The F31 visa, also known as the Family First Preference visa, is a type of visa for family-based immigration to the United States. The F31 visa is specifically for unmarried children over the age of 21 who are the sons or daughters of U.S. citizens.
The F31 visa is part of the family-based preference category of visas, which means that there are annual limits on the number of visas that can be issued in this category. This can result in longer processing times and wait times for F31 visa applicants.
To apply for an F31 visa, the U.S. citizen parent must file a petition on behalf of their unmarried child with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Once the petition is approved, the case will be forwarded to the National Visa Center (NVC) for further processing.
The NVC will request additional documentation from the applicant, including biographical information, civil documents, and financial support documents. The applicant will also need to attend an interview at a U.S. embassy or consulate in their home country.
If the F31 visa is approved, the beneficiary can enter the United States as a lawful permanent resident. Once in the United States, the beneficiary will receive a green card and can live and work in the United States permanently.
