What Is a V Visa?
A V visa is specially intended for spouses of Green Card holders and unmarried children under the age of 21. An immigrant visa (Form I-130) must be filed on their behalf by a Legal Permanent Resident. A spouse can receive a V-1 Visa, while children are eligible for V-2 or V-3 visas.
Types of V visas are as follows:
- V-1 Visa – Granted to spouses who are married to a Legal Permanent Resident of the U.S. and who have waited for the approval of Legal Permanent Resident status for at least three years.
- V-2 Visa- Eligible for an unmarried child under the age of 21 with a parent who is a Legal Permanent Resident of the U.S.
- V-3 Visa- Intended for unmarried children under the age of 21 and is the derivative child of a foreign national that is eligible for a V-1 visa.
In addition to entering the United States, a V visa holder is eligible for employment after being granted a work permit through Form I-765. In order to ensure that the V visa process is properly handled and all deadlines are met, it is important to work with a skilled immigration lawyer in Tampa to work on your behalf.
You Need an Advocate During This Time
Immigration to the U.S. is a strict process and there is rarely an opportunity to do it twice. Should a visa be rejected, it can be difficult to receive another chance to apply for the same one. Instead of taking this risk, the seasoned immigration attorneys at Dehra Miotke understand how to navigate the system and strive to provide our clients with positive outcomes for their case – and nothing is more satisfying than bringing loved ones together.
