  1. Hi there my cr1 interview is in about two weeks. But right now I am confused about the additional documents that I can include in files for the interview day. I have collected all the documents according to the usual guidelines. But since it’s an expedite case on medical case I have included the doctors reference letters and expedite email approval in my files. If anyone can suggest what other documents can I include in my file would be really helpful. Also if I should follow any sequence for documents while arranging my file for the interview day. thanks in advance
  2. Hi, my documentation got approved in sept 2020, I am still waiting for interview date to get fixed. Can anyone tell me what would be the delay and how long it would take. also is anyone’s appointment has happened( when did the documentation get approved by NVC?) second question- can I apply for a V visa, I got married in dec 2018, petition was filled in June 2019.
  3. Hi there, my wife filed an petition for me last march. We received the NOTICE OF ACTION (Form I-797C) in march, which stated that they received the form and its processing. Later on within a week we received another letter which stated some login credentials for USCIS account and told us to activate the USCIS account. As required, we activated the account. Now I would like to know what's the next step? Its been a couple of months and still we didn't received any update. Please note the priority date is 17th March 2021 and the petitioner is a US citizen and visa type is CR1.
  4. Hi there, On march 2021 my wife (U.S. Citizen) filed an I-130 for me. According to the USCIS account they received the documents of the application on March 17th 2021. After that the only update I received on the end of August is that they are reviewing the documents received. Can anyone tell how much more time would they need to update the next step? Even though its already been more than 5 months!
  5. Hello, Does anyone know what to if you are a TCN(Third country national) with a Turkish Permanent residents card! My husband lives in Iraq but he has a Turkish residents card. I know the US Embassy of Ankara in turkey are only doing limited services for Turkish citizens and nationals! Do I just need to email the embassy with the front/back of the Turkish permits card or does anyone know how the process works ?
  6. Hey everyone, Thought I would do a quick review of my experience with Dr. Lyndon Mascarenhas for the US immigration medical, as reading about other people’s experiences on here was really helpful to me. I received an email on October 15th saying my interview date had been scheduled for November 18th. That same day I emailed Dr. Lyndon Mascarenhas office and Dr. Ian Zatzman. I received a response back from both offices within a few hours. Dr. Lyndon’s office said they could fit me in October 21st at 2:15 pm, so I ended up finalizing an appointment with them. (Earliest appt available with Dr. Zatzman was Nov 5th). The actual medical was a breeze and super quick. Office was easy to find. I arrived around 1:30 pm and was asked to fill out some paperwork. I then provided one passport photo, my vaccine checklist and interview letter to the receptionist and was asked to take a seat. Around 2:00pm I was called into the room and was asked to fill out a questionnaire (had a bunch of yes or no health related questions on there). About 10 minutes later, Dr. Lyndon came in. He was super nice and friendly. Asked if I was healthy overall, to which I responded yes. He checked my blood pressure and asked about my profession. Whole thing took less than 5 minutes. He then handed me a blood sample test tube and urine sample bottle and some paperwork. Instructed me to go to the basement level for an X Ray and then LifeLabs around the corner for blood work/urine sample. I paid my fees (350 + 50 for courier + 1 for using a debit card = $401) with the receptionist and proceeded downstairs for the x-ray. I was in and out in 10-15 minutes as there wasn’t much of a wait. Then headed over to LifeLabs. It was quite busy at the time and I had to wait about 30 minutes. Not too bad. The actual sample collection took a few minutes. All in all, I finished everything by 3:15 pm. I received an email from the receptionist today that my results have been mailed out, with tracking info. It should arrive tomorrow. So I waited a total of 6-7 business days for my results to be processed and sent out. Overall, the process was much easier than expected. I’d highly recommend Dr. Lyndon Mascarenhas, his office was professional and seems to be well run.
  7. 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!
  8. Hi we're going to apply an n600 for my daughter who got here in the US through an IR-2 visa, qualifying for the derivative and automatic acquisition of the US citizenship. During the process of this can my daughter travel outside of the country to study there? Would she be able to come back with no hassle?
  9. Hi, Just wanted to know if the USCIS send any letter after receiving petition and if it does, then how long does it take ? Thanks in advance.
  10. Last month President Biden revoked the presidential proclamation invoked by former President Trump, regarding a freeze on issuing green cards (10014 and 10052). These proclamations were related to non-family based immigrant visas. However, the US consulates have yet to resume stamping out these visas. Anyone have any idea, what is the timeline. Biden revoked the proclamation https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/presidential-actions/2021/02/24/a-proclamation-on-revoking-proclamation-10014/ Thank you
  11. Hi there, I and my family is applicants of F4 family visa category. We received DQ email in October 2020. Recently I've logged in CEAC and noticed that my name has been removed from the applicants list while the other three family member including principal applicant remained unchanged. I thought this might be because my age is no eligible to move to USA in a F4 visa category. Therefore my question is DOES NVC REMOVE APPLICANT EVEN AFTER DQ DUE TO THE REASON I'VE STATED ABOVE? Thanks in advance.
  12. Hi everyone I would be pleased if someone could answer my below question as I am eagerly waiting to know what is going on and if anyone else is also in the same boat. My self and my daughter went for the CR1 and CR2 interview last year 2020 jan and march respecrively at the U.S embassy consulate in Colombo Sri lanka. However, up until now we have not received any updated information of our visa status from the embassy. when checking the case status, it says refused and the long paragraph. Emails are not being responded after last year September. My self and my husband emailed but still no answer. However recently they re-opened the DS-260 applicatio but we do not know which information to add since it says documentary qualified. Can please someone let me know what i should do as the next step.

