  • I-130 process - Vermont center

    I recently acquired citizenship and would like to sponsor my mother. I read
    on the USCIS website regarding the process for first getting a visa number,
    if available, and then applying. Could someone please help me understand
    what this process looks like? How long is the wait for getting a visa
    number in the Vermont processing center?

    Thanks.

      I-130 process - Vermont center

      I did read the info on the USCIS web site. I was more interested in actual
      experience around how long the wait is for getting a Visa number through the
      Vermont processing center.

      thanks.

        I-130 process - Vermont center

        https://egov.immigration.gov/cris/jsps/ptimes.jsp says that immediate
        relative I-130 petitions are taking about 3 and 1/2 months from filing to
        approval at the USCIS Vermont Service Center.

        The VSC does not have anything to do with "getting a visa number."

        The VSC sends the approved petition to the National Visa Center in New
        Hampshire. See
        http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigra...ypes_1309.html. The NVC
        sends out the I-864 processing fee bill, and when the bill is paid, sends
        the I-864 forms and instructions to the petitioner. The NVC then sends out
        the Immigrant Visa fee bill, and when that is paid, sends the Instruction
        Packet to the beneficiary (or agent, if there is one). The beneficiary
        sends the Instruction Packet reply, and then either the NVC or the consular
        post sends the appointment notice to the beneficiary.

        The consular post generally requests a visa number from the State Department
        a little over a month before the interview appointment.

        The time from I-130 approval to the immigrant visa appointment is about 4
        months or more.
