Hi all, My wife and I are concerned about her cousin’s F11 immigrant visa and he still remains in Kazakhstan. Due to Covid-19, he cannot use his visa to see his mother and the expiration date is May 13th. Does anyone know if there is a way to renew the F11 visa or any word from Immigration about waiving any expired visas or such?
My interview experience: Length: About 20 minutes. My Lawyer had already arrived early. My petitioner (USC Mother) and I arrived about 45 minutes before interview time. I wore my signature suit and Tie. I was called on time. My lawyer instructed that my mom stays in the waiting room. IO checked my ID. I took the Oath. From the start, IO said he was a little confused because my 2001 ETA 750 Labor Certification said EWI which was clearly an error from my then attorney. My lawyer explained to the IO that I entered on a B2 Visa. IO asked for proof and I showed him my original I-94 to satisfy that requirement and this was the only document he asked for. (Entry type would not have mattered since I was grandfathered into the 245i benefit which means EWI’s are also covered). We also had the Visa # stamp as well on my mother’s expired passport. IO then asked us to bring my father in because for some reason he thought my father was the sponsor (he is deceased). He only asked my mother her full name. IO seemed fairly new so we had to clear some stuff up. My lawyer actually did all the educating part to the IO. IO was wondering why I was using 245i if I had legal entry so my lawyer told him that I Overstayed my Visa and it was necessary for me to adjust under 245i if I wanted to do the AOS. IO asked my full name, current address and DOB. We had to correct the birth year on I-485 because it was a typographical error from USCIS. IO asked random few questions they were YES/NO and I got them all correct. He then asked for updated I-693 which I submitted to him. He then went off to check off the pages and did work on his computer. He gave me the standard white sheet which stated: ‘Your Case is being held for review’. IO said this was the normal process for everyone to run background checks. I think he had to get approval final from his supervisor. My lawyer who has 20 years of experience partially congratulated my mother and I and thought interview went well and was confident. Next morning, I woke up to ‘New Card is being produced’ which should be the 10 years and I should be eligible for Citizenship in 4 years and 9 months.
My dad and I were about to register at https://cgifederal.secure.force.com/ for the delivery of our visa after our interview on July 19. My dad is the unmarried son of a US citizen and I am only his derivative. Our problem is that we don't know if we both have to register. We first tried to register his passport. At the first step, we chose my dad's visa category which is f11 (son/daughter of US citizen). Then at step 2, we filled up the form with his passport number, bday and the mailing address. Third step, we uploaded the scanned copy of his passport. Lastly, we clicked the submit button. Next, we tried to register mine but we were not sure if I should click F11 or F12 (child of F11). So we decided to choose f12 because I am his son. After entering my passport informations and mailing address, we were shocked because I was given the step 6 which is the "add dependents". Why did I get the step 6 if I am only his derivative? My dad must be the one to have that step 6. We tried to contact the US Embassy in Manila but all their phone numbers have only recorded voices. Pls give me more information regarding to our situation. Thank you!
