Am I Eligible for a Green Card as a Relative of a U.S. Citizen?

Immediate relatives of a U.S. citizen automatically have a visa number available to them. You may be eligible as a:

  • Spouse
  • Unmarried child under the age of 21
  • Parent
  • Widow, if married for at least two years and widowed within two years of applying.
  • Adopted child, formally adopted prior to age 16
  • Stepchild, if the relationship began before your 18th birthday
  • Stepparent, if the relationship began before the petitioner’s 18th birthday

In other cases, if you are a relative of a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident petitioner, you may still qualify for a visa. You would be subject to the family preference category where you would need to wait for a visa to become available. There is a limited number of relatives who may immigrate in these categories each year, so there is usually a waiting period before a visa number is available.
