Consular processing – USCIS

Glossary

How Immigration Planner refers to the filing sequence where the initial application is filed at a USCIS international office; the detailed application at the immigrant visa unit with which the USCIS International Office is co-located (unless the sponsor designated another embassy on the I-130 application and that location was accepted by the State Department); and the interview of the applicant takes place at a U.S. embassy or consulate abroad.
