Consular processing

Washington, D.C. Consular Processing Lawyer

If you are in the U.S. and wish to obtain an immigrant visa, you do so with an adjustment of status application. If you are outside the U.S., the way to obtain a new status is through consular processing.

Consular processing occurs at a U.S. consular post abroad. A foreign national is eligible for an immigrant visa if he or she meets the requirements stipulated in the Immigration & Nationality Act (INA).

Foreign Immigration Attorney For Northern Virginia And Maryland

An alien is eligible for immigrant visa status under one of two conditions:

  • The individual is the beneficiary of an approved visa petition, which grants family-based immediate relative or preference classification or employment-based preference classification.
  • The individual is a derivative family member — the spouse or an unmarried minor child of preference aliens.

Whether your immigrant status is granted depends on a complex set of circumstances, based on foreign country chargeability and the priority date assigned to the application, determined by the date the application was received.
