The Visa Application Process: Explained
In broad terms, there are four key steps to the visa application process. Indeed, regardless of what type of visa you apply for, your application will proceed in the following manner:
Step 1: File Your Petition
First, you will need to file a petition with your U.S. sponsor. This petition must be filed with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). You will not be able to file the actual visa application until this petition is accepted and approved by USCIS.
Step 2: Select Your Agent
Next, you will need to pay your application fees and choose an agent. Your agent is simply your official representative; the person you select will receive all of the correspondence in your case. You can serve as your own agent, though it is generally best to appoint your Bridgeport visa lawyer as your agent.
Step 3: Submit Your application
Your case will then move onto the actual application. This is by far the most important step of the process. Your visa application must be filled out correctly, without any omissions. Additionally, you must be sure that you have included copies of all relevant documents and records. A simple mistake in your application could lead to a lengthy delay or even a denial.
Step 4: Prepare for an interview
Lastly, before your visa will be approved and issued, you must go through an official interview. Please do not take the interview lightly; it is extremely important. To ensure that your rights are fully protected, it is best to bring your immigration attorney with you to your interview.
