Processing At US Embassies Or Consulates
Consular processing is when a foreign national applies for a 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 US. 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.
