JUST FIND YOUR ANSWERS BELOW:

I am a US citizen; if I file an immigration application for my siblings, what would the wait time for my brother or sister to come here to the USA?

As of March 2015, the wait time for the F4 category, i.e. brother’s and sister of adult US Citizen, is about 12 years.

Can my Brother or Sister live in the USA while waiting for their visa to become available?

The Siblings can not live in the USA during their wait time unless they have another valid immigration status such as H1, H4,  F1 and L1 etc.

I am a US Citizen. Do I have to file a separate petition for my sibling’s spouse and kids ?

You don’t have to file a separate petition for your sibling’s spouse and kids. You can’t file for those. The spouse and kids of siblings of US Citizen would be the derivative beneficiary of the primary beneficiary. A derivative beneficiary is an alien who cannot be directly petitioned for but who can follow to join or accompany the principal beneficiary based on a married or parent-child relationship.

Can I sponsor my siblings for Tourist Visa after filing the Immigration petition for them?

Yes. You can sponsor anybody you want for a tourist visa. The sponsorship for Tourist Visa is the undertaking to assure the U.S. Government that the person(s) named will not become a public charge in the United States.

Can they travel to the USA on a tourist visa during their wait time?

Yes. The siblings of US Citizen can visit as a tourist during their wait time.
