Thank you for your reply, I’ve looked up the laws granting automatic citizenship at birth and I falsely believed my daughter wasn’t included. Slightly complicates getting back but we have a...

My daughter’s American citizenship hasn’t been established yet so she’s only a British citizen right now, thus she’s eligible for an ESTA. I’m thankful for your advice but I wasn’t looking for an...

Re: Covid 19 Travel/Immigration to USA - please check here and ask questions

Re: DCF London Processing

The petition timeframe is 90 days but ours has been approved in about 60 days since filing. I'm wondering about the number of weeks until the Embassy gets in touch about the next steps.

Re: DCF London Processing

The I-130 approval letter we just got through the mail said the Embassy would be in touch within 5 weeks, instead of the 8 weeks that's usually quoted. Can we read into this? 5 weeks would be 17 June...

Re: DCF London Processing

Just as os306 says, plus I have most of the paperwork ready to go for the interview so it'll be a case of getting an appointment for both the medical and interview. Hard to tell how far out those...
