Q: I want to sponsor my 24 year old Korean step daughter. How long foes it take from korea to get f1 visa for her.
Her mother who is Korean and I married before her daughter turned 18. I am trying to determine about how long it might take to get a family Visa because I read some countries like Mexico take years. Does Korea take a long time?
A combination of factors exist, but there is a visa quota, so the worldwide Family based first preference petitions are backlogged at December 1, 2014.
You can Google for the Visa Bulletin, but you are not affected by the quotas unless you file and the petition is approved. The priority date is the date that USCIS receives the petition provided the petition is approved.
The beneficiary of an approved visa petition may be found to be inadmissible. Should this happen, the State Department is obligated to revoke the petition.
A: If she’s unmarried it will take less time. You can go to the department of state visa bulletin board and get the current processing times. You simply look up the priority dates which for the cases that are now current based upon your category. This will tell you how long it will take.
