In order to qualify for a U.S. visa, you need to be a relative of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident. There are a variety of ways to qualify for a family preference category. Immediate relatives are those who are closely related to a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, and can apply for a visa by following the appropriate process. The process can take anywhere from two months to a couple of years, depending on the circumstances of the applicant. Latest website: newspaperworlds
Family obligations can include taking care of elderly parents or children in school. You need to provide documents that prove this. Those documents include official letters that establish family relationships, letters from medical doctors explaining underlying medical conditions, and proof of current school enrolment for your children. You may also obtain supporting letters from family members attesting that you take care of your loved ones while you are away. If possible, submit these documents along with your application.
Immigrants can also apply for a student visa to pursue a Master’s degree at a U.S. university. After obtaining the degree, the applicant can get a one-year work permit through Optional Practical Training (OPT). A worker may be eligible for an H1B work visa through an employer who has applied for labor certification that proves that there are no American workers who meet the employer’s requirements. If successful, the worker may apply for a green card through the Department of Homeland Security.
