Understanding the Process

Permanent residency does not happen overnight. It is a time-consuming process that requires persistency and patience otherwise you risk application denial or rejection. First, you will need a non-immigrant visa. This visa must bemaintained for several years before you can apply for an immigrant visa. While there are special circumstances that can allow you to skip this step, these circumstances are rare and most immigrants do not qualify for them. If you marry a U.S. citizen, you still have to wait three years after the marriage date to apply for citizenship. Other cases can take up to five years.

Some other considerations for permanent residency include:

  1. A sponsorship from a family member living in the United States.
  2. Proof that you have lived and worked in the U.S. abiding by all laws and you have not posed a threat to U.S. safety such as committing or being arrested for a crime.
  3. Fulfillment proof of all USCIS application requirements.
