Family based immigration allows certain U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents to sponsor their foreign-born families. There are two ways family-based immigrants are admitted to the United States, through the family preference system or as an immediate relative of a U.S. citizen.
Immediate relative visas are not subject to numerical limitations. These include:
The following Family Preference visas are subject to numerical limitations:
|First Preference||Unmarried sons and daughters of U.S. citizens, and their minor children, if any|
|Second Preference||Spouses, minor children, and unmarried sons and daughters (age 21 and over) of legal permanent residents|
|Third Preference||Married sons and daughters of U.S. citizens, and their spouses and minor children|
|Fourth Preference||Brothers and sisters of U.S. citizens, and their spouses and minor children, provided the U.S. citizens are at least 21 years of age|
