Sibling sponsorship question

Asked by: 726 views , , , , ,


I am visiting my sister in the United States on a visitor visa, which expires next April.  My sister is over 21 and an American citizen.  I am interested in being sponsored for a green card under the sibling category. 

I’ll be returning to my home in India next week, and I wanted to know if my sister needed to file the petition for the green card while I’m still in the US, or would she still be able to file it if I am in India?

Thanks in advance.

    You sister can file an I -130 petition while you are in India. You do not have to be present in the U.S.
