Green Card for employment

You can get a green card, or a permanent resident card, on the basis of your employment with a U.S. company. At Poarch Thompson Law, our experienced immigration attorneys can answer all of your questions about getting an employment-based green card.

How to get an employment Green Card

If you’re seeking an employment green card, there are four basic avenues you can use:

  1. Job offer: You can get a formal job offer from a U.S. company and then apply for a green card.
  2. Self-promotion: If you have extraordinary abilities or the government decides it is in the national interest to allow you to move to the U.S., you can get a green card. You should get an attorney’s help for these processes.
  3. Investment: If you can create ten new jobs in the U.S. with your business, you can apply for an EB-5 green card.
  4. Special immigrants: There are a few other immigrant types that can qualify for work-based visas. We list them below, in the EB-4 category.

Consular Processing

Many of those who get employment green cards will use consular processing, which means you’ll wait in your home country while your visa is processed and submit your form to your nearest U.S. Embassy or consulate.

Eligibility for Adjustment of Status

If you are in the United States, you may adjust your status to move from your EB-1 visa or another employment visa to permanent resident status. Whether and when you can adjust your status depends both on the type of visa you have and your country of origin.
