6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm an Ir-1 visa holder, what kind of green card will i recieve? conditional or unconditional?

CR1 = 2 years conditional

IR1 = 10 years GC

I don't think the term is 'unconditional'

CR-1 is for conditional Relative or those couple married for less than 2 years

IR-1 Immediate Relative for those couple married more than 2 years.
