The possibility of immigration through relatives and getting a U.S. permanent residence
U.S. President Donald Trump has proposed to abolish the green card way for immigrants which were useful since 1990. Instead, it is proposed to adopt a new bill called ”The RAISE”, which provides for a new mechanism for the distribution of visas, based on the qualifications of the employee.
In addition, the document defines the limit for refugees who can permanently reside in the U.S. up to 50 thousand a year. So far, these proposals are only a draft law, and they will need to pass Congressional approval.
In theory, potential immigrants who consider the United States as an emigration country can increase their chances of receiving a green card in the following ways:
- if they learn English, and confirm the language knowledge of certificates. This can be done through a developed system of language courses in virtually all countries;
- if they can confirm and notify their university diplomas in the USA;
- if they will study in American universities and receive additional education through the system of grants;
- if they will practice and work in American or international companies, in which it is easier to confirm work experience.
All this will help to earn additional points that may prove critical if the Trump Immigration Reformation will still adopt.
Obtaining a permanent residence in the United States through family reunification is one of the most common ways of immigrating to the United States. If you have close relatives who are citizens of the United States (in some cases the green card holders are fit), then perhaps you have a chance to obtain on this basis a residence permit in the United States.
What is necessary for reunification?
So, family immigrants are allowed in the U.S. as a:
- Direct relatives
- Spouses of U.S. Unmarried minor children of U.S. citizens;
- Parents of U.S. citizens (in case, the sponsor is over 21 years old).
On the number of visas allocated annually for direct relatives, there are no restrictions.
- Family privileged system
- Adult children (married and unmarried), brothers and sisters of U.S. citizens;
- Spouses and unmarried children (adults and minors) of legal permanent residents.
There is a limited number of visas, allocated annually by the Family Preferential System.
