How to Immigrate to the US
Direct immigration involves a much shorter path to a Green Card, and in most cases, entails receiving an immigrant US visa. The immigrant visa can be obtained both while living in US territory or outside the US. For example, in Russia, immigrant visas are issued only at the US Embassy in Moscow. The interview in the embassy is one of the most crucial stages in the process, and is where you have to provide specific reasons for your petition.
Indirect immigration means that you enter the United States on a nonimmigrant visa and change your status during your stay in the country. The indirect immigration path is more time-consuming and more cost-intensive. However, for many people, it is the only option avaible for moving to the US. There are several ways to enter the US so that you can further apply for a change of status, either for that of an immigrant or nonimmigrant, which will lead to an immigrant status anyway.

Employment-based H-1B Visa
Suppose you have earned your reputation while working in the United States on an H-1B work visa. In that case, your US employer is unlikely to tolerate the idea of losing a highly qualified employee when your visa expires. If they act as your sponsor, you can legally obtain a permanent resident status through employment. Being a green card holder allows you and your family to stay in the United States permanently.Read more
Visa L-1 for Business People
A businessperson with a company outside the United States can open an affiliated entity of the same company in the US. To manage the affiliated company directly in the United States, they are entitled to visa L-1 for themselves and visa L-2 for their family members. If visiting the United States on a tourist visa, changing your status to a visa L holder is also possible. In other words, you don't have to receive an L visa at a consulate. At first, a visa L is issued for only one year. However, if the affiliated company has been operating successfully, you can apply for visa L to be issued for 3 years. Obtaining this type of visa also allows you to apply for a green card.Read more

It is also necessary to prove that you have worked full time in a religious organization for two years as of the day of filing the petition, and that you intend to continue working in the US. The category includes volunteers who work 40 hours a week.Read more
