Understanding Your Immigration Status
In the United States, there are different categories of immigration status:
U.S. citizens, permanent or conditional residents, non-immigrants, and
U.S. citizens were born in the United States or went through the naturalization
process to become citizens. Permanent or conditional residents usually
have green cards or are in the process of getting their green cards. Once
an immigrant is a lawful permanent resident for 3 to 5 years, they can
apply for naturalization.
Non-immigrants are people who are in the country legally but do not intend
to stay. Students, businesspeople, and even family members may have visas
and non-immigrant status. People with temporary protected status (TPS)
are also considered non-immigrants. Many people move from non-immigrant
status to permanent or conditional residents when they realize they wish
to stay in the country.
