    Unfortunately, with rigidly few exceptions, distant relatives, such as aunts / uncles, cousins, and grandparents cannot be sponsored for a green card. Even U.S. citizens cannot petition for these relatives. It may be possible to invite them for a temporary visit on a visitor’s visa, depending upon whether they have sufficient ties to their respective home countries to show that they have no immigrant intent.

    However, they may be sponsored under the employment-based preference categories if the sponsoring relative owns a business or is able to find employment for the foreign national relative.
