Application process for green card through job offer.



Let’s discuss in detail if you want to apply for a green card (permanent residence) based on the fact that you have a permanent employment opportunity in the United States, or if you are an employer that wants to sponsor someone for a green card based on permanent employment in the United States. Most employment petitions require a job offer and require that the employer petition for the worker unless you are eligible to petition for yourself.  Using Form I-140, Petition for Alien Worker most employers petition for an employee.

Information on application process

For employee who is living outside the United States:

When living outside the United States you can become a permanent resident through consular processing. Consular processing is when USCIS works with the Department of State to issue a visa on an approved Form I-140 petition when a visa is available.

For employee who is living in the United States:

Through adjustment of status when living inside the United States you can become a permanent resident. You can apply on Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, to become a permanent resident once the I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker, is approved and a visa number is available.

Documents for Form I-485 filing

Support evidences while filing Form I-485:

  • Form I-94, Arrival Departure Record or evidence of inspection, admission or parole into the United States
  • Submit a copy of the approval notice sent to you by the USCIS If you have already been approved for an immigrant petition
  • From your employer the job offer letter
  • Passport style two color photos taken within 30 days
  • For applicants between the ages of 14 and 79 Form G-325A, Biographic Data Sheet
  • Form I-693, Medical Examination. If you are applying based on continuous residence since before 1972, or if you have had a medical exam based on a fiancé visa this is not required.
  • Completed by the sponsor Form I-864, Affidavit of Support is required. If you are adjusting based on employment petition unless you or a relative own a percentage of the employer company this form is not required.
  • Other evidences establishing eligibility if any.
