  1. Montreal embassy EB-2 interview wait time-Part 2 Continuation of this thread:
  2. Hey all! I have petitioned for my Russian parents to obtain IR-5 visas as I am a US citizen. Now we are required to submit police reports for them from everywhere they lived starting at 16 y.o. and my parents used to live in Kazakhstan when it was part of USSR and some time after USSR fell apart. It seems that the online platform for obtaining the police report (http://Egov.kz) requires an ID that only is assigned to Kazakh citizens, which my parents are not. How can they obtain the police reports without those IDs? Many thanks!!🙏
  3. Hello everyone, I am wondering if anyone has received an interview appointment at the Abu Dhabi Embassy after recently getting their DQ. it would be great if someone would share their experience.

  5. Hello All please help me out, filling out i130 form online for my spouse and I am stuck at Part 5 Question is "Have you EVER previously filed a petition for this beneficiary or any other alien? Should I Say "YES"? since I applied for my both parents back in 2021 and they are approved. my second question is if I choose here YES then the online application allowing me to put the information for only one parent. means, I only can put the information about my Mother either my father not for the both parents. so what should I do in this situation for better understand my question I uploaded the snapshot s of the screen where i am having a hard time. any help is appreciated. Thank a lot.
  6. What is to be done next if uscis approve form I-130? Is my husband going to send them his current account balance while doing the affidavit of support? Or is he only going to send them his annual salary 🤔
  7. I figured I'd start this thread as I have submitted my paperwork on April 5th.
  8. Hello. i just got approved(USC IR1 Spouse PH beneficiary) and still waiting for my welcome letter from NVC but I want to get ahead and prepare my self to fill up the forms. I'm not sure of this is the right section but my question is: I'm reading ahead about the DS-260 sample forms and I noticed some parts about spouse and children. My situation is I've been here staying in the Philippines since 2018 and living together with my wife and my child. my kid is already a US Citizen via CRBA and have US passport. I still have strong ties in the US(house, DL, banks etc). I Would like to know how to fill this up? is your spouse immigrating to the us with you? How should I answer this? should I answer NO? since me the petitioner is already a US citizen and will sure to travel with her along with my kid to the USA. is your child immigrating with you? How should I answer this? should I answer NO? since my kid is already a US Citizen and have US passport will sure to travel with us back to usa. thank you
  9. Hi all hope you well, I have submitted all documents to CEAC website, today i received an email that I am DQ but also received a message saying I need to add W2-1099 for hubby, so does this means that I go back to the queu and in 14 days we will again the DQ or regardless we are now through. Also my hubby didn’t upload his recent Tax return from IRS but rather the document his tax preparer did. Do you recommend to on this stage add the return? Thank you
  10. I was a regular reader of the last London thread to keep myself updated with current timelines etc before it went to 70+ pages and way off topic. I thought it was such a useful resource so I’ve decided to start the ball rolling again so we can keep each other updated on news as it comes in. To kick us off, me and my wife were DQ 10th July so we’re hoping to get our interview appointment email early November. It appears June DQ dates have been scheduled so hoping this is our time after literally years of waiting. Fingers crossed for no Tier 3 lockdown in London!
  11. Hello all, I am in the process of helping my parents submit their CEAC application for green card through me since I am now a naturalized US citizen. My parents both completed mandatory military service in Poland but never actually served in the military, received weapon training or basic training. They just completed their 2 years and that is all. They do have a "military card" that basically just has their information and completion of this mandatory requirement. One of the questions on the CEAC application asks about prior military service and if you answer "YES" then it asks further about branch of service, rank etc- all are things that do not apply and cannot be answered as their never served in any official capacity. Just wondering if anyone else has had similar situations or can give any advice. Any help is appreciated.
  12. Hi All, My Priority Date is 20-sep-20 and Category is F2A.My interview is done on16th April 23. Interviewer congratulated me and told me that Visa is approved and they hold my passport for visa and said it will be delivered to 3 to 4 weeks.. Till now today (24th May 23) Its status is Ready. As per this month Visa Bulletin Report. Final Action Date for F2A Category is 08-Sep-20. Is this the reason that my visa status is still not "Issued"?
  13. i got NOA2 at MAR 15th and i send to mail at MAY 9 to NVC to want to know my NVC case nnumber and they replied at MAY 13th they said The National Visa Center (NVC) recently received your immigrant visa petition from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Your petition is now waiting for data entry into our systems. and i send mail again i got reply at MAY 18 they said The National Visa Center (NVC) is unable to assist you with your inquiry. Please redirect your inquiry to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).The National Visa Center (NVC) is unable to assist you with your inquiry. Please redirect your inquiry to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). is that returned to USCIS? im so confusing i cant understand whats going on
  14. Is the NVC case invoice number the same as the DS-260 id number? They are asking for this when registering our appointment.
