What Is Immigration Law?
Immigration law is a broad area of law, but, at its core, it covers the policies and procedures that allow foreign nationals to enter and in some cases remain permanently in the U.S.
Visas permit individuals to come to the U.S., and there are many different types available. The U.S. Department of State outlines the various employment visas, which allow foreign nationals to come to the U.S. to work either on a permanent or a temporary basis. The U.S. Department of State also offers student visas to those wishing to study at certain schools in the U.S.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) administers two different types of investor visas which allow foreign investors to bring their business ventures to the U.S. USCIS also has various programs that permit U.S. citizens and permanent residents to apply for their family members to join them in the U.S.
Immigration policy also provides for a number of ways that a person’s immigration status may be compromised: for instance, if an individual has violated the terms of their particular visa, or a legal permanent resident has committed a deportable offense.
Additionally, in certain specific circumstances, individuals who may not qualify for a number of different statuses because of prior immigration violations or criminal records may nonetheless be admitted to the U.S. if they have been a victim of certain crimes or have come to the U.S. to seek asylum.
Types of Visas
- U Visa
- K Visa
