According to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) a V Visa is a “nonimmigrant visa created to allow families to stay together while waiting for the processing of immigrant visas”. The V Visa is part of the USCIS’s Family Based Immigration assistance program. A V Visa allows certain beneficiaries of immigration visa petitions to enter the United States, or change the status of a V Visa if already in the United States) to join the sponsor of their pending immigrant visa while they wait for a priority date to become current. This enables family unity while the petitions for visas are pending.
