How long does getting a green card take?
Thanks for your question! However, the answer to it heavily depends on several different factors including, among other things:The type of green card you are seekingYour current qualificationsYour country of originThe service center that is processing your petitionAs such, I’ll go over the basic processing times for the broader categories of green cards to cover the basics. A green card is referred to as an “immigrant visa” by the USCIS. This is in contrast to the temporary “nonimmigrant visas” such as the H-1B. A green card grants the holder lawful permanent residence in the U.S., allowing that person to enjoy many of the benefits that citizens have.The main steps to most green cards are these:Your sponsor files a petitionThe USCIS receives and processes your petitionYou wait for your priority date to be currentYou either file to adjust your status or go through conprocessingYou receive your green cardHere is a quick rundown on priority dates if you are not familiar with them. The date that the USCIS receives your petition becomes your personal priority date. Each month, the Department of State releases “final action dates” in a visa bulletin that you will need to keep track of. The final action dates are divided according to the type of green card as well as the beneficiary’s country of origin. Once your priority date matches or passes the date in your section, you can move onto the next step toward your green card. Keep in mind that this step could take no time at all or it could take years. It all depends on which section you are in. For example, someone from India who is applying for an F-4 green card will find much longer waiting times than someone from El Salvador who is applying for an EB-2 green card.There are several different avenues that you can use to obtain a green card, many of which have to do with your sponsor.Family-Based ImmigrationIf you decide to get your green card through your family, you will need a sponsor who is either a U.S. citizen or a green card holders themselves. Your processing time will heavily depend on who your sponsor is. If your sponsor is a U.S. citizen who is an immediate relative (such as a spouse, child, adopted orphan, or parent), then you will not have to wait for your priority date to be current before moving onto the next step. There are always visas available for immediate relatives.On the other hand if you are a married child, a child over the age of 21, or a sibling of a U.S. citizen or if you are the spouse or child of a green card holder, you will need to use the F classification of green cards. These almost always have long priority date waiting times, so you will need to check the visa bulletin to determine how long it will take for your green card.Employment-Based ImmigrationFor those that wish to have their sponsor be their employer rather than a family member, there are five main preference levels of green cards that can be avenues for you to get your immigrant visa.EB-1: This is for aliens with extraordinary achievement, outstanding researchers and professors, and multinational executives and managers.EB-2: This for those who have exceptional ability, those that have advanced degrees (master’s or higher), and those that qualify for a National Interest Waiver (which will allow you to self-petition).EB-3: This is for professionals (bachelor’s degree holders), skilled workers (with two or more years of experience), and other workers (with fewer than two years of experience).EB-4: This for specialty workers. Click here to see the list of occupations that qualify.EB-5: This green card is based on your investment rather than your employer. You need to invest at least $1 million in a U.S. business or $500,000 in a U.S. business in a rural or underemployed area.The EB-1, EB-2, EB-4, and EB-5 tend to have short priority date waiting periods, but that fluctuates regularly. Occasionally, the EB-1 category will be oversubscribed and the dates will backlog for several years. Like with the family-based immigration, it all depends on which visa you are applying for and where you’re from. The more people from your country that petition for your same green card, the more backlogged the dates will become.Keep in mind that, if your priority date will not be current for some time, the USCIS may wait to begin processing your petition until that time is closer. You must wait until both your priority date is current and your petition is approved before moving onto the next step.Premium ProcessingFor many cases involving the I-130 and the I-140 petitions, the USCIS takes an average of six months to process them, all things being equal. This is dependent on the particula service center that is processing the petition. If they are busy, it may take longer.One way to get around this is to use premium processing. This is an optional feature that is only available to certain green cards that use the I-140 (the EB-1C and EB-2 NIW are excluded from premium processing). By paying the $1,225 fee and filling out an I-907 form, you can have your processing time shortened to just 15 calendar days. Keep in mind that this does not improve your chances of being approved and you will still need to wait until your priority date is current. So premium processing is primarily useful for those with current priority dates or no dates at all (like for immediate relatives).Adjustment