Expert help. No hidden costs. One-time payment

Do you want to live with your parent(s) in the United States?

Even if borders are in the way, your family should not be split. If you are a U.S. citizen and you are planning to bring your parents from another country to live (and work) in the United States, you need to obtain the IR5 Parent visa. The IR5 Parent visa allows you to bring your foreign-born parents to the U.S. as permanent residents.

However, the visa process is quite complicated and time-consuming. Even though you understand all the requirements and procedures, you should be aware that the outcome depends on your personal situation and can vary on a case-to-case basis. Incomplete information, insufficient evidence, and legal obstacles often lead to long processing times, and even visa rejection.

VisaExpress is here to change this, offer you a hassle-free experience, and make sure you get your visa as quickly as possible.

Here’s what you need to know:

Although family sponsorship seems simple and straightforward, the hassle of paperwork and complicated official procedures make the entire process time-consuming. Moreover, your U.S. visa application may be delayed and even denied because of common mistakes and/or incomplete supporting evidence. To avoid these costly risks, get peace of mind, and have your visa issued in a timely manner, we recommend benefiting from the services of immigration lawyers and U.S. visa experts.

Please note that separate applications must be submitted for each family member.

As a petitioner, you must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen.
  • Be at least 21 years old.
  • Live in the U.S. and have a valid U.S. address.
  • Meet the income requirement.
  • Both you and your parent(s) must prove your relationship through a valid birth certificate.

As a beneficiary, your parent(s) must:

  • Be a resident of a foreign country.

Here’s how to get your IR5 Parent visa:

The IR5 Parent visa process is complex and it usually takes between 8 and 12 months to go through all the steps.

1. Petition for Alien Relative

2. USCIS Review

3. Immigrant Visa Application

4. National Visa Centre Review

5. Medical Examination

6. Embassy Interview

7. Visa Granted

8. Citizenship or Green Card Granted

To get the IR5 Parent visa, you, as the sponsoring child, will be required to fill out your Petition for Alien Relative and file it with the United States Citizenship & Immigration Service. The process varies depending on where your parent(s) live(s). If they are filling from outside the U.S., their case will be handled by their local Embassy or Consulate. In case they are filing from within the U.S., they will need to file for adjustment of status.

If your parent(s) is/are filing from outside the U.S., after the Petition for Alien Relative is approved, they will be required to fill out an immigration visa application. Once this application is submitted, their case is handed over to the National Visa Center for additional review. The NVC may require more information or supporting evidence. Once the NVC decides that your application is meeting the rules and standards, it will be forwarded to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate closest to your parent(s).

If your parent(s) already entered the U.S. on a valid visa, they can apply using adjustment of status. After they submit the Application for Adjustment for Status, USCIS will mail them a date, time, and location for the biometric appointment your parent(s) will have to attend.

Your parent(s) will be required to attend a face-to-face interview in the U.S. Embassy or Consulate even if they are applying using adjustment of status. During the interview, your parent(s) will answer a series of questions to prove that their relationship with you is genuine. It usually takes 5 to 15 minutes. You might also be required to present additional information. You might learn the decision on whether or not your visa is approved at the end of the interview.

Once your parent(s) is/are in the United States, USCIS will mail their green card to their U.S. address.

Should you need case-specific legal counsel, we are happy to connect you to our partner lawyers.

Yes. In most cases, in order to get your U.S. visa approved, you need to pay the MRV fee, schedule and attend your Embassy interview. However, under certain circumstances, interview requirements can be waived for some nonimmigration visa applicants, but you will still need to pay the MRV fee.

Interview waiver based on age

  • under 14 years of age; or
  • over 79 years of age

Visa renewal

  • The interview may be waived if you want to renew a visa that is still valid or expired less than a year ago, and if that particular visa is in the same classification (same visa class and same category).

The U.S. government-mandated fee is payable whether or not a visa is issued. The MRV fee is non-refundable and non-transferable. The application fee is non-refundable and non-transferable as well. We offer expert review, processing, and assistance for your application to boost your chance of approval.

If you need to stay in the U.S. for more than your student visa validity, you must request an extension before your visa expires. An “overstay” can result in a denial of a future visa and/or you may be removed (deported) from the United States. Schedule an appointment and get professional advice from our U.S. immigration lawyers and visa experts.

If you plan to study for 6 months or less and to attend a part-time and not towards a degree program, you can enter the U.S. with a visitor visa. Having a visitor visa allows you to take a short recreational course of study. This course must not be for credit toward a degree or academic certificate. Learn more about visitor visas.

Even though the F1 Student visa is not the straight path to immigration, you may be able to work in the U.S. after you graduate from a SEVP-approved school. You will be expected to leave the United States after you graduate, but there is the possibility to apply to a post-completion Optional Practical Training (OPT). This will allow you to work part-time or full-time in a role that must be directly related to your major area of study for up to 12 months. You may also be eligible to petition for the H1B visa and request a change of status.
We advise you to contact an immigration lawyer who can help you figure out the best course of action. Schedule an appointment and get professional advice from our U.S. immigration lawyers and visa experts.

The SEVIS Fee is mandated by Congress to support the program office and the automated system that keeps track of students and exchange visitors and ensures that they maintain their status while in the United States. Each student is responsible for paying this fee to SEVP.

All applicants, including children, are required to pay the Machine Readable Visa (MRV) fee to initiate their U.S. visa application. This U.S. government-mandated fee is payable whether or not a visa is issued. The MRV fee is non-refundable and non-transferable.
The MRV fee is not included in the price for our review, processing, support, and concierge services. It is a separate fee that you will need to pay in order to schedule and attend your Embassy interview. Your personal visa expert will offer support with all the information you need and help you schedule your interview on the first available date.
