As a sibling of a US citizen, I understand how important it is to be reunited with family. However, the process of bringing siblings to the United States can be a long and complicated one. In this article, I will explain the I-130 processing time for sibling immigration petitions in 2021, factors that can affect processing time, tips for speeding up the process, and what to do if your petition is taking longer than expected.
Sibling immigration petitions are a way for US citizens to bring their brothers and sisters to the United States. It is important to note that only US citizens can petition for their siblings. Permanent residents are not eligible to file a sibling immigration petition. Additionally, the sibling must be unmarried and over the age of 21.
The process of filing a sibling immigration petition involves submitting Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, to US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). This form establishes the relationship between the US citizen and their sibling and serves as the first step in the immigration process.
The I-130 form is a petition that establishes a family relationship between a US citizen and their sibling. The form must be completed accurately and submitted to USCIS along with supporting documents, such as birth certificates and marriage certificates. Once USCIS receives the I-130 form, they will review it to ensure that it is complete and accurate. If there are any issues or missing information, USCIS will request additional documentation or clarification. If the I-130 form is approved by USCIS, it will be sent to the National Visa Center (NVC) for further processing. The NVC will then send the petition to the US embassy or consulate in the sibling's home country, where they will be interviewed and screened for eligibility for a visa to enter the United States.
The processing time for sibling immigration petitions can vary greatly depending on a number of factors. In general, USCIS estimates that the processing time for an I-130 form is between 7 and 15 months.
