Family Based Visa

Welcome to, your trusted partner in navigating the US Family-Based Visa process. US Family-Based Immigrant Visas allow US citizens and lawful permanent residents (green card holders) to sponsor certain family members for immigration to the United States. These visas are designed to promote family reunification and enable close relatives to join their loved ones in the US on a permanent basis.

There are two main categories of US family-based immigrant visas:

Immediate Relative visas and Family Preference visas.

Immediate Relative visas are available for the spouses, parents, and unmarried children under 21 years of age of US citizens. These visas have no numerical limitations and are generally processed more quickly. Family Preference visas, on the other hand, are available for more distant relatives, such as unmarried children over 21 years of age, married children, siblings, and certain other relatives of US citizens and green card holders. These visas are subject to numerical limitations, and the processing time may be longer due to annual visa quotas. To obtain a family-based immigrant visa, the US citizen or green card holder must file a petition on behalf of their eligible family member. The process involves submitting the necessary forms, supporting documentation, and proof of the qualifying family relationship. Once the petition is approved, the family member can proceed with the visa application process, which may involve consular processing if the individual is residing outside the United States.US family-based immigrant visas play a crucial role in keeping families together and allowing eligible relatives to establish permanent residency in the United States.
