Green Cards


This section explains how to obtain a green card also known as permanent residence.

The Green Card (Lawful Permanent Resident Card) may be obtained by following one or more routes. Permanent residence enables a person to live and work in the United States for the rest of his/her life. Broadly speaking, Permanent Residency can be obtained through Family Sponsorship, Employment or Asylum based immigration. You may also qualify to get Permanent Residency via filing National Interest Waiver or other special category for persons of Extraordinary Ability or the Green Card Lottery (Diversity Visa).
