Immigrant Visas

Visa

An immigrant visa is required of anyone who wishes to enter the United States to reside there permanently, whether or not that person plans to seek employment in the United States. U.S. immigration law provides for the issuance of immigrant visas in four general categories: immediate relatives, family-based, employment-based, and Diversity Immigrant Visa Program, also known as the “green card” lottery.

The Immigrant Visa Unit is open Monday through Friday. Interviews are only by appointment.

 

Please visit Visa Categories to learn more about the different visa classes.
