What Is A Green Card?
A green card is a common term used for obtaining a status known as permanent residency. This means you are a permanent resident of the United States, with most of the rights and obligations of a citizen. It is called a green card simply because the identification card for permanent residents is green.
How you obtain a green card depends on your:
- Family: Being closely related to someone who is a United States citizen can be grounds for obtaining a green card. U.S. citizens can apply to have their spouses, unmarried children and parents to join them in the United States. Once here, these relatives can begin the process of obtaining their own permanent residency as part of the naturalization process.
- Employment: Certain highly skilled workers are needed in the country and there is a shortage of some of these workers. People from other countries who are hired in the US to fill these positions could obtain green cards. Even people here on work visas who are not here in a highly skilled position can work to obtain a green card eventually.
- Status as a refugee: Refugees and people in the United States seeking asylum can receive protection from deportation and removal. They can also receive deferred action if they qualify, which means they will not be deported even if there are technically not legally authorized to be in the country. Refugees and asylum seekers can go through a process to obtain green cards.
