a permanent visa grants the applicant, spouse, and minor children
permanent residence to live and work in the United States. The
visa is commonly known as the "Green Card." An individual
can obtain a Green Card through a number of avenues.
In short, permanent residence is generally afforded
to those who have achieved extraordinary ability in their professions
or have a permanent employment position offered that no American
can fill. Multinational executives, religious leaders and other
specified individuals also qualify. Close family members of U.S.
Citizens or United States Permanent Residents can obtain Green
Cards through the Family Based visas, and Lottery winners can
win one through the Diversity Visa process.
