Consular Processing allows a beneficiary of an approved immigration petition, who is abroad and has an immigrant visa number immediately available, to apply for an immigrant visa at a U.S. consulate overseas.

The National Visa Center (NVC) regulates this area of law.   Their duties include the following:  

  • to notify the petitioner and beneficiary when the visa petition is received;
  • to notify the petitioner and beneficiary when an immigrant visa number is about to become available;
  • to notify the petitioner and beneficiary of when they must submit immigrant visa processing fees; and
  • to notify the petitioner and beneficiary of when they must submit supporting documentation. 

Once a visa becomes available, the U.S. Consulate in your country will assist you with the following:

  • contact you to schedule you for an interview;
  • complete the processing of your application; and
  • determine whether you are eligible for an immigrant visa.

If the application is approved, you will be issued an immigrant visa, which is good for only six months.  The visa will expire if you do not enter the U.S. within that period of time. 

NOTE: If you are located within the United States, you do not have to apply through consular processing.  Instead, you may apply for an adjustment of status. 

Consular processing can be a lengthy and confusing procedure.  At Gupta & Trujillo, we will work closely with you to work through any legal issues that may be important in your case.  In addition, we can file the necessary forms and help you collect all documents requires, as well as complete all NVC packets.   We will respond to any government requests for additional information and keep you informed at every stage of the process.
