Qualifying for a Visa

Choose a Charleston Immigration Visa Lawyer with Decades of Experience

Depending on your specific circumstance and the reason for entering into the United States, you will need a certain type of visa. As your Charleston Immigration Attorney, we can help you determine the appropriate type of visa for your needs. Whether you have business needs, you are hoping to study abroad or you want to be reunited with a relative who is a United States citizen, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) can issue you a specific visa for your individual purposes. Below, we have included a list of the most frequent categories of visas you may need to obtain access to the United States.

Family Unification Visas
A foreign national with the desire to become a legal permanent resident of the United States based on a family relationship must meet specific eligibility requirements. Your relative who is a citizen of the United States will need to provide proof that he or she meets the required income level to initially support you when you come to the country. The USCIS will have to approve the immigrant visa, I-130, which is a petition for alien relative.

Employment Visas
There are different categories for employment-based immigration visas, including priority workers, professionals, skilled and unskilled workers, special immigrants, and immigrant investors. Under the current U.S. immigration laws, each fiscal year, a certain number of foreigners can obtain immigrant visas for the specific purpose of employment in the American work force.

There are provisions under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) for the admission of professionals from Canada and Mexico into the United States. Both Canadian and Mexican professionals have to submit a letter from the U.S. employer who is offering employment. These visas can last up to three years. Spouses and children of the workers may also be admitted into the country.

Student Visas
Foreign students wishing to further their education in the United States can obtain a student-based visa. Before they can enter the country to study, even if they have been accepted by an educational institution, they will have to obtain an F visa or M visa. Students of all ages and with a variety of educational goals can obtain student visas for the purpose of studying abroad in the United States.
