Consular Processing

What is Consular Processing?

Consular Processing refers to the procedure in which foreign nationals apply for immigrant visas (permanent resident status) at a United States embassy or consulate outside the U.S.

Procedure:

The USCIS forwards the approved immigrant petition to the National Visa Center (NVC). When an immigrant visa number becomes available, the NVC will send a packet to the applicant, which forms must be filled out and returned to the NVC with the required fees.

Once payment has been received, the NVC will send form DS-230 Part I to the applicant for completion. Once that form has been returned to the NVC, the NVC will send form DS-230 Part II along with a list of documents that should be brought to the consular appointment. The applicant must attend the appointment at the designated U.S. consulate abroad.
