    How long does it take after filing for a US citizen to bring brothers, sisters and parents to the U.S?

    Does it matter the country the citizen was natutalized from?

    It depends on country specific also. If a USC files for his/her parents it falls under IR category which is very fast moving and always have unlimited Visas available. If documents are filed in the United States it takes about 6 - 12 months for parents to come in the U.S. but if documents are filed directly at U.S. Embassy then it takes about 3 - 6 months only.
    As far siblings are concern it is long wait everywhere from 12 - 18 YEARs.
    Sponsor your parents and then let them sponsor your siblings that will be much faster than your sponsorship.Good luck.

    Thanks Umesh, but what if the siblings are over 18 years old?

    Also, once parent gets sponsored they get green card correct? Which means they will wait 5 years to become citizen so as to sponsor siblings.

    Is that correct?

    If the siblings are under 21 years then parents with GC will be able to sponsor them. By the time parents will become citizen their petition would have already approved and will come quick under IR or F1.
    Good luck

    Umesh,

    where does the F1 come in here?

    Please advice which is the shorter route if the siblings are over 18.

    My parents came to the US by the sibling's petition. It was filed at the Vermont Service Center and all the process took less than 11 years.
