Immigrant Visas

Schaumburg, Illinois- Attorney Representation for Immigrant Visas

According to immigration laws, there are two general types of visas foreign citizens must obtain, before they can travel to the United States: Nonimmigrant visas or immigrant visas. The purpose of your travel will determine the type of visa that is required. If you know you are going to be traveling or staying temporarily, then you will need a nonimmigrant type of visa. If you are trying to establish permanent residency in the U.S., then you will need an immigrant type of visa. Both nonimmigrant and immigrant visas contain certain categories specific to your objectives.

Ways to Apply for Immigrant Visas

In order to apply for an immigrant visa, a foreign citizen must be sponsored by one of the following groups:

  • An Immediate Relative: This means your U.S. citizen parents, spouse, siblings or children, or lawful permanent resident parent or spouse, living in the United States, can sponsor you for an immigrant visa.
  • Employer: Employers can sponsor foreign nationals on an employment-based immigrant visa by filing an Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker, Form 1-40, with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in the proper employment category.
  • Diversity Visa Program: Foreign nationals from certain countries may apply for an immigrant visa through a diversity lottery program, which is commonly referred to as the “Green Card Lottery”.
