If I am an immigrant and I have acquired a Green card, is my sister (divorced and living alone in India) eligible for "US Green card through your family"

Or do only parents, kids and spouse fall under that option?


You have to be a US citizen who is 21 or over to petition a sibling or parent to immigrate to the US.

  • Thanks. So what is the maximum tenure that a Permanent resident may invite his sibling to the USA? I have accepted your answer, but unable to upvote you. Don't know why? – Richa Sharma Feb 16 '19 at 2:21
  • @RichaSharma Are you asking how long a sibling could visit you in the USA? – mkennedy Feb 16 '19 at 3:53
  • Yes, That's right. – Richa Sharma Feb 16 '19 at 4:22
  • @RichaSharma - According to the answer you accepted, it depends on whether you are at least 21. // I think you can't upvote an answer until you reach something like 15 rep. // Perhaps this would be helpful: my.uscis.gov/exploremyoptions/… – aparente001 Feb 24 '19 at 8:36
