Immigrants in America account for one-fifth of the world’s migrants. Millions of immigrants enter the U.S. every year to pursue a new life, but that is easier said than done. The immigration process is incredibly complicated, and getting a green card can take months or years.

Immigrant Visas

There are many types of visas to apply for, depending on your situation. In many cases, an employer or relative will sponsor an immigrant by applying to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Once the documentation and paperwork are complete, and the USCIS has approved the application, an immigrant can become a lawful permanent resident.

Types of immigrant visas include the following:

  • Immediate family/relative sponsored
  • Fiancé or spouse of a U.S. citizen
  • Employer sponsored
  • Priority workers
  • Religious workers
  • Iraqi and Afghan translators/interpreters
  • Diversity immigrant
  • Returning resident
  • And more

These visas are usually for a more permanent stay in the United States, and the review process takes time. The Law Firm of Shihab & Associates can help you navigate the visa application process and inform you of your options.

Nonimmigrant Visas

While immigrant visas usually result in lawful permanent resident status, nonimmigrant visas are issued to foreign nationals temporarily for tourism, business, medical treatment, and temporary work positions. Instead of applying to the USCIS, nonimmigrant visas are usually submitted directly to the U.S. consulate or embassy in the applicant’s home country. Issuance of a visa does not guarantee entrance into the United States. It is evidence of your eligibility to enter the U.S. and to submit to a search and inspection by a border patrol officer.

Nonimmigrant visas include the following:

  • Athlete
  • Exchange visitor
  • Business visitor
  • Diplomat or foreign government official
  • International cultural exchange visitor
  • Medical treatment
  • Media, journalist
  • Physician
  • Student (academic or vocational)
  • Tourism or vacation
  • Treaty investor

For a complete list of visas and eligibility requirements, visit here. While these visas are for temporary visitation to the U.S., issues can still arise at any time. Whether you are experiencing difficulty acquiring a nonimmigrant visa or having complications with border patrol officers, you should always contact a legal advocate.
