What is a ‘filing sequence’? This is the optimized route that the green card application will travel. There are more than one U.S. immigration official involved in evaluating a green card application, think about it as the sequence of who is doing what when.
Why have I never heard about ‘filing sequence’ before? It is normal. This is a definition created by Immigration Planner.
What determines the applicant’s filing sequence? The most important dimensions are essentially:
- The applicant’s and sponsor’s country of residence
- Whether the applicant is an immediate relative or is eligible for a family-based preference
- The applicant’s country of birth
