It's time to establish your permanent residency!

Though there are many ways to become a permanent resident of the United States, obtaining a green card is one of the most common options. Before being granted a green card, however, you must fulfill several eligibility requirements, which could include the following:

  • Have a qualifying immigrant petition filed and approved
  • Have immediate family members, such as a spouse or parent, who are U.S. citizens
  • Have an employer who can prove your exceptional ability, and that there is a shortage of U.S. workers to fill the position you would be taking
  • Have an immigrant visa readily available
  • Have refugee or asylum status
  • Be admissible in the U.S.

Depending on your particular situation, you can obtain a green card through family, through an employer, through asylum, or through the green card lottery. Once you have been granted a green card, you will have authorization to legally live and work in the U.S. permanently. As proof of your legal status, you will be granted a permanent resident card, commonly known as a "green card."
