  2. Hi VJ friends, I am helping my brother in process of his CR-1. I have some questions regarding DS 260. Does he have to submit any documents with his DS-260 or I864 (other than IRS paperwork)? He is submitting his documents from Islamabad Pakistan embassy approximate how much time would it take to get interview date after submission of DS 260 and I864? Does his wife who is permanent resident (Petitioner) has to go with him for interview? Thanks in advance
  3. After years of working on this my husband finally got his interview date in Ciudad Juarez. His lawyer doesn't have any appts available but he said at the beginning he would help us figure out the steps to do before the interview. I have gone online to try and do everything for him but it is asking for a number from DS-260 confirmation. We don't have any documents that say this. Is this it? They also keep asking for a phone number but it won't accept our US cell phone number. He leaves on March 1st. And I just can't find any help on the website. Scan_0001.pdf
  4. Me with along my family was interviewed at US Embassy Islamabad on 18MAY,2018.. After that we were given 221g as my father was in Police Service .. We submitted additional information and our case went to AP again... Now Embassy emailed and asked for following things : have recently reviewed your immigrant visa case. To move forward, please provide us with the following for all the applicants: • Updated form DS-260, submitted online via https://ceac.state.gov/iv/, with an email to our office including the barcode number from the completed form. • Updated medical examination report from an Embassy-approved panel physician. • Two visa photos – meeting the criteria defined at http://www.ustraveldocs.com/pk/pk-niv-photoinfo.asp Any one in Same Situation Before or is in same situation . Kindly Let me know please !!
  5. I had my 2nd interview (re-oath) in April 2019 after which I was given the DS-5535 after. Been in AP since... I just received an email from the consulate asking me to get new medical & police certificates (both expired from Nov 2018) and to also send passport, pictures & 'updated DS-260 online application form' in order 'to continue my processing my case'. I hear the DS-260 has been updated since? I cant access the form on CEAC or AIS. How do I update it? Can anyone assist? When I asked my lawyer about the form he said the embassy is asking me to 'file another DS-260 with supporting documents' and he is asking me to pay him $1500 !! All I need to add is my new passport details and information of our new born. I haven't traveled since the interview. I imagine there wouldn't be that much new information requested in the updated form that was not covered in the DS-5535 hence we could file it ourselves? My form was last updated for the re-oath around November 2018. Would appreciate any help/suggestions on this please. Hoping its a good sign that they are asking for these things...
  6. Hi all! My husband is finishing his 2-year home requirement at the end of January (basically 1 month from now). We have already got the I-130 form approved, and would like to submit the DS-260 form as soon as possible. Does anyone know if submitting this form before the home requirement has ended will result on his application being put on hold (there is a question on this form indicating whether the 2yr home requirement has been completed, with an option for explanation below)? We would be careful not to schedule the interview before the home requirement has finished, but we are under a tight timeline and would like to start the processing as soon as possible. Any experience/knowledge would be appreciated!
  7. Finally got to the point where we can pay the AoS and IV fees and I have a few questions... Joint Sponsors If using multiple joint-sponsors for the I-864 and the first one meets the 125% poverty rate, would they use both joint-sponsors, would they just drop the secondary sponsor, or would they possibly make me resubmit my I-864 and another I-864A with a single sponsor? AoS Filing Fee I've read that filing the I-864 in the applicants country would be free, but how can that be if I must pay the fee before I can move on to the next step which is submitting documents to the NVC? Do they mean if both the applicant and petitioner are out of country at the time, that can be the case? (That's not the case though: I'm in the US and my wife is another country) I'm assuming I (the petitioner) just pay the fee, and my wife pays the IV fee. Document Cover Sheet The financial documents section only pertains to the petitioner, so where is the section for the joint-sponsors documents? Should I just check "Enclosed" on "Other Documents" at the bottom and make extra cover sheets that list each item in section 2, for each set of financial documents? Also, would it be OK to have each set of joint sponsors documents in a separate envelope within the main package? (the two parties probably don't want their financial info shared with one another) Applicant Moving My wife (applicant) is moving somewhere else in her country within a week, would it be wise to wait until after she moves, to continue filling out the DS-260 and then collecting her supporting documents? ...and if I remember correctly I don't think I need to contact the USCIS and let them know that the applicant is moving, since we are past that stage and the case was approved, i.e.,That was just for if I was moving during the I-130 approval process, and we're dealing with the NVC only now, correct?
  8. My husband had his IR1 immigrant visa interview at the US Embassy in Algeria on July 17, 2019 and they told him Congratulations your visa is approved. The next day I checked the Visa status on the Ceac.state.gov website and the status changed from Ready to Administrative Processing. Today I logged on to the same site and it said this. Summary Information One or more Immigrant Visa (IV) Application(s) (form DS-260) on your case have been reopened because updates are required. Please update the DS-260(s) as directed and re-submit the form(s). If you have any questions, please contact your local U.S. Embassy or Consulate General. Information for U.S. Embassies and Consulates can be found at https://www.usembassy.gov/. And the DS-260 is Re Opened but we don't know exactly what on the DS-260 that needs to be updated. the embassy didn't send us an email with directions on what to update. Has anyone ever heard of this?
