  1. Visa Update: Consular Operations (Visas) as of June 2021 Visa Update: Consular Operations (Visas) as of June 2021 Routine visa services remain suspended because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The U.S. Embassy in the Philippines continues to operate with reduced staffing. As conditions surrounding the COVID-19 situation improve, the Embassy will add additional services, culminating eventually in a complete resumption of routine visa services. The Embassy cannot predict when the resumption of full visa services, or a specific category of visa classes, will occur. Immigrant Visa (IV): The Embassy continues to have a significant backlog of all categories of immigrant visas. We are using a tiered approach to triage immigrant visa applications, based on the category of immigrant visa, as we resume and expand processing. While we are scheduling limited appointments within all four priority tiers every month, the following lists the main categories of immigrant visas in priority order: Tier One: Immediate relative intercountry adoption visas, age-out cases (cases where the applicant will soon no longer qualify due to their age), and certain Special Immigrant Visas (SQ and SI for Afghan and Iraqi nationals working with the U.S. government). Tier Two: Immediate relative visas; fiancé(e) visas; and returning resident visas. Tier Three: Family preference immigrant visas and SE Special Immigrant Visas for certain employees of the U.S. government abroad. Tier Four: All other immigrant visas, including employment preference and diversity visas. Nonimmigrant Visa (NIV): The Embassy continues to prioritize travelers with travel needs, foreign diplomats, and certain mission-critical categories of travelers, such as those coming to assist with the U.S. response to the pandemic, followed by students and exchange visitors (F-1, M-1, and J-1) and temporary employment visas (H-1B, H-2B, and L nonimmigrants). Visa appointments and processing for B1/B2 (Business/Tourist) remain suspended, with the exception of interview waiver renewals. We understand that many visa applicants have paid the visa application processing fee and are still waiting to schedule a visa appointment. The Embassy will extend the validity of your payment (known as the MRV fee) until September 30, 2022, to allow all applicants who were unable to schedule a visa appointment as a result of the suspension of routine consular operations an opportunity to schedule and/or attend a visa appointment with the already paid fee. NIV Expedite Appointment Requests: Expedite requests for emergency travel may be submitted via our website at http://cdn.ustraveldocs.com/ph/ph-niv-visaapply.asp. Please note that the applicant will need to book a regular appointment through our appointment system before requesting an expedited appointment through http://cdn.ustraveldocs.com/ph/ph-niv-expeditedappointment.asp. NIV Interview Waiver: The interview waiver program has been extended. Information is available at https://ph.usembassy.gov/visas/visa-updates/. Visa Scheduling: After we resume visa processing, which will be confirmed on our website at https://ph.usembassy.gov/visas/visa-updates, applicants can reschedule the first available visa interview appointment slot by phone at (+632) 7792-8988 or (+632) 8548-8223, or through our online appointment system at http://cdn.ustraveldocs.com/ph/. There is no fee to change an appointment. After routine visa processing resumes, if you have difficulties rescheduling a pending consular appointment, applicants may send an email to supportphilippines@ustraveldocs.com for specific guidance. Contact Us: Scheduling, case status, passport delivery, and other questions can be directed to support-philippines@ustraveldocs.com.

  2. Hello, My maternal uncle applied for my parents and his other sister. Their cases are now with NVC. We're arranging necessary documents at this moment. Currently my uncle who's the petitioner is unemployed. Though he has some decent funds in his account but doesn't have a job/monthly pay stubs. He is looking for a joint sponsor with whom he can jointly co-sponsor for my parents. Can someone guide me about what documents are required and if any prerequisites are needed to become a joint sponsor? Thanks in advance Regards
  3. Hi guys! I would like to ask for your advice. My family recently got our welcome letter thru email since the last March 2021 visa bulletin - dates for filing, our PD got included. PD: Jan 23,2003 Approval date: Aug 25,2009 My concern is that me and my 2 brothers are already in our early twenties and we're just completing the documents and paying for the necessary fees. I would like to know if we're still qualified for the immigration with my parents under CSPA? here are our birthdates: ME: 07/16/1995 - 25 Bro1: 07/10/1994 - 26 Eldest" 04/17/1997 -23 thank you very much!
  4. Hello, I've finished the interview on 9/10/19, they asked for additional sponsorship and kept our passports. We've submitted the required documents in October 2019. It's now over one year without an answer. Every time we email them, they say they are still processing. Any advice for this? Thank you!
