  1. Hi, anybody in the same boat? Here goes my story: My husband and I applied for a tourist visa last May 2019 and was denied, marked 214b. We were called in for another interview on June 25, 2019 just to retract the misrepresentation made more than 10 years ago. One was 2001 where we were denied entry to the United States. Second was using a passport with different name to apply for a U.S tourist visa. I can’t remember the date anymore. On the second interview, we were asked to retract and write everything that we did in the united states in the past, i.e working, salary, the false passport, back dating of the arrival in the Philippines, apologized and sworn before a U.S officer. Thus, our visa petition was approved June 2020. We have an upcoming interview, i was just wondering if we are still inadmissible and still needs i-601, though we timely retracted the false claims on our interview last june 25? Anyone has similar experiences?

When can we expect to get Interview letter? From last night other people from Bangladesh are getting IL.

I want advice about submitting an expedite for the below reasons, what is the methodology : 1-Grand daughter of the petitioner already passed 21 years in Jan 2019, she is now 21 years and 10 months, the petitioner can apply for CPSA as the petition I 130 was submitted in December 2008 and approved inMay 2010 (i.e one and half years after submission) which means we ca not apply for CPSA after 7 months from now. 2-The spouse of the petitioner is also an american citizen, old age and is now having breast cancer & last year got stroke, we have the medical report from the hospital. I want clear advice on the methodology and steps we should do to apply for the expedite for our F3 visa

  9. Hey there! My F3 visa interview is conducted on 25th july 2019 and CO gave us a 221g form and asked for a joint sponser while we already have given one but she asked anyway. She didn't marked new joint sponser on 221g just joint sponser. The joint sponser which we already have given has income more than enough for 4 members.

  11. Have you had or heard of a case in which the processing time for an F3 I-130 to be FILED AND APPROVED IN UNDER 2 MONTHS ? That seems to be the case in our petition. The petition was filed on August 1996 (priority date) and was already at the NVC by October 1996 based on the NVC case number (MNL1996XXXXX). Could the process really be that quick? Asking this in regards to my CSPA eligibility. I need some significant amount of time to cut off from my age to qualify. Thanks
  12. My brother is waiting for immigration on an F3 visa, which has priority date of December 2007. Recently the second date has become current. (The date where you start filing), but the first one is still 6 months away. He already has a valid B2 visa. He has visited US once for 4 weeks. Can he come the US now on B2 and file for change of status from B2 to F3? Is it possible to get a Green card or an EAD with AP?
  13. Hello i just want to ask, is there any chance where in you can file an appeal if your kid if he is overage by the the interview takes place? 😔😔 The case was affected when the retrogression happen 2010, but still his visa was paid in feb 2011, when he was still 16, but due to the retrogression the process took longer than expected, we tried the CSPA, but as per consular calculation he was denied, for he is already 24 now. I am hoping if we can file an appeal, and hopefully get a better result, and be able to bring my son with me. 🙏🙏🙏 Thanks for your suggestion and help
