Hi everyone,

My aunt who currently leaves in Greece, where the economy is so bad and there are no jobs, want to come to America. Could someone guide me through the steps and the process how to bring her here please. Thank you in advance for your help.

The only path from you to your aunt is

You become a USC.

You petition the parent that is the aunts sibling

that parent becones as USC after 5 years

Your parent files a sibling petition where the wait is over 10 years.


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

As people have said, it would take a chain of people to get her over and even that would take many, many years. If your Aunt wants a better economic situation than Greece (and is a Citizen of an EU country), maybe she can look around and see if there is another EU country she can move to that would improve her economic system. I'm not 100% sure on this, but if you are an EU Citizen then I don't think you need a visa or work permit to work in another EU country. But your Aunt should check that out with the country before she moves, if she considers this plan.

She has options, but not really in the US (at least not for a long, long time), unless she is engaged-to-be-married to or actually married to a US Citizen.
