Family Preference Visa Categories

Although the processes look slightly different, it is possible to complete the family preference visa process and obtain a green card while in the United States or to undergo consular processing while residing in another country. Under U.S. immigration law, family members fall into four preference categories while waiting for a visa number:

  • First Preference - This category includes adult children over the age of 21 who are unmarried.
  • Second Preference - Individuals who are spouses of legal permanent residents, who are unmarried children of legal permanent residents, or who are the sons and daughters of legal permanent residents' children
  • Third Preference - This category includes sons and daughters of U.S. citizens who are married, along with their children (under 18) and spouses.
  • Fourth Preference - This last category consists of siblings of adult U.S. citizens, along with their children (under 18) and spouses.
