Move to the US

Are you a Canadian citizen or other foreign national who wants to move to the United States? You can’t just move to the United States permanently, even if you’re a Canadian citizen. However, there are ways you can move to the United States when you go through the proper immigration channels. Immigrate to NYC

Even when you do it the right way, that doesn’t mean that obtaining permanent residence (also called a Green Card) in the United States is an easy process. Many people want to move to the United States permanently, and as such it is not meant to be quick or simple.

Ways of obtaining permanent residence in the United States

Spousal Sponsorship: If you have married someone who is a green card holder in the United States, or who is an American citizen, you can apply for permanent residency through spousal sponsorship. Your spouse will have to meet some significant requirements relating to income in order to sponsor you.

Employer-based Petitions: Your employer in the United States can apply to sponsor you to live in the United States permanently if you are already working in the US on a certain work visa.

Family Sponsorship: Close relatives can sponsor you to the United States similar to how a spouse would be able to, although there are strict requirements relating to the relationship between the spouse and sponsor.

Obtaining permanent residency in the United States can be very time consuming, as well as complicated. You must be prepared with the proper documentation and paperwork, while also being ready to deal with the United States immigration department if they have any questions for you.
