A Green Card holder or permanent resident is someone who has been granted authorization to live and work in the United States on a permanent basis. As proof of that status, a person is granted a permanent resident card, commonly called a “Green Card.”
The steps to becoming a permanent resident vary by category and depend on whether you currently live inside or outside the United States. The main categories are:
- Permanent Residence through family
- Permanent Residence through a job offer
- Permanent Residence through Refugee or Asylee Status
- Permanent Residence through Visa Diversity (Visa Lottery)
If you think you can get a Green Card, call IACO at 973-472-4648.
