  • US Immigrant petition - can't do in Japan anymore

    I recently learned of this so I figured I'd throw it out there. Up until August of this year, US citizens could petition for immigrant visas for relatives locally at the embassy. The process took about 2-3 months.

    Now, we must file through a local office in the US along with everyone else petitioning...the process from beginning to end can take 9-11 months! So if you are planning on bringing your Japanese wife to live in the US, plan ahead...far ahead!
