Overview of Permanent Residence
(“green cards”) for International Faculty, Staff, and Students
- Thursday, October 20th 2011 10:30am to 11:45am
This session will provide information about the routes to permanent residence (a “green card”). It will briefly address family-based immigration but focus on employment-based immigration. We will discuss the most common routes to permanent residence through employment and how one chooses the most appropriate route. In addition to providing an introduction to the labor certification process, the session will describe the immigrant petition, the adjustment of status application, and the required supporting documentation. The process for an accompanying spouse and children will be addressed. The session will also provide a brief overview of the options available to researchers who do not have permanent positions, for instance, post-docs.
