Doesn't it mean u still have to wait for two more years to be scheduled for an interview? Do u think F4 folks who're married with children and haven't added the kids are dulling themselves? My guy's PD is August 24 2007. I understand it's three more years for him.

My case is not f4. Its F1. Unmarried adult children of U.S citizens.

Good evening , what r the document my sister need to send to me and how can I film the Ds 260

You will fill the DS 260 Form once NVC has contacted u for further processing. When u get to that bridge, u will know what to do , cos you are adequately informed, on the step by step procedures at the NVC processing stage, once you are sent the welcome letter.

Ds 260 is for immigrant visa processing. Ds 160 is for visiting visa which is what you need. Until then, this is the link on nairaland that would be most helpful to you. All the best

Nope. I have kids. Not married yet. Your kids can be added to your case. They are called derivatives. You either have an option to go with them as your derivatives, or they can follow to join you later if you wish.

It should be on the National Population Commission A4 sized paper rather than the smaller version we get from the hospital.

If it is the NPC version then you are fine. Given you got it from the local government I think you have the right one.

Oladeep:
Bro, I just checked it now. The one I have is issued by the local government and not d hospital, it has d local government stamp on it. I just wanna be sure to avoid unnecessary spending.

Hey that is a very broad question, at what stage are you in the process i.e. NVC stage or Embassy stage?

When it is time for you to fill the DS260, you will be notified by the NVC via email including a link so if you have not gotten notification to fill out the DS 260 then you can't fill it out yet.

I will advice you read up on the end to end process using the links below so you are aware of what to expect at each stage.

The below link provides step by step guide on what to expect and you will find the link for the DS 260 as well but as you will see in the flow your application needs to be approved and you pay the necessary fees before you will be asked to fill the DS 260. You will also see the required documents listed.

If they are under F4 that means their siblings filed for them. They don't have a problem. Even if they get married to the mother/father of their kids, it is still the same time frame, think its about 13-14yrs wait. For F4 category. That's the longest wait time

I believe ttmacoy has sent u a detailed answer to this question.
Then as regards to the stay and work part as an immigrant in your statement. You cannot use a a B1/B2 visiting/tourism visa to live and work in America. Your sister has to file an I-130 immigrant visa form for you, and she has to be a citizen to do that. Then u will be on the queue to wait for it to be current . waiting time takes long though. U have to be patient.

Let your sister google USCIS and fill the form based on the type of immigrant petition for siblings.

You should be aware that it takes about 13 years plus for such petitions to be available for immigrant visa.

Tell your sis to visit the website www.uscis.gov or she should go to homeland securities nearest to her. She will get all the information she needs about filing for you. Best of luck.

And as beautyaddy said. It takes 13years plus. But even if u get married, your wife and kids will go with you once you become current.

That's the issue. We got our welcome letter the same day. Although our priority date is 6months apart. I finished sending all my doca before him. His lawyer sent his around August. I just hope he would not require additional docs though, cos he has not gotten C.C yet.

Honestly, cos d way d guy has been dishing out executive orders lately ehn!...They might have reduced d allocation of visa numbers for each fiscal years to frustrate d whole thing. Imagine F4 has only moved 2weeks in d past 7months and which has never happened before. Look at it dis way, Trump was sworn in January and by March, There has been little or no movement in d bulletin...Just thinking out loud though.
