Immigration Law Questions? Ask an Immigration Lawyer.
He wants to move permanently .
Suad,There are only a few ways a person can move to the US permanently:- family based immigration, where a family member who is a US citizen or permanent resident files a petition on his behalf and sponsors his immigrant visa and green card.- employment based immigration, which requires the US government saying that an employer can hire a foreigner, and an employer to sponsor him for an employment based visa.- Diversity Visa Lottery, where only 55,000 are issued each year from all over the world- asylum/refugee status, which is very rare from Italy- immigrant investor visa, which requires the immigrant to invest at least $500,000 into a new or existing business in an area of high unemployment in the US. None of these are particularly "easy," since so many people want to immigrate to the US. If there is one of these that you would like me to explain, I can do that for you. I hope I have answered your questions. Keep in mind that I only get credit for my work if you rate me positively. If you're satisfied with my answer and my professionalism - not the outcome or the state of the law which I cannot control - please select a top-three rating. Again, if you feel the need to use "poor service" or "bad service," please ask follow-up questions instead, so that I can try to help you further. Remember that the bottom two negative ratings are used for Experts or professionals who are rude and/or bad at their job, and I'm confident you'll find me to be professional and truthful with you.A bonus is appreciated, if you feel I've earned it.If you want me to answer questions in the future, you can write "FOR LONGHORN" at the beginning of your question, or go directly to my question page here: Ask Longhorn LawyerThank you!
