Immigrants can visit, live and work in the U.S., but they must first apply for a visa. Visas can be obtained by those who want to enter the country permanently and for those who are only visiting the U.S. temporarily. Immigrants seeking permanent citizenship are subject to country-specific quotas. Thus, they will not only have to get approved, but they may also have to wait their turn to possess a green card. Immigrants seeking temporary status are not subject to quotas.
Immigrant law is extensive and particular. The federal government requires immigrants to provide numerous records and documentation in line for approval. In addition, an interview must be conducted at the applicable U.S. Embassy or Consulate before a visa is established. The applicant, petitioner and applicant attorney will be notified of the appointment date.
The approval process is not easy to navigate through, but the federal government requires specific documentation and confirmation in order to protect the United States.
