Emigrate to America - Visa Information

The decision to move to the United States of America is not one to be taken lightly; it is a big move to an even bigger country. Equally, there are a tremendous number of visa types for temporary and permanent residence in the US. We've outlined a few of these visas below in simplified format, and this list is by no means exhaustive.

This should not be considered emigration or visa advice, and visa information can change quickly. For professional advice and the most up-to-date information, we strongly suggest that you contact the United States Department of State or the Embassy of the United States in London for up-to-date and thorough information on visas.

Non-immigrant Visas - Student & Employment Based

There are many types of non-immigrant visas, including visas for visitors to the United States. Below are some of the more popular non-immigrant non-tourist visas:

Student Visas

Other non-immigrant temporary visas

These visas are applied for by the employer, not the immigrant.

Immigrant Visas

An immigrant visa is required of anyone who wishes to enter the United States to live there permanently, whether or you plan to seek employment. These visas can lead to a green card.

All Immigrant Visa applicants, regardless of age, require a medical examination and vaccinations before the visa can be issued. The medical examination consists of a chest X-ray and blood test (including testing for sexually transmitted disease).

The Diversity Visa program

This is an annual programme commonly known as the Green Card Lottery, where 55,000 immigrant visas are selected randomly and issued to people from countries with low rates of immigration to the US. Eligibility to apply for this programme is determined by a person's place of birth, not citizenship, and you must apply to win.