  5. I am a U.S. citizen bringing my sister and her family (F4 Visa). The DS-260 asks for the civil documents. The issue is I submitted the DS-260 according to the passport. My sister's Bangladeshi passport has our father's name on it. The father's name is missing two initials. So it's supposed to be: "S.M. first name, last name." But the passport is missing the "S.M" part. However, on both of our birth certificates and her National ID has the "S.M" is there. On the marriage certificate, the "S.M" is not there. Therefore, on the DS-260 online application (which I submitted), I forgot to add the "S.M" since I was filing it out based on the passport, which do not have these intials. Our father passed away when I was an infant, so I made this silly mistake. What should I do? I cannot change the passport, since I already submitted the passport's ID # and expiry date on the DS 260. What should I do? Will this be an issue, even though the 2nd given name and last name is the same?

  7. Good Day everyone! I just want to share some updates from our immigration process. This might give ideas to other applicants as well. Priority Date - June 2, 2000; became current on visa bulletin last May 1, 2020 February 28, 2020 - Received an email from NVC (Notice of Immigrant Visa Case Creation) *Started working on DS-260 and completing the required documents* April 27, 2020 - Completed and submitted the DS-260 September 11, 2020 - Received an email from NVC again telling us to resubmit our police clearance (We submitted police certificates only, they were asking for NBI clearance). September 11, 2020 - Same day, we uploaded the correct documents they were asking for. December 8, 2020 - Received an email from NVC again (Notice regarding your Immigrant Visa Case becoming Documentarily Qualified) 🤍 It has been 10 long months of waiting to be documentarily qualified. I was also overthinking for the first few months because of aging out (I turned 21 last July 2020). I posted here a topic about me being aged out. I would like to thank those people who replied to my topic. You gave me clarity about how CSPA works. Regarding the topic of me being aged out, I'd also like to share that the petitioner emailed NVC about it and they replied this: "Dear Sir/Madam: We reviewed your petition and we determined that the applicant appears to be eligible for the Child Status Protection Act (CSPA) benefit. Please note that our determination is not final. A consular officer makes the final determination at the applicant's interview." As of now, we are waiting for the schedule of our interview. I hope we receive an interview appointment early next year and be accepted by the consular officer considering my case. *crossed fingers* We are praying that the immigration ban won't be extended anymore. Praying for the best! This post is kinda long but I hope you somehow had an idea about f4 immigration process. Any comments/opinions will be much appreciated! Keep safe! ❤️❤️❤️
  8. Priority Date: March 28, 2005 Approval Date: April 17, 2009 Current Visa Bulletin: January 22, 2005 DOB: April 20, 1997 Category: F4 Location: India Hi, I am a derivative applicant, whereas my father is the principal applicant. My biological age is 23. However, I calculated my CSPA age using an online calculator and it turns out to be 19 years. I would like to know if I am surely covered under CSPA. I have read a couple of articles where the CSPA applicant is not approved of the visa. What action can I take prior to the date becoming current to stay covered under CSPA? Why do some people get rejections even if staying covered under CSPA? Thank you!
  9. Hello dear members, Hope you are doing well. My uncle filed a petition type I-130 for his sister (my mother) on July 23, 2007 and received a form I-797 (Notice of Action) with receipt date: July 30, 2007 , Priority date: 23 July 2007 and Notice date: November 27, 2009. It stated that the above petition has been approved. The priority date became Current in March 2020 Visa Bulletin. My Date of Birth is 27/02/1989. I am unmarried. Please help me get my CSPA age the most appropriate way. My age at the time of petition was: 18 Years 4 Months 26 Days. My age at the time my uncle received Notice of action was: 20 Years 9 Months 0 Days. My age on the first day of Visa Bulletin March 2020 when the priority date became current was: 31 Years 0 Months 03 Days. My name is not there in the applicant information on CEAC Website. My Mother, My Father and My Younger Sister are mentioned there. I want to ask: What in the next step. Please tell me if I can immigrate with my parents. It would be great if you tell me the bottomline. Thank you.
  10. Hi guys, My uncle has been sponsored to the U.S. under an F4 visa as an additional applicant of the case's principal applicant. He paid for his green card on 25th October, 2019; until now, it has been over 04 months, but besides a receipt of his payment, no further information in regard to his card is available to him. As he could not speak English, I have been looking for a way of contacting USCIS so as to ask about the delay of his case. And, I found a website that allows me to send e-requests regarding Non-delivery of card (you can take a look here: https://egov.uscis.gov/e-request/displayNDCForm.do?entryPoint=init&sroPageType=ndc). On the page, in the case information section, there is a list of forms (or form numbers) which must be selected for further processing. My question is according to my uncle's case, which form I am supposed to choose to ask for his card's status. And, besides the page mentioned above, is there any other way of contacting USCIS for such request? I hope to receive support from the forum's members and anyone who has ever faced this problem before. Thank you, Please forgive me for any mistake regarding post policies found herein.
