Immigrant Visas

Immigrant visas to the United States are processed for citizens and residents of Trinidad & Tobago at the U.S. Embassy in Trinidad & Tobago.


To apply for an immigrant visa, a foreign citizen seeking to immigrate generally must be sponsored by a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident immediate relative(s), or prospective U.S. employer, and have an approved petition before applying for an immigrant visa. The sponsor begins the process by filing a petition on the foreign citizen’s behalf with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).  You may wish to review our Directory of Visa Categories to learn about the different types of immigrant visas to the United States. Then, follow the steps on the Immigrant Visa Process to begin applying for an immigrant visa.


Once USCIS has approved your petition and you have completed pre-processing with the National Visa Center (NVC), review the instructions given to you by the NVC for further guidance and instructions.


If you would like more information or have questions regarding your case, you can contact the Visa Information Center or contact our Official U.S. Department of State Visa Appointment Service Center.
