Family members of U.S. citizens have experienced extensive delays as a result of President Trump's prior proclamation that halted processing of all immigrant visas. With President Biden's new announcement, U.S. consulates will begin processing immigrant visas that are already pending.
There will be an extensive back-log and unfortunately, family members of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents will likely still experience substantial delay.
