There are two programs through which Amerasians may apply to immigrate to the United States—the Amerasian Immigration Act and the Amerasian Homecoming Act.
In order to qualify for immigration under the Amerasian Immigration Act, applicants must have been born in Cambodia, Korea, Laos, Thailand, or Vietnam after December 31, 1950, and before October 22, 1982, and have been fathered by a U.S. citizen. Information on how to apply for a visa through the Amerasian Immigration Act, including filing a petition, can be found here.
In order to qualify for immigration under the Amerasian Homecoming Act, applicants must have been born in Vietnam after January 1, 1962 and before January 1, 1976 and have been fathered by a U.S. citizen. If you have general questions about this program or would like to inquire about your pending Amerasian case, please submit an inquiry here.
Individuals who believe they qualify under the Amerasian Homecoming Act who wish to be considered for immigration into the United States should initiate the application process here. There is no fee to apply for an Amerasian visa.
