  1. @payxibka- I went and reread the original post - you are absolutely right! Our cases were in 2 different stages - thank you for your inputs!
  2. First of all, I am truly sorry for your loss. I am in the exact same situation as you, lost my dad and eagerly waiting for my mother to join me in the US. I called the NVC and they asked me to submit a query to the address - asknvc@state.gov Here is the sample draft I attached so they could close my dad's case leaving my mom's file untouched. I was notified that the case has been closed. The other comments are absolutely right as well, since these cases are mutually exclusive, it won't affect your mother's file. But I just wanted to submit the paperwork and close the file. Dear Sir/Madam, Please allow me to introduce myself! My name is XXXXXX, I am the US citizen who has petitioned for my parents' IR5 visa. I filed their applications in August, 2019 and the applications have completed NVC processing with a Documentarily Qualified date of Sept, 2020. My parents were just waiting to be scheduled for an interview at the Mumbai Consulate in India. However, I was informed about my father's untimely demise on XXXXX. I am attaching his death certificate for your reference. Please update the NVC records accordingly. Sincerely, Petitioner
  3. I am very sorry for your loss. I lost my father as well and I can only imagine what you must have went through. My father's application was at the NVC stage so I emailed the State department (asknvc@ state.gov) with his case details and they were able to update the records. In your case, you will have to email the Islamabad consulate as recommended by @luckycat
  4. I believe they can submit this to any of the VAC centers. However, since the option is not available, it seems you are restricted to Mumbai. I believe there is a number you can call for the VAC and confirm. By the way, can you please include their Priority date and DQ date? It would help some of us gauge the expected duration for an interview. Thank you!
  5. Mumbai is one of the most backlogged consulates currently. I filed for my parents in Aug, 2019 and they have a DQ date of Sept, 2020. Still waiting for an interview...
  6. Hello Ashika, Congratulations! What consulate are you working with?
  7. Hello Rachel, Would you mind sharing your reason for expedite? I apologize if it is too personal. Thank you!
  8. Shaily, IR5 Priority date for my parents is Aug 19, 2019. Documentarily Qualified (DQ) date for my parents is Sept 15, 2020. My mother was able to come to the US on an existing B2 visa for 5.5 months. No issues at the POE which was Newark, NJ. Hope this helps!
  9. @ Sparkle Sparkle - Yes she was allowed in, hardly any questions asked! It's been a month since she has been here. Key was to fly directly to the US - She flew to New Jersey directly from Bombay. Let me know if you have any other questions, would love to help!
  10. Thank you all! I am planning on booking her flight through Dubai (Emirates). They are offering flights to DFW. I didn't see any mention of UAE on the proclamation and as @James120383 mentioned, it would be a non-EU country Any thoughts on this route? She'd have a transit in Dubai and a direct flight from Dubai to DFW.
  11. Thank you so much for all your inputs. So what would be the best transit option for her? I'd appreciate the recommendations.
  12. Hey suralias, was your mother successfully able to enter the US on a B1/B2 visa? If so, can you let me know what route did she fly? I am inquiring because I want my mother to visit us as well and needing to know what country should she transit through. Thank you!
  13. Hello everyone, I needed some insights on this particular scenario. I am a US citizen and my mother, currently residing in India, has a valid 10 year B1/B2 visa. She also has an approved I-130, we are waiting for an interview which won't be until early next year. In the mean while, I know she can visit us as long as we are transparent about the current I-130 application approval and "convince" the CBP official that she will be headed back in a couple of months. My question is how can she fly in from India? I understand the Presidential Proclamation has cited multiple Schengen countries that she can't transit through. Can she fly through London? Bombay -> London -> Dallas? I am looking for the best options for her to fly in. Any relevant inputs would be appreciated!
