People with job skills needed by U.S. employers are eligible for green cards as listed below. However, it is important to remember that only a limited number of green cards are available to these applicants, leading to waits of several months or years, based on their place in these preference categories:
- Employment first preference. Priority workers, including the following three groups:
- persons of extraordinary ability in the arts, sciences, education, business, or athletics
- outstanding professors and researchers, and
- managers and executives of multinational companies.
- Employment second preference.
- Professionals with advanced degrees or exceptional ability.
- Employment third preference.
- Professionals and skilled or unskilled workers.
- Employment fourth preference.
- Religious workers, various miscellaneous categories of workers, and so-called Special Immigrants.
- Employment fifth preference.
- Individual investors willing to invest $1,800,000 in a U.S. business (or $900,000 if the business is in an economically depressed area).
An immigration lawyer can help you in determining which category you would most likely qualify for. Generally speaking, in order to be eligible for a green card through employment, you must have a job offer.
The job offer must be full-time, permanent, U.S.-based work from an employer that is also permanently
located in the United States. (See 20 C.F.R. § 656.3 for a review of which employers may or may not qualify—for
example, visiting diplomats from other countries or foreign media corporations cannot sponsor a person for an employment based green card.) Furthermore, you, as the immigrant applicant must have the correct background, education and work experience for the job you are being offered. Lastly, and often most difficult, there must be no qualified U.S. worker willing or able to take the job—except in categories of green cards where labor certification is not required.
Politicians in the U.S. are often under a lot of pressure to show that they aren’t giving away green cards to foreigners who take jobs away from U.S. citizens. To help relieve the pressure, the law requires most
employers wanting to get a green card for a foreign worker to complete a process called labor certification.
Because there are annual limits on the number of people who can receive green cards through employment, you will most likely have to wait in line until a visa number becomes available. (You can’t get a green card until you’re given a visa number, regardless of whether you’re coming from outside or inside the United States.) Your place in the line is tracked by your Priority Date (the date on which your employer filed your labor certification or, where formal labor certification is not required, the date your application was filed at USCIS). It’s impossible to say exactly how long you will have to wait—it all depends on how many people are in line before you. In general, waiting periods tend to be longer for people from China, India, Mexico, and the Philippines, especially for non-skilled workers. This is not because of any discrimination against those countries—it simply reflects the fact that more people from those countries apply for visas than from other countries, and there is a per-country limit. The supply of visas for those countries is regularly less than the number of people applying for them, so a waiting list forms.
To check your visa priority date, or to get a general idea of the length of time a visa number will take to become available, you can check the US State Department’s Visa Bulletin Website. A Beaverton Oregon Immigration Lawyer can also help you determine which category would best suit your particular immigration situation.
