Types of Family-Based Immigration Visas

As previously mentioned, there are several different types of family-based immigration visas. The type of visa you will need to apply for will depend on the relationship between yourself and the person you wish to bring to the United States/the person who is petitioning on your behalf.

In the U.S., the different types of family-based visas include:

  • Immediate Relative Visas (IR): Available to “immediate relatives” of a U.S. citizen, including a spouse, unmarried child under the age of 21, orphan to be adopted or already adopted abroad by a U.S. citizen, or parent of a U.S. citizen who is at least 21 years of age
  • Family Preference Visas (F): Available to certain family members of U.S. citizens and some specific family members of lawful permanent residents (Green Card holders)

Within the Family Preference (F) category, there are several available visas including:

  • F1 Visas (Family First Preference): Available to unmarried sons/daughters of U.S. citizens, as well as their minor children
  • F2 Visas (Family Second Preference): Available to spouses, minor children, and unmarried children over the age of 21 of lawful permanent residents
  • F3 Visas (Family Third Preference): Available to married sons/daughters of U.S. citizens, as well as their minor children and/or spouses
  • F4 Visas (Family Fourth Preference): Available to siblings of U.S. citizens who are at least 21 years of age, as well as their minor children and/or spouses

While IR visas are unlimited, F visas are limited, meaning they may be somewhat more difficult to obtain. Additionally, if you are a U.S. citizen, you may bring a foreign national fiancé or spouse to the United States through the K-1 fiancé or K-3 spouse visa. Diamante Law Group can help you understand your legal options and navigate the family-based immigration system.
