  1. Hello, I am starting a thread to track I-130 for parents filed in May 2020. Please join the conversation and share your journey/process. I filed I-130 (with Consular processing) for both my parents online today, May 4th, 2020. Got IOE receipt numbers immediately.
  2. 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 . ----------------------------------------------------------------

  5. EO Suspending Immigration Visa for IR-5 , F1, F2A, F2B, F3, F4 etc. for 60 days – Clarification Needed. Does it mean stop processing of I-130 , at every stage ( USCIS , NVC , Consulate , Interview ) or only at the final stage of issuance of the IV . Clarification is required if I-130 processing for these categories will continue inside USCIS/NVC/Consulate internally but only issuance of Visa will be put on hold for 2 months . Therefore there will not be any delay in processing of I-130 at these stages ? Subsequently they will start issuing the visa after the Interview , after 60 days . Or otherwise they will drop out these cases all together at all levels and stop I-130 processing . So there will be delay at every stage ? ---------------------------------------------------------
  6. Parents of US Citizens who are generally Old age peoples above 65+ years have been left out in the current Executive Order . Are they not part of family ? Will they eat aways jobs of others . We all have filed I-130 for our respective parents with a hope to form our complete family . It is realy painful . This new topic is being created , so that affected persons can express / share their views .
  7. Hi All, Hope you are all staying safe during this crazy times. I have a question regarding approved IR5 visas (Parent of US Citizen) that are pending on medical exam results. Would this visa still be approved after the EO? My mom had her visa approved on 3/6/2020, her passport was kept at the consulate due to the approval BUT they are still waiting on her medical exam results to finalize the process. The lab results are due on 6/2/2020. The question is .... IS SHE STILL APPROVED? OR will she be banned for good after the 60 days? If any of you can please through some light into this I would appreciate. Thanks and good luck to us all
  8. I thought I would share our experience (so far) with an expedited interview request at the consulate in Ciudad Juarez. My wife is petitioning for her mom. Our NVC case closed date was in January 2019. Wife found out she was pregnant in April. Baby is due in January. We knew there was a big backlog but we hoped to receive appointment by November through the regular process. But 10 months and nothing. Finally, the week before Thanksgiving we sent an expedite request to the NVC inbox. Attached a doctor letter confirming the pregnancy and due date. About 5 days later we received notice that the expedite request had been approved and the case was being forwarded to the consulate in Juarez. About a week after that my wife received a call from the consulate (Mexican phone number) asking when she wanted to have the appointment. They gave her one for following week. About a day later, we got an email with the official appointment notice. Arrived here in Juarez on Tuesday. Had the ASC and medical today. The crowds were light because consulate is closed Wed and Thu this week. Interview is Friday.
  9. Good day all, All documents and fees were approved and completed on my IR5 on March 7th 2019. Notice from the NVC was that an interview would be scheduled at the Consulate and I would be notified by email or mail. Does anybody know what the approximate turnover times are for the interview? Can I expect an interview in April? Thank you!
  10. I can't find a thread with this topic so I started one. Last September 2017 , we filed a petition for my mom to become PR, case was sent to TEXAS Service Center, it only took us 6 months to wait for USCIS to approve my petition, My mom is here in the US already. Last August 2019, we also filed a petition for my husband's mom to come to US and expecting to get the NOA2 next month,but case was sent to NEBRASKA Service Center. I did a reserach, and it says there the processing time for I130 in Nebraska is about 12 to 19.5 months, why it's longer? Does anyone of you whose case was sent also to Nebraska? Does it really take a year or more to wait for NOA2?
  11. Hello all, I just get the the interview letter from NVC by email. Will that be enough to bring for medical exam or I have to wait the physical letter to arrive by mail? Thank you!
  12. I filed for both parents in ghana and below is my timeline: NOA1 - 07/05/2018 NOA2 - 02/27/2019 CASE SENT TO NVC: 03/05/2019 NVC CASE # ASSIGNED: still waiting I wanted to know how the below questions as i'm little nervous about this whole process what are some of the interview questions they can /ask your parents at the US embassy in Accra? what other documents do i need to provide apart from the ones listed at the NVC website? the reason i'm asking this is because the CO in Ghana can be hard on you sometimes
  13. Hello all, I just received an email from NVC stating that they will work with the embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia to get an interview date for my parent (IR5). Does anyone have any idea how long does it takes for the NVC to obtain the date? Thank you!
