Did you know...?
There are two types of family-based immigrant visas or petitions:
Immediate Relative – these visas are based on a close family relationship with a U.S. citizen, such as a spouse, child or parent. There is no limitation for the number of immigrants in this category per year.
Family Preference – these visas are for specific, more distant, family relationships with a U.S. citizen and some specified relationships with a Permanent Resident (Green Card holder). The number of immigrants in these categories is limited each year.
