If a F4 category goes ahead to add wife and kids via this link will it extend the waiting time. Will this affect the years of waiting?

@pretty16_ Plssssss.

Nope. Adding your wife and kids under the F4category does not extend the waiting time. F4 waiting time on it's own is already the longest waiting time of all categories, I guess that's why it doesn't affect or change anything.
So by all means go ahead and add your family.

If your sister's case is placed in AP it means the consulate is awaiting a security advisory opinion. Your sister's name must have appeared in a database or something about her application currently don't add up per the consular officer. So the consulate is awaiting more details to determine her eligibility or otherwise. Usually the principal applicant should have received a notice to that effect.
ACTION;
Write to the consulate to clarify that her case is actually in AP. Ask if the consulate requires additional documents. If the consulate confirms AP status, wait until 60days before reaching out again if no communication.
QUESTIONS;
Has your sister applied for US Visa in the past? Has she ever been in the US? When the embassy asked for pictures of your mum and sister at various stages, were they submitted? Has any of those pictures been at the embassy before?









AndreMarley:
Goodday friends, hope everyone is well. Please i have a question concerning immigrant visa, My mum & I were issued our immigrants visas last month, I was a derivative applicant, my mum being the main applicant but here is the issue, Originally, i wasn't the only derivative applicant of this visa case, My sister was also included, everything was going well but surprisingly, when we got our interview letter in July, her name wasn't included among those to be present at the interview, however we planned that when we got there we would make enquiry about it at the embassy. On the day of our interview, surprisingly my sister's name was in their file over there and while we were being screened before the main interview they asked for my sister, same thing happened when the visa officer came, she called my name, my mum's name and my sister's name but we explained to her that my sister didn't come because her name wasn't in the interview letter, she then asked if we would like her to come now or after, We said after, then after a few questions(we weren't issued our visa that day) because she asked for pictures of my mum with my sister when she was a kid, teenager & adult which we were ask to submit at one DHL office together with our passport which we did, then a few days later we were asked to come pick up the visa... Here is my question please, I tried to check our visa status on the embassy site and I & my mum's visa status have changed to "Issued".. But my sister's own is showing " Administrative processing ", please what does it mean?? I also read somewhere that administrative processing cases are usually resolved within 60days, but its been over 40 days now and we haven't heard from them, Should we write an email to them? Or is there any other thing needed to be done please??

Hi All, I have been on administrative processing since o. Had my u.s immigrant visa interview on the 11th of december. Was neither rejected nor issued a visa but was asked for some more documents which i sent via dhl. Now when i check it says administrative processing and was last updated on the 18th of December. I'm seriously praying about it.
I am in category F3 and my priority date is july 2006.
Anyone with similar experience?

@ Stancima, you immediately get an automated response when you send them an email o. Nothing to address the case.

Hello everyone, it's been a while. Happy New Year!!!

You might be on hold for now cos the embassy is currently affected by the government shut down. So till the government re-opens things would take a slow course right now.

Hello Peeps, Please i want to confirm if someone can do soft landing in USA and return later to live there. My sister has an immigrant visa and will be rounding up her MSc in few months time and quickly wants to land , stay a little in USA and come back to Naija to finish up her program. Is it possible in the USA?
Re: At The NVC Processing Stage Of The U. S Family Based Preference Category. by koolkesh(m): 10:32pm On Jan 05
Yes she can come in get her green card and other documents and return to Nigeria but she is not supposed to be out of the country(U.S) for more than 6 month. So as long as she is going to return back before 6 month she is fine.

Like Koolkesh mentioned, the US govt shutdown will affect the consulates. You are still well within the time frame for administrative processes so just relax. They will get back to you.

Re: At The NVC Processing Stage Of The U. S Family Based Preference Category. by Stancima(m): 11:55pm On Jan 05
If your sister intends to stay beyond 180days, then she should apply for a re-entry permit while in the US. If she is staying less than 180days outside the USA, then she should be fine.

Thank you so much for your reply, let me start with your last set of questions, No my sister has never applied for a Visa before, she has never travelled out of Nigeria too, and yes we submitted the pictures they requested for and those pictures have never been at the embassy.
However, I have written to the consulate via email on saturday as it has gone pass 60days, they replied me today, they requested for passport number of the applicant(i'm guessing it's my mum's own since she is the main applicant), also for the email we used while opening a profile, haven't replied yet, want to be sure i understand what they are asking for, Thanks for your response
Re: At The NVC Processing Stage Of The U. S Family Based Preference Category. by koolkesh(m): 1:51am On Jan 08
To be on the safe side I believe you should send all parties passport and you should just identify who the Applicant is and who the derivatives applicants are.

Hello peeps. Happy New year. How is everyone doing?
Oladeep, Stancima, chicksy, koolkesh, hows everyone doing? Glad to see you guys are updating the thread.
Anyone who has gone for their interview and not heard anything yet just relax. Pretty sure the government shutdown is affecting all the agencies, home and abroad. Make we just pray for them to agree on time and reopen, cos its slowing down a lot. All will be well.

You maybe lucky though. If Lagos embassy has free slots for the month they're scheduling interviews you can still get an interview date before your date is current on the visa bulletin
True to your words they did,thanks a lot

Hello , the 116000 was for both of us, they took my daughters immunization card to verify her records, and it was written in one bill so I can’t really say how much for each.
