Consular Processing is appropriate when the beneficiary resides abroad, or if he or she cannot apply for Adjustment of Status (Form I-485) in the United States.
Consular Processing begins after the beneficiary has received an approved immigrant petition, such as an I-130 for example.
When such a petition is approved, the case transfers to the U.S. Department of State to prepare for an interview at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate in the beneficiary’s home country. Once the immigrant visa is approved, the beneficiary enters the United States as a lawful permanent resident.
