Benefits of Holding a Green Card

Though many temporary visas can be a significant stepping stone towards achieving the American dream, a green card grants rights and benefits that can have a huge impact on the LPR’s future.

Lawful permanent residents can:

  • Leave or enter the U.S. without the risk of being denied entry (so long as they travel with their green card)
  • Apply for government-sponsored aid for education
  • Save money on university and college as opposed to foreign nationals
  • Work in the U.S. without employer sponsorship
  • Start a business in the U.S.
  • Receive Social Security benefits if they worked for 10 years before retiring
  • Enjoy nearly all rights of citizens under U.S. law except the right to vote

How to Obtain a Green Card

Those interested in applying for a green card must first qualify by meeting certain requirements. There are a few different ways that a foreigner can qualify.

You may obtain a green card through:

  • Family: Certain relatives of U.S. citizens or those engaged to a U.S. citizen may be eligible for permanent residency
  • Employment: The PERM process allows certain foreigners to obtain a green card to work in the U.S.
  • Special immigrant status: Religious workers, international broadcasters, special immigrant juveniles, immigrant investors, and certain other immigrants may be eligible for a green card
  • Refugee or asylee status: You can obtain a green card if you were granted asylum status or admitted as a refugee at least one year ago
  • Status as a victim of human trafficking or abuse: Individuals who have left their home country as the victims of human trafficking, crime, or battery or extreme cruelty can be granted permanent residency
