5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am an old member of Visajourney , I am married to an american citizen and she sponsored me here , I came US this year and as i was married to my wife more than 2 years at my POE time, and they made a mistake and sent me a green card that was good for 2 years but i sent my green card back to them to have the error correct , i had to go for my Biometrics appointment , i went there and had my biometrics and they sent me a green card that is good for 10 years

but on the category it says IR6 instead of IR1.

i think they made a mistake again , but the good thing is that my green card is good for 10 years ,

i dont understand about why they sent me a green card with 1r6 category instead of ir1.

I am married to american citizen and she sponsord me USA.

whats the difference in IR6 and IR1.

would it effect on when i apply for citizenship?

please senior members reply.

IR-6 is the correct category. IR-1 is for people who receive an immigrant visa from a foreign consulate as the spouse of a US citizen. IR-6 is for people who adjust status in the US as the spouse of a US citizen.

** moved from "Adjustment of Status (Green Card) from Family Based Visas" to General Immigration Related Discussion as this isn't a question about the AOS process specifically, more a general Immigration "question"/need for definition**
