The U.S. Department of State has updated its “Family Reunification for Afghans” webpage (Sep 2023). This page describes the different immigration options for Afghans wishing to reunite with family members. The available options are based on citizenship, immigration status, and how one entered the United States.
The different categories include:
- U.S. Citizen
- Lawful Permanent Resident
- Lawful Permanent Resident through the Afghan SIV Program
- Refugee or Asylee
Each category has distinct processes and forms to use.
