Immigrant visas, which are commonly referred to as “Green Cards,” permits a foreign national to permanently reside in the United States. Lawful permanent residency may be obtained through the following categories:
Family – Based Permanent Residence Visas
Qualified foreign nationals may obtain lawful permanent residency through family members who are either United States citizens or permanent residents. United States Citizens may petition for spouses, parents, children and siblings to obtain their permanent residence. Permanent residents may petition only for spouses and children. There are various eligibility requirements and preference categories depending upon the specific type of family relationship. Due to annual limits in certain preference categories there may be a significant delay in the availability of a permanent visa.
Employment – Based Permanent Residence Visas
Lawful permanent residency may also be obtained through a foreign national’s work in the United States. There are several employment-based preference categories, many of which require sponsorship by a United States employer. manual pdf Some categories also require a certification from the U.S. Department of Labor (“labor certification”) before an employer may sponsor an alien for permanent residence. As with the family-based categories, employment-based categories are also subject to annual limitations depending upon the preference category, which may cause a significant delay in the availability of a permanent visa.
Naturalization and Citizenship
Lawful permanent residents may become naturalized United States citizens after meeting certain eligibility requirements.

In some cases, aliens may be eligible for United States citizenship through birth or their parents.
