How Can You Help a Family Member Immigrate to the U.S.?

Not every immigrant visa holder is eligible to take advantage of a family-based visa. Eligibility depends on a number of factors including: 

  • Your individual immigration status
  • Your familial relationship with the individual(s) you want to immigrate to the U.S.
  • Your income

To be eligible to help a family member immigrate, you must be either a:

  • U.S. citizen
  • Permanent resident (Green Card holder)
  • Refugee admitted as a refugee within the past 2 years or granted asylum within the past 2 years

Types of Family-Based Visas

There are two types of family-based visas, and eligible individuals who are at least 21 years of age can sponsor a family member to immigrate to the U.S. The two types of family-based immigrant visas are:

  • Immediate Relative Visa – these visas are based on a close family relationship with a U.S. citizen. U.S. citizens may sponsor their spouses, children, or parents.  
  • Family Preference Visa – these visas are for specific, more distant, family relations of a U.S. citizen and specific relations of a Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR). 

While U.S. citizens can sponsor a spouse, child, parent, or sibling, U.S. LPRs can only petition for their spouse or unmarried children.

Eligible asylees or refugees may sponsor a spouse or unmarried child who was under the age of 21 when the sponsor applied for asylum or refugee status.
