For example, it may be easier and less expensive get married abroad than in the US.The option for a Green Card through marriage is available to US citizens and permanent residents.Both the sponsor and the beneficiary have to establish their eligibility.The process varies depending on whether the sponsor is a US citizen or a Green Card holder.
To that end, effective immediately, I have directed U.
