Does marriage to a U.S. citizen automatically grant me residence?
It does not. Although obtaining a Green Card is significantly easier as an immediate relative, the process can take up to several months to complete.

What is the Green Card lottery?
It is a system that serves to make the immigration process a diverse one. The available visas are distributed among six geographic areas to include immigrants from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States.

Can I get a visa inside the United States?
Foreign nationals are required to apply for a visa at the U.S. embassy or consulate that is located outside of the United States.

How do I adjust my immigration status?
When a visa becomes available, the National Visa Center will send a letter inquiring on your plans. If you say that you wish to adjust your status, they will hold your file until it is handled by the USCIS.
