When you petition or apply to come to the United States, you are required to fill out immigration forms for your stay. Whether you are coming to the U.S. on a nonimmigrant visa or an immigrant visa, there will be at least one immigration form that must be completed to lawfully enter the United States.
You can find immigration forms by category below. These links will take you to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) pages containing information about the corresponding immigration forms.
Each immigration form is specified for the purpose of stay in the United States. Which immigration forms you will fill out depends on your reason for immigrating to the U.S. Working closely with an immigration and naturalization attorney can help you figure out which forms are best suited to your individual purpose. Your immigration attorney can also help you fill out immigration paperwork, as the process can be complicated.
Each U.S. immigration form has its own direct filing address. Some forms also have an electronic option. The pages linked below will provide further information on where to mail your particular immigration forms after they are filled out and signed. Other forms, such as the I-830 immigration form for change of address to the Department of Justice (DOJ), need to be sent to the DOJ Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR). EOIR forms from the DOJ can be found on their website.
You will find immigration application forms listed below by category. Let us know if you have any questions about the forms needed for your particular immigration process.
Please note that some of these forms can also be applied to other categories. For example, Form I-601, Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility can be applied under adoption-based forms, but may also be used for a family-based visa. Likewise, Form I-864 is used for adoption as well as most family-based immigrants, and can even be used in some cases for employment-based immigrants. Consult your immigration attorney before submitting your immigration forms to make sure all immigration application forms needed for your case are included.
