  1. Yes, thank you for sharing this! My husband just received his IR-1 visa and I'm fearful of transiting through Europe to get to the US even though it says we'd be exempt from the ban. Glad it worked for you!
  2. Yes, this is the first time I’ve checked it. I just read your separate post about it and now you’ve got me feeling nervous for our visa.
  3. I just checked and mine says "Administrative Processing."
  4. They didn’t give him an approval paper. The only gave him a booklet that explains his rights as a legal permanent resident and told him to pick up his passport once he receives an email telling him it’s ready.
  5. Hi all, I wanted to share our experience today for the IR-1 Visa interview in Tbilisi, Georgia. First of all, the interview letter requested that I attend the interview along with our 1 year old son. I have been living with my husband in Georgia since we were married, so attending the interview with him was no problem. His appointment was at 11:30am and we arrived at 11am. The embassy guards asked us to fill out a COVID-19 questionnaire regarding any symptoms or recent travel. After we filled out the form, they informed us that only my husband was to enter the embassy and if they needed me they would call me in. So, I waited outside with our son. My husband entered the embassy and they told him to take a seat. After a couple of minutes, they called his name and requested the following documents: passport, birth certificate, relationship evidence (our sons birth certificate), military record, police certificate, and passport photos. They wanted all original documents. Next, he sat for 10 minutes until he was called to the window. He had to swear by oath that he would answer truthfully to the following questions: - When did you meet your spouse? - Have you ever been apart from your spouse for an extended period of time? - Why are you both living in Georgia? - When was your son born? - Where are you planning to live in the US? - What does your mother-in-law do for work? (we are planning to live with her initially, so that's why they asked about her) - What's your goal when you get to the US? The consular approved the visa and told my husband to expect the visa in 3-4 business days. He gave my husband the option to arrange with a courier or to pick up his passport when it was ready. And that's it! My husband also mentioned that there were only 2 other people in the waiting room and everything was very sanitary with employees taking the necessary safety precautions due to COVID-19.
  6. Yes, at the bottom of the email it gives me the date and time of the appointment. It also requests that I attend the interview with my husband, along with our son (already a US citizen).
  7. It was scheduled through the NVC. The emails says “The National Visa Center completed its processing of your immigrant visa application and forwarded it to the US Embassy/Consulate General, where an immigrant visa interview has been scheduled.”
  8. Their website doesn’t say anything about their specific operations. Just the generic Covid statement about limited services being available. I didn’t contact the Embassy. Based on other posts, I figured I wouldn’t gain any new information by doing so. I was checking my emails and ceac website daily.
  9. Hi all! Just received an interview date for July 29 from the Tbilisi embassy! Just an update for my fellow Georgian applicants (I documentarily qualified on June 17, so it took one week to receive my interview date.)
  10. It's super unpredictable! We spoke with a lawyer in January and he gave us the impression that this would take a minimum of 18 months. So, we were pretty open to waiting until next year for any of this to start happening. I hope you hear something soon!
  11. Just wanted to share how quickly this process has gone for me. I submitted I-130 March 28, 2020 then was approved by USCIS on April 30, 2020. Once in the NVC stage, I submitted all docs/fees May 29, 2020. I received RFE on June 15, 2020 and just received notice today that we are DQ! So, less than 3 months!?? This is just insanely fast. Now we are waiting to hear about the interview date. I'm feeling very lucky and wish you all speedy processing!
  12. I received an RFE yesterday requesting my 2018 and 2019 tax returns. I haven't worked for the past 3 years, so I submitted a statement of why I wasn't required to file for those years. I was slightly annoyed to receive this RFE because I submitted that statement in the same PDF file as my 2017 tax return information. I guess they wanted the statement submitted as a separate PDF file from the 2017 tax return. Anyway, does anyone know if this is a one and done kind of ordeal? Meaning, they have already reviewed all my other submitted documents and this is the only discrepancy they have found? Or do they stop reviewing all other documents the minute they find something wrong? Just don't know if I should expect another RFE aside from the one they requested yesterday...
