Immigrant Visas: Family-Based Immigration

The Visa Section at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul is currently closed to the public due to COVID-19. We are unable to provide immigrant and nonimmigrant visa services that require an in-person appearance or interview

You can find the latest information on COVID here:  https://af.usembassy.gov/covid-19-information/

Two groups of family-based immigrant visa categories, immediate relatives and family preference, are provided under the provisions of U.S. immigration law, specifically the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).  You may wish to review our Directory of Visa Categories  on usvisas.state.gov to learn more about these two categories of immigrant visas, as well as other types of immigrant visas to the United States, including our Diversity Visa Program.