of StatusOnce your priority date is current and your petition has been approved, you can choose one of two options. If you are currently in the U.S. at this point under a valid nonimmigrant visa, you have the option to simply adjust your status from nonimmigrant to immigrant. To do so, you need to submit an I-485 form and wait the six months for approval. Premium processing is not available to speed up the I-485.ConProcessingOn the other hand, if you are outside the U.S. and not under a valid visa status, you will need to use conprocessing. This means that you will need to travel to the U.S. consulate or embassy in your home country to participate in a one-on-one interview with a conofficer. While this may seem less convenient, it could be the faster and also the cheaper option depending on your situation. Conprocessing is available to those that are inside the U.S., but is mandatory for those that are not. You will need to allow for several weeks for the the Consulate to schedule an appointment and for that appointment date to come.RFEsIf your petition is lacking in certain documents to support your petition (such as a marriage certificate, degree, or passport copy), then the USCIS may send a Request for Evidence (RFE) rather than reject your petition outright. If you receive an RFE, don’t panic. Just be sure to hand it to your attorney, who will help you respond in an effective and timely manner. RFEs can greatly affect the time it takes to process your petition.So there you have it. There are many different kinds of green cards and each one has a different processing time. It also changes depending on your country of origin, your particular situation. Even though I don’t know which green card you are interested in, I hope that this gives you a better idea of what the processing time will be like. Of course, your immigration attorney can give you a better idea of the time it will take.This answer is not to be considered as a substitute for legal advice and does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
How long does it take for one to get a US green card through their parents if the parents are green card holders?
The answer depends on three factors: your age, your marital status, and your country of citizenship.To determine how long your wait will be, first, determine which category you are in.If you are under 21 and unmarried (this includes being divorced), you are in the F2A category. If you are 21 or old and unmarried, you are in the F2B category.If you are married, you are out of luck. No matter what age you are, if you are married your parent cannot sponsor you for a green card as long as they are a permanent resident. You'll have to wait until they naturalize (more about that below).Next, check out the current visa bulletin here: Visa Bulletin. In the bulletin, match up the row of your category with the column of your country of citizenship. If you are from anywhere other that India, Mexico, China, or the Philippines, your column will be "all chargeability areas except those listed." The date in the box where your country and category intersect is the "priority date" that USCIS is currently processing. (Your own "priority date" will be the date your I-130 was filed with USCIS.) For instance, as I write in April of 2022. the current priority date for F2Bs from Mexico is May 1, 1993. That means in April of 2022. USCIS was accepting green card applications from people in the F2B category who filed their I-130s on May 1, 1993 or before. (Yes, that means those people have been waiting 21 years!) The current priority date for F2Bs from, say, Turkey, however, us September 8, 2013--not even a year ago.If your parent has filed an I-130 for you and your circumstances change while you are waiting for your priority date to become current (you turn 21 or get married, for example), one of two things will happen: either you will automatically move to a different category, or your application will be terminated. If after the change you are still eligible for a different category, you will automatically move to that category, but you will get to keep your original priority date. For instance, if you were in the F2A category for unmarried under-21 children and then you turn 21, you will automatically move to the F2B category for unmarried 21 or over sons and daughters of LPRs, and your priority date will still be the day you filed your original I-130 for the F2A category. If after that you parents then naturalize, you will automatically move again, this time to the F1 category for married sons and daughters of US citizens.If the change leaves you ineligible for another category, however, your application will be terminated, even if you later become eligible again. For instance, permanent residents cannot sponsor married children, but citizens can. If you get married while your parent is still a resident, you are no longer eligible for any category and your application will be terminated. This is true even if your parent naturalizes the day after your wedding and is then able to sponsor you as a married son or daughter. Because you married before the naturalization, you lost your chance to automatically move to the new category and keep your original priority date. Your parent will have to file a new I-130 and you will get a new priority date.

How long does it take to get a green card interview through marriage?
