Immigrate to the Land of Opportunity
When it comes to immigrating to the US, there are very few options that can help your dreams of living in the US come true. But amongst all those options, Immigration services Kissimmee definitely take center stage. This is because the huge maze of complex immigration related laws and bylaws that define legal permanent residency or LPR status in the United State of America are not always the easiest of labyrinths for an un-initiated novice to wade in. Yes, it is certainly possible for the average prospective emigrant to try and fill up all the relevant forms on his own, but doing so almost inevitably, increases the risk of an outright rejection per se. And once an immigration petition has been rejected, it is very difficult indeed, to ensure that another one will succeeded where the previous one did not. And this is where you need, to make sure that you have opted for only those Immigration services Kissimmee (and by extension the service providers), that have both the experience as well as the wherewithal, to get the job done right, the very first time over. However, this is easier said than done, and indeed that is precisely why now more and more people have realized the significance of utilizing the services of a skilled immigration lawyer or attorney. This holds even more true for the up and coming town of Kissimmee in Florida state. A a matter of fact, Florida is a leading destination for many otherwise highly skilled workers. And they in turn, have their extended families to take care of. Many such families are scattered in different countries all over the world and indeed, that is where Immigration services Kissimmee can help them reunite with their near and dear ones. Following are some of the laws, rules and regulations that Immigration services Kissimmee have to contend and work with, especially when working with the immigration petitions of many US citizens who want to bring their family members to the US. However, a point to be noted is that Immigration services Kissimmee do not simply work for the reunification of families alone. But they are also instrumental in allowing the inflow of highly skilled workers to the US, provided such workers are not already available in the country, beforehand. First and foremost, we have to understand precisely what immigration law is all about.
- What is immigration law (in the US)?
- The Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICEA): This agency is charged with investigating all those people who break any immigration related laws. Furthermore, it also has the responsibility of actively prosecuting the offenders.
- The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS): This service is charged with handling virtually all applications for legal immigration purposes only.
- The Customs and Border Protection service (CBP): They are directly responsible for keeping the national borders completely secure.
o Department of homeland securityAll of the above three agencies operate under the umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). This department came into existence after the infamous terror attacks of 9/11. IT was the single largest reorganization of different federal departments in over half a century. The core purpose was to streamline the security of all US territory from outside attacks. This is why all immigration and neutralization services of foreigners, (including those people who are desirous of attaining a permanent legal residency status), have to be effectively vetted by this department, before their applications can be processed further, in any way even with the help of Immigration services Kissimmee.
o Visa requirementsAs a general rule, almost all the people who want to visit the US (for whatever work, emergency or recreational purpose they may have) from their foreign countries have to obtain permission so as to be able to enter the United States territory. This permission is typically granted through a visa approval process. Such visas are usually available for two different purposes. Full-fledged immigrant specific visas that may be granted only to those people who are more interested to stay in the country and also become gainfully employed here. Most of these visas are limited by country specific quotas. While on the other hand, many non-immigrant visas are granted to foreign nationals for a wide variety of reasons such as the different types of visas that are granted to students, tourists, and business people or just about anyone who may be in the country on a temporary basis only.
o Non-visa visiting privilegesAt the other end of the spectrum are those citizens of certain highly developed countries that have been declared to be both politically as well as economically stable by the U.S. government. The nationals of such nation states are usually allowed to visit for up to a period of three months even without obtaining a visa, prior to a visit. This system is referred to as a ‘visa waiver program,’ and essentially expedites the system so as to be able to help those people who would come to the US for a vacation. However, a point to be noted here, is that those foreign citizens who are allowed visa free entry are not eligible to work (n terms of remuneration for services rendered), enrol and subsequently attend an institution of learning (such as a school or college), or for that matter apply for legal permanent status. This visa waiver program is, as of now, available to the nationals of 37 countries, but their number changes as per the social and political conditions of both the US as well as these countries, and as such the waiver program can be summarily ended in one nation, only to be allowed for another one.
