We GUIDE you in sponsoring family members
Immediate family • Fiancé • Spouse • Children
We personally guide U.S. citizens wishing to sponsor family members to enter the country through each step of the process. K1, K3, and K4 Visas are available to bring your fiancé, spouse, or children to the United States. Certain relatives must wait until a visa number is available before they can apply. If your relative qualifies as an immediate relative, an immigrant visa is always available.
Assisting in getting green cards for those already in the U.S.
If you have family already here in the country, submitting Form I-130 is the first step in helping an eligible relative apply to get a green card. The filing or approval of this petition does not give your relative any immigration status or benefit. Generally, once the petition is approved, your relative may apply to become a lawful permanent resident by filing form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status.
Employment-based immigrant visa
Work temporarily or permanently in the U.S.
A common way to work temporarily in the United States as a nonimmigrant is for a prospective employer to file a petition with USCIS for a B1 Visa on your behalf. If you have the right combination of skills, education, and/or work experience, you may be able to live and work permanently in the United States by seeking an employment-based immigrant visa.
If you live outside the United States and want to work here, you generally must apply for a B2 visa from the U.S. Department of State (DOS). In many cases, USCIS must approve your petition before you are eligible to apply to DOS for a visa or seek admission at a port of entry. Before entering the United States, you must present yourself to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer and receive permission to enter the United States and engage in your proposed activity.
academic or vocational studies in the U.S.
Full-time academic or vocational studies in the United States
If you wish to pursue full-time academic or vocational studies in the United States, you may be eligible for one of two nonimmigrant student categories. The “F” category is for academic students and the “M” is for vocational students. If you wish to participate in an exchange program you may be eligible for the “J” category for exchange visitors. The J visa program is for educational and cultural exchange programs.
