Immigrant Visa
Family-based immigration. The Immigration and Nationality Act allows for the immigration of foreigners to the United States based on relationship to a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident.

Employment-based immigration. The Immigration and Nationality Act provides a yearly minimum of 140,000 employment-based immigrant visas which are divided into five preference categories. They may require a labor certification from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), and the filing of a petition with the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services in the Department of Homeland Security (BCIS).

Attorney Representation
Attorneys may not accompany their clients inside the embassy. The best way to address a client's legal issue is in writing, either carried in by the applicant to the interview, or by mail, fax, or e-mail.
