Consular Processing is the process where an individual who is the beneficiary of an approved immigrant petition and has an immigrant visa number immediately available, applies at a U.S. Department of State Embassy or Consulate abroad for an immigrant visa in order to come to the United States and be admitted as a permanent resident.

The United States immigration process is often complicated. And this is especially true for people outside of the country trying to get in. Processing immigration petitions for individuals outside the United States may require coordination between several agencies and departments and often requires a citizen or permanent resident sponsor. Our lawyers understand how the process works and can help individuals get their petitions processed quickly and effectively.

To efficiently navigate consular processing, you must be a member of an eligible immigrant category and file the proper documentation for that category. The most common petitions are for family-based and employment based immigration. Refugees, those seeking asylum, some beneficiaries of humanitarian programs may also file an immigrant petition. Our team can assist in gathering and filing the required documentation. Getting your application right the first time can significantly expedite the process.
