    why decades? My grandma is a us citizen... Once my uncle gets his green card, he has to wait 5 years to become us citizen right?

    Yes but it will take him many years to get his green card. You can look at the Visa Bulletin (mentioned in the article above) to see the possible wait time for him, if he's not married then look at category F1 (currently processing applications received in 2014), if he's married then it's category F3 (processing applications received in 2008). https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/legal/visa-law0/visa-bulletin/2023/visa-bulletin-for-april-2023.html


    So best case scenario, if he's unmarried and applies now then his priority date may become current in around 2033 (as a very rough guide - could be longer as the Covid backlog is expected to lengthen that time), so citizenship in 2038/2039. His sons then have the same wait for a visa, so another 10-20 years after that.

    My grandma is petitioning my uncle.... who is her child.... my uncle has two kids over 21.... I just wanted to know if once my grandma submits the petition can they be added as my uncle children over 21

    As above, no. They'd need to wait until their father became a citizen and then he can petition for them. So waiting for decades, they should look at other options.

    Is your Uncle a US citizen? If so, he can petition for them, it's a heck of a long wait though (longer for the one that's married) so they might want to explore work visas to see if there is any quicker way over for them.
