Consular Processing (NVC)

Consular processing is a method used in U.S. immigration law for obtaining immigrant visas (green cards) for individuals who are outside the United States and are eligible for lawful permanent residency (LPR) based on family sponsorship, employment, or other qualifying factors. Consular processing involves the U.S. Department of State’s consular offices or a foreign embassy located in a foreign country.

 The National Visa Center (NVC) plays a key role in the consular processing of immigrant visa applications. It acts as an intermediary between USCIS, which approves immigrant visa petitions, and the consular offices abroad where immigrant visa interviews take place.
