    IR5 entry from India for parents

    Yes it's generic. They are not going to send each and everyone a customized letter. You don't need a letter for medical. You need to schedule an appointment, use that for the medical appointment. Get medical, get PCC, DS260 confirmation page and show up for the interview. Please post your...

    IR5 entry from India for parents

    No. It's generic. But it has verbiage that says you can schedule an appointment. This was in April and don't know if things have changed. Also like I said above, find your congressional Rep and email them also. They'll get in touch with the embassy on ur behalf. Will post response I got from...

    Old parents coming back to US after more than 1 year ( no re- entry permit )

    Someone posted in another thread that as long as it is valid they should try to enter the US with it. At POE, there's a good chance they are let in without any issues. If CBP officer denies do not sign anything to give up the Permanent Residency and they will be given a day to appear before an...

    Did you send an email to mumbai consulate ? Did they send a generic response back ? Which should be enough to schedule an interview OR you could do what I did (Apr'21) in contacting your local Congressman's office and ask them for help in getting information on scheduling for an interview for...

    IR5 entry from India for parents

    That's great to hear. The $225 fee for visa packet is to be paid online before travel to US or at Port of entry? My mom told me she as given a slip which mentioned that.

    My mom got her IR5 approved at Mumbai just now.So the DS260 not edited recently was not an issue at all and was not raised at the interview. She was asked for Birth certificate. Then was asked if she plans to work when in US. My mom said just want to spend time with grandkids and am too old to...

    IR5 entry from India for parents

    Are you sure that is what the date is for the form version? I find it kind of redundant to have it on an an electronic form. Understandable to see it on paper forms or PDFs as many websites would have old versions of forms floating on the web. I thought I edited it back in April 2021 when I had...

    IR5 entry from India for parents

    It was updated in April 2021 as theirs was over a year old and they were supposed to go for an interview in April and then May which got cancelled due to rising covid numbers. The DS260 application says it expires in April 2022. I don't think one needs to worry about the DS260 needed to be...
