Consular Processing US Immigrant Visa Process

Learn About US Immigrant Visa Application Process And Documents Checklist

Applying For Immigrant Visa Consular Processing

Consular visa processing is the last step in the process for becoming a permanent resident of the U.S. When the USCIS approves your immigrant petition, it will send the petitioner a notice of approval, Form I-797. The USCIS will also forward the approved petition to the National Visa Center, which will contact the intending immigrant when an immigrant visa number becomes available.

Check My Eligibility

Once an immigrant visa number becomes available, you may apply for an immigrant visa at an American Consulate nearest your residence. Your application must include:

A. DOS Form DS-230, Application for Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration Form

B. USCIS Form I-864, Affidavit of Support (completed by the sponsor). This requirement may not apply to you if you are applying for immigrant visa based on an employment petition

C. Copy of the approval notice sent by the USCIS, if your immigration petition has been approved

D. Copy of the USCIS Form I-130 or the USCIS Form I-140 as filed

E. Evidence that your last residence is in the country where you are applying for your immigrant visa

F. Documents showing your employment information for the last ten years

G. Police certificates from every country where you resided for more than one year since the age of 16
