  1. I made a group for those who are pending interview in Montreal Consulate for F2A visa category. My case has been Documentarily qualified/case completed April 4th, 2019.
  2. 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
  3. Hi all, I sponsored my wife in HK for the immigration visa and timeline is as below. As you can see below, the visa class is changed to IR1 when I became a US citizen and I want to know it will help to speed up her interview date at the U.S. consulate in HK. Also, if anyone knows similar case with us, please share with information. USCIS receipt date for I-130: May 24, 2020 NVC receipt date: December 20, 2020 NVC documentarily complete date: April 08, 2021 Visa class changed from F21 to IR1: May 31, 2022 No interview date scheduled yet Much appreciated and good luck for other fellows waiting for immigration visas. Cheers!
  4. Due to Backlog, How will will it take to get interview Date in US Embassy Kathmandu for F22 visa class? If the DQ is on july 17 2022 (guessed) ?
  5. Hello guys! I was wondering if at nvc & us embassies, IR cases and F2A are the same for the priority in getting an interview or IR1/2 have more priority? and if yes, how much faster is it? I’m asking because I’ve found a lot of ir cases getting interviews in my country (knowing that they have the same dq date as me) where mine (f2a) didn’t receive it yet! Thank you!
  6. Our F2A petition was dq'd in July 2020 and the petition was upgraded to IR1 in May 2021. My question is, how is our petition going to be placed in the IR1 queue at NVC? Are they still going to use the dq date or the date that the petition was upgraded to IR1?
  7. Hi My brother has green card he got married in Pakistan Applied for spouse immigration 1/21 got Receipt only no approval yet Anyone has similar situation? Priority date? Approval date? Interview date? Any info appreciated TIA
  8. Hi, I am a PR based in Austin, Texas. I recently got married to an Indian Citizen. We filed the I-130 and now we’re waiting. Until recently, I thought it would be easy to bring my husband to USA since I’ve seen many friends and family who have H1B visa bring their spouse in a very short time frame (few weeks to few months). I always thought it made sense that USCIS processes spouse based visas quickly - why would anyone keep a married couple apart!! I assumed Permanent Residents would have the same sort of timeline to bring their spouses to USA, or even quicker since PR > H1B. Boy was I wrong. I can’t believe I’m looking at a 2-3 year timeline before I can bring my husband to USA. Now, how am I supposed to navigate this situation? 1. My husband does not have ANY USA visa to even VISIT me - and now that his I130 is being processed, there is no way he’s getting a visitor visa. 2. I need to keep working/living in usa so as to not lose my green card. What does USCIS expect me to do?! Stay in usa for 3 years and visit my husband once in a while until his green card comes through? That seems inhumane even for USCIS’s standards. And especially as a permanent resident I don’t expect to have to deal with these timelines. Am I missing something? Someone please help me understand what’s going on because the last thing I want is to be stuck in a long distance relationship for 3 years.
  9. Has any one recently gotten an interview appointment under f2a or fx visa In ethiopia , if so what was your dq date. It would help alot please
  10. My current case is F2A. My mum filed for my sibling and his case was DQ March 2021. We requested for expedition which was approved and sent to ghana embassy around Nov 1, 2021. The case has been in ready status since then. Does anyone know when we can expect an interview letter? Ive tried contacting the embassy but can't get hold of anyone who can provide any useful info
  11. PD: 04-03-2018 NVC Approved: 05/12/2021 F2A - Green Card holder mother applied for Underaged Son (Under 21) I am getting email from NVC every 2 months that case still is waiting for the interview. Still waiting for interview (Dhaka, Bangladesh Embassy) Could you guys share your experiences on your immigration journey? in that way I can get some information that how long it might take?
  12. What is the typical timeline for F2a after USCIS approval? The child was approved at 20 yr 5 mon in Mar 2022, I am not sure but it seems like the F2a processing is current. The petition is now at NVC. The "ceac" website allows me to pay for DS-260 only, not for Affidavit. It shows this message: Due to the numerical limitations on immigrant visa issuance prescribed by law, this petition is not eligible for further processing at this time. The National Visa Center (NVC) will retain the petition until an immigrant visa becomes available. The NVC will notify the petitioner, principal applicant, or attorney of record when this petition is eligible for further processing. The principal applicant should not make any firm plans such as disposing of property, giving up jobs, or making travel arrangements at this time. What does this mean? How do I proceed? How do I make sure she does not age out?
