Hopefully this is posted in the right spot. Helping a friend. He has an immigrant visa interview scheduled. The NVC completed his domestic pre-processing. He is applying for an ew-other workers visa. He has a wife and kids. It's employer sponsored. Main question is, how long will he have to wait before he can return? He is going to CDJ, Ciudad Juarez. Someone told him a couple weeks. Others said 10 years. Someone else said that he must get a pardon letter for being here illegally. Is that true and where would he get it?
