- US Permanent Residents (Green Card Holders) – Permanent residents can petition for their spouse and their unmarried children.
- Refugees & Asylees – If are in the United States as a refugee or an asylee you can petition for visas for your spouse and unmarried children. You must have been granted your status directly, not through a relative, and must have been granted this status in the previous 2 years.
