Additional Types of Visas

What additional types of visas are there?

There is a wide variety of the different types of visas, all of which come with very rigorous sets of eligibility requirements and specific details. Depending on the category that an individual falls under, whether for personal issues, familial reasons or business affairs, some visas may be lawfully permanent or temporary. As the terms of visas can be difficult to decipher, calling an immigration attorney will help you through the process.

To learn how we can help, call Maney | Gordon | Zeller, P.A. today at (800) 708-4399.

Various additional permanent visas include:

  • F-1 Academic Student Visas
  • K-1 Fiancée Visas
  • EB-1 Foreign Nationals of Extraordinary Ability, Outstanding Professors and Researchers and Multinational Executive and Managers
  • EB-2 Workers with Advanced Degrees or Exceptional Ability in the Sciences, Arts or Business
  • EB-3 Skilled Workers and Professionals
  • EB-4 Special Immigrant Visas for Religious Workers
  • EB-5 Investor/Employment Creation Visas
  • DV-1 Visas (The "Green Card Lottery"): for nations that are underrepresented in the immigration pool, a random drawing allots 55,000 visas annually
  • Refugee and Asylum Applications: for an individual who legitimately fears persecution based on race, nationality, race, membership in a social group or political opinion
  • Temporary Protected Status: for an individual who is natively from a country that the United States currently deems unsafe. Subject to periodic INS reviews, the individual is granted a temporary stay, but is not given a visa
  • TN Status: for certain Canadian and Mexican workers to bypass the visa application process by presenting the required documents at a United States port

Persons with visas are permitted to travel abroad and return as long as the primary residence is within the United States. Unless a person is married to a U.S. citizen, the normal duration of time it takes to become a U.S. citizen is five years from the date that a green card was received. If a person is abroad for six months or more, it may void any time previously counted toward a future citizenship.
