Immigrant Visas

Those who wish to work and reside in the United States as a permanent resident will usually need to apply for an immigrant visa. In most cases, an immigrant will need to have a sponsor who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident who can begin the filing process with a petition on the potential immigrant’s behalf. If your petition is approved, you will then be required to submit visa fees, forms, and other documents that prove identity and evidence of a sponsorship. There are many different types of immigrant visas including, but not limited to:

• Family Based Visas. These are used for those who have a family member living in the United States as a citizen or lawful permanent resident. The relative must be able to prove that he or she has the financial means to support you upon arrival to the U.S.
Employment Visas. Those who are entering the United States due to a prospective job must apply for an employment visa. In some cases, spouses and children are permitted to accompany the employment-based immigrant. This immigrant must be sponsored by a company.
Adoption Visas. This is granted to those who plan to permanently adopt a child from another country or those from another country who wish to adopt an American child.

Most immigrants seek visas for family or employment reasons, however, there are many other immigrant visas for specific countries, religious workers, medical professionals, and more. Information about each of these types of immigrant visas can be found at Before applying for an immigrant visa, it is important to understand the process fully, gather the necessary documents, and consult with an experienced immigration lawyer who can assist you in filing for residency.
