  2. Is it possible to expedite the petition for my sister (F4) due to situation in Ukraine (impending war)? She's still at the USCIS stage, I applied in 2020. My father will be able to come into the country and apply for her soon, would that be an option? What about for my parent (IR-5), who's at the NVC currently? Also, is it possible to switch the interview to another country when we were auto-assigned to Kyiv for IR-5? What is the best way to go about it to get them out of the country and safe? Really appreciate your advice!!
  3. Hello, I resubmitted my parents marriage certificate to NVC before 3 weeks and they still haven’t reviewed it. Does anyone know how much time more will it take to get reviewed. All other documents have been accepted. Also if anyone knows about Pakistan Islamabad embassy that how much time will it take for them to schedule an interview. Thanks in advance.

  5. Hello All, my grandparents had an interview on December 14th at us embassy in Abu Dhabi for IR5 visa. After interview the consular said we need clearance and after 2-4 weeks we will contact you to send passports. Meanwhile he said all electronic documents is complete but just upload i-864 because it doesn’t show it on our end. I explained to him we have originals. He said just upload. I also explained to him that NVC had a glitch when I upload it and had to submit multiple times. He also asked for my grandfather to upload his military service exemption. Today a day after that I’m checking the status it says “refused” for my grandfather and “ready” for interview for my grandmother. any clue what is 2-4 week clearance check?? i even asked the officer if there is a problem and he said this is a normal process
  6. So I applied for both of my parents for IR5. My dad is ahead and his interview is upcoming. The NVC send me a message I don's qualify for the sponsorship. I don't make much but I though we could use the assets of my dad in his home country. Do we fill out the I -864 A as well? If we were to be asked to get a joint sponsor, how long do we have after the interview to submit the document?
  7. Hi guys, If in a scenario where the sponsor is petitioning for his mother only, but there is an error with the alphabet in the sponsor's deceased father's name (the beneficiary's deceased husband name), so would that be a problem in the documentation of sponsoring the mother (beneficiary) only to US? (Adjust status or Counselor processing both). Say like the Sponsor has the father's name is Suhail in the documents where as the mother has the husband's name written as Sohail in her documents. TIA
  8. Each month, VisaJourney dives into the official US State Department data and captures the latest Family & US visa approval trends for K1, CR1, IR1 and IR5 visas. This page is updated monthly. K1 Visa processing is starting to pick up. K1's are3 being sent to Mexico City. IR1 Visa processing is ramping up. There is likely a significant backlog that will take 8-12 months to clear given the slow down last year. It appears IR1 processing is taking priority over K1s at the moment. CR1 Visa processing (couples married less than 2 years) is following the same trend as IR-1 Visas. What do you think of the data (below)? Do you think the US consulate in Ciudad Juarez is artificially slowing don K1 Visa processing to prioritize other work or for other reasons?
  9. 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?
  10. Hi! My parents are in China. They just received the IR5 visas. Can they come to America now without staying in a third country for 14 days? I called MULTIPLE airlines and they said IR5 is not shown on their website's list and can't tell me. They told me to call local consulate. I contacted consulate in Guangzhou but they said I need to contact the appropriate Regional Carrier Liaison Group (RCLG) or other designated CBP official. Did anybody know some people come to America with IR5 visas recently from China? Thanks!
  11. Hi all, Does anyone already have their interview date for their parents in the Philippines? I'm a January 2021 filer, approved by April and waiting for interview date. Thanks all!

