Consular Processing

Consular ProcessingAn individual who is the beneficiary of an approved immigrant visa petition and has an immigrant visa number immediately available (i.e. priority date is current) may apply at a U.S. Department of State consulate abroad for an immigrant visa in order to come to the United States and be admitted as a permanent resident. This process is called “consular processing.” Once the individual enters the United States with an immigrant visa, he or she is a lawful permanent resident.

This is an option if the individual is not in the United States or if adjustment of status to permanent resident is not available.

An individual who is the beneficiary of an approved non-immigrant visa petition and is outside of the United States will have to apply at a U.S. Department of State consulate abroad for a non-immigrant visa in order to enter the United States.
