I feel your pain, that's the longest category. At least you're not from the Philippines or Mexico.

When is your priority date?


I am on the f4 category. on the september buletin I found 01Jan02

For F2b category, they are working on applications submitted before 01Nov2010, so that's a 7 year plus wait.

I would advice your fiancée file for you as that is quicker. I assume he/she is a citizen? If yes you can get a green card within a year after you are married. You will have to apply for a fiancée visa first and then get married before you can apply for a green card.

If your fiancée is a green card holder then you will fall under the f2a category which is about a 2 year plus wait.

The link below is to the visa bulletin released by the US dept of state and shows what dates they are working on for each category.

Technically that's wrong, only a us citizen can file a fiance visa aka k1, a green card holder cant do that

You are correct thanks, I forgot to clarify that when I wrote about the f2a category.

I have edited the post.

I meant what's your priory date i.e. The date USCIS confirmed they received your immigrant application.

Thanks a lot, very helpful information

If your fiancée is a green card holder then you will fall under the f2a category after you get married which is about a 2 year plus wait.

Note if your fiancée is a green card holder you are not able to apply for a fiancée visa, you will have to wait till you are married to submit your application and get a priorty number assigned.

Another advantage of the fiancée visa is you will be able to remain in the US while you process your green card as opposed to having to wait in a nigeria, but note you are expected to get married within 90 days on a fiancée visa.

the was returned and was told to return with it
but has anyone had this issue
Re: US Family Preference Visa Waiters Lounge by ttmacoy: 6:15am On Aug 30, 2017
The US visa availability runs on the US govt fiscal year from October, so they tend to run out of visas as they approach October hence why the priority dates tend to slow down or even stop moving sometimes.

You should be able to get your visa in october as I assume it has been approved. Would be worthwhile reaching out to them in October if you don't hear from them.
