Can I apply from outside the US

Published Jun 22,2009 By GCforPhD
Question:
I wish to know whether candidate from any country can apply or is the application limited to US based scientists (scientists already in the US).
Thank you very much.
Answer:

Both i-140 (permanent residency petition) and i-485 (adjustment of status) do not explicitly state that the applicant should be residing in the USA at the time of application. The applicant can potentially be from anywhere. The procedures for i-1485 filing when the applicant is outside the US are different and requires consular processing.

Best of luck
