  1. Unfortunately there is no family-based category to petition for your cousin. There may be a business immigration option available if you are able and willing to employ your cousin or if someone else is willing to employ your cousin. More information will be needed. You or your cousin should consult with an immigration attorney to go over any and all options available.
