US-Based Filings of I-601 Waivers to Begin in March

Rate this Entry

Just published in the Federal Register. USCIS promised a rule by the end of 2012, but this is close enough and very welcome news. Here's the quick take from USCIS:



This
process change allows certain immediate relatives of U.S. citizens who are
physically present in the United States and are seeking permanent residence to
apply for and receive provisional unlawful presence waivers before
departing the U.S. for consular processing of their immigrant visa applications
abroad. This new process will significantly reduce the time that U.S. citizens
are separated from their immediate relatives while those family members go
through the immigrant visa process to become permanent residents.  


Please
note that this new process is not yet in effect and USCIS will not accept any applications until
March 4, 2013. This final rule is separate and distinct from the Form I-601 centralization process.
