Employment-Based Green Cards


“Green Cards” or "Permanent Resident Cards" are documents that allow persons from other countries to live and work in the United States permanently. A person with a green card is a permanent resident in the United States. Permanent residents have many of the same rights and obligations of United States citizens. The major differences are that permanent residents cannot vote and they can be deported for certain types of crimes.


United States issues employment-based visas for foreign nationals to work in the United States. Some employment visas can ultimately result in permanent residency (green card). Certain spouses and children may accompany or follow-to-join the principal immigrant. Different categories of preference are established for employment-based visas. Such categories include:


Persons of extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics with sustained national or international acclaim and recognition in the field of expertise.


Outstanding professors and researchers who are well recognized.


Certain executives and managers who have been employed at least one of the three preceding years by the overseas affiliate, parent, subsidiary, or branch of the U.S. employer.


Professionals Holding Advanced Degrees, or Persons of Exceptional Ability in the Arts, Sciences, or Business.


Skilled Workers, Professionals Holding Baccalaureate Degrees and Other Workers.

Investors who make a qualifying capital investment in the United States.






More Information


Receiving Permanent Residency through employment is a complex process. The process generally takes a number of years, however, the applicant is able to work and live in the United States while the application is pending.
