Family & Citizenship

Qualifying Family Relationships

Qualifying family relationships are grouped into two main categories – immediate relatives and other close family members. Immediate relatives of United States (U.S.) citizens are given special preferential treatment in that there are no limits on the amount of immediate relatives that may immigrate in the immediate relative category and, as a result, there are no backlogs in the immediate relative category.

Who is considered an immediate relative?

  • Spouses of U.S. Citizens;
  • Children of U.S. Citizens, if the child is unmarried and under 21; and
  • Parents of U.S. Citizens, if the child has attained the age of 21.
