  • What is a "green card?"

    A person obtains a green card when he or she becomes a Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) of the United States, which occurs when an immigrant visa petition is approved. Usually, a green card holder can live and work in the USA without restriction. Green cards were not actually green for a long time, but the name derived from a period during the early 20th century when proof of permanent residence was issued in the form of a green coloured card. Since May 2010 when USCIS redesigned the card to fit its now infamous name, the card has been green again.

  • Can I enter the Diversity Visa Program (the "green card lottery")?

    Every year, individuals can enter the green card lottery online through the U.S. Department of State's official website. Entry is free of charge. In order to enter the diversity visa lottery, applicants must be from a country eligible to participate in the lottery (a Low Admission State), and must have either a high school diploma (or its equivalent), or at least two years of experience in an occupation requiring at least two years training or experience within five years of making the application. Unfortunately, individuals born in the UK (except Northern Ireland) are not eligible to apply for the green card lottery because the UK is considered a High Admission Region.

  • Why was I denied a visa at the U.S. Embassy?

    Being denied a U.S. visa is one of the most upsetting and frustrating experiences for visa applicants. There are many reasons why a visa may be denied, and you should have received a letter at the end of your interview at the consulate or embassy which specifies the reason for denial. The reasons can range from simple matters such as missing necessary documents or information, to more serious reasons such as having a past criminal conviction or having overstayed a previous U.S. visa. Some of the most common grounds for denial are 214(b) (lack of nonimmigrant intent) and 221(g) (administrative processing). Read more about visa denials here. Please contact the firm to discuss your situation in depth, preferably before attending a U.S. Embassy appointment. However, we are likely to still be able to help you even if you have been denied a visa to the USA.