  13. Hello did anyone get any interview letter for F21 category in Abu Dhabi? Since COVID PANDEMIC?
  14. Hello guys! My case is f2a, pd march 2021 and been dq august 2021. Still haven’t received an interview. I’ve turned 21 last month. Should i be worried of aging out?
  15. Hi! Could you share your PD and approval dates if you get it? Than you
  16. Is it possible to expedite the petition for my sister (F4) due to situation in Ukraine (impending war)? She's still at the USCIS stage, I applied in 2020. My father will be able to come into the country and apply for her soon, would that be an option? What about for my parent (IR-5), who's at the NVC currently? Also, is it possible to switch the interview to another country when we were auto-assigned to Kyiv for IR-5? What is the best way to go about it to get them out of the country and safe? Really appreciate your advice!!
  17. People who are waiting for interview date after Document Qualified notification and Priority Date Current as per visa bulletin.
  18. I am an Applicant F21(Colombo) visa category , received 2 DQ emails , one in January 2020 & second in March 2020. I havent recived IL yet from Colombo US embassy. I have met some F21 applicants from Colombo received DQ emails for April ,Octomber 2020 DQ & December 2020 (Normal process) And they were interviewed or received IL . It seems that Colombo US embassy hasnt got much back logs. I noticed there is a glitch or error in NVC system for DQ March 2020. I also met 2 Sri Lankan Petitioners (F21-LPR) who got DQ in March 2020, and they never received IL until updated cases to IR1. They will have their interviews next week. What should I do ? My spouse will get USC in 10 -12 months. Please advise me . Thank you very much.
  19. Hello, in hopes of getting some answers. Case currently at the embassy with Interview date and documentary qualified. 1). I am the household sponsor.(brother) Mom and i live at the same house. 2).Mother applying for sister. No tax history only provided letter explaining that she has no tax filing. 3). We recently moved states due to job. Do we need to update in DS 260 or my sister can update it during the interview? 4). It seems like there is a new opening for I-864 EZ and W-2 on my mothers (petitioners) page (is it common before interview?), do we need to update that with my recent tax or can my sister provide my recent most recent tax and paystubs? (More income than previous). Would be very helpful and thank you in advance
  20. Hi, What is the latest update on F2A visas from Mumbai NVC? Cases of which documentarily qualified date are getting ILs? Mine DQ is Feb-2020.
  21. Can you please share your Documentary Qualified (DQ) and Interview appointment date for F2A visa at US Embassy, Addis Ababa? My DQ date is July 2020 & still didn’t get interview date. I am receiving 60 day notices. I don’t know what DQ date NVC is scheduling appointments right now & estimated Interview date for my case. I am hoping to guess based on your experience. Thanks
  22. Hi, did anyone join one of Curtis Morrison’s lawsuits before. And was it successful? He’s filing for another lawsuit which only focuses on F2a category. I wanna join but still having second thoughts of it. Please let me know if you have information or ideas. Thank you.
  23. Hello, I was wondering if some one can give some information on whether it will be of any advantage of changing my Petition to CR1 instead of F2A or just leave it like that since F2A is still current?
  24. My spouse's i130 was approved she in the USA. We selected adjustment of status while filing the i130. Now we are changing to consular processing since her f1 visa is over and we did not file adjustment of status in time. Can anyone tell me the consular processing time would be for our case? Will take too long to send the case to NVC by filing i824?
  25. Hey guys. So a few about 4 days ago my wife petitioned for me online (i130 F2A). We've been married close to 3 years though, she lives in Massachusetts where I have been visiting her using my tourist visa. However, we knew from what's generally posted online that ALL cases coming from Massachusetts are handled by the Vermont Service center. When my wife called uscis yesterday she was told our case is being processed by Nebraska. Is this something that's common or should we expect that the case will eventually be moved to Vermont since we are from Massachusetts?
