In the case of petition to parents, spouses and unmarried minor children of American citizens, visas are available immediately, making the processing and approval time of the petition shorter, usually 1-2 years so that the foreigner obtains the Permanent Legal Residence. When it comes to married or unmarried children of legal age, siblings of citizens, there is a waiting time that can be up to 7-14 years for a visa to be available and the foreigner can become a Permanent Legal Resident.
