Qualifications for an Immediate Relative Visa

Under U.S. immigration law, “immediate relatives” refer to specific familial relationships with U.S. citizens.

A U.S. citizen can petition for an immediate relative visa on behalf of their:

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

If they are already living in the United States lawfully, immediate relatives can adjust their status to permanent residence once USCIS approves the petition filed by the U.S. citizen. If the immediate relative is living outside of the United States, the application will be filed through consular processing.
