U.S. Citizenship Eligibility

United States citizens and permanent residents have the opportunity to support their eligible foreign relatives in the pursuit of U.S. citizenship and permanent residency.

This process allows families to stay connected and work towards shared goals of becoming part of the United States.

In order for a foreign relative to become a lawful U.S. permanent resident, the following general criteria must be met:

  1. The foreign national seeking a visa or green card should have a relative who qualifies as a U.S. citizen or a lawful permanent resident. This relative must present evidence of their status, along with documentation proving their relationship to the applicant.
  2. The sponsoring U.S. citizen or permanent resident should provide proof that their financial income extends 125% beyond the poverty line for their whole family, encompassing the applicant too. If the relative’s financial resources do not meet this criterion, they can become a joint sponsor with another relative, or the assets of the applicant can be considered.
  3. If the applicant’s relative is a U.S. citizen, they need to establish that the applicant is their:
    • Child under 21 years old
    • Spouse
    • Unmarried child over 21
    • Married child (any age)
    • Sibling (the sponsoring relative needs to be at least 21 years of age)
    • Parent (the sponsoring relative needs to be at least 21 years of age)
  1. If the applicant’s sponsoring relative is a U.S. permanent resident, they need to demonstrate that the applicant is their:
    • Spouse
    • Unmarried child of any age

Once both the applicant and their relative satisfy these prerequisites, the application process can be initiated.

Options for Immediate Relatives of U.S. Citizens

“Immediate Relatives” refers to the parents, spouses, and children (who are unmarried and under 21 years of age) of a U.S. citizen.

Immediate relatives of a U.S. citizen can immigrate to the United States without any cap on the number of visas distributed in a year, unlike other family members of U.S. citizens and/or permanent residents.

Family Preference Categories

Other relatives of U.S. citizens or permanent residents are assigned into preference categories. Each category is allocated a limited number of immigrants per year for admission into the United States.

Relatives in these categories must wait for an immigrant visa number to be available based on the following preferences:

First Preference: Unmarried, adult children of U.S. citizens. Here, adult means 21 years or over.

Second Preference: Spouses of lawful permanent residents, their unmarried children (of any age), and their children.

Third Preference: Married children of U.S. citizens, their spouses, and their minor children.

Fourth Preference: Siblings of adult U.S. citizens, their spouses, and their minor children.
