American Immigration Based on Family Relationship | Immediate Relative Visa in the Philippines

Immediate Relatives is a classification that refers to the spouse and unmarried minor children of a U.S. citizen. Immediate relatives can also include the parents of an American citizen who is 21 years of age or older and the adopted children of a U.S. citizen.

These individuals have special privileges as the beneficiaries of immigrant visa petitions because they are exempt from numerical limitations imposed on other types of family members.
