  3. Hello, One of my son will be 21 years old in December 2022. When should I start worry about his age? Right now his case is at NVC. All of the necessary documents are submitted per June 22. Thank you and have a blessed Monday everyone!
  4. Hello, Just wondering what is the timeline for F2A now at NVC? I have been waiting for about a week now since I upload the necessary documents. Thank you!
  5. Hello! Did anyone get a visa appointment for their case in Beirut Lebanon? Our Visa Category is F2A and we were DQ'ed last June, I'm becoming impatient as this is taking us more so much time. What should we do? I contacted the embassy last month and they said they didn't receive our case and we should contact NVC, contacted NVC, NVC said the embassy didn't give them the date yet. So I contacted the embassy last week again to get an update. I'm worried if they simply forgot us? Is that even possible? Also we were wondering if there is anybody in the same category at US Consulate in Beirut who got their appointment scheduled? It's really frustrating that we have no idea where we are standing and they don't seem to care much. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you
  6. I have applied for my wife online and have already received the first NOA. Whenever I check the case status at USCIS, it says the case is being processed in the E-filed case processing section location but the NOA was sent from the California Service Center. Does this mean our case is being processed in the California Service Center or is that not the case? Also, does filing online make the processing times faster? Thanks in advance.
  7. Hi, my mother is petitioner for my sister greencard (F2A). The case is pending Embassy interview in few weeks. My mom spends quite some time in our country so she can take care of the younger sisters (she’s single). My question is, can my sisters enter the US alone and my mom join in few weeks( she want to ensure everything goes fine before she sells property and closes business back home). She already proved domicile in NVC stage. Thanks.
  8. Hi! Was able to get documentary qualified email last jan 2 from NVC for our F2A application. just wondering.. 1. How long will it take for us to receive the interview letter? 2. how long is the interview waiting/scheduling time at the US embassy in Manila? thanks!
  9. Hi, I have gained my Lawful Permanent Resident status in the US on April 2019, last year, on that time I was serving in the army under mandatory law for military service in my home country. I have been serving since November 2017 and until July 2020. I have already had flight tickets in my hands into the US that were planned for April 2020- so I shall not remain outside of the US for a period longer than 1 year. Unfortunately, Covid-19 pandemic has shown up and I could not have come to the US on times because the airline has cancelled my tickets. because of that, I have exceeded 1 year outside of US borders and now I need to apply for SB-1 Returning Resident visa in order to come back to the US. this upcoming process is exhausting and complicated in order to issue me a new immigrant visa and may hurt my naturalisation process. my green card was only issued last year and is valid until 2029, my question is if would you recommend for me to just take a flight now into the US and deal with the immigration officer at the port of entry or start this visa process with the embassy in my home country?
  10. Hi all I’ve been confused!! my husband received a mail from califonia service center 4 months ago, but when we check our case from “case status” on uscis website , it shows Nebraska..!!! Which one is correct?

  12. Hi Everyone, We are a married couple since past 2 years. My husband is a permanent resident US and I live in India. We applied for under Family preference F2A (F-21 visa class, to be very specific). I got DQ on Sept.1'20 and since then been waiting for an interview. Got a mail from NVC on 8th March regarding 120 days delay or whatever. Just wanted to know if anyone has gotten an interview from F2A category (spouse of permanent resident) since the mail or proclamation rescinded ?? I just wanted to get some clue regarding my work here as the wait and confusion is so very frustrating. please help.
  13. Hello, I have two questions here: My wife's parents (who are green card holders) want to petition their unmarried daughter (who is over 21) from China. How many years will this take? If my wife (who is a US citizen), petitions for her unmarried sister, how long will this take?
  14. Hello, I just got interview today. I get 221g which there is error translation in my birth certificate. They want me to upload the new one. But they didn’t keep my passport. Interview went well, only about birth certificate. Any idea how long will they decide my case? Or I could be denial since they didn’t keep my passport.
  15. Hi, My husband received a notification from NVC that he is now on queue for interview. In the bottom of the letter, they mentioned "Preference Category: E2" and the PD of my case. I immigrated with an EB-2 visa and submit an I-824 for him. I thought his preference category was F2A, so I'll assume he "inherited" my visa category. Now I'm wondering if that will affect his waiting time for interview. Do they pile the people based on their preference category or it is just first come first served?
  16. Hi, I am under F2A visa category waiting at NVC stage. My spouse will get naturalized in coming months. By the time my spouse becomes citizen the F2A ban would be over. In the current situation between F2A and IR1 which category has a better chance of getting consular interview faster? Are there any benefits of upgrade after NVC stage? My PD is September 2019 Thanks

    So I just casually check the status of my wife and kids visa status F2A, since I got curious if there were any changes, supposed to have interview on last March but got cancelled because of the lockdown. So low and behold, I saw a refused status... Am not sure if this was already in a different thread but can anyone shed me some light? Probably a technical glitch for those whose interview got cancelled?
  19. My Visa class is F2A, minor children with a green card holder... Documentarily Qualified since June 9, 2020, but interview letter and date is taking forever to get fixed by the NVC. How long am I going to wait for please? I am from Nigeria.

  22. Hi, my case is Filed under F2A in 2017 by my husband, now we are waiting for the interview, but I’ve got an amazing proposal from a very huge company in USA, should I accept it? And go there for temporary period? Would they accept my petition? Are work visas under ban? Please help me out.
  23. Hi, my interview is due, and I wrote my name on Facebook like “M” which indicates my first name, I didn’t write full name but just a letter” and then my husbands name (which isn’t on my documents yet. I wrote it rightfully on my forms aswell, and have no issue if they check it. But it could make some trouble for me? I’m worried :( please help!!
  24. 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!
  25. Hi all, After doing so much research but getting nowhere I have come across to visajourney for some help! I have a few questions hoping you guys can point me in the right direction. Here is our background. I'm a permanent citizen in the US and I filed for form I130 for my wife back in Early May this year, so far no updates. And my N400 application is due to complete in January 2020. I was wondering if my N400 goes through in January, and then I'll upgrade the petition, can my wife come and stay her 90 days then file for AOS ? She'll be arriving on ESTA. Many Thanks.
