  1. Hello everyone, My husband’s case is currently at NVC; however, our four month old baby has been diagnosed with droopy eyelids and needs surgery to lift his eyelids to prevent further vision issues. Will I be able to request for my husband’s case to be expedited so that he can be present for our baby’s surgery? Thanks for your assistance! 🙏🏽
  2. Submitted my son's paperwork to NVC back in August last year. I got a RFE note in Nov about a marriage certificate that was already submitted prior. Which I resubmitted. Again in Feb I received another RFE about my income which again is enough. On the website it said accepted on both but no DQ email. I call NVC and the rep told me all was looking good and forwarded my case to supervisor. Told to wait 6 weeks. It's been 7 weeks now still no response. Now NVC phone line is suspended. Anyone that had to wait for a case at supervisor desk and how long of a wait ?
  3. Hi all - apologies for the hyperbole, but it’s a bit of an emergency. I know the idea is that IR1 visa holders have to come to the US with or after the USC spouse. However, my wife and I are currently in transit and she has missed her flight (we’re travelling separately). This means I will arrive in the US before her. Can I still go through immigration etc pending her arrival? Sorry for the urgency but I’m actually sat in an airport right now, not knowing what to do. This is a bit of nightmare. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Hello, I did apply for my parent's visa IR-5 in July, 2019. Case was transferred to NVC after all the required documents were correct. I did submit all necessary documents to NVC and paid their fees. Cases were delayed because of the pandemic. Both of my parent's cases were document qualified on November, 2020. Now everything is open in Mumbai and still didn't hear anything about the interview. Tried to email and call many times but never got an answer. I found out that I am expecting and my due is February, 2022. I last saw them in 2017. They are old and having very hard time emotionally without me in this pandemic and situation that they cannot come here. I am the only child of theirs. I cannot even go to see them as I am pregnant and having difficulties managing house and job and appointments. Can I request NVC to expedite these cases because of these reasons? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  5. I'm petitioning for my husband to come live with me in the USA. His interview was in April. They kept his passport and our original marriage certificate and his birth certificate. But they did not accept the translations that were submitted to the NVC because they weren't from Sri Lanka. We had translations we got in 2019 in Sri Lanka luckily, since they kept our documents so we couldn't get new ones, and turned those in. Our status has been "refused" since May 11, 2021. In a past email response to me asking about our case they said the updated documents were being reviewed by the consulate officer and that he would contact the applicant asap. Aug 23, 2021 my husband received this email to his inquiry Considering we've had our interview already, we followed their instructions, and as far as we knew we were in administrative processing can anyone understand what this means? Do you think the embassy sent us this response by mistake? Or is our case actually at the NVC again and he will need to be interviewed again? They still have his passport and our original documents. I'm baffled, stressed, and honestly feel nauseated after getting this email. Covid there is getting bad, I'm scared for my husband. Thank you anyone for your insights. I have sent them an email asking for clarification. Waiting on their response.
  6. Hi, guys! I'm petitioning for both of my parents. My dad's petition is ahead and we already uploaded all the necessary docs to NVC. Trying to see what would be our next steps after submitting the civil documents to NVC. Has anyone had an experience with immigrant visas in Ukraine recently? How long is the wait to schedule the interview? What kind of questions should my father expect during the interview? Would they want him to have some job lined up or the proof of insurance or anything along those lines? In his affidavit I had to use his assets entirely, as my returns from last year barely show any income. I also recently got divorced. Is there any concerns with that?
