Consular processing the procedure an individual who is living outside of the United States of America undertakes to apply for an immigration visa (green card) through a U.S. Embassy or consulate in a foreign country. Once approved, this allows the applicant to travel to the United States and stay as a permanent resident. Consular processing is a great option for those who are looking for family-based immigration options.

In 2013, United States immigration law was changed to allow certain immigrant visa applicants, with immediate relatives who are U.S. citizens, the opportunity to apply for the Waiver of Unlawful Presence status. “Unlawful presence” is the immigration status of people who are living in the United States without a valid immigration status (in the country illegally). This status can bar individuals from inadmissibility, forcing them to wait abroad and apply for an immigrant visa. These “bars” from entering the country are either for three years or 10 years.
Those who have been barred from entering the United States but wish to return to the country as legal immigrants may apply for a Waiver of Unlawful Presence. The applicant will need to fill out an unlawful presence waiver form in order to apply for residency or a green card.
