Legal PR is a person who is not a US citizen, but who has an immigration visa or who is the process of changing status and obtaining the citizenship. The status of the legal PR is confirmed by the GC, which is actually a permanent residence permit and work in the USA. On the other hand, non-immigrants are citizens of other countries who are allowed to enter the US for a limited period of time on the basis of a temporary visa. The non-immigrants include students, tourists, businessmen, senior executives and diplomats. But people living in the US on temporary visas have limited options when compared to citizens and lawful PR of the US. So let’s have a look!

How to enter the US as an Immigrant?

  • Immigration for Family reunification 

Citizens and PRs of the US enjoy the right to apply to the USCIS for deportation to their relatives of immigrant visas. Citizens of the US have the right to apply for the advantage of their parents, children, spouses, as well as siblings. However, legal PRs have the right to apply for an immigrant visa to their spouses and minor children who aren’t married. 

  • Working Immigration 

An American employer who wishes to hire a foreign worker with special qualifications might apply to the Citizenship and Immigration Service for an immigrant work visa that allows him/her the right to permanent residence and work in the US. However, the employer needs approval from the US Federal Employment Service for hiring a foreign employee.

  • Refugees 

A person who is persecuted at homeland because of membership in a particular racial or ethnic group, membership in social or political organizations, can apply to the US immigration authorities for asylum in the US. 

In majority of cases, a foreigner has the right to apply with a petition to gain recognition as a refugee within a year of his arrival in the US. And after one year, the refugee may apply to the Citizenship and Immigration services with a request for changing the status to a legal PR of the US, which enables him/her to work in the US.
