Family-Based Immigrant Visa Categories:

Immediate Relatives of US Citizens. A spouse, parent, or unmarried child under the age of 21 is an "immediate relative." Upon approval, immediate relatives of a US citizen are issued a visa and allowed to immigrate.

Applicants for family-based immigrant visas other than those for an immediate relative of a US citizen are assigned to the following preference categories:

  • First Preference - Unmarried Adult (over 21) Children of US Citizens.
  • Second Preference - Spouses and Unmarried Children of Legal Permanent Residents.
  • Third Preference - Married Children of US Citizens.
  • Fourth Preference - Siblings of Adult US Citizens.

Fiancée or Fiancé Visas. Temporary, nonimmigrant fiancée visas are available for foreign nationals to travel to the United States to marry a US citizen. Once in the U.S., the couple has 90 days to marry. Upon marrying, the U.S. citizen may sponsor the foreign national for permanent residency.
