Other than the Family Based Immigration Visas, the U.S has another class of visas for families. These are the Immediate Relative Visas. While the family visas are utilized for both U.S natives and Lawful Permanent Residents (LPR), the close relative visas are for U.S natives only.
What are Immediate Relative Visas?
The close relative visas are for U.S residents to join with relatives who live out of the nation. This just incorporates life partners, kids, and guardians. Other relatives, for example, kin, grandparents, or cousins don't qualify and can't qualify for these visas.
With an immediate relative visa, the relative gets a Green Card. This implies they can move to the U.S for all time and live there. They can take admission ina school or get a new line of work without requiring an Employment Authorization Document (EAD). They can also possess property in the U.S, get a driver's permit, and travel all through the nation for lifetime.
The greatest advantage of the immediate relative visas is that they don't have a yearly restrictions. Different visas, for example, family and work ones have the yearly limits. This expands processes and wait times for candidates. The immediate relative visa don't have this drawback and you want to unite with your family in the U.S this the great way of doing that.
The U.S. native files a petition, and each close relative must have a different appeal – the I-130.
At the point when the request is endorsed by USCIS in the US, the USCIS will send you a notice of endorsement, a Form I-797. In the meantime they will also transfer the affirmed appeal to the National Visa Center (NVC), which will set up the case for the meeting. NVC will contact both solicitor and candidate with solicitations for documentation; if NVC does not hear anything inside one year, it will end the case. So please make sure to keep your contact data and the candidate's contact data current.
Certain documents are expected of any IV candidate; see the document rules. You can send photocopies to NVC instead of the firsts, however you will in any case need to convey the first reports to the meeting. NVC still needs the first Affidavit of Help, not a photocopy.
At the point when NVC has gathered the majority of the required archives and the Affidavit of Support, they will advance the case to Consulate for the meeting and adjudication. NVC plans all close relative meetings, and will contact the candidate with the meeting date and time.
All candidates, irrespective of the age, must appear for the interview of immigrant visa. Consular officers decides the eligibility of the applicant visa request.
