For many people, a visa is the only possible path to living and working in the United States. There are different reasons for applying for a visa outside of relocating to this country as well. If you are considering a visa application, the team at Diamondback Legal is ready to help.
One of the most common reasons to seek a visa is to obtain a green card and immigrate to the United States. With an immigrant visa, you could even have a path to citizenship over time. Certain employment visas provide this path to citizenship, although the most common immigrant visa involves being sponsored by a family member.
There are visa programs that have nothing to do with immigrating to the U.S, however. You will also need a visa to come to the country for a temporary stay as well. This is the case for a wide range of non-immigrant visas. Some let you work in the country while others allow you to live and further you education. There are also short-term visas that allow you to vacation to the country or visit a sick relative.
A big part of the process is determining which of the available visa options is right for you. The team at Diamondback Legal could review your options and help you determine which visa is appropriate.
