Qualifications for an Immediate Relative Visa

There are specific eligibility requirements to file for an immediate relative visa on behalf of your family member.

The relative must be a:

  • Spouse
  • Unmarried child under 21 years old
  • Parent (if U.S. citizen is 21 years old or older)

If they are already living in the United States, immediate relatives can apply for a green card after the citizen of the United States files the petition for an immediate relative visa. If the immediate relative is living outside of the United States, the application will be filed through consular processing.