  9. Hi everyone! I’m a Green Card holder and my husband and I got married 2 years ago. He is brazilian and we are going through his immigration petition, which already was approved by USCIS and by now we are waiting for NVC mail with the next step (DS-260 form and the financial/affidavit of support form). In this step, we will have to provide a copy of his Biographic Data Page of his valid Passport. My question is: when we got married, one of my husband's last name changed its position (i.e.: Antony Santoro Silva turned into Antony Silva Santoro). Just like that. Will he have to issue in Brazil a new passport, with his new name (married name)? If he does so, he will have to change his current US Visa, which has his maiden name (he gonna receive a new Visa with his married name anyway when his immigration petition gets done). And that seems to be a lot of work and time as he will have to issue a new Visa, Green Card, SS, Driver License with his married name anyway when his immigration petition gets done. In a nutshell: Is it ok to file the DS-260 with his married name but still having his brazilian passport and US Visa with his maiden name? Thank you so much in advance, for your time!
  10. Hello, I have been contacted by the NVC in which they notify me that my petition has been forwarded to my nearest Embassy. They mention that it will take a "few" weeks for the petition to arrive at the embassy and that they will contact us. 1) I have completed form DS-160 nonimmigrant form, received a confirmation number. 2) I have also created an account on the embassy's website and decided to apply for a nonimmigrant visa. As I was filling in the information required, there was an option where it required to select a *Visa Class*. As I was looking through all the option available, I was not able to find a K-1 visa type. On the following website: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/family-immigration/nonimmigrant-visa-for-a-fiance-k-1.html You, the foreign-citizen fiancé(e), (and eligible children applying for K-2 visas) will be required to bring the following forms and documents to the visa interview: Completed Form DS-160, Online Nonimmigrant Visa Application. You (and any eligible children applying for K-2 visas) must: (1) complete Form DS-160 and (2) print the DS-160 confirmation page to bring to your interview. It clearly states to complete form DS-160(nonimmigrant), which I have already done so. On this link: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/visa-information-resources/all-visa-categories.html The Nonimmigrant Visa Categories section states the following: K nonimmigrant visas – For U.S. citizen fiancé(e) and spouse for immigration related purposes. Refer to Immigrant Visa Categories. The Immigrant Visa Category states the following: Important Notes: *K Visas – Listed with immigrant visas because they are for immigration related purposes. Now I go to my embasssy's website and go through the nonimmgrant visa and cannot find information related to my K1 visa class. The next step I take is to go to the Inmmigrant visa type section and find the following link: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/the-immigrant-visa-process/collect-and-submit-forms-and-documents-to-the-nvc/step-3-submit-visa-application-form.html According to the link it says that I would need to apply for the visa using the form DS-260. My question would be, should delete/deactivate the previous form(DS-160) I completed and fill out a new form (DS-260)? I understand I may need to wait in order for the NVC to contact me whenever they have receive the information required for us to schedule an interview and perhaps that letter will provide information regarding whether I should apply for the nonimmgrant vs immigrant visa type. Is anyone currently going through the same process? Any information is highly appreciated. Thank You.
  11. Hello helpful community! I'm about half-way through the CR1 visa application process at the US Embassy in Paris for my husband, who is French (I'm a US citizen). Everything was pretty clear and going smoothly until now, we're completely lost as to what the next step is. Did anyone file recently at this consulate, and if so, when/where/how did you submit your I-184, financial and civil docs after submitting the DS-260?? To recap our situation: Oct 17: We submitted our I-130 petition in person at the US Embassy (we had previously gotten approved for filing directly due to exceptional circumstance) Oct 31: We received an email from the embassy saying the petition had been approved and instructing us to: ""Complete you DS-260, gather the full documentation, and register your appointment." Nov 25: We submitted the DS-260 online via the CEAC portal. Unless we missed something major, there was NOT a tab for uploading the I-184, financial documents, nor civil documents. We received the Confirmation email that the DS-260 had been submitted. This email said we had to submit the financial and civil documents for the NVC to review and directed us to this website. Option one (CEAC) doesn't seem possible, do we EMAIL or MAIL the documents in to the NVC? Our case number does not begin with the letters they put as the ones that should be emailed in. Here's a bit of the letter: On the CEAC tracker, though, our status is marked as "Ready" and says to wait for appointment notification: So, are we supposed to: A) Do nothing just wait? B) Email documents to NVCelectronic@state.gov C) Mail them to National Visa Center Attn: DR31 Rochester Ave. Suite 100 Portsmouth, NH 03801-2914 D) Something else???? Anyone who has been through this process recently and can tell us what steps they had to take would be most appreciated! Thank you!!!
