United States Visa Bangladesh
American Visa Bangladesh
The United States visa process can be a complicated and time consuming endeavor. The regulations and laws relevant to the US visa process can change quickly while the multiple agencies responsible for different aspects of the process have different rules and regulations regarding the handling of United States Immigration matters. As a result of this situation some companies, families, individuals, and organizations opt to retain the assistance of legal professionals to assist with the American Immigration process.
In many cases, the US visa process begins when a United States Immigration petition is submitted to the appropriate United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) office. The USCIS falls under the authority of the American Department of Homeland Security (DHS). USCIS is responsible for adjudicating American Immigration petitions. After adjudication, assuming approval of an immigration petition; which is not a foregone conclusion, the case file will be forwarded to the US National Visa Center for visa processing. The National Visa Center is an agency under the jurisdiction of the US Department of State which also is responsible for the administration of the various United States Missions abroad. When a United States Immigration petition is approved the National Visa Center acts as a sort of clearinghouse for American visa applications in the sense that this agency must see to it that case files arrive at the US Embassy, US Consulate, or American Institute with appropriate jurisdiction to adjudicate the visa application.
For those American Citizens with a spouse or fiance from Bangladesh, the visa application process will likely take place at the United States Embassy in Dhaka, Bangladesh. For purposes of United States Immigrant Visa processing the K-1 visa is treated in the same manner as Immigrant visas since foreign fiancee’s may enter the USA on a K-1 visa while maintaining immigrant intent. Consular Processing can be rather time consuming depending upon the caseload and circumstances of the Post.
Some Bangladeshi-American couples opt to retain the services of a professional to assist with the United States Immigration process. Under such circumstances, it should be noted that it is always prudent to check the credentials of those claiming expertise in American Immigration matters as only a licensed American attorney is legally permitted to provide advice, counsel, and representation of clients before the USCIS pursuant to 8 C.F.R. 292.1. In most cases, the Department of State’s American Missions abroad will not discuss pending visa matters with those who are not either the petitioner or beneficiary in a pending case. However, Consular Officers abroad will correspond with licensed American attorneys regarding pending cases if duly placed on notice of the representation. Therefore, those thinking of hiring a professional to assist with the US Immigration process should check the credentials of those claiming expertise in US visa matters to ensure that said individuals are licensed to practice law in at least one American jurisdiction.
Business and investment visas such as the EB-5 visa or the L-1 visa process in a different manner compared to the family based visa categories. Those interested in obtaining visa benefits under the category L1 or EB5 are well advised to conduct research or possibly contact an attorney prior to submitting a petition as such visas can be very costly and cumbersome to obtain.
