      6. F2A people you just have to wait two years. F2B people have to wait ten years. Patience is a virtue. If your marriage is true, then you would stay together despite the years apart.

        Stop saying the same thing over and over again. Just wait. At least you have paperwork to enter the United States. I bet a majority of your citizens don't even have that opportunity.

        1. Who are you to decide marriage is true or not.Though process and human relations are separate on paper they should go hand in hand for ethical reasons.So it is unethical on part of USCIS to separate husband and wife.Period.

          Delete
        2. Yes, you are right, two years living in the distance does not affect your marriage at all (read with sarcasm)

          Delete
        3. Well said... you are true....

          Delete
        4. well if ur wife or husband is a resident why dont they visit you while u wait for ur papers? come on! we got ourselves in this wait for a better future, nobody said it was going to be fast, we have to be patient!! sadly we werent born in the US and this is the wait we have to wait. please reading you complaining it is getting tiring. and there are marriages that are waiting longer than only two years, there are even children without seeing their parents and that i recall it is more important than marriages. the wait is killing but learn to wait and you will be rewarded. i am waiting also.

          Delete
        5. My thoughts exactly. I have been waiting to reunite with my mom for 9 years now and every time I come here, I always see comments of people getting frustrated for a 2 year wait. Again, patience is a virtue.

          Delete
        6. we have seen our father after 15 YEARS and my my her husband (our father) she waited for him to get his paper and then he visited us, now we are wating our papers to reunite with him in american, we are waiting two year and one more to be in america, but 15 YEARS passed!! stop crying about just 2 years, and that person is right if you marriage its genuine it will wait, STOP COMPLAINING.

          Delete
        7. Saying people shouldn't complain over 2 year wait is like saying you can't cry over your boyfriend breaking up with you because some kids in Africa don't have a roof over their heads or food in the stomach. They are both completely unrelated and you should not discredit people's problems because yours are greater than theirs. Each person has the right to feel bad over their situation, so just let them be.

      10. You have to pay &120 first for Aos then fill out the form and submit with the supporting documents. The next step is to pay $325 and fill out the IV form. Those two payments are all you need to pay.

      21. Immigrant Community is Anxious to Learn Whether the State Deparment Implements Immigration Actions to Ensure Use of All Statutorily Authorized Immigrant Visa Numbers

        Immigrant community is more than ever waiting for the release of June 2015 Visa Bulletin to see whether the State Department is implementing immigrant visa reform mandate of the President Obama. The USCIS has been seeking stakeholders input on these issues and we have learned that the AILA recommended to implement the following reforms. We fully agree with and support the AILA's recommendations and ask the State Department to implement the following reforms which may even not require the rule-making process.
        Allocate immigrant visa numbers that Congress provided for and intended to be issued, and recapture the immigrant visa numbers that were not issued in past years: As reflected in INA §201, Congress clearly indicated its intent to ensure that no available immigrant visa number should go unused. The statutory scheme sets forth a system whereby unused employment-based visas are to be passed to the family-based category and unused family-based visas are to be passed over to the employment side. Moreover, under INA §203, unused numbers within each of the family- and employment-based preferences trickle down to the next preference within the broader categories. Yet despite this clear mandate, it is reported that approximately 220,000 family and employment-based visas have gone unused. Although recapture of unused numbers has previously been accomplished through congressional action, the INA does not specifically prohibit the State Department from exercising its authority to recapture unused visas on its own. Moreover, cases indicating that recapture is not possible are limited to or based on recapture of visas under the DV lottery. Unlike the family- and employment-based preference scheme, there is no congressional mandate for unused DV lottery numbers to be carried over to the employment-based or family-based categories or vice versa.

      26. 05/08/2015: The United States Digital Services in Charge of "Technical" Part of Modernization of Immigration System

        Consumers must have noticed lately that the USCIS has been going through a lot of technical changes with the online services and management of immigration business. Here is the report of 05/07/2015 from the Uniteed States Digital Services which apparently has been created by the OMB of the White House to take charge of technical reform of the immigration system. This report gives a glimpse of "What is Going on" from the ongoing technical changes with the USCIS immigration management system. This report does not help a bit to understand procedural and substantive program modernization of immigration system under the President's immigration executive actions, but at least gives some information to our "techy" readers for the direction of forthcoming technical changes to the immigration system. You can participate in this technical modernization process of the United States Digital Services. Obviously, a new "younger looking" Technical Director in the White House plays an important role. Such technical reform will bring with it some aches and pains for non-techy consumers of immigration services just as any other online services did including the government healthcare system. Amen!

      32. This notice was published in the federal register on 12/30/2014, not too long after the President Obama released immigration action plans in November 2014. This notice is intended to solicit inputs and recommendations from the public and stakeholders on each of 18 (eighteen) items of proposed reforms for the modernization. The items 15 and 16 covered proposal for Ensuring Use of All Immigrant Visa Numbers as follows:15. What are the most important policy and operational changes, if any, available within the existing statutory framework to ensure that administrative policies, practices, and systems fully and fairly allocate all of the immigrant visa numbers that Congress provides for and intends to be issued each year going forward? [Policy and Operation Changes to Fully and Fairly Allocate All of the Immigrant Visa Numbers in Each Year]16.