  15. Our Story Me and My Wife got married December 2nd, 2022. She lives in Washington and I live in Afghanistan. We filed our I-130 at the beginning of February and we got our approval after 28 days and after a week our case was transferred to NVC. It has been a few months since then. I am 19 and as my wife is also just 19, she was attending High School last year and didn't make enough and this year as well she is not making enough. My father in law didn't make enough as well last year but he has a house as an asset. We are looking for a joint Sponsor considering our complicated financial situation. We hope we can find it. Our Situation is very tough. Reading our Story, what would be your suggestion for the solutions?
  16. Hello All I thought I would make a Thread for Australian's who have their CASE COMPLETE at NVC and are waiting for an Interview to be scheduled at the US Consulate in Sydney! It might make it easy for us to keep in touch and update each other! I hope this is OK 🐨 We were DQ'd this morning so we will be waiting a while lol
  17. Recently my husband's birth certificate was rejected. I realize the scan looked more like a copy than an original. I don't know if that's the only issue or if they want the "long" version instead. We submitted the "short version." Can someone who has had their documents accepted by NVC please weigh in, did you submit the long or short version and what was the result??
  18. I paid the AOS fee on 4/17 and then that transaction took the money out of my checking account on 4/18. The NVC portal showed the AOS fee as 'Paid' on 4/20. I then proceeded to make the payment for the IV fee on 4/20. That transaction took took the money out of my checking account on 4/21. The NVC portal showed the IV fee 'Paid' on 4/23. Both show paid, so we upload all of our documents and wait for DQ as of 4/25. As of today, 5/5, I receive an email from NVC about the IV Fee saying "Unfortunately, the receiving bank was unable to accept your payment for the following reason: No Reason Provided." My checking account still has both fees deducted though -- and now the NVC portal is saying 'Not Paid' for the IV Fee and there's a message saying the IV Fee was rejected. I have read through lots of experiences people have had where it would take a long time to show 'Paid' after they made payment...but that common issue isn't this one. This issue is (I think?) nuanced because the money left my checking account, NVC showed paid, and now it shows unpaid. Has anyone ever heard of this? Should I be worried? What should I do?
  19. Hi everyone! So my husband and I got our NOA2 and we are super excited! So now we are prepping for the NVC stage even though we know there will be some time between NVC receiving our case and everything we need to do. For the Police certificate from South Korea, is there an expiration date? I can’t find one on the US document equivalent website besides two years and the Korean police certificate does not have an expiration on it according to the Police station my husband called that can issue it in his city in Korea. anyone who completed the NVC stage for South Korea have a list of documents needed? Or any info about the police certificate validity period? any help is appreciated! thank you!
  20. Hi All, I need your help and advise about my case. I got today the DQ as an email from the NVC as below: after login to the NVC website, I found out my name (as applicant) added as Household but am not applicable. shall I email NVC about this or my case will be moved to the embassy? should I answer this section saying am not applicable? Also, i went to the messages i didn't find anything about updating the household member: we are very confused now. Regards, Noor
  21. Hello everyone. We submitted our documents to CEAC (IR-1/CR-1) on January 19th, but yesterday (March 18th) after reading some posts about required financial documents, we uploaded additional pay stubs and some other financial supporting documents, and submitted them. My question is; Would this delay or reset our processing time for NVC? There was no warning or anything that states any delay on CEAC, and we couldn’t find any information on this matter online, so I wanted to start a new topic and ask my VJ friends.
  22. My wife and I are on the civil documents part of the NVC process. My wife is from and lives in the Philippines. At one point my wife lived and worked in Hong Kong for a little less than 8 months. She has never been arrested in her life. It was to my understanding that if she lived in any other country for at least a year she would have to provide a police clearance from that country. However on the civil documents section they are asking for a police clearance from HK. Is it ok to leave this section blank and explain that she has never been arrested or committed a crime in HK and she lived there less than 12 months? Anyone with experience on this subject out there?
  23. Has any one experienced delay with their RCMP police certificate? It should take like 10 business days at most (2 weeks), but mine has been taking more than three weeks, and every time I call they it's in processing (I am pretty sure I got no criminal records btw ). I am kind of in a hurry ! Is there anything I can do to expedite this? I'd appreciate if people could share their experience in case they have had the same issue (and share when they applied for the police certificate and when they received it). Thanks !
  24. Just looking for some other people’s experience with invalid documents on NVC portal. When you’ve reuploaded the documents, how long did it take to have them accepted? Like was it somewhat quickly because they have already reviewed your application, or does it go to the bottom of the pile again?? thanks
  25. Hello and happy day to all! I'm new here, and I could need some help with my situation. My wife submitted my F2A on my behalf. She has a green card and is currently employed in the USA. Getting police clearance in every country I've worked with is one of the difficult prerequisites. Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Macao, and Dubai are the nations. First, I'd want to talk about Saudi Arabia because it's quite challenging since I don't have my iqama copy already and KSA is a very strict country as we all know. I am confident that this is achievable, but because I am currently in the Philippines, could you kindly advise where I should begin? advice me, pls.
