Millions of people, including a large number of Indians, who have been waiting years for employment-based green cards in the country can look forward to lawful permanent residency in the US by paying a supplementary fee. If it is included in the reconciliation package and passed into law, it is expected to help thousands of IT professionals who have been awaiting green cards for a long time.
If the bill is passed, you will get relief from the long waiting period.
Green Card is officially known as Permanent Resident Card. It is a document issued to immigrants in the US as proof that they have been granted the privilege of permanently residing in the US. According to a statement issued by the House of Representatives Justice Committee, an employment-based immigrant applicant can obtain a permanent resident card by paying a supplemental fee of US$5,000.
According to a Forbes magazine report, the fee for the EB-5 category (overseas investor) is $50,000. These provisions expire in 2031. For a family-based migrant who is sponsored by a US citizen and has a priority date of more than two years, they must pay $2500 to obtain a green card.
According to the statement, if the applicant’s priority date is not within two years but he is required to be present in the country, he will have to pay a supplementary fee of US$ 1,500. This will be in addition to any administrative processing fee paid by the applicant.
The bill, however, does not include permanent structural changes to the legal immigration system, including increasing the annual quota for H-1B visas for green cards and limits for countries. Before the bill becomes law, the provisions must be passed by the Judiciary Committee, the House of Representatives and the Senate and then signed by the President.
