How can I bring my foreign nephew to live in the US? 4 Answers as of August 22, 2011I am a 45 years old U.S. citizen. I have a nephew in China who is about to be 13 years old. My family would like him to come to U.S. for middle school through college for a better education. We would also like him to live in my house. Is it possible for him to immigrate here through me or can we only apply for student visa? Thank you!

You may not petition for your nephew to immigrate. Student visa your nephew should apply at the US consulate. First you should obtain I-20 from a private school. For a student visa, the US consulate must first be satisfied that the student will go back to his country. Then the consulate will make sure the student will have enough funds to cover his stay and expenses without having to work. Your sponsorship will be considered at this level if you intend to pay for the expenses.
