Nonimmigrant visas are granted to individuals who wish to enter the United States for a temporary stay, usually for a specific purpose. These visas typically fall under one of several categories, including family-based visas, visitor visas, exchange visas, and business visas.
Family-based visas allow for the entry of family members of U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents. In contrast, visitor visas are typically used for tourism, business, medical treatment, or other activities of a temporary nature.
Exchange visas are for individuals participating in an approved exchange program. In contrast, business visas are typically used by individuals coming to the U.S. to conduct business activities.
Long-term visas based on employment or business operations in the U.S. are also available. They can be used by individuals who wish to work in the U.S. or start a business in the U.S. These visas are typically more challenging to obtain. Applicants must demonstrate their qualifications and experience to work or operate a business in the U.S.
Marriage to a U.S. Citizen is one of the many family-based situations in which a foreign individual can obtain a visa or a green card. This type of application requires the U.S. citizen spouse to sponsor their foreign partner and the application to be filed with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to receive approval.
Other family-based immigration situations in which a foreign individual can obtain a visa or green card include sponsorship of a family member for a visa or green card. In this situation, a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident family member must sponsor the foreign individual and the application must be filed with the USCIS.
Additionally, other family-based situations may be eligible for a visa or green card, such as a petition for an orphaned relative, a petition for aged-out children, or a petition for a fiancé/fiancée. The application must be filed with the USCIS in each situation to receive approval.
Work permits for new immigrants or employers on visas allow individuals to work legally within a specific jurisdiction. The local government typically issues these documents and often requires a permit fee.
Work permits generally specify the type of job the individual is authorized to do, the time the permit is valid for, and any restrictions or requirements imposed on the job. Sometimes, employers must provide additional documentation to prove they are correctly sponsoring the individual's work permit.
Adjustment of status refers to changing a person's immigration status from one non-immigrant status to another or from an undocumented or out-of-status status to a permanent resident (Green Card) or U.S. citizen status. This process is only available to individuals who are already in the United States and eligible to receive an immigrant visa or become a U.S. citizen through another route.
The process of adjustment of status involves submitting an adjustment of status application to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), attending an interview with an officer, and potentially having to attend a hearing with an immigration judge if the application is denied. After the application is approved, the individual will be granted permanent residence or U.S. citizenship.
