Permanent Residence Visas in New York

How do you apply for a permanent residence visa?

A permanent residence visa, often referred to as a "green card," is an extremely competitive and highly challenging process in the United States. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services only approves a limited number of visas each year for both employment-based purposes and residential-based purposes. In any case, it is always important to have a qualified attorney by your side to make sure that not a single error is made throughout the entire process.

Obtaining a permanent residence visa, which allows an alien to both live in the United States permanently and seek employment legally, is competitive in the sense that an alien must fall under certain categories to achieve this type of residency. Below are the five preference tiers to obtain a permanent residence visa:

  • Tier 1: Those individuals who have an exceptional talent or ability in the field of the arts, sciences, research, business, education, or athletics. Additionally, specific multi-national executives can fall under this category.
  • Tier 2: Those with proof of a job offer in the U.S., professionals who have advanced degrees, and those who are outstanding in business science or the arts.
  • Tier 3: Qualified professionals and workers who have a bachelor's degree.
  • Tier 4: Certain employees of the United States government abroad.
  • Tier 5: Investors who contribute $1 million or more to create ten or more jobs. This can sometimes be accepted at $500,000 for areas that suffer from high unemployment.

If you fall under one of these categories or would like to have your case reviewed to determine if you can qualify, don't wait to call a New York immigration attorney from our law office.
