Permanent Residency in the United States

In order for individuals who are not already citizens of the United States to be granted legal permission to live and work in the U.S., they must first be granted permanent residency. Once permanent residency has been acquired, a green card (otherwise known as a permanent residence card) will be provided to the applicant as legal proof of that individual’s permanent-residency status.

It should be noted, however, that Congress has set specific limitations upon the number of green cards granted to applicants every year, making it all the more important that an individual meets all the eligibility requirements and that their application is as complete as possible.

Process of Acquiring Legal Permanent Residency

Typically, individuals have the best chance of gaining permanent residency status when they are sponsored by either a resident of the United States or an organization based within the U.S., including:

  • Employers
  • Family members
  • Religious institutions
  • Humanitarian organizations

However, there are a number of exceptions to this stipulation, as certain individuals may successfully apply for a green card should they be included within a particular category, such as:

  • Refugees from certain countries
  • Victims of criminal activity or trafficking
  • Children born in the U.S.
  • Foreign diplomats

A number of adjustment programs exist to help people in these and a number of other circumstances gain permanent residency in the United States.
