United States of America is always on the top list for the people who wish to migrate to other countries for better living and better life.As everyone know this country has so many good opportunities for better earning,better studies and better life, so it become the prior choice of every migrant. But the immigration laws and rules of US are very complex and difficult. It is not so easy to enter into this country. Today,though the citizenship process is still too long, the US is accepting more migrants as permanent residents than any other country.

So it is important to know all the laws and processes of US immigration, Some are shown below:


The first step in immigrating to US is to get a visa. There are many types of visas which allows different activities in the country. For example, Tourist Visa.People who enter into the US through valid  tourist visa are usually allowed to change their status to permanent resident or temporary worker.


After transferring the Visa, a person can become the permanent resident and can apply for the green card. A green card is a proof of permanent resident status. Issue of green card means that the person has the full right to live and work in the US and they can also apply for full citizenship.Other means of getting US green card rather than transferring visa is through  marriage or by becoming eligible for permanent residency through work.


Full citizenship is the final step in US immigration process. A permanent resident can apply for full citizenship after a certain period of time. Getting full citizenship means the residents can have all the rights and facilities same as the native citizen. In order to become a citizen, a person must be able to speak English, pass a US citizenship test and have all other required qualifications.


Sometimes before getting citizenship, immigrants can also be deported to their home countries from the US. Deportation can occurs due to many reasons such as improper documentation and approval,filing visa incorrectly, committing crimes etc. So knowing and obeying all immigration law and rules is very important if anyone wishes to become a legal US citizen.
