The Department of State acknowledges the International Civil Aviation Authority Organization (ICAO) deadline, requiring all travelers have a machine readable passport by November 24, 2015. Please note that under U.S. law a machine readable passport is NOT required for visa issuing purposes. So long as an applicant presents a valid passport, a visa can placed in it. However, non-machine readable passport bearers will be ineligible for international travel on commercial aircraft.

What is an Immigrant Visa?
Immigrant Visas (IVs) allow a citizen of another country to enter the United States to live and work there on a permanent basis. Except for Diversity Visas (DVs), all IVs require a petition to be filed with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services http://www.uscis.gov/ through the Department of Homeland Security.
Under U.S. law, IVs are generally reserved for persons who are either close relatives of U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents, or who have been hired to work in jobs that the government has determined cannot be filled by U.S. citizens due to a shortage of Americans with the skills needed to perform these jobs. Most immigration to the United States is initiated by a close relative or employer who submits a petition on the applicant’s behalf in the United States.
All immigrant visa applicants must create a Profile at www.ustraveldocs.com/bd in order to either collect their approved immigrant visa or submit additional 221(g) documents. The Principal applicant only needs to create this profile.
For more information regarding rules and procedures, legal permanent residency, petition-based visas of all types, and forms, please visit the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services website at http://www.uscis.gov/ or the Bureau of Consular Affairs website at http://travel.state.gov/.
