About Migration to the USA
U.S. immigration legislation can be bewildering for would-be migrants. One is faced with over 100 different kinds of visa to choose from - only one of which is likely to be exactly right for you! Furthermore, many classes of visa are restricted by a quota, which limits the number of people that will be accepted each year.

The US permanent residence visa is known as the Green Card, which identifies the holder as a permanent resident of the United States. Green Cards in certain categories can be obtained fairly quickly. In other categories, even if you have the strongest qualifications possible, it can still take months or years to obtain your status due to the quota system and ever-changing immigration policies.

There are numerous kinds of non-immigrant, or temporary, visas. Unlike Green Cards, which are identical once allocated, temporary visas differ from each other in the benefits they offer, as well as how long they last. Most importantly, your application will be processed much faster if your intention is not to take up permanent residence right from the start.