  13. April 18th 2019 ; Mailed form I-130 and all related documents to NVC Nov. 4th 2019; Approved and case opened (Documents sent to embassy in Ghana) Received Email in February 2020; Interview scheduled for April 9th 2020. Received Email in March 2020 ; Interview rescheduled to August 19th 2020 due to COVID. June 2020; All visas suspended until further notice. November 2020; Sent the embassy enquiries about case status. Auto message sent to me about visa interview suspension. March 2021; Another enquiry sent; Same auto message and the next day received email interview appointment on May 5th 2021. NB: New police certificate and new medicals required and done prior to interview. May 5th 2021; interview was done and dad granted the visa. Told to collect passport at DHL. Dad’s account of the Interview at the embassy in Accra Ghana 🇬🇭 * I got to the gate at about 5 min to my scheduled time of 7:00 am - I stood at a distance waiting for my clock to strike 7th hour - on the dot I moved towards the gate only to be called back by a police guard! The ensuing discourse: “Man, where’re you going?” ‘I’m scheduled for an interview here today’ “Well, it’s not time yet” ‘I was asked to be here @ 7:00 am 😲’ “Well, when the Embassy’s staff are ready they’ll come out with a list and call out the names. So you may have to join the crowd there (pointing towards the trees within the circle in the autoroute) and wait to be called” ‘Thank you sir!’ - We waited under the trees until at about 7:29 when I saw a security guard appear at the gate with a white sheet of paper in hand. - Then the police guard came to us with this invitation “The 7 o’clock and the 7:30 people, come on in” - The security guard asked for my appointment letter and passport - Having confirmed my name on the list he said “You can go in but your smart phones and smart watch would not be allowed in, go back and leave them somewhere and come” - ‘can’t I deposit them at the first security check?.....”No” he retorted. - After doing the needful I got through the security check Point and was directed to the main building door. - After the COVID-19 protocol hand wash I entered the main building. - a female receptionist again checked for my name on a list with her and directed me on to the waiting area. Then came the start of the process - A lady invited me to the booth, took my finger-prints and checked my documents; then she asked me to sit down and wait to be called. Then came the call “Mr _________, come to booth 8” The female voice sounded very friendly so I felt relaxed as I walked to booth 8 and we exchanged pleasantries. Ensuing discourse: *c/o - “Pls give me your documents” •Dad - ‘Here they are’ *c/o- “who is inviting you to the U.S?” •Dad- ‘my eldest son’😊 *c/o “is he married?” •Dad- no *c/o- “how long has he been in the USA?” Dad- ....answered! *c/o- what work does he do? Dad-.... answered c/o- “how many children do you have?” Dad- Three c/o- “ is your other son married?.” Dad- No c/o- “where are your other children?” Dad- all three are in the US c/o- where is your wife? Dad- she is in the US too c/o - So your son filed for her? Dad- no it’s the other way round 😊 c/o- How long has your son been in the US? Dad- ...answered c/o- How long has your wife been in the US? Dad- answered. c/o- did you go through another medical exam? Dad- Yes I did. c/o - where? Dad- AKAI CLINIC c/o- When was that?. Dad- Answered **c/o was nodding to his answers as she verified the information on her computer** c/o- have decided to give you a visa 😊 Dad- Thank you 😁 c/o then handed him a piece of paper with information on collection of passport through DHL. NOTE: Dad’s visa was verbally approved but I checked the status on https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx?App=IV and shows visa was REFUSED 😳. First I panicked and then I read this on the website https://ceac.state.gov/CEACStatTracker/Status.aspx?App=IV. So it says refused but not under 221(g) so no further documents are required. It’s a new status for administrative processing meaning the visa is being processed until the status changes to ISSUED then we can contact DHL. Please let me know if anyone else had this status and how long it took for the visa to be issued? Thank you in advance 😊
  14. Hello all in the forum. I was Thinking about this, as parents are immediate relatives will there be a possibility of creating a petition to overturn the ban on parents IR5 and fiancé K1 on the EO. As the president claimed, the order can be amended within 30 days of it being issued on june 23rd and 60 days thereafter. the petition can go along the lines of no risk to US jobs from parents and because of the affidavit that we signed to support they are going to be taken care of by ourselves anyway. Suggestions.
  15. How to Ensure the Interview Date for Mother & Father is Same at Mumbai Consulate US Citizens’ parents are generally above 65 years of age . Their I-130 (IR-5) petitions are applied / approved seperately . It is desirable that the Parents who are Senior Citizens have the Interviews at the Consulate on the same day . How to ensure that the Interview is held for Mother and Father on the same day ? All concerned would like to know if the request for this must be made at the NVC stage itself in advance while filling DS.260 ? Is there any such option available ? Or later after two different Interview Dates are given by the Consulate ? Will the Consulate combine the dates , on our request ? How many days more ? All concerned VJ Members may like to share their views giving dates of NOA-1 , NOA-2 for one parent and when they got NOA-2 Approval for other parent . Your views please . Thanks . ----------------------------------------------------------------
  16. Hello everyone! Could you please advise how it is better to bring to the US my mom and her 20-year old son (my half brother). Do I need to file for my mom and then my brother will be automatically included into the process? He will turn 21 in October 2021. Do we have enough time? How to speed up the process? Or do I file for f4 sibling visa for him (but then it is like 15 years). Or is it better to file for my mom and then once she gets her green card, she would file for him (but it is again like 15 years). Thanks a lot!
