We Can Help You Get a Visa
Nearly 10.5 million people are granted either permanent residency or a temporary stay each year, according to the Bureau of Consular Affairs. People come to the U.S. for a lot of different reasons.
Some wish to visit, some wish to study, and some hope to make the United States their home. The type of visa that suits you depends largely upon your reason for travel. While listing every single category is beyond the scope of this page, below are examples of some of the types of visas and green cards issued each year.
- Immediate relative and family-sponsored visas (IR visas, K visas, F visas)
- Employment-based visas (E and S visas)
- B visas (temporary business, tourism, pleasure)
- J visas (visitors in an exchange program, e.g., interns, physicians, au pairs)
- I visas (members of foreign media and press)
- P visas (athletes, entertainers, artists)
- H visas (certain specialty occupations)
- F and M visas (educational and vocational students)
- DV visas (visa lottery program)
Because each visa has its own unique requirements, you should discuss your goals, purpose of travel, and background info with an immigration attorney at our firm before beginning an application. Your immigration lawyer will be able to determine if you qualify and which steps you need to take.
