How Do I Become Eligible for a Green Card?

The most common ways that an individual can obtain a Green Card or conditional Green Card is through their family or employer. If you are an immediate family member — which includes parents, spouses, or children — of a United States citizen, you have the ability to acquire a visa immediately without limitations.

If you are being sponsored by your employer, you may apply for permanent residence but must wait until a visa number becomes available. If you are seeking refugee or asylum status, you may apply for permanent residence status a year after asylum has been granted. There are also a number of other ways to receive a Green Card, mainly through special immigrant programs, petitions, and other such available services.

If you are in a preference category, visa availability is determined by:

  • The individual's priority date
  • Immigration preference category
  • The county your visa will be charged to
