I've applied for US Immigration on base of my parents and form is Form I-130, Immigrant Petition for Relative, Fiance(E), or Orphan. and Form Type is Permanent resident filling for an unmarried son or daughter over 21 I applied on start of 2015 and Approved on June 2015. I also saw on this website current processing date which is case inquiry date in this website as shown in picture . So I want to know following question

  • When I'll get final confirmation and start process for my Visa to US
  • What is the speed of case Inquiry date, as for my case its around 10months behind current October 16, 2014 but I don't know how long this will take to come to June 2015

The processing times is no longer relevant because you said your I-130 has already been approved. The processing times are for how long the particular application (in your case I-130) takes to approve, but yours has already been approved.

You need to wait until a visa number becomes available for your priority date and category before you can proceed to the next step. The I-130 being approved by itself does not allow you to do anything. Which priority dates (for family-based immigration, the priority date is the date the I-130 was filed) have a visa number available is published each month in the visa bulletin. An unmarried over-21 child of a permanent resident is in the F2B category, and currently visa numbers are only available in that category for priority dates in Apr 2011 for people born in most countries (in 1996 and 2006 for people born in Mexico and the Philippines, respectively). You can use this to estimate how long it will take before a visa number will become available. If the wait remains the same, and you weren't born in Mexico or the Philippines, you can expect a visa number to become available for your priority date around 2022.

  • Thanks for your answer. I'm an Indian. can you tell me difference between FINAL ACTION DATES FOR FAMILY-SPONSORED PREFERENCE CASES And DATES FOR FILING FAMILY-SPONSORED VISA APPLICATIONS – Aleem Apr 12 '18 at 19:26
  • @Aleem Where do you see those options? – mkennedy Apr 13 '18 at 18:22
  • @mkennedy: the visa bulletin for each month – user102008 Apr 14 '18 at 0:17
  • @Aleem: If you are doing Consular Processing abroad, the consulate will start processing your case around when the Date for Filing passes your priority date, but they cannot finally issue you the immigrant visa until a month when the Final Action Date is past your priority date. – user102008 Apr 14 '18 at 0:18
  • @user102008 I've just seen Visa Bulletin, it mentioned that in the last process of Final Action Date For Family Sponsor reference date is 01JUN14 for India Column, so should I consider that only 1 year is left as already explained my case on above. travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/legal/visa-law0/… – Aleem Oct 9 '19 at 8:57
