HOW TO OBTAIN PERMANENT RESIDENCY IN THE U.S.

If you are a citizen of a country other than the United States, you can become a permanent resident. Despite some myths about citizenship, there are some fairly straightforward ways to gain it.

FAMILY-BASED CITIZENSHIP 

The easiest way to gain U.S. citizenship to to be a direct relative of a U.S. citizen. This includes spouses, parents and children. There are four preference categories, but they are dependent on a person’s age, relation to the citizen and their marital status. For example, an unmarried child of a citizen who is under 21 years old first preference to citizenship. A brother or sister of the citizen has the lowest preference.

EMPLOYEE-BASED CITIZENSHIP 

If you are a foreign employee of a. U.S.-based country and working in the U.S., you can gain citizenship. There are five preference

categories for permanent residency based on employment. The preference categories depend on your job skills and need.
