Visas for Children, Spouses, Siblings and Parents

You may file an application through either the Immediate Relateives (IR) category or one of the preference categories listed below.

Immediate Relatives

Your family member does not need to wait in line for a visa if you are a U.S. citizen. Immediate relatives include:

  • Spouses of U.S. citizens
  • Unmarried children under 21 of U.S. citizens
  • Parents of U.S. citizens. The petitioner must be 21 or older

Preference Categories

For non immediate relatives the U.S. immigration authorities maintain a priority or preference system that proceeds in the following order:

  1. Unmarried children (21 or older) of U.S. citizens.
  2. 2A–Spouses of permanent legal residents, their unmarried children (under 21).
    2B–Unmarried children (21 and older) of permanent residents.
  3. Married children (any age) of U.S. citizens.
