BASIC OVERVIEW OF WHAT THE U.S. IMMIGRATION LAW DEALS WITH

Immigration Law in the United States is a wide arena to deal with as it encompasses various situations a person might have to encounter relating to traveling from a different country. The most common scenarios and streams of Immigration Law are:

  • Visiting the country: Visitors to the United States often come for tourism, meeting loved ones with medical needs, or for social meetings or events.

They must prove their eligibility for the required visas and apply for them. For this category, visitors require a B-2 visitor visa. For Business purposes, visitors are required to apply for a B-1 business visa.

  • Employment in the U.S.: To obtain access to employment in the United States, it is important for the employee to gain the status of a permanent resident so that they can take advantage of any job opportunity in any part of the country. But in cases where they do not qualify for permanent resident status, they are to apply for a temporary work visa.
  • Green Card Acquirement: The Permanent Resident Card, i.e., the Green Card, is given to immigrants or parolees, but it has some of the most important criteria to abide by to obtain permanent citizenship through this card.

It is provided mainly to highly skilled employees and employers, immediate relatives of the citizens of the U.S.A., eligible refugees and seekers of asylum, and long-time residents. A limited number of Green Card visas are issued, and as the process is tedious and complex, only selected immigrants are eligible for it.

  1. Naturalization: The process of Naturalization, i.e., becoming a naturalized citizen, is an extensive procedure with heaps of paperwork, background confirmation, interview, and testing, ending with the mandatory oath of allegiance. Naturalization comes with similar benefits as that of a natural-born citizen of the U.S. Thereby, this process is a popular one.
  2. Process of Border Entry: The cross-border entry rules might be cumbersome, but the correct consultancy and procedure make the experience painless. The process is incorporated with the subsection of ” Border Entry Rules ” which includes all the border crossing formalities with additional border entry information. The overview is mainly applicable to;
  • Lawful Permanent Citizens who are Green Card Holders.
  • Citizens from foreign countries
  • Citizens of Canada and Mexico
  • Trust Traveler programs
