Will siblings of U.S. citizens still be eligible for family-based green cards?
No. The Senate immigration bill will eliminate visas for brothers and sisters of U.S. citizens within 18 months of when it goes into law. It will also
strike visas for children of U.S. citizens who are married and over 31 years old.
Are there any changes to family-based visas??
But 18months after the law takes effect, visas for siblings of citizens and permanent residents would be eliminated, as would visas for adult married children over 30
My question is : could you explain more, what will happen for F4 and F3 family visa... if the bill pass?
IF the bill passes, and IF the language remains the same, there would no longer be immigrant visas for siblings, and only married adult sons and daughters of USC who are 30 years old or younger would qualify for an immigrant visa.
BUT, as my colleagues said, this is only a bill. Nothing is said and done until, AND ONLY UNTIL the bill is approved by Congress and signed by the President. Until then, it's best not no be hung up on its text too much.
