This article is in continuation to the article that was written under the same title and introduction.
Irrefutably, United States of America is still enjoying the unwavering preference of every eye filled with the dreams of a sumptuous career. Its immigration counters are still flooding with immigrants and all immigration lawyers NYC firms are as busy as bee with immigration applications. In my previous article, I mentioned an extract of an open discussion pertaining to Special Immigrant Visa for Translators and Interpreters (Iraqi and Afghan), held between a client and a lawyer.
In this article, I will be continuing with the procedural details for the discussed visa.
Lawyer: Let us start with the procedure now. The first step towards your brother’s SIV approval is, “petition”. We will be filling a petition with USCIS (Nebraska Service Center). To file this petition, we need a form I- 360, which can be downloaded from the official web portal of USCIS. Along with this application, we need to annex few other documents such as:
Copy of your brother’s passport (Date of Birth and Nationality Proofs with translations, if not in English)
Work proofs – documentation evidencing that your brother served the cited departments (Mentioned in Part 1)
Evidence of Background check – conducted by US Armed Force or COM.
Letter of Recommendation – as mentioned in Part 1 (Letter from General in the Army, Air Force, or Marine Corps; Admiral, Rear Admiral in the Navy; or the Chief of Mission in Baghdad or Kabul.
Client: Is there any particular format for “letter of recommendation?”
Lawyer: No, there is no such format, but the letter must mention below cited things:
The tenure of your brother’s service
Information concerning his security clearance
And last but not least, the recommendation
Client: A friend of mine told me that the postal address has to be an American Address. Why is it so?
Lawyer: The USCIS department cannot send mails outside America, so postal address must be an American one. It would be better, if you can take care of your brothers’ mails.
Client: After approval, what is next?
Lawyer: After the USCIS Nebraska Service Center is done with its assessments, they will forward his approval to NVC and then NVC will revert back with the visa status update.
But to make it happen in correct way, you would need the lawful assistance from a professional and reputed immigration lawyers NYC firm.
