Family Immigration Visas: For family members of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents (green card holders). There are annual limitations to each specific preference category, which is based on the applicant's relationship with the citizen or lawful permanent resident. Family-based preference visas are available to children of U.S. citizens (who are not eligible for an IR visa); spouses, minor children, and unmarried adult children of permanent residents; and siblings of U.S. citizens.
