  1. Hello everyone, So glad that P.P. 10014 has been lifted! I’m an immigrant visa applicant for F2B or visa class F24 and will be assigned to have an interview at the U.S. Consulate General in Montreal, Canada. My priority date is Jun. 16, 2015 and D.Q. on Aug. 28, 2020. Could anyone advise what’s the estimated wait time for an interview letter from the Montreal Consulate? Also is there anyone will be having interviews in Montreal, Canada? Any input is appreciated.
  2. Greetings, I had immigrant visa interview (Category: F2B, DQ: Aug. 28, 2020, PD: Jun. 16, 2015) in Montreal on Jul. 22 morning. The CO asked me a lot of questions and the actual interview lasted about 10mins. After interview was done, he retained my PCCs & passport and I was given a white paper (221g marking - additional processing is required). All docs were good, he didn't need anything from me and medical result arrived couple days before my interview. He also said I should hear back from him within one week, which is today. So far, I still haven't any update in CEAC which still shows "Refused". I have U.S. B1/B2 visa and had frequent U.S. entries and exits; I'm holding Canadian PR in Canada; I also google my name & used name, it turned out both came back with something related to rocket & electronic technologies. Could anyone elaborate should it be a problem? What's the process of being 221(g)? Any experience? Any input is highly appreciated!! Thank you in advance.
  3. As at today, March 30, 2022, the JM US embassy is reviewing DQ cases from the NVC and as far as I saw, from June and July 2020 for F Categories. Have you received your interview letter? Interview time frame from IL receipt is 2-6 weeks. Don’t forget to check your spam or junk. Seeing too many instances of people missing interview letters because the email went elsewhere. Lol check under mattress if you must but please check! 😅😂
  4. We are in the process of filing the I-130 for our daughter and grandson. We understand USCIS is expediting cases for Ukrainians. Does any one have experience or information on whether this also true for applications filed since the war started? Thanx - Kineo #standwithukraine
  5. Greetings to all the fellow members. My apologies in advance for all the verbiage. My mom won the DV22 lottery and is currently in the process of moving to the US. She is 52 years of age. I myself am more than 21 years old and hence, won't be able to join her. We both live in Russia. And so we are currently planning to take the F2B route once she steps on the US soil. Lately, I've been rigorously examining the process. There is but one aspect that seems most thorny in our case. That is the aspect of financial sufficiency of the principle immigrant (i.e. the sponsored person). So I'll turn to my questions then: 1) You see, given how lengthy the whole process is, it is quite likely that she won't be able to meet the minimum income requirement. Thus, I'm planning to gradually over the coming years transfer my cash savings from my bank account to her bank account in the US. The amount will definitely be substantially more than enough to cover for the lack of income and then some. And by the time she has to file the I864, she'll be able to supplement her income with ample savings that would have already been sitting on her bank account for a couple of years. But there is one thing that concerns me. Wouldn't the CO somehow find it suspicious that a woman of her age with such humble income was somehow capable of amassing such a sum? If so, could she just tell them that these are our family savings? Finally, would this require any documentary substantiation? 2) Second, I am a licensed dentist in my country and have all the necessary credentials to prove that. Given all the hardships, including financial, that one has to persevere through in order to become a certified dentist in the US, would this somehow negatively impact the CO's judgement? After all, I'll have to pay circa 200 0000 to 300 000 dollars for the whole licensing process with no ability to work as a dentist in the interim. Thanks in advance.
  6. Hello everyone, I’m just preparing my docs for IV interview in advance and haven’t received IL as of today. I’m F2B and my mum is the petitioner. Just wondering, do I need my mum’s original birth certificate for my IV interview? Thanks in advance.
  7. I have a problem with my immigration visa at US embassy at Warsaw. After uscis and nvc aproved my visa in f2a category and scheduled interview in may 2021 in Poland consul said that im in wrong category because im aged out. Consul said that I have to wait for group f2b. My priority date is 18 November 2016 and now visa buletin stop and is huge backlog. I just came to Poland just for 2 weeks and now I'm here almost 10 months. I wanna ask you that you heard about case like mine? How is possible that uscis and nvc used filling dates (chart B) of visa buletin and scheduled my interview in category f2a and us consul at embassy change my category to f2b. They said that they have inside law and now they use final action chart. I know that is on uscis page that we have to calculate CSPA by chart A but uscis and nvc used chart b. DOB: 23 SEPTEMBER 1996 PRIORITY DATE: 18 NOVEMBER 2016 I-130 APROVED: 28 FEBRUARY 2018 Do you heard anything like that? Do you have any idea how I can deal with that?

    Expedite Request

    Hello guys, does anyone know the duration of time it takes the US embassy Montreal to respond to an expedite request my status is F2B I’m done with the submission of all my documents majority has been accepted just one needs to be reviewed thank you
  9. Hi, Just had a question. Can someone travel to the US (using their unexpired visitors visa) when a F2B petition has been filed? A little background: My brothers priority dates became current last June and all the required documents (DS 260, civil documents, affidavit) was submitted to NVC in middle of November. I saw that they’re currently reviewing October 2021 petitions. In the meantime would it be wise or would it affect their case if they travel to the US on their visitors visa? Appreciate any advice. Thanks
  10. I just got informed that I am DQ'd (Feb 19, 2021) for an F2B Visa and they informed me that I am now in queue for the interview. My priority date is July 2, 2015. How long will it be until I get an interview appointment at the Montreal Consulate?
  11. Hello everyone, My question is this my uncle applied for his daughter and grandchildren to come from Haiti in 2012. They were approved in 2013. This past May he sent the DS-260 and paid all the fees. They are waiting for an interview. Unfortunately, August of this year my uncle passed away and what my family wants to know is the process going to continue or is it over??? All they were waiting for was an interview. Would their need to be a new sponsor or what can we do?? My cousin and her children are the only ones left in Haiti and would more beneficial for her to come her and work…..We are still waiting on the death certificate from the state of Florida. It takes awhile due to him passing away at home. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated😊😊😊
  12. I am on H1B visa and getting married next year. My fiancee's parents applied her F2B visa. Her I-130 petition got approved last week. Details: Priority Date: March 6, 2011 I-130 Petition approval date: Sep 9, 2013 California Service Center My question is how long will the total process take now to get visa. Visa bulletin says that they are reviewing F2B cases for 15 FEB 2006 now. I have two options: first to wait and second to cancel this F2B visa process and apply for H4 for her after getting married. Please suggest on the time it takes after I-130 petition approval. Thanks
  13. Hello everybody, I have been documentarily qualified since January this year, my Priority date is Jan 5th 2016. Right now the visa bulletin board shows that the PD is still at July 2015. Is there any hope for me to get an interview appointment this year. I am not sure I can wait till next year for personal reasons.

  16. Hi Guys.. I just want to share my case update sent by NVC.. see below in bold letters. This notice is to inform you that your case for an immigrant visa is documentarily complete at the National Visa Center (NVC) and has been for at least 60 days. The next communication you receive from NVC will be either a notice that your appointment is scheduled, or if an appointment is not scheduled within the next 120 days, we will send a notice confirming that your case is still in line for an interview. Now my Question are; does anyone here who got the same letter and got interviewed within 120 days? And after 120 days? (Please note I got DQ’d Oct 2020 and NVC sent the letter last March 08) Especially now that the US Embassy in the Philippines visa interviews for all other immigrant visa categories remain suspended as of march 2021 Visa Update 😢 Thanks so much..
