Marietta, GA asked in Immigration Law for Georgia

Q: Petition for Nephew.

When I file an immigration petition for my brother in 2007 as an American citizen than my nephew was 15 years old. Now when I got the petition approved recently my nephew is 28 years old and single. Is he still going to be qualified to get an immigration visa with my brother?

How long is the petition is valid since the immigration visa ban is in effect for 60 days seems it might be extended in the future. I appreciate your advice.

Thank you

A: The sibling petition that you filed on behalf of your brother will not yield an immigrant visa for at least 13 to 22 years depending on the country of origin. With that in mind, your nephew may “age out” by the time the immigrant visa becomes available.
