How To Face The Rigors Of Immigrating To A New Country

A lot of people are immigrants, in fact, population statistics indicate that if it were not for immigrants, the population would be in decline. Failing to do this can result in you losing your job, being sued, or even being deported. This article goes over what you need to prevent these things from happening.

1. Welcome To Your New Country

You can't apply for citizenship without first getting a status of a permanant resident. To apply, you need to fill out government form number I- . This form can be obtained from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, also known as USCIS.

2. What Does A Green Card Mean

- You have the right to live in the country and not be deported
- If you leave the country, you can come back in simply by presenting your identification
- You may now be employed as long as it is legal work
- You may make a formal application for Citizenship, but there are no guarantees

3. Getting Your Citizenship

Full citizenship affords you many additional rights, such as the right to vote and run for office. It will also make the ownership of property much easier. You must have lived for several years in the country without exiting the borders to be considered for full citizenship.

4. Special Rules For Immigration

If you get married to a citizen or a permanant resident, your legal status can be upgraded to that same level. In order to do this, you must fill out a form and offer a photocopy of your marriage certificate. If you have lived continuously in the U.S. since any time in without leaving the country, you may be awarded citizenship automatically. Special treatment is often awarded to individuals seeking asylum or refugee status. Be ready to submit the I- form within days of entering the country.
