The aim of this new program is to avoid having immigrant visa applicants who are spouses and sons and daughters of U.S. citizens be separated from their families for months or even years while their waivers are pending.
Now, these family members will obtain their waivers before departing the U.S., will be interviewed abroad, and will then return to their families in the U.S. within a shorter period of time.
While a step in the right direction, navigating through the eligibility requirements, understanding the DOs and DONTs, and completing the application (Form I-601A along with supporting documentation and evidence) still remains fairly complex. If you would like more information on this process, please reach out to us. We would be happy to be #YourImmigrationPartner.
