Hi, My relative had her interview for the immigrant visa application but she was refused because the w2 and tax papers of the sponsor were for different years (2020 and 2019). She was asked to submit either the W2 or tax paper for the corresponding year, including a letter from the sponsor, stating that he will be in charge of sponsoring her and her son (she isn't married). What do you think? will they call her for another interview or ask her to submit her passport for issuance after review? Has anyone experienced this before?

Hiya folks, May 2021 bulletin is in. F4 has its usual seven days..so at least two more months for my guy to be current.

Again, previously I argued that if F2B person gets married the parent needs to notify NVC/USCIS and not file a new app when they become USC. Wrong! F1 folks have that luxury, they get moved to F3. For F2B people, who wait for their parent to be naturalised, the parent files afresh for F3 for them. No try this marriage, just dey born dey go with your partner.

Especially court marriage that they will issue you scratch card... I repeat don't try it

Is the joint sponsor a family member?
My brother was put on Ap this morning cus his wifes joint sponsor is her godmother. The CO said they only accept family members as joint sponsors.

This is not true, there is nothing in the immigration Act that states, a joint sponsor must be a family member.

However, the joint sponsor must show that, he/she understands their undertaking and will abide by it....to diffused, this in addition to completing the joint sponsor forms and sending their IRS tax returns, the joint sponsor should write a personal letter to the embassy stating how they know the applicant, if they understand what they are doing and their commitment to abide by it.

I have joint sponsor for many, most are not family members, but friends.

How long do you think it would take if As a citizen you petition for your brother who is like 30years old.

I am aware of the visa bulletin and I think it falls under f4 visa.

I would like to know if there is a possibility of the visa being available in 5 years

Base on the March, 2021 visa bullention:
https://www.nairaland.com/3979737/nvc-processing-stage-u-family/116

Priority date for F4 category, filed on or before Oct. 1st, 2007 are not current....So, you are looking at 14 years and not 10 years any more!

Infact, count yourself lucky, if you were otherwise a Mexicans, you will be looking at 22 years wait periods....no wonder they are jumping the fence. The truth is, the wait time will only increase with time, because the more Nigerians that get immigrated to the US, the longer they increase the wait time, hence Indians, Mexicans and Phillipines have the longest wait time.

Please, what does it mean for a PD to be current and how can I determine that? I am a novice.

e.g. the date that USCIS receives your relatives immigration petition on your behalf is your PD, this date is noted on the upper section of the response letter USCIS will send back to your relative.

Now, your PD is current, if the date listed on the Visa bulletin for this month and is on or after the PD indicted in your USCIS. This means you must have or will soon receive notification from NVC that your case is ready for processing and for F4 category for Nigerians, as per current bulletin, it will take about 14 years....eg I filed for an F4 relative in 2007, their PD became current last year, 2020.

Note that, PD becoming current is different from your immigration petition getting approved by USCIS, in most cases for F4 category, USCIS would approve your petition within one year and send your package to NVC where it will sit in queue for another 13 years.

Also note that, since these are immigration petitions, there could be further delay due to any Presidential executive order or an Act of congress e.g. during Obama years, since they could not get Congress to approve the DREAMERS Act, they decided that they will borrow visa cap from currently approved immigration caps and assign them to DREAMERS, this further reduces the number of available visas to family immigrations therefore further increasing the wait time.

Also note that, immediate relatives are not subject to these wait and these are mainly your unmarried children below certain age spouse and parents who immediately go to the front of the line once USCIS has approved their petitions.

Use the Chart B, ‘ Dates for filing family sponsored Visa Application.

All F4 categories for Nigerians filed on or before Oct 1st, 2007 are now current...anyone whose PD is in this date range and have not received notifications from NVC to start sending in their documents, should call, email NVC or send a message to them from their website.

Chart A is final action dates.

To be honest, I do not really understand that monthly bulletin. My petition is May 2008 and it shows Current. I am DQ February 2021. Category is F3 (married child of a citizen) Is the Embassy conducting interviews and when are we likely to get our invitation? Thanks.

Yes, PD for May 15 2008 became current on December 2019 and the rest PDs for May 2008 became current Jan 2020.

If you are DQ, you are placed at the back of a very long queue for an interview, and I heard that it is a very very long queue, due to the fact that, the embassy is not fully opened yet and they are dealing with the backlog of cases that piled during the shutdown due to pandemic and those cases that were put in Administrative processing due to Trump's Executive Orders that got revised by Biden.

You may have to wait some more months more, the best way to deal with it is to forget about it and go about your life.....when you are called for an interview, you may have to get a new police report....as embassy consider police reports to have expired after one year.....and your police report must be current when you are traveling to the US.

Yes, you can but it is tricky as W2 do not give a complete picture....preferably to use IRS transcript.

However, I doubt they will insist on 2020 transcripts when for an interview date occurring in 2021 before official tax due date in the US for 2020 taxes which is May 15, 2021.

To be on the safer side, go with three years worth of IRS tax transcripts, plus the 2020 W2s ie transcripts for 2017, 2018, 2019 & 2020 W2s.

Also make sure to ask your sponsor to write a letter introducing themselves, how they know you and the fact that they understand the obligations and responsibilities in sponsoring you and they intend to dutifully carry out their responsibilities and obligations towards you.

Good luck!

Ok thanks..

Are you saying the tax papers would be ready by May 15, if so would you rather I just wait for my petitioner to get it since we are already in May.

Secondly, will I get DQ/CC without submitting all documents while I have the unsubmitted documents available for the interview.. I'm just being desperate because it's taking my petitioner and joint sponsor so much time to get these documents ready.

Thanks again for your responses so far
