Helping You With Your Visa Interview
Consular processing refers to the procedure in which visa applications are made and processed outside the country at a U.S. embassy or consulate. The process allows potential U.S. immigrants to apply for a visa even if they are not in the country yet. For many families, consular processing is the best option to reunite family members and obtain a green card or an immigrant visa.

The Benefits Of Consular Processing
Although the workflow is a bit more complicated than filing in the U.S., consular processing is an efficient and convenient choice for certain prospective immigrants. On average, consular processing takes anywhere between five and 13 months. This timeframe is considerably shorter than the average AOS (adjustment of status) application and adjudication process, which call for one to two years.
Why Hire A Consular Processing Attorney
Though consular processing is a convenient option for many individuals living abroad, the process can be difficult to traverse. An experienced and knowledgeable immigration attorney from our firm can help clarify the requirements and advise you on how to proceed every step of the way.
Important details to keep in mind:
- Decisions made by a consular officer are often not eligible for review
- You must disclose any potential ineligibilities, such as a criminal history or a previous visa overstay
- Your case may be prolonged due to administrative processing delays
Lawyers are generally not able to be present with you during a consular interview, but we can help you prepare for the interview and explain what you can expect from it. With our help, your chances of a successful petition increase. Our team is here to answer any questions and address any concerns you may have throughout your case. We have helped thousands of clients navigate this process and we look forward to serving you and your family members in order to attain entry into the United States.
