US immigration law allows for the immigration of foreigners to the United States based on their relationship to a US citizen or legal permanent resident (green card holder). US citizens may sponsor their spouses, parents, children, brothers, and sisters. Permanent residents may petition for their spouses and children. The sponsored relative becomes eligible to have his or her immigrant visa or Green Card application processed only if the visa petition is approved. Family based immigration falls under two basic categories: unlimited and limited.
The H1B visa is a nonimmigrant work visa used by aliens who will be employed temporarily in a specialty occupation. Specialty occupation is defined as an occupation that requires highly specialized knowledge and at least a bachelor’s degree in a related field. In certain cases, documented work experience may be accepted in lieu of a bachelor’s degree.
