Specialized workers and green cards
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) may allow foreign nationals to secure permanent residency in the United States if they are employed in a position considered by the government to fall into one of several “special job categories.” Some of those jobs or fields of employment are:
- Member of the Armed Forces
- Individuals who can translate Afghan or Iraqi language
- Individuals working for International Organizations
- Iraqi or Afghan nationals who have assisted the U.S. Government
- Religious Worker
- Panama Canal Employee
- Physician National Interest Waiver
- NATO-6 Nonimmigrant
Individuals who are employed in any of these positions should be aware that they will also be expected to meet a number of strict requirements in order to be approved for a green card. At the AmLaw Group, our legal team of immigration attorneys has a firm understanding of the complex and intricate process of becoming an American citizen.
