Ellensburg, WA asked in Immigration Law for Washington

Q: Am I eligible for a green card?


My name is Mohammed and I have a few questions regarding my eligibility for a green card. I just finished the university and got my degree. I have an F1 student visa and a OPT permit as well. What are my options that I have for a green card? I would really want one for more job opportunities within my major, as all the jobs require a green card.

Thank you,

A: For a green card, there are some options:

1) you could get married to a US citizen

2) an EB visa. There are EB1 (A, B, C), EB2, EB2 with a National Interest Waiver, EB3. If you just graduated with a bachelor degree, then an EB3 would fit. For a Master's degree, an EB2 (possibly with an NIW) would fit. I would need to know much more to give you better fits. Research both and contact a lawyer to help you with it as they are complicated processes.
