The US immigration system is known for its complexities and it has more than 60 non-immigrant US visa services in addition to the many employment based and family immigration routes through which a foreign national can obtain a US Green Card. Despite this the USA visa remains popular amongst foreign nationals.
Non-Immigrant US Visa
Non-immigrant visas include all USA visas for short term or temporary visits or business trips to the USA. This group of short visas includes US student visas and US work permits. For those who wish to visit the USA as tourists they will be issued with a US B2 visa, which is commonly known as a US travel visa. B2 visas are generally granted for six months and like their business counterpart the US B-1 visa, they do not permit a candidate to work in the USA.
Candidates who want to live and work in the US require a visa called an H1-B visa is a US work permit which requires a job offer to be in place for an application to be submitted, and for those transferring from an overseas branch of an American company the US L1 visa provides an Intra Company Transfer route to living and working in the USA.
Permanent Lawful Residence – Applying for a USA Green Card
In America, immigration services for those who wish to relocate to the USA permanently are encompassed by the US Green Card, or as it is officially known, permanent lawful residence in the USA. A Green Card application may be submitted under one of the family visa routes which require a US citizen or permanent resident to act as a sponsor, depending on their relation to the applicant. Those who have obtained a grant of US citizenship may sponsor a broader range of relatives including parents and siblings. However, US permanent residents may also sponsor their spouse, partner, fiancé and/or dependent children through the USA K visa category.
Employment Based Green Cards
The American Green Card can also be obtained through the five tier employment based immigration services. The EB-1 visa for skilled immigration and the EB-2 visa both place emphasis upon the skilled nature of the applicant and are designed for those with “extraordinary” or “exceptional” ability respectively. The EB-3 visa and EB-4 visa allow foreign nationals to migrate to the USA based upon employment opportunities and the EB-5 visa, or US investor visa as it is often known makes provision for permanent residence in the USA based upon a substantial investment. This is a long way to apply for a US Green Card hence it is often better to enter the USA on a temporary work visa such as a H1-B visa, and H2-B visa or an L1 visa and then apply for a permanent residency in the USA from within the country.
The US Green Card Lottery
The United States Green Card lottery is also synonymous with applicants who desire to move to America. The lottery provides a limited amount of people from qualifying countries to immigrate to America. A Global Visas US immigration consultant will be able to advise you whether applicants from your country of residence qualify to apply for a US Green Card in this way.
Studying in the USA
Many foreign nations desire to study in the US, the US study visas also fall under the temporary immigration services and enable foreign nationals to study in the US. Applicants may visit the US to undergo training on a J1 visa, and the F1 visa and M1 study visa categories allow students to study in America for academic or vocational qualifications.