  14. Hello All, I am a USC, and I filed i-130 for my immigrant spouse February 6, 2020. I received my NOA1 a few days later. My receipt number had IOE written on it, but on the bottom left corner it said Potomac. I have not yet received my NOA2 or no other updates at all. Is there anyone else who is going through this same situation? Any advice on making this "wait" easier...

  17. Hi I moved/entered the US as an LPR when I was 17, a month before 18 but I still got my green card. We failed to get my passport immediately because my dad lost his naturalization cert. so we're waiting for 5-8 months to get another one and be able to apply for the passport again. I'm currently 18 and looking to open a bank and I don't know what to put under the "Citizenship" in the forms so help me out?
  18. I'm taking 2019 Tax Return to the Interview instead Tax Transcript because IRS Is still Processing it since March. Would 2019 Tax Return alone be ok?
  19. Hi I moved/entered the US as an LPR when I was 17, a month before I turned 18 so still qualified under INA 320. But, we failed to get my passport immediately because my dad lost his naturalization cert. so we're waiting for 5-8 months to get another one and be able to apply for the passport again. I'm currently 18 and looking to open a bank account and I don't know what to put under the "Citizenship" in the forms, US or Philippines?
  20. Hi I'm an 18 year old admitted in the US when I was 17 as a legal permanent resident (IR2 visa) allowing me to acquire my citizenship through my dad's naturalization. We were supposed to apply for my passport but my dad lost his naturalization certificate so we're in the process of applying for a new one to apply again. I'm currently waiting for my green card and I was just wondering if its possible to go outside of the US when they're processing my US passport and they can just mail it to me in the Philippines for me to gain entry to the US again or what are my other options to be able to study in the PH?

  22. Hi so my dad is filing for an application for n565 or the replacement of certificate of naturalization. He got married after naturalizing so his status on the certificate was still single. When applying for a new one do we put single or married on it? Is the processing gonna take longer because of it?
  23. Hi I just got here in the US 3 weeks ago through my IR-2 visa with an annotation "“UPON ENDORSEMENT SERVES AS TEMPORARY I-551 EVIDENCING PERMANENT RESIDENCE FOR 1 YEAR.”. I'm 17 years old turning 18 in a couple of days and my dad was naturalized when I was 15 y/o. We were supposed to apply for a passport but my dad lost his naturalization certificate so we're still gonna have to wait 5-8 months to get it. I just have a couple of questions: 1.) What is my status here in the United States? 2.) Do I need to apply for a green card? 3.) Did I already become a citizen when I got here? 4.) Am I still going to be eligible to apply for a passport even after I turn 18?
