Under U.S. Immigration law, a citizen or permanent resident (green card holder) can sponsor the immigration of certain family members to the United States. The family green card process begins with the citizen or permanent resident petitioning for a visa on behalf of their family member. A citizen can request a visa for:
A brother or sister
A child under the age of 21
A husband or wife
An unmarried child over 21 years old and any of their children
Any married child and their children
A green card holder can petition for a visa on behalf of a husband or wife, and any unmarried children. In most cases, visas are issued based on annual quotas, the petitioner’s home country and relationship to the family member. If you are a U.S. citizen, immediate family members can be issued a visa as soon as the application process is completed.
