  1. Hi My brother has green card he got married in Pakistan Applied for spouse immigration 1/21 got Receipt only no approval yet Anyone has similar situation? Priority date? Approval date? Interview date? Any info appreciated TIA
  2. Hey everyone, I have applied for spouse visa last year in April 2020, case has been documantarily qualified since January 2021. I tired reaching out to NVC and they are saying "I just have to wait for Islamabad embassy to give me interview date". My concern is how long do I have to wait, and how do I contact Islamabad embassy? Is it okay to contact the embassy to expedite the process or at least find out how much longer is it going to take?. Please, help me with suggestions.

  6. Hello, We received K1-FTP notification from NVC on October 28th, 2021 that our case has been set to US embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan. We have already completed DS-160 form and paid the visa fee. However, we have not received a letter from US embassy yet. Our case status on CEAC currently shows "Ready" for interview. Can we proceed with medical examination and scheduling K-1 interview online in the next couple of weeks without Embassy letter in hand? We are thinking about scheduling our interview on November 30th. Can we show up to our interview without embassy letter or would they reject us? Thank you in advance for any guidance!
  7. Hello! I had my CR1 visa interview on the 25th of October and it went well however I received a 221G slip with missing Tax Transcript/W2. My passport was kept by the CO. My husband submitted it the same day right after the interview to the CEAC portal. My case date has updated on the 28th of October and the 1st of November. Has anyone been in a similar situation? How long does this usually take to process? Thank you!
  8. After about 3 months of waiting for my documents to be submitted they finally were, and i was given an RFE..... I added my brother as my household member to meet income requirements, but the issue came when I also added his wife. The reason I also added my brothers wife as my 2nd household member was because my brother filed his taxes jointly with her. Keep in mind she does not have any income, he just filed his taxes jointly. I saw in many forums that if your household member/joint sponsor has filed jointly sometime the embassy can give you issues for not submitting the spouses information. The RFE basically states that my sister in law is not qualified to be a household member and that I should re add her as a Joint Sponsor. I now know that I was definitely supposed to add my brother as the Joint Sponsor and his wife as HIS household member, but its now too late for that as NVC already accepted all his documents as my household member. My Question now is, WHAT SHOULD I DO? 1. Would it be an issue to have my Sister in law as my joint sponsor, and my brother who technically is the one making the income stay as my household member? This is what nvc is basically saying to do, but I feel like thats not right to have her added as my joint sponsor with barely any income? 2. Should I take the risk and just not include my brothers wife. Technically I dont need any other income to meet the requirments since my brother and me should be enough. But I am worried that the embassy might come back and potentially cause issues down the line. 3. I also heard of people submitting a letter requesting nvc to remove someone so they can re add them but I also heard that sometimes this makes the case go into AP and get lost for while. Maybe I can potentially remove my brother as a household member and re add him as my joint sponsor?? 4. Any other thoughts or ideas of how I should approach this would be greatly appreciated!
  9. Hello, I am travelling for Conference but the Website is Showing that the first available appointment is on March 2023. Why is it so ? Is this problem with website or are the waiting times are typically that long ?
  10. CR1 US CITIZEN ISLAMABAD EMBASSY PLEASE HELP, ANYONE WITH KNOWLEDGE OF THE PROCESS Im beyond confused right now. After around 3 months of waiting for my documents to be reviewed and approved at NVC, they were finally reviewed.... but I was given an RFE The summary of the issue is, I added my brother as a household member to combine his income with mine to meet the requirements. My brother is married and filed taxes jointly with his spouse the past 2 years. His spouse has little to no income as she is a stay at home wife, but JUST TO BE SAFE i added her as a household member as well because I did not want to have any issues at the time of an interview in the future. I did not want the embassy to be able to say where is your brothers spouses info since her name is also on his tax transcripts. The RFE was given because they said that my brothers wife does not qualify as a household member and to add her as a joint sponsor. My question is a few things: 1. All my other documents were accepted and submitted, so do I just leave my brother as the household member and add his wife as a joint sponsor even though she technically doesnt have much income? Does it make sense for her to be the Joint sponsor and my brother to be the household member even thought he is the one with the income? (I feel like i should have added my brother as the joint sponsor and his wife as the household member but its too late for that) 2. Should I just not include my brothers wife in this since I dont need her income to meet requirements? The only reason i added her was because my brother has filed jointly with her so I did not want any issues in the future from the embassy in case they as us for her info since her name is also on his transcripts. Is it necessary or not necessary to have her added as well? 3. Or is there any other option I have that anyone would recommend that makes sense? THANKS IN ADVANCE

  12. Hi, I sponsored my mother in Pakistan for green card based on my US citizenship. She was interviewed in Aug 2019 and her case got delayed because of a missing document at interview that was sent, then covid delayed it. She got called in again to Islamabad in Sept 2021 for fingerprint and oath. She previously had green card that expired in 2011 which is all detailed in her initial application. She was in US multiple times till 2011 and stayed about a year and went back Pakistan but never stayed more than 6 month in Pakistan. interviewer told her that since she stay more than 6 months in US, they needed to do an inquiry. If she stayed less than 6 months, they would have given visa right away. Mother did not remember to remind the interviewer she had green card then. They kept her passport. Do you think they overlooked the fact she had greencard? is it something else they will do an inquiry? Please share your thoughts.
