It takes 6 weeks to receive your green card in the mail once you enter the US.

You have to go back to your own country and apply at the embassy there. Or you will be deported.

Can NOT petition siblings until you become a citizen
Depending on country it is taking 10-17 years

The new immigrant gets the actual "green card" ID about six months after entering the USA on the immigration visa.

Only US citizen can petition for a sibling's immigration, if they earn enough to support self, all dependents, plus the person they sponsor. They must also have a suitable home for the person they sponsor. Depending on citizenship of their sibling, it currently takes 15-25 years before the petition's Priority Date becomes current, and the prospective immigrant gets their interview, etc, for - possibly - an immigration visa to enter the US. They MUST remain in their country until they have been approved for & receive the immigration visa. If they have violated any visa regulations and/or immigration law, don't expect that person to be approved for immigration.
You do NOT "get in America" without first being petitioned by your US-citizen sibling, waiting for visas to become available, and being approved. You have a long wait, and an impossible situation if you commit any visa/immigration violations.

A Green Card holder CANNOT petition for a sibling. Only a US citizen can do that. Waiting time is 12 to 24 years, depending on the country, which you forgot to mention.Source(s): An immigrant from Europe, I live on the American Riviera and work as an attorney in Santa Barbara, California.

Depends where siblings are from. It can take up to 12 to 15 years all depends where they come from. Americans do not hate Europeans.

It took six years for us but America hates Europeans. But that was marriage, not sibling. Also, only citizens can sponsor an immigrant.
