Adjustment of status is the process used to apply for lawful permanent resident status (also known as a Green Card) while you are present in the United States. This means that you may complete the entire application process without having to return to your home country to complete visa processing.
According to USCIS, if you are outside of the United States, you cannot submit your residency application through the Adjustment of Status, you must submit your applications through consular processing.
