Can I file my I-485 from India?


In order submit an I-485 application, one needs to physically be in the United States at the time of filing. If you wish to apply for a green card from India, the application normally would be submitted for consular processing (i.e., applying for an immigrant visa through the consulate, as opposed to adjusting status from within the United States.) However, this process typically takes significantly longer than adjusting status from within the U.S.  (18.May.2022)
