For Serbian Nationals

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Can Serbian nationals go to the US Embassy in Belgrade to apply for permanent residence in the US?

I'm asking this because my cousin recently married a Serbian guy and they are planning to migrate to the US. (L)

My cousin's Serbian husband said that he can walk in the US Embassy and apply for a US residency anytime. IS THIS TRUE? :unsure:

As far as I know, Serbians (and everyone else for that matter) can only migrate to the US if:

(1) they have a US Citizen fiancee/spouse,

(2) they have immediate relatives who are US Citizens/Lawful Permanent Residents/Green Card Holders,

(3) they have a US-based employer/job offer,

(4) they win in the Diversity Visa Lottery (wherein Serbia is included)

Thanks in advance.

P.S. My cousin is Filipino with a Philippine passport. They got married in Serbia.

That would be incorrect. A US citizen or Green Card holding spouse can file a visa petition for her.

Exactly.

As of this time, they don't qualify in any of the 4 conditions I enumerated above.

Maybe he thought he can just simply apply for it?

So he can't migrate to the US, just because he wants to.

That reason is not enough.

That's what I thought too.

The only way I can see them migrating is if: (1) he gets a US-based job or (2) he wins the DV lottery.
