The Family Visa program is designed to allow immediate family members of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident to attempt to gain lawful permanent resident status. The family visa program will still have many of the same hurdles as other paths to lawful permanent residence. Unlike those other paths, however, the family visa program has a larger allotment and a priority system that can work in the applicant’s favor.

Family Visa Allotments

The family visa program has one of the higher annual allotments when it comes to visa programs. According to U.S. Center for Immigration Services, the annual limit for family visas is usually 226,000. This means that just under a quarter of a million applicants will be granted lawful permanent resident status through the family visa program.

Family Visa Priorities

Since there are usually more applicants than visas, each year the U.S. Center for Immigration Services uses a priority system to determine which applicants should receive first pick of the visas. The top priority of the family visa program is unmarried children of U.S. citizens. Their second priority is spouses and unmarried children of lawful permanent residents. After these groups, married children and siblings over the age of 21 are selected. This system puts the families of U.S. citizens at the top as well as unmarried individuals.

Family Visa Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is an immigrant visa?

An immigrant visa allows an individual to come to the United States. An immigrant visa is different from non-immigrant visas in that it allows the individual to stay for a longer period of time and may also allow the individual to rent property, apply for jobs, or otherwise ingrain themselves into U.S. society.

2. Is h1b an immigrant visa?

No. The H1B visa is intended for nonimmigrant aliens who will be temporarily hired as “workers in specialty occupations or as fashion models of distinguished merit and ability.” Workers in specialty occupation are defined as individuals performing jobs that require at least a bachelor’s degree and the application of “a body of highly specialized knowledge.”

3. How long does it take to get a visa?

There are many factors that impact how long it takes to receive a visa. One of the biggest is what kind of visa is being sought. There are a limited number of visas granted each year and depending on how competitive the path to receive a visa is an where an applicant falls on the priority scale it may take more or less time to receive a visa. On average, a visa application may take years to complete. 

4. How much does it cost to get a visa?

Depending on the avenue chosen for receiving a visa, it can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. This also assumes that no outside help is used to ensure the applications and interviews are as good as possible. When taking into account the consulting fees and other miscellaneous fees associated with immigration the cost can balloon to thousands of dollars.
