Latest Modifications on Guidance for Family-Based Immigrant Visas

By June 14, 2024June 15th, 2024No Comments

USCIS has updated guidance in the USCIS Policy Manual for family-based immigrant visa petitions (Form I-130 and, in some cases, Form I-360). The update clarifies procedures for correcting approval notice errors, handling requests for consular processing or adjustment of status, and routing approved petitions.

Petitioners filing Form I-130 must provide accurate beneficiary information, including their current address and preference for consular processing or adjustment of status. USCIS will use discretion to decide whether to send petitions to the National Visa Center (NVC) or retain them for adjustment of status processing based on the beneficiary’s location.

The update also explains how petitioners can correct errors or update information on Form I-130 and provides general guidance on USCIS decision-making for family-based immigrant petitions.
