by in Immigration

There are basically two different types of family-based immigration visas. These are immediate relatives and family preference based categories. The laws and rules governing the process by which these visas can be obtained are provided by United States immigration law. The most important of which is the Immigration and Nationality Act (“INA”).

The first and most readily accessible kind of family-based immigration visa are Immediate Relative Immigrant Visas. The most attractive facet of these visas is that they are unlimited, meaning that there is no cap on how many immediate relative immigrant visas can be issued. This visa category is based on a close family relationship with a United States citizen described which classifies as an Immediate Relative (IR) relationship. The amount of immigrants in this categories has no annual limit. Immediate relative visa qualifiers are:

  • IR-1: The Husband or wife of a U.S. Citizen;
  • IR-2: The children of U.S. Citizens who are unmarried and under the age or 21;
  • IR-3: Orphans who are adopted abroad by a U.S. Citizen;
  • IR-4: Orphan who will be adopted in the U.S. by a U.S. citizen;
  • IR-5: Parents of U.S. Citizens who are at least 21 years old.
