Immigrant Visas

Please Note: Due to high demand, we are currently experiencing delays in administrative processing. Most cases require 3-6 months to complete their administrative processing. However, please understand that this process has no time constraints and may even take longer.

The Consular Section strongly encourages you NOT to buy your tickets or make travel arrangements until after your visa is approved and you have it in hand. The Consular Section cannot guarantee that your visa will be approved and cannot be responsible for the consequences of your decision to buy a non-refundable plane ticket.
