Eligibility for naturalization

Pennsylvania residents who are interested in becoming U.S. citizens may wonder if they are eligible for naturalization. Generally, people must have been permanent residents of the U.S. for a certain number of years in order to apply, although that requirement does not apply for certain members of the military.

Special immigrant religious workers and EB-4 visas

Many people who are considering immigrating to Pennsylvania or other areas of the United States are religious workers who want to enter the country to perform their religious groups' missions. Special considerations exist in immigration laws that often allow these religious workers to come to the U.S. to perform their duties.

What are the benefits of becoming a U.S. citizen?

As Pennsylvania residents may know, the transition from being a foreign national with the right to reside legally within the United States and U.S. citizenship is called naturalization. While it may take effort, there are considerable benefits involved. It also allows individuals to become an intricate part of the country they wish to call home.

What is an employment based visa?

Families with immigrant relatives living in Pennsylvania may be interested in learning more obtaining employment-based visas. Some of these visas allow children and spouses to follow-to-join or accompany employment-based immigrants. Each year, about 140,000 employment-based visas are made available to immigrants who are qualified applicants. In order to be considered for the visa, a prospective employer must receive the Department of Labor's approval for labor certification.

How does naturalization work?

Families in Pennsylvania might benefit from understanding more about the naturalization process and how it works. Naturalization describes the process people born in other countries voluntarily undergo in order to be recognized as a citizen of the United States. People who complete the process will be privy to rights granted exclusively to U.S citizens, such as bringing relatives into the country, the right to vote and the right to obtain citizenship for children born overseas.
