Living in the U.S.

While there are visa categories that are very specific in terms of purpose and duration, individuals may also look to "immigrant visas" which allow one to remain in the U.S. indefinitely. Such permission from the U.S. government is available for those who have legal permanent resident status (commonly known as holding a "green card"). Such permission can be gained through a number of options: family, employment, accomplishment, investment, or even political.