  14. Hi everyone, With the new law I am super worried about my mom's approval. I am petitioner and we approved by USCIS on October 3rd. I make 26K/year, still in school but will make at least 40K/year when I graduate next year. Total with my husband we make like almost 90k/year for this year alone. We never under public assistant (food stamp, medicaid, social security, and so on). We only have 1 child. My mom is a retiree, she is 53 and housewife. I saw a post before that she got denied because the embassy worker concern about she will need public assistance as soon as she arrive in the US. Well for me, we make enough money to support my mom (noted that she also have 2 kids under the age of 17. We already support them from here as well) and I am very sure that she will not go under any public assistance when she gets here. Could anyone reasure me that I do not have to be worried based on my income and situations? Please help!!!
  15. Hello all, I got NOA2 yesterday (mail) and it stated that they forward the case to NVC. I read some of the post here that NVC will not let me know about the case number or invoice ID without me calling them every single week? Here is the quote from NVC site: "You have come to this page because you received a letter or email from NVC directing you here after NVC received your approved petition from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)." So I am confused...will they or will not they let me know when they received the case, assign case number and invoice id? I really do not want to spent time to call them if they will eventually give me the case#...but if that is needed, then I guess I will do it Any helps will be greatful!
  16.

  18. Hello, One of the document requirement of visa interview for IR5 is bringing my original birth certificate to my mom's interview. Can we substitute that with certified- translated copy? I have my original with me and my mom has the certified-translated copy. Just wanted to know if I do not have to send my original as I am afraid it could lost in the mail. Thanks!
  19. My Father requested a marriage record at the PSA and found two marriages - from his first wife and my Mom. His first wife left him and their children since 1970 and never heard anything eversince, he doesn't know if she's still alive or not and even my brothers don't remember what she looked like, they were 5 years old and below at that time. Then he married my Mom in 1992 both civil and church wedding. I am confused what papers to send. There was a question in a form that says "How was the previous Marriage terminated"? To those with the similar situation Please enlighten me. Thank you.
  20. My father's initial status was Administrative Processing after his immigrant visa interview on June 27. He had to submit a few documents like updated police certificate and family registry and i864-A so he was given 221g. After submitting the documents on July 17, my mother's visa went from READY TO ISSUED on Aug 1 and my father's visa went from AP to READY FOR INTERVIEW. The date has been updated a few times but case still ready for interview. No feedback from embassy. Please help if you know anything about this scenario!
  21. Hi VJ peeps, Both my parents had their interview together end of June 2019. They had some documents missing so received a 221g sheet to submit the required. They submitted the documents on July 18. Throughout this period, my dad's status was at Administrative Processing and my mom's was at ready [for interview]. On August 1, my mom's status changed from Ready to Issued and she received her passport with the visa the next day. My dad's status changed from AP to Ready [for interview]. It's almost been a month now and my dad's status has not changed. We have tried e-mailing and calling. No feedback. Anyone in/or has been in the same boat? Appreciate any input.
  22. Looking to see if anyone faced a similar situation at the same or any other consulate. My father was missing a doc showing he had no military affiliations at his May 29th interview. He received a 221g pink form. The embassy received the doc and his passport on June 17th. June 27th they emailed him asking to answer 6 questions (names of siblings, travel, work description, prior passport numbers). Responded same day. They responded to wait for an email with further instructions. Still nothing. Country of citizenship Azerbaijan. My dad never served in military, clean record, retired but was an engineer with a steel recycling facility. Anyone else?
  23. My lease is up in 2 months and we will be moving to a different place. I am filling out DS260 for my parents and there’s a question to where they should mail their green cards once the everything is done. I am estimating that it will be at least 3 months after nvc approves their documents, get an interview appointment and whatnot. Is it safe for me to put my grandmother in law’s house who lives next state and put my name as a contact? We go there often and handles some of our letters. I just dont want to risk losing their green cards to the wrong hands when the time comes. Or should I stick with our current address and call them to change it later? Do you even call the uscis for that even though my petitions went to nvc and consular processing? Let me know. I really want to get this done already.
  24. So I am preparing to do the I-864 for my parents and I have to upload it online. Both of my parents are principal immigrants. I filed an I-130 separately but at the same time. Do I have to upload TWO separate affidavit of support? Or do I just do one? I am planning to just combine it all into 1 pdf file if I have to do two I-864. Let me know so i can get everything ready. I am stuck on this part and I want to get it all done by weekend. Thanks!
  25. Hi, My mother in law will go go Ciudad juarez because her young son has the consulate appointment later this month. Should be very straightforward. However, on average for Ciudad Juarez, after approval of visa, how long is it taking to receive the package? She has reserved a hotel for around 7-8 days after the interview so she can get the papers, and cross the border to El Paso. Any experiences???
