Want To Immigrate To The United States?
This Is The Way:
Most of the people in the developing and underdeveloped countries keep watching out for an opening to enter into one of the most developed countries. Many have been waiting year after year to apply for green cards or to somehow win in American visa lottery application to gain their permission to the United States Citizenship.
Some have turned out to be lucky to immigrate, others have been conned in citizenship application by fraudsters and others are still waiting for their lucky day. But to the ones willing to land to the States, then this is how you can apply different entry basics.
How to Apply for my Green Card
You might desire to know the right and true process of the United States Green Card application which is also called the Permanent resident card. The card gives the holder rights to live, work and travel in and out of US.
The process and procedure of how to apply for my green card involve:
Looking for your eligibility
If eligible, you will be required to fill Form 1-485 which is the Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and include all your documents and the required fees
There is a review of your application form by USCIS and call for an interview with you
If you pass, you will have 10 years in the U.S. soil
If the application for resident alien card goes through, then you can go ahead and apply for your citizenship or naturalization. But how is it different from the Visa Lottery. Let’s see how.
Application For Visa Lottery
This program benefits those countries that don’t have many citizens in the United States and it basically gives 50,000 visas to immigrants every year. This is where your fortune works because all the applications are placed in a draw and the winners are given the Visa. The application process is as follows:
You must be eligible in that you are from a country with few immigrants into the US, the list keeps on changing every year so always be updated and you must have finished your high school or have some tangible work experience.
Register online for free when the lottery is open, and fill the web form
Keep the confirmation number safely to enable you to check your status because the US department will not send you an email or letter that you have won the lottery.
If you have won, apply for a green card in DS form 260 and prepare for your interview
US Citizenship Application
In order to apply for your naturalization if you are not a US citizen, you fill Form N-400. The procedure is as follows:
Determine whether you are eligible for the citizenship eligibility
Be prepared with your Form N-400 and submit it to USCIS and they will notify its receipt
USCIS will notify you of a biometric appointment
You will be invited for an interview by USCIS after being through with preliminary processes
You will receive a Granted, Continued for further documentation or Denied decisions from USCIS
After approval, you receive an invitation to take the oath of allegiance
After being aware of your rights and responsibilities as a US citizen you can immigrate.
