Benefits of the U.S. Green Card
As a permanent resident, you can live and work anywhere you want in the U.S. Say "goodbye" to sponsorship conversations, visa applications, and intent issues once you have your green card. Except for the ability to vote, U.S. permanent residents have all the same benefits as citizens.
Bring your family with you
Your spouse and qualifying children (unmarried and under 21) can live and work in the U.S. with you.
Save on university tuition
As green card holders, you and your family can become state residents and qualify for in-state tuition at local universities.
Entering the U.S. is easier as a permanent resident. U.S. Customs and Border Patrol can always deny entry to visa holders, but are required to allow entry for U.S. permanent residents.
Get on track to become a U.S. citizen
After three to five years as a permanent resident, you can apply for U.S. citizenship.
Employment-Based Paths to the U.S. Green Card
Each employment-based petition is different, but they all get you the same green card.
Qualify by meeting three or more Extraordinary Ability criteria, skip PERM, self-petition, and file with premium processing
Skip PERM by showing that your work has "national importance," self-petition, and file with premium processing.
Qualify with an Advanced Degree or Exceptional Ability, go through PERM labor certification process
