What is Consular Processing?
Consular processing is a U.S. visa application process that is for individuals who are applying from outside the United States. It is similar to Adjustment of Status (AOS), but it is used for applying for a green card from within the U.S. Through consular processing the individual will need to wait in their home country until the green card is approved.
How Long Does Consular Processing Take?
Depending on your immigration case, consular processing can take anywhere between 5 to 13 months on average.
Are There Any Fees For Consular Processing?
Consular processing fees depend on the type of green card that is being sought out. Below are some examples of the fees:
- Family-based and marriage-based green cards: $325 application fee ($535 filing fee)
- Employment-based green cards: about $1,045
Keep in mind that you will also need to pay for a medical exam and police certificates if applicable.

The visa application process can be complicated for even the best-prepared client. When there are other factors that may complicate the visa process, it is crucial that you work with a skilled immigration attorney.
