How to Immigrate to USA

There are many ways a noncitizen can come to America, both temporarily and permanently.  If you are interested in coming to America, contact an experienced immigration attorney.

Temporary Options

The following are ways to visit the United States temporarily.  For these visas, you must enter the United States with the intention of leaving when your visa expires, but you can obtain another temporary or permanent visa in the future if your plans change.

Visitor for Business (B-1) or Pleasure (B-2) – a B visa is for a short term visit for business or pleasure.  Business activities can include training or negotiating a deal; as long as no work is being done that is paid from the U.S.  A B-2 visa is available for tourists, people visiting family, and people seeking medical treatment.

Student Visa (F-1) – you must be accepted and enrolled in an American university and be able to pay for your education.  The visa lasts as long as you are in school.  If you graduate, you can work for 12 months in the United States afterwards, 29 if your degree is in science, technology, engineering or math.

Skilled work permit (H-1B) – A person with a 4 year college degree (or an equivalent experience level) can be sponsored by an employer for an H-1B visa.  There is a limit of 85,000 H-1B visas per year, although certain visas are exempt from the cap.  An H-1B visa lasts for 3 years with one possible extension of another 3 years.

Temporary Investment Visa (E-2) – Citizens from certain countries can get a temporary visa if they make a qualifying investment in an American business.  Unlike the EB-5 visa, there is no minimum investment, as long as the applicant invests enough money for the business to reasonably operate.  An E-2 visa is good for two years, with no limit of extensions.

Permanent Options

Permanent visa options are for certain family members of U.S. citizens and permanent residents, people with certain job skills, and asylees and refugees.

Spouses, parents, and young children of U.S. citizens can apply for Green Cards without a quota or backlog.  Spouses and children of Green Card holders, along with older children, brothers, and sisters of U.S. Citizens can apply for Green Cards, but there is a backlog.

People with college degrees or advanced skills and a job offer can apply for employment based Green Cards.  The difficulty and waiting times for employment based Green Cards depend on the level of skills and expertise of the worker.

People who invest $1 million ($500,000 in some areas) and create 10 U.S. jobs can apply for a Green Card under the EB-5 visa program.

Refugees and asylees are allowed to stay in the United States for life, and they are allowed to apply for a Green Card within one year.

I would highly recommend Political Asylum USA's consultation service! It was very informative about my rights as a persecuted LGBT individual.

Political Asylum USA was a great resource to me. They fully explained the process of getting asylum in the United States. When I told them that I didn't have any money to hire a private attorney, they recommended a non-profit legal provider to me.

I was lost when I arrived to the United States, and scared for my life in my home country. I knew I couldn't go back, but I also didn't know what to do. I found Political Asylum USA and luckily they gave me all the information I needed, to fully investigate my options. I would recommend their services to anyone that does not know how to proceed with asylum

Political Asylum USA helped me to understand how asylum works in the United States. It is extremely complicated, so it was nice to have experts to guide me. They even referred me to a top New York-based Immigration Attorney, who handled my case from start to finish.
