Foreign nationals who have family ties in the United States may be eligible to obtain a Green Card through their family members who have previously gone through the immigration process to obtain permanent residency and/or U.S. citizenship.

Depending on the U.S. relative’s immigration status, family-based immigration should be reviewed from the point of view of two categories: unlimited and limited.

Unlimited category:

     Suitable for the U.S. citizens who wish to file an immigrant visa petition for their immediate relatives (spouse, widow(er) and unmarried children under 21; a parent of a U.S. citizen who is 21+ years old)

Limited category:

     F1 - first preference: suitable for U.S. citizens’ unmarried children and their children;

     F2 - second preference: suitable for Green Card holders’ spouses, underage children and unmarried children over 21;

     F3 - third preference: U.S. citizens’ married children, as well as their spouses and children;

     F4 - fourth preference: U.S. citizens’ siblings, their spouses and children. U.S. citizen must be 21 years of age or older.
