Permanent Visa

An Introduction To Permanent Visa

A Permanent Resident card, or “green card,” is a plastic card with the individual’s biographic information, photo, fingerprint, and expiration date issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

It authorizes the green card holder the right to live and work in the United States indefinitely.

Because at one time, it was green, it keeps its nickname up to today. It is also known as an “Alien Registration Card” and “Form I-551”.

While the green card has an expiration date (10 years) and has to be renewed, the green card holder’s status as “lawful permanent resident” is still valid unless the status is abandoned or revoked by U.S. government.

The US immigration process is complex and can be intimidating for the newcomer or visitor to the US. While there are many resources to help individuals going through the US immigration process, the process can be so complicated and expensive that many immigration applicants wonder whether they need to hire a immigration specialist in order to apply for their needed immigration process.
