I know very well that you really wants to know latest update on US Immigration Update and how the Visa Interview is done.
So currently, there is full scale news that the US Embassy is now processing the documentation of immigrants to US which is obviously ban last time during the Covid 19 pandemic.
So the latest news is that the Embassy is open to start accepting Visa and process Immigrants interview.
Stay tune to this page, there are other things we would like to review to you, but as we move on, you will know then gradually.
US Visa Interview Updates
We should note that Trump imposes immigration ban stopping interviews and visas issuance for most family and employment based petitions. His reasoning was that with high unemployment caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, he didn’t want thousands of immigrants pouring into the US and taking away jobs from American.
So now spouses and minor children of US citizens were exempt from this immigration ban.
Finally, the ban has now officially expired as of March 33 2023.
But it doesn’t end there, so what is the latest news so far?
The state department issues notices that even though the ban was over, embassies were not yet ready to fully reopen as staffing and resources would allow.
And also they could not provide the specific date or time when interview or Visa issuance will begin going full speed ahead.
However we have some great news and development in that the embassies are now not only processing immidiate relative cases but other family cases.
So right now we saw some immigration movement.
That can be right example of Current situation.
In a case of Adult single child, in the category F2B which is single adult child of an immigrant, he was already interviewed last year and was waiting and hoping for the Visa to be issued when the pandemic came and Trump’s immigration ban.
So everything was put on hold, however good news for the family just this last March 2023, the US Embassy in Manila sent them a notice instructing them to what we called update various documents.
Which Documents may be Needed – NVC Update 2023
Well what were the documents that needed updating and how may that help you? While some of the documents the embassy said needed to be updated were.
First is the DS 260 which is a Visa immigration application form. Now that had already been submitted last year in connection with the interview, the embassy wants it updated.
Another document is Marriage Documentation which will be like an updated certification of no marriage. Since the benefitiary is being petition as single the embassy wants that they did not get married within the past year, otherwise the Visa would be void.
Next is New Police Clearance
Again to make sure he did not committed any crime during the past year
Final one is New Medical Report which seems to us that this may be the type of document that will be typically requested if a person is already been interviews.
So if you or your family member abroad has already been interviewed, be prepared to obtain these type of document.