      34. "RECAPTURING 'UNUSED' GREEN CARDS

        The Gang of Eight's bill requires that all supposedly "unused" green cards from 1992-2013 in both the family-sponsored and employment-based categories be recaptured and issued in 2015.

        Under current law, the annual cap for all preferences in the family-sponsored green card category is 226,000. Between 1992 and 2012, the U.S. failed to issue the full number of green cards in 14 of the 21 years, amounting to 298,436 green cards. These green cards would be issued in 2015.

        In the employment-based category, the annual cap between 1992 and 2013 was 140,000 green cards. The U.S. failed to grant the full number of green cards in 10 of those 21 years, amounting to 404,658 green cards. But that's not all. Remember, the Gang's bill creates a new employment-based preference for spouses and minor children of employment-based green card holders. Using the same 54% from before and applying it to the 404,658 recaptured employment-based green cards, that's another 474,000 green cards that would be issued in 2015!

        That makes a grand total of 1,177,000 green cards issued through this additional provision."

      51. Don't keep any hope on unused visas or any other thing, they don't care about Family based categories they just need the employment based..., they will prefer only employment based so they will use all the unused visa to them....

        2. Following is written in all Visa Bulletins. Hope this will give your answer's about priority date.

          A. STATUTORY NUMBERS

          1. This bulletin summarizes the availability of immigrant numbers during June. Consular officers are required to report to the Department of State documentarily qualified applicants for numerically limited visas; U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in the Department of Homeland Security reports applicants for adjustment of status. Allocations were made, to the extent possible, in chronological order of reported priority dates, for demand received by May 11th. If not all demand could be satisfied, the category or foreign state in which demand was excessive was deemed oversubscribed. The cut-off date for an oversubscribed category is the priority date of the first applicant who could not be reached within the numerical limits. Only applicants who have a priority date earlier than the cut-off date may be allotted a number.

      61. 220,000 UNUSED VISAS SHOULD BE REALLOCATED TO EASE RETROGRESSION OF VISA NUMBERS AND WAITING DATES

        Like most items paid for in the United States, visas have an exchange and return policy.

        Section 201 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) ensures that no available immigrant visa number should go unused. When an immigrant visa in the Family-based category is not used, the U.S. Congress allows its usage by trickling down to another Family-preference category.

        The 4th Preference category for example (Sisters and brothers of adult U.S.C citizens) has a 65,000 visa allocation, but it can use any other unused visas in the first three Family-based categories (F1 – Over 21 unmarried sons and daughters of U.S. citizens; the F2 (Second Family based subdivided into F2A – spouse and minor children of lawful permanent residents and F2B – over 21 unmarried sons and daughters of lawful permanent residents and finally the F3 – married sons and daughters of U.S. citizens.

        Visa allocation for the Philippines and three other countries are always used up since there are more applicants than visa available under the yearly per-country limits (25,620).

        When a visa petitioner dies, or a visa applicant does not pursue his or her immigrant visa application, that visa is not used and by regulation must be returned to the visa allocation for that year so that others may use it. 

        IF YOU HAVE A VISA PETITION PENDING, you may call or text us at +63-917-529-8472 on your concern.

        Over the years, unused visas were never returned also called “recaptured.” Hence, the spirit and intent of Congress under Section 203 of INA is being ignored at least, violated at worst.
        It is reported that approximately 220,000 family and employment-based visas have gone unused. 

        While in some instances, unused visas have been recaptured by congressional action, the IMA does not specifically prohibit the State Department from exercising its authority to recapture unused visas on its own initiative or even use available visas as regulations allow. 

        The same is true with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). In July 2007, the USCIS used up all the 3rd Preference Employment-based categories. On the first day of July 2007, the U.S. State Department reported that the EB3 category was “Current”. 

        The next day after the USCIS exercised its discretion to allocate the visas to those in the United States applying for adjustment of status, the State Department issued a revised Visa Bulletin showing the EB category as “Unavailable.”

        Anticipating the administrative initiative to institute immigration reforms within its mandate and authority, the Obama administration (which includes the Department of State and the Department of Homeland Security which in turn trickles to the consular posts/Embassies and the USCIS) is widely expected by the immigrant community to exercise its authority – without need for Congressional action – to allocate or recapture the reported 220,000 immigrant visas.

        By recapturing and reallocating the 220,000 immigrant visas, the backlog or retrogression of visa cut-off dates would ease significantly.

        Hopefully, the 7-year retrogression of the EB3 will return to just months of waiting and the Family-based categories specifically for the F2A, F1, F2B, F3 and F4 will move forward faster.

        Stay tuned, mga Kavisas or call/text us at 0917-529-8472 for immediate answers.

          They know very good,legal immigrants didn't stay illegal ,didn't make babes.

        3. yes..I have sent the packet.You don't need any document from NVC to obtain PCC.For obtaining PCC from passport office,take an appointment from passport seva kendra and visit with your passport.PCC will be issued on the same day itself.And to get from SP office, visit district SP office and give an application for PCC.They will issue PCC after back ground checking with your local police station.this may take 1 or 2 week.
