Update regarding the Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) Program

The Iraqi SIV program benefiting individuals who have been employed by, or on behalf of, the U.S. government has been extended through the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).  Please click here to review the relevant information on the SIV program extension prior to submitting an SIV-related question.

Check the Status of your SIV or IV Application Online

Immigrant (IV) and Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) applicants can now check the status of their pending visa applications online.  For more information, please click here.
