Green Card

The United States has a long history of welcoming immigrants from all parts of the world. Becoming a permanent resident of the U.S. (or a green card holder) means that you have decided to call this country your home. There are great benefits to having a green card, such as the right to live and work permanently anywhere in the U.S., receive certain public benefits, and request for immigrant visas for your immediate family members. Most importantly, permanent resident status can lead to a path to U.S. citizenship.

You can obtain a green card either through your employer or family member. How fast you can get your green card depends on many factors, including the job/family visa categories you qualify, your country of origin, availability of immigrant visas, etc.

It is crucial to maintain your immigrant status while you wait for your green card, and after you become a permanent resident. Failure to maintain your status can result in serious immigration consequences - you can be deported from the country or lose your eligibility for U.S. citizenship.