Actually it is not my personal question. Generally under present circumstances and USA government rule position , if you married American , it takes one year (apprxmtly) to obtain the green card. Any how as per the real condition, the answer for this question is pending with the government because we don't know that how much time takes to get green card as per prescribed rules that are existing. It is different that the time taken to get GC from country to country i.e. if you married with American you will get with in one year and if it is with UK, Australia, Canada and Soudhi the time you can espect early comparatively with India. Actually the time bounded, we could not able to tell. It is depend upon by the US government. But one thing is sure if you married other than Indian, there is scope to get early but correct time we could not declared.
How long does it usually take to get a green card through a job offer?
Getting a green card through a company could have variable timelines depending on two important factors:Your qualifications.Your country of birth.I will assume that you fall under the EB2 category of experienced, skilled professionals and that you are not from China or India, countries for which there is a years long backlog.The steps are as follows, assuming everything is going smoothly:Recruitment - 2 to 4 months.PERM filing - 4 to 8 months, add a year if there is an audit.Concurrent I140 and I485 - anywhere from 5 months to over a year in some cases, including a month for preparation.If you are subject to backlog than its a different story. Indians who had their first PERM filed (priority date) in 2022 can only have their I485 processed now.
After a US green card holder files the petition for his wife, how long does it take for her to get into the US?
A spouse of a US Greencard Holder is not considered an immediate category, meaning there is a line for getting the immigration visa.According to the May 2022 Visa Bulletin, the applications currently processed were filed in Nov 2022 (August 2022 for those born in Mexico). Add 6-12 months of bureaucracy on top of that, and you get something around two years.
After marrying a US citizen, how long does it take to get a green card?
It depends on your country of origin and your specific case.Marrying a US citizen puts you in the first priority for your country (“spouses and minor children of US citizens”) and the per county quota does not apply to you. But you are still processed according to the timelines published in the Visa Bulletin for your country of origin as “priority dates”. See https://my.uscis.gov/helpcenter/...You can and should apply immediately.Based on the month you applied you will be given an approximate month and year (around 6 months max for “oversubscribed” countries but check the bulletin). Because things change, the bulletin is published monthly and it may extend or reduce the estimated time, so check every month if you are the nervous type.Things like a criminal record, etc, will delay and may (or may not) delay or derail your application. But it’s very important not to lie. Lying is much, much worse than admitting to things.When you apply you will get an “A” number. Using that number you can check the status of your specific case on their website. You can also sign up for text notifications when something changes.
How long does it take to get Canadian Permanent Residence?
If one is interested to immigrate to Canada as PR under express entry program, it would take around 9–16 months depending on which stage you are right now.It takes 1–2 months to take IELTS dates, specially now that everyone is interested to move to Australia/Canada, getting test dates is difficult.It takes around 1–2 months to get education assessment done which you can do in parallel with IELTS preparation. You also need to gather letter of reference from your all you employers which would take at least 1–2 months as large organizations are slow in issuing such letters , some might not even prletters so you have to arrange for an affidavit. Getting police clearance from all countries where you have stayed for 6+ months, if stayed in USA for 6+ months count atleast 6–8 weeks to get police clearance. In india if you passport address is same as your current residential address you will get PCC in a day else it takes 1 month.Arranging proof of funds from bank would take 1 week depending up if you have sufficient balance or need to liquidate some investments.Once you have good score in IELTS and your CRS is high enough to get an ITA, you will have 60 days to submit your application. Ideally if all documents are ready then it should take max 2 weeks to submit application. Once the application is submitted then it is processed in 6 months time , some applications may take longer. If you account all of these times then it would take 9–16 months.
After getting H1B, how long does it take to get Green Card and become Permanent Resident? Is there any other way, apart from Green Card to become Permanent Resident of USA?
The answer really depends on which category one applies into.EB1-A/B/C: it takes 3 months after I-140 is approved. EB-2: now the nationality of the applicant becomes critical. For e.g., for an indian,  wait can be anywhere between 4 to 6 years on average.EB2-NIW: slightly quicker as a year is saved because labor certification is waived off.Note that getting an H1-B does not set you on the path of becoming a permanent resident. It is the filing of I-140 that starts the clock. Also green card and permanent residency are synonymous.
