Working in the U.S. Without a Green Card? Learn How to Apply for One

There are many ways to obtain a green card as a worker. Some of the categories that may be approved for a worker’s green card are: offer of permanent employment, entrepreneurship, investment, special or particular skills. There are also certain fields of work currently allowing green card applications as workers. If you have a job offer for permanent work, you can apply for your green card from both inside and outside the U.S. but the procedure does differ.

If you are living in the U.S., you must first submit a petition for status as an immigrant worker. After your petition there is a waiting period for a visa. After your visa becomes available, you can apply for your green card as a permanent worker. Your ability to prove your eligibility as a permanent worker with a job offer will aid in the green card process.

If you are not yet living in the United States, submit your petition as a worker from your country of origin. After your application is submitted, there will be a waiting period for an available visa. Once your visa is approved, you may travel to the U.S. for residence.
