“Your Immigration Status Matters to Us” and we would be very pleased to assist you with any type of process you might need or visa you are seeking to obtain.
- The type of visa is required to obtain; and
- The requirements an applicant must meet in order to be eligible for that particular visa.
In general, there are two categories of visas:
- Immigrant Visa (Permanent)
This visa grants to the foreign national the right to live and work permanently in the United States and foreign nationals who are holders of these visas are called Legal Permanent Residents (LPRs); typically after meeting some requirements these LPRs can apply to become U.S. citizens.
- Non-Immigrant Visas (Temporary)
These visas allow foreign national temporary admission to invest, work, train, or reside in the United States. Each visa has its own specific requirements, benefits, restrictions, and period of time; typically these visas are not a path to become LPRs.
