  1. S' vremena na vreme VisaJourney odradi "ciscenje servera" i zatvori velike teme. S' obzirom da nama treba prostor za stare i nove clanove, evo ovde mozemo da nastavimo sa pricom i savetima o procesu dobijanja viza za USA. Na linku ispod mozete naci stari topic koji je zatvoren za komentare ali je pun dobrih saveta. Dobrodosli <3
  2. Hi everyone, I started this topic to help everyone waiting for her/his physical green card after she/he arrived to the United States So I hope everyone share his OS155A status and post the time between his date of entry, the immigrant fee date, the date you received the physical card in mail. Wish you all the best My status: Poe: Newark May 5 2016 Paid : April 20 2016 USCIS status: payment received on 4/20/2016
  3. I’ve read it before that CR1/2yr or IR1/10 yr GC is based on the date of US entry and not the date of visa issuance. I would like to ask here to make sure this is correct. Marriage - March 18, 2018. If our visa is issued today Nov 20, 2019, it will be valid until May of 2020. Second wedding anniv will be in less than four months. With the length of ROC processing time, my husband and I are thinking to enter POE March 20, 2020 which is two days after our second wedding anniv. Is this safe? Will I be questioned at POE (probably Toronto Pearson) for delaying my entry? Is two days after second wedding anniversary enough or shld we make it at least 5 days after? Thank you so much everyone!
  4. Hi everyone, We have our scheduled interview date from NVC (December 5th 2019) 😁, and when we registered on the CGIFederal portal we requested "Premium Delivery" for return of the passport, rather than collection from CITIC bank (this option can be changed at any time prior to the interview). My wife lives in Shanghai so we will be travelling to Guangzhou together. Question: For those of you who didn't encounter any issues like AP or RFEs during or following the interview process (ever the optimist), which option did you select and how long did it take until the passport was in your hands following the interview? (We are trying to figure out which would be faster.) Thanks everyone. We are so close we can taste it. 🙏
  5. Greetings from the Philippines. IR1 here. I have been documentarily qualified and preparing documents for my upcoming visa interview at the US EMBASSY Manila. I found out that I had a few corrections to make on my DS260 but since I already submitted it, there's no way I can edit it. I would like to ask fellow spouse visa applicants especially who just had their immigrant visa interview at the US Embassy in Manila, if is there anywhere at the Embassy I can have my DS260 corrected? Is it during the prescreening or before the prescreening? Many thanks for those who will answer. God bless us all.
  6. Hello everyone, I submitted our paperwork (AOS and IV packet) Thursday. I just now realized I should have been using total income instead of adjusted gross income since I filed 1040 (2018) and 1040A (2017 and 2016). The adjusted gross income is less than total income, but still well above the 125% poverty guideline requirement. Will this stupid mistake result in an RFE or checklist? Is there any way to delete the submitted I-864 and resubmit it with the correct numbers there to avoid the checklist or RFE if they should happen to issue one? Thanks in advance
  7. Hi! My wife is in the us and she applied for me in September 2017 through California service center. When she applied she had green card. She is now citizen since July 2019. We informed NVC about citizenship and they approved our documents with mail subject "Immigrant Visa Case becoming Documentarily Qualified" in August end 2019. When will I expect interview? If anyone know please reply.
  8. It being late October, and no October filers for 2018 found on the site, so I started this one. I am a USC living in Brazil and petitioning for my Brazilian wife of 30 years. It's complicated, but the basics are that I am are applying for a resident visa for my wife for the second time, the first being granted in 1989 after our marriage in Texas in 1988. We lost the visa in 2014 in part because of my ignorance of immigration rules and because of family medical situations in Brazil that prevented my wife from traveling. In 1989 the procedure was very simple. Today it's become 10x more complicated due to 9/11. Since we both live outside the USA we are using a state-side lawyer to be sure all paperwork is as correct as possible. Turns out I would have submitted my I-130 in March, but due to using a lawyer, it was only submitted in October. I hope that at least it goes through without a hitch. On one hand she already has a SSN and it was necessary to include her old Resident Visa ID# on the application. Don't know if this will delay or speed up the process. Based on Oct 2017 filers, we might be looking at a long year ahead of us. 10/05/2018 I-130 sent 10/08/2018 I-130 received Chicago Lockbox
  9. Hi! We wanted to call NVC for an update but it seems that we couldn't get through the voice prompt before it hangs up. This is the number we called: 1-603-334-0700 Is it currently down? Or is there another number we can call for immigrant visa cases? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
  10. I could not find a general forum for all the Texas Service Center filers to come together and share their progress. This will give us TSC filers a general idea of what dates they are currently working on. My timeline is in my signature. Good luck to everyone, keep us up to date on your progress!
  11. Let’s everyone write their NOA1 & NOA2 date for CR1, CR2 applications at TEXAS SERVICE CENTER. So we know who are waiting - Mine 1.CR1 - NOA1 - Nov 19th 2018 NOA2 - waiting! 2.CR2 - NOA1 - Nov 18th 2018 NOA2 - June 28th 2019 NVC DONE, WAITING FOR INTERVIEW DATE.
