What is Consular processing?
Consular processing is the procedure for applying for an immigrant visa (green card )at the U.S embassy or consulate abroad. Once you are the beneficiary of an approved immigrant petition and the visa number is available immediately, there are two ways to apply for the green card. If you are outside the United States, the only way to immigrate to the U.S is to go for consular processing. However if you’re already in the U.S can go either for Adjustment of Status or Consular Processing.
