Immigration Green card versus Certificate of Citizenship

Jun 1st 2015 at 11:42 PM

Any individual will be on the mountain top, when a dream comes true, when the Certificate of Citizenship comes into reality. To be a citizen is entirely different from being a permanent resident of United States of America. Being a citizen, you have all rights of a native, whereas a green card holder will have only permission to stay and work in the United States of America which needs renewal after every ten years. Any one, who dreams to continue stay at United States of America, should choose to apply for US Citizenship.

There is only one way to apply for US Citizenship, if you are green card holder, you need to wait for some years before filling up the application for Citizenship. Whoever, wants to immigrate to US, there needs to be a lawful permanent residence for which they need to submit the immigration forms. These immigration forms are usually in the form of petitions for family member, employee, refugees, spouses often termed as “sponsored”. After which, the Immigration Green card is made available for the eligible candidates. This eventually helps them in applying for US Citizenship.

By being a US Citizen, he or she gets the right to vote and are not subject to deportability that can be a threat to the ones who hold an Immigration green card. These processes of receiving and scrutinizing these application forms are done by U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Even before the Immigrant Application process needs to be started, the Petition or the Immigration Form needs to be approved by the USCIS. The first step is to file the petition/Immigration form which would fall under various categories like Petition for relative, spouse, employee, employer, etc. The second step is the approval received from the USCIS.

To obtain an Immigration Card, National Visa Center does pre-processing of these petitions which are approved, by way of collecting visa fees, forms, documents from the applicant and the sponsors, etc. Then, there would be a cut-off date given to the applicant and it depends on the availability and certain set of laws. Generally, after these steps, the applicant would receive a letter or an email from National Visa Center, contains the rest of the general information on the immigration green card process. Lastly, need to choose an agent to act on your behalf to complete this procedure.
