As a new U.S. Citizen, can I
sponsor my Aunts or Uncles for their immigration to United States?
As a U.S. citizen, you can sponsor the
- family members for whom you
may have already started the immigration process, including your spouse
and unmarried children, who will be able to immigrate immediately, and
Becoming a citizen allows
you to start the immigration process for certain family members other
than your spouse and unmarried children. These include your parents,
married children, and brothers and sisters. However, It does not
include family members such as grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins,
nieces, and nephews.)
- other family members,
including your parents, married children, brothers, and sisters, for
whom you now can start the immigration process.
Not all of your eligible family members will become immediate
relatives, however; some of them will be preference relatives, and
therefore have to wait many years before having the opportunity to
immigrate through you.
