Group Processing for Companies, Travel Agencies and Other Organizations


A group of applicants in Jamaica traveling together to the United States using the same itinerary for a specific event may qualify for a special "Group Processor" access. Examples include sports teams, students on cultural exchange programs, co-workers participating in training or attending a convention, and athletes participating in Penn Relays or Miami Classic Relays. Two or more applicants issued the same USCIS petition number as a temporary worker, performing group, support staff, etc., will be considered a group.

If you do not meet the requirements for "Group Processor" access, you can create an account and schedule through the normal nonimmigrant visa process.

If you qualify for "Group Processor" access, a group representative will need to follow the steps below:

  1. Create an account
  2. Click on the "Actions" link at the top right
  3. Select "Account settings" and click on the "Request Pre-approval To Be a Group Processor"
  4. Complete the request form and "submit"
  5. Your request will be reviewed by the Consular Section and you will receive an email with the decision.

If you have received “Group Processor” access and require assistance with website technical issues, MRV fee payments, or your login information (email and password) send an email to:
