Special immigrant or NACARA

There are multiple categories of special immigrant, but the most common type of adjustment is through international governmental organization (IGO) employment. Employees (and their family members) of IGOs like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund may be eligible to adjust their G-4 visa status to LPR status after a certain number of years of work in the U.S. To determine your eligibility, contact your organization’s visas or human resources department.

Citizens of certain Central American and Eastern European countries may be eligible for relief from removal under the Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA). More information about the requirements for this type of adjustment can be found here; if you have questions about your eligibility, please contact us.