  12. After 2 months on administrative processing, my wife got a rejected letter from US consulate in GuangZhou, China. The reason giving by the consulate is 212(a)(9)(B) Unlawfully present in US. My wife was an international student in US with I-94 D/S. She had 1 year OPT after graduate in 2013. She was just letting the OPT expired, did not work, did not apply for any other visa. she never received any notice letter from USCIS or IJ. Due to the family issue, she voluntarily left US in 2016. We got married in 2017. My lawyer says my wife does not subject to 10 years ban because she has I-94 D/S. What I'm gonna to do next?
  13. Hi everyone! My husband and I are currently waiting for a feedback from NVC after they rejected what we uploaded before. Back story is, they rejected the ITR of both my sponsors saying that they cannot accept multiple documents (uploaded 2 forms in one file). What confused us was why they approved the 2016 and 2017 ITR of the same nature(multiple documents) but not our 2018? I know our mistake in 2018 ITR. Now I'm afraid they would change the status of the other documents to rejected. Can they do that?
  14. Hello. This is my situation. I had my second interview last month. Me and my spouse were interview Separately. Before we started the C O said he was sorry to let us wait so much. He told me, this is how we are gonna do this. I am gonna do some questions to you, then to your Husband and then we are not gonna give you a response today. We are gonna do some administrative review then we are gonna call or email with a decision. He did the exact same questions as in the first interview but it was different CO . Then he did some questions to my husband and told him that everything looks good to me. Only thing that is missing is your spouse medical(which i did 7 months ago but they are expired) He told my husband we are gonna call with a decision. I did my medicals and the last update in ceac it was right after i did the medicals. What does it mean administrative review, and what is the difference between administrative process and administrative review? How much do you think it will take do give us the answer. I will appreciate your answer thank you
  15. Hello, My husband had an interview for his IR1 immigrant visa on October 31st 2019 in the U.S. embassy in Guatemalan. He was approved at the time of the interview. It has been 3 business days and CEAC still shows as ready and it does show case updated on November 4, 2019. But the status stayed on ready. Should I be worried?

  17. I just want to know how many times can an IR1 reschedule one’s immigrant visa interview appointment? I kept searching regarding my concern but I am not able to find one. Hoping for your optimistic response.
  18. Hi. This post is about immigrant visa interview preferably CR1/ IR1. I just want to know who among you here have submitted full tax returns during the prescreening instead of the IRS tax transcripts with no problem and was visa approved? Your response is appreciated.
  19. Hi! We got an message from NVC teeling us about our tax transcripts how they are in one document (so we need to split them up). We sent the scanned paper transcripts from our preparer and just found out about the IRS site. I'm wondering which ones to upload? There are 4 documents per year: 1. Account Transcript 2. Record of Account 3. Tax Return Transcript 4. Wage and Income Which ones do I upload? Do I upload all of them? Thank you!
  20. Hi Everyone, I'm having a lot of trouble wrapping my head around the process. My husband is a USC and I'm Australian. We met and married in New York and now are living in Australia while I complete my Masters. We have already dealt with time apart and I'm trying to figure out if there's a way for us to avoid being separated while the visa is processed. Can we petition from Australia to the Chicago lockbox with a joint sponsor and prove intent to domicile? Or can you only do that with consulates that accept DCF? I also can't find any clear information on whether or not the Sydney consulate accepts DCF. I emailed them and their response is extremely vague and mostly just links back to the confusing website. I've been drowning in all this confusing information and really just want clarity on whether or not we will have prepare ourselves to be separated, or if there's a way around it. I don't trust lawyers and message boards are such a great resource I'm really hoping someone who's been in a similar situation can help! Thanks in advance.

  22. Hello Everyone! I’m new here and this is my first post. I’m under IR1 visa category. I have not set my IV interview (US Embassy Manila Philippines) due to the delay for sputum culture result. This has been bothering me a lot. I have my husbands 2018 TAX RETURN, 2018 W2, and 6 months pay stubs. However, everyone that I know has been discouraging me to use it during my interview and insisting that I should get the TAX TRANSCRIPTS. According to my husband, he tried to request it online but it requires a postpaid number. He also cannot have it mailed since he already moved to a new state. To those who already got approved only showing the petitioner’s TAX RETURNS instead of TAX TRANSCRIPTS, did the consul accept it or were you put on 221g asking for the petitioner’s IRS TAX TRANSCRIPTS? Thank you for your optimistic response.
  23. Hi! We just received a notice from NVC about our case and when I log in, there are two messages named Tax Returns but when I click on it, it doesn't show any message! Is that normal? Tried on mobile and laptop, same result. So i tried to click on "Invalid doc" under AOS. But when I open it, it has the message "Due to a systems issue..." is everybody having this message? Since I don't know why the doc is invalid, can I assume that it is because we scanned the actual paper ITR, and not the one that can be downloaded from the IRS site? Help anyone? Below is the image that shows on ceac when opening AOS docs. Also included the blank message.
  24. Hi, I am excited about this website and I am glad that we are all here to support each other. So I got married in May 2019, filed my I-130 in June 2019, and my K3 in August 2019. I had no idea that I could file the K3 Visa until I did some research because I would have filed it sooner, but the immigration office told me that my I-130 would be processed/approved before the K3 visa. The K3 visa application was free so I did it anyway, so I guess I have nothing to lose. So with that being said, when I checked the processing times for the Nebraska Center for both the I-130 and K3... it says that the processing time is shorter for the K3 visa. Please provide your thoughts and opinions, thanks. P.S. It would be even better to get comments from individuals that actually works at some of these processing centers 👍
