Lots of people immigrate to the United States each year for various reasons. Work, school, business ventures and investments draw hundreds of people each year to the border and immigration kiosks in airports and sea ports. Of these immigrants, many of them wish to establish full-time residency within the United States. There are plenty of ways that people can go about doing this, including applying for green cards, marrying an American citizen or establishing naturalization. However, for those who are wishing to keep their citizenship in the country of their birth, but still stay in the U.S., they must establish legal residency.
There are various types of legal residency visas that can help you become a permanent resident. If you are employed by an American company, your employer can give proof of employment and you may be able to obtain an employee-sponsored work visa. Family members, spouses and fiancés of American citizens may be eligible as well for permanent visas and establish full-time American residency. In order to be eligible for full-time residency, an applicant must be eligible for admission to the U.S. This includes not being held for detention or deportation and the applicant cannot have any criminal convictions.
