Pathways To A Green Card
There are many categories of green cards, but the most commonly applied for are those that are employment-based, family-based, and humanitarian-based. Within each category, there are varying levels of preference. For example:
Employment-Based Visas (starting with highest preference)
EB 1: people with an extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, or athletics; or are outstanding professors or researchers
EB 2: people who hold advanced degrees in, or have exceptional ability in, the arts, sciences, or businesses and are active members of that profession; you will need to obtain a national interest waiver to be eligible for this category of green card
EB 3: professionals, skilled workers, and other workers; labor certification is required
EB 4: “special immigrants” such as religious workers, employees of U.S. foreign service posts, and others
EB 5: business investors who invest in certain commercial enterprises
Family-Based Visas (starting with highest preference)
F1: unmarried, adult sons and daughters of U.S. citizens who are over the age of 21
F2A: spouses and unmarried children of permanent residents who are under the age of 21
F2B: unmarried adult sons and daughters of permanent residents
F3: married sons and daughters of U.S. citizens of any age
F4: brothers and sisters of adult U.S. citizens
VAWA battered spouse
Victims of human trafficking
Victims of other serious crimes

Victims of natural disasters and other catastrophes
How Can A Green Card Give Me A Solid Foundation To Build My New Life In The U.S.?

If approved, you are able to live and work anywhere in the country.
