What Is a Green Card ?

A Green Card, or Permanent Resident Card, is a special document issued by the United States to non-citizens, signifying their authorization for permanent residency. It grants the right to live, work, and study anywhere in the U.S. Eligibility for U.S. citizenship can be pursued after maintaining Green Card status for five years.


The Green Card offers permanent residency, stability, and numerous benefits, including unrestricted access to the job market, equal educational opportunities, Social Security benefits, and international travel flexibility. Most importantly, it serves as a pathway to U.S. citizenship, enabling additional rights like voting and sponsoring family members.

Now, let’s explore each of these green card categories in more detail.

Family-Based Green Card:
Immediate family members of US citizens or green card holders, including spouses, children, parents, and siblings with their spouses or children, can apply for a green card.  Widows or widowers of US citizens may also apply with proof of marriage. Extended family like cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents qualify if they have a close relative as a US citizen or green card holder.

Employment-Based Green Card:
Various workers can apply for permanent residency, and in some cases, their spouses and children may be eligible. Investors (EB-5) can invest $1 million or $500,000 in a high-unemployment or rural area to create employment. Recognition of achievements and experience is required, as per USCIS standards.

Diversity Lottery Green Card:
The Diversity Lottery Visa Program, also known as the US Green Card Lottery, randomly selects about 50,000 applicants worldwide. Eligibility often favors applicants from countries with low immigration rates to the US, such as Algeria, Lebanon, and Slovakia.
