Immigrant Visa Processing At US Embassies Or Consulates
Consular processing occurs when a foreign national applies for an immigrant visa at a U.S. embassy or consulate while outside of the United States. Prior to applying for a visa at an embassy or consulate, an immigration petition must have been filed on the person’s behalf. This petition may be filed by a family member or employer depending upon the basis for immigrating to the U.S. Other types of special or humanitarian-based visas allow a person to apply on his/her own behalf. Most applications will require a beneficiary to wait a period of time before a current visa number is available. This can sometimes take many years. Once a current visa is available, the beneficiary will need to attend an interview at a U.S. embassy or consulate abroad. If the visa is approved, the beneficiary will be allowed to immigrate to the U.S. David Ware. Providing immigration solutions in greater New Orleans and all of Louisiana.
