decide whether returning green card holders are living outside the United States. If they believe you are, to take steps to have your green card revoked. If you stay outside the U.S. for more than one year and do not get a reentry permit before leaving, then in order to come back again, you must apply at a U.S. consulate abroad for a special immigrant visa as a returning resident. To get this visa, you will have to convince the consular officer that your absence from the U.S. has been temporary and you never planned to abandon your U.S. residence. You will have to show evidence that you were kept away longer than one year due to unforeseen circumstances. Such evidence might be a letter from a doctor showing that you or a family member had a medical problem. If you do not have a very good reason for failing to return within one year, there is a strong chance you will lose your green card.
  5. If a green card holder (lawful permanent or conditional resident) leaves the United States and wishes to return, the person's trip must be for a temporary visit, not because that person's "real" home is elsewhere. Making your home in another country can lead to the conclusion that you have "abandoned" (given up) your U.S. residence. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers have the power to decide whether returning green card holders are living outside the United States. If they believe you are, to take steps to have your green card revoked (cancelled).
  6. Posted Thursday at 04:39 PM Please check the embassy websire the latest update says all are closed updated 4 hours ago im really confused ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread around the world, the U.S. Government has suspended visa services and canceled related non-emergency immigrant and nonimmigrant visa interview appointments at U.S. Embassies and Consulates around the world. U.S. Embassy & Consulates in Pakistan Information for visa applicants regarding novel coronavirus: As of 17 March, the United States Embassy and Consulates in Pakistan are cancelling routine immigrant and nonimmigrant visa appointments. Your visa appointment stands as cancelled. We will resume routine visa services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date at this time. The MRV fee is valid and may be used for a visa application in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment. If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, please follow the guidance provided at our GSS site to request an emergency appointment. Due to the suspension of IV services, Embassy Pakistan recommends that IV applicants consider postponing visits to a panel physician site to complete a medical exam. Medical exam results are valid for a maximum of six months.
  7. If you had applied for a green card in the past based on your marriage to a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, and that application was denied, it will be important to review the reasons for the denial before filing a new marriage-based green card application.
  8. I just talk to some one who landed yesterday at Atlanta airport and he told me that normal waiting time was between 15 to 45 minutes. Keep your fingers crossed and hope for the best.
  9. "she’s afraid she won’t be able to go back to the EU because of the current ban or that she will accrue unlawful presence days in the US. " As a citizen of Poland she can go back to Poland or as an resident of Eu to Republic of Ireland. Both countries will let her enter. It is her choice.
  10. The 2 hour layover is not sufficient to get this accomplished before he gets on the next flight. If it is his lucky day then may be otherwise 2 hours are not enough. Good luck.
  11. To qualify for a visitor visa, you must establish that you do not have an “immigrant intent,” the intent to remain the U.S. permanently. This is a basic component of most temporary U.S. visas. The U.S. government wants to know that you will return before your visa expires. Unfortunately, the form I-130, filed on your husbands behalf, signals that he intend to live permanently in the U.S. at some point in the future. Consequently, people with pending immigrant petitions run into more scrutiny when applying for a temporary visitor visa.
  12. Administrative processing is a black hole and it may take longer than 180 days. Follows up to check on the status of administrative processing once a month with consulate. As of March 2020, the State Department has updated CEAC so that while administrative processing is pending the status will show as “Refused.”
  13. As of March 2020, the State Department has updated CEAC so that while administrative processing is pending the status will show as “Refused.” It further explains that if you are subject to administrative processing “your case will remain refused will undergoing such processing.” Administrative processing is a black hole and it may take longer than 180 days. Follows up to check on the status of administrative processing after 30 days. During AP i know you have to wait little longer but If you think your case is genuine in the end you will get the Visa. Do not worry too much. Best of luck!
