here are various types of visa applications for your specific immigration situation. Rock Island based Illinois lawyer Marriett Legal can advise you on your specific visa questions. The United States Department of State website lists the following:


Step 1

In general, to be eligible to apply for an immigrant visa, a foreign citizen must be sponsored by a U.S. citizen relative(s), U.S. lawful permanent resident, or by a prospective employer, and be the beneficiary of an approved petition filed with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). For petition information, visit the USCIS website. Learn about the different processes for the major immigrant categories, which are:

Immediate Relative and Family Sponsored
Employment-Based
Special Immigrants
Diversity Visa Program

Visas provided are drawn from countries with low rates of immigration to the U.S. Unlike other immigrant types, diversity visas (DV) do not require a U.S. sponsor, and therefore a petition is not needed.
