What Are the Requirements for a Green Card?

Each year there are a limited number of visas given out to individuals who want to become permanent residents of the United States, via a family sponsor, job opportunity, or special circumstance.

Current requirements for becoming a permanent resident of the U.S. include:

  • Eligibility in one of the immigrant categories established by the INA
  • A qualifying immigrant petition, from an employer or family member
  • An immigrant visa that is immediately available
  • The capability of being admitted into the United States

How Long Does It Take to Get a Green Card?

The process to get a green card can be a long, complicated, and very frustrating. The longest waiting period during this process comes during the petition phase, which can be anywhere from a few months to 10 years, as opposed to the visa approval phase, which takes only a few days to a few weeks. The amount of time depends of the type of green card an individual is applying for.

Common wait times for green cards are:

  • Immediate Relative Green Cards: within a few months
  • Diversity Green Cards: within seven months
  • Employment-Based Green Cards: one to four years
  • Family Preference Green Cards: one to ten years
