The United States allows immigrants to enter the country through a variety of different sponsorship programs. Each of these programs has its own set of requirements and qualifications that must be met in order for an individual to be eligible for sponsorship.
This program allows U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to sponsor certain family members for immigration. Eligible family members include spouses, children, parents, siblings, and fiancés. Spouses and minor children of U.S. citizens are given priority under this program.
This program allows employers to sponsor foreign workers for permanent residence. In order to qualify for sponsorship, the foreign worker must have a job offer from a U.S. employer and must meet certain qualifications, including education and experience requirements.
This program is designed to provide protection to those who are fleeing persecution or other serious harm in their home countries. Individuals who qualify for humanitarian programs include refugees, asylees, victims of human trafficking, and other special immigrants.
The Diversity Lottery Program is designed to promote immigration from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States. This program randomly selects applicants from countries that have sent fewer than 50,000 immigrants to the U.S. in the past five years.
This program allows foreign investors to gain permanent residence in the United States. In order to qualify, investors must invest at least $500,000 in a new or existing business and create at least ten full-time jobs for U.S. workers.
While some of these visas can be sponsored by family members or employers, many of them do not require sponsorship.
