There are many ways to obtain a green card. Your United States immigration lawyer will review your information to determine the most appropriate method for you. Depending on whether your past or current job falls into certain categories, you may apply for U.S. immigration based on a specialized job. Inform your immigration lawyer if you are an Afghan or Iraqi translator, a Panama Canal employee, a NATO-6 nonimmigrant, or a broadcaster. You may also apply for a green card based on assistance you may have lent to the U.S. government as an Iraqi or Afghan. Armed forces members, religious workers, and physicians are other examples of specialized jobs.
Your immigration lawyer can help you fill out the necessary paperwork to apply for a green card. To apply based on a job specialization, you will need to submit Form I-360, Petition for Amerasian, Widow(er), or Special Immigrant. If you would like to read more about U.S. immigration through job specialization, your immigration lawyer may direct you to Section 101(a)(27) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
