  1. Thank you for the information, i have a question though,
    I am an Eb3 beneficiary and i still haven't got my visa because i was denied under the previous presidential proclamation, in this video it says here that they would prioritize those worker essential to the American food supply. My question is am i included to those essential workers since my petitioner petitioned me as a farm worker? Will this means that we can ask the embassy to prioritize my case since I'm going to be a farm worker tbere in the US? Thank you and i hope for your response. GOD BLESS and stay healthy 😊

  3. Last 8 months my husband is in india, he was waiting for his visa and once he get a visa we got a travel ban. Government should allow family members to travel. My son asking me every day “ when my dad will be here?”.

  4. How about passing that law Biden introduced in February? Where the relatives whose documents have been approved and sitting at the NVC “documentary qualified” or suspended interview, can travel and wait for their green card on the US territory. Just like the ones who are undocumented… However since some families chose to do everything legally, how about giving them that right?! Instead of punishing them for going through the process! Also HOW about not punishing the Russian people and playing with their lives for the political games the two governments chose to engage in. You just closed the embassy period, not giving any visas IN THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE? PEOPLE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR YEARS! You want them to wait for a few years more??! How is this fair!?

  5. You have no right keeping families apart no matter what is going on in the world. We need to be with our family members!!! Stop bringing employment based immigrants into the USA when there aren’t enough jobs for current Americans!! Get families back together FIRST!!! Spouses and children/parents should be TOP PRIORITY!!!! Think of how YOU in charge would feel if you were separated from your spouse or your children!!! People already married should be approved before fiancé’s. Before students. Before employment visas, before children. Before ALL!!! Then children. Then fiancé’s and then whomever else you feel. This is getting ridiculous

  6. Hoping they will open international for British people, my daughter misses her father. She can’t travel alone and I need to go with her but I’m a British and I know US wont allow British to enter there..They separated 2years from now 😢too sad but true.. praying 🙏

  7. Us government started embassy since fab 2021. They just give preference to us citizens spouses and k1 categories… spouses of green card holder visa services pending since November 2019 , so in which category we can count? Even this people don’t able to know what to do next… when they will start visa process for green card holder’s spouses… I didn’t feel government is caring n trying for bringing beloved people close to their family.

  8. My wife is stuck in Vietnam. They aren't even being offered the vaccine, and if they were offered it, they are all afraid to take it because so many things in Vietnam are a scam and fake.
    So, seems like I will never see her again until this god forsaken virus is done fucking with our planet.

  9. I was a keen optimistic to to travel to Canada I tried all I could to get a visa to Canada for I failed for 2 years, A medical doctor based in Canada referred me to Mr Jason wood he really guided me and I was issued a visa on January.

  10. My husband got his visa approved, but now the embassy says that there is a worldwide technical issue affecting visa systems and preventing visa printing. Does anybody know about this situation? I haven't found any information online. I appreciate any help, thanks.
