As the process of immigrating to the USA is expensive and time-consuming, you may wish to begin working in the USA as soon as possible after your green card has been approved. Under the Blue Card program, you may be able to do just that by applying for an Employment Authorization Document, or EAD card. If you’re already in the US with an H1B visa, you may also be eligible to apply for an EAD card after your current visa expires. Find out how you can get a blue card in this comprehensive guide to getting a blue card in the USA as a new immigrant!

 

The basics about getting a green card

The green card process is started when you file an application for an immigrant or nonimmigrant visa at a U.S. embassy or consulate, after you enter the country legally with your temporary status. You can also apply for permanent residence, or ‘adjustment of status,’ within the United States if you have been living here for one year or longer and have been granted permission to work, which can be applied from inside the country only with work permit processing time, work visa.

 

 

The process, timeline and costs

The process of obtaining a blue card is straight-forward and only requires providing some basic information. It typically takes approximately 60 days for work permit processing time, after which time the applicant will be able to apply for their work visa. A minor hurdle may occur at that point depending on the country they are originally from.

 

 

Finding an immigration lawyer

The first step is seeking out an immigration lawyer. The attorney will want to know when you plan on traveling, how long you plan on staying, and your field of work. These answers will help determine whether or not your travel plans would qualify for a permit to work while on an H-1B visa.

 

 

Where to find your Green Card interview letter

Your Greencard interview letter is your permit to work. This is where you will list your intended employment, which employer you will be working for, and what date you will start work. Write this letter on an A4 piece of paper or similar sized document. If you cannot find an actual green card interview letter (they are sometimes very long), then a standard employment contract can be used instead.

 

Do you need travel insurance?

It’s important to have travel insurance when you plan on traveling. Some countries require it for visitors and others recommend it. One of the best options for U.S. travelers is a blue card which can be obtained by becoming an immigrant with a green card or by being granted refugee status or asylum within the U.S. Keep in mind that not all travel insurance will cover immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers; so check with your provider before purchasing coverage to make sure that they’ll cover you during your trip

 

 

The green card interview (How to succeed at the green card interview)

The Greencard interview (officially called Consular Processing) is not something that you should fear. It is rather quite straightforward and something you can be prepared for! The Consular Processing interview will involve two interviews, one with a U.S. Embassy or Consulate Officer, and one with an Immigration Officer from the USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services).
In the embassy or consulate interview, there are no wrong answers – only yes or no answers.

 

 

What happens after your interview?

After your interview, it is possible that you are either denied or granted provisional status. If you are denied, you will be given information on how to appeal and there will be no requirement for you to leave the country. If you were granted provisional status, then congratulations! You have successfully transitioned from an undocumented immigrant into a legal resident of the United States!

 

 

When will I get my green card?

You will get your green card once you are approved by USCIS. Once they approve you, they will send a packet with all of the forms that you will need to fill out, sign and then send back. You should include copies of these forms in your envelope as well so if something happens and they don’t send it on time, you can print it off of your computer.

 

 

Key factors that can affect your case

There are several factors that may affect your ability to obtain a blue card. For example, those with poor credit will find it more difficult than those with good credit, and being an illegal immigrant can often make things more difficult than if you have entered legally. The size of your family will also play a role in whether or not you are eligible for obtaining blue card status; as well as your reason for coming to the United States and how long you have lived here.
