What Is a U Visa?
When an immigrant is the victim of a serious crime, they're allowed to get a U visa. This lets an immigrant stay in the country. Without it, they'd return to their home country, and American law enforcement officials wouldn't have the information they need to solve the crime. The government created this law in 2000 to convince witnesses to testify.
Recently, the U visa has grown more popular. In 2009, only 10,000 people applied, while 21,000 were on the waiting list. By 2016, 60,000 applicants asked for U visas while 150,000 were stuck on the waiting list. It's a huge problem, since the government gives out only 10,000 U visas each year. The current waiting list of victims approved for a U visa is 78,066.
Because of the huge waiting list, government officials changed the rules for U visa applicants. People now wait in the United States instead of the country they came from. Even though they don't have a U v

What Is a Green Card Renewal?
Green card renewal must occur every 10 years by filing a Form I-90 before the current green card expires. Green card holders can't, however, file this form more than six months before expiration. Applicants can complete this application online but must mail supporting documents to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Green cards are the official documentation for permanent resident status.
Renewing a green card is important, as it shows eligibility for employment and allows international travel without hassle. The USCIS recommends replacing older cards without an expiration immediately with a Form I-90. Upon filing the Form I-90, applicants will receive a Form I-797, or Notice of Action, within two to three weeks.

What is a Green Card?
A green card is a document that allows immigrants to stay in the United States permanently.
The green card is officially called a permanent resident card and serves as proof that you have status as a legal permanent resident of the United States. It affords you immigration benefits, including the right to work and live in the U.S. Any immigrant who is at least 18 years old must carry the green card on their person all the time.
The process to get a green card undergoes frequent revisions and changes, from the steps you need to take to the waiting periods. It’s best to first decide which type of green card you need and then research the requirements for that type.

What Is a Green Card?
A green card is proof that the holder of the card has lawful permanent residency in the United States. This includes permission to live and accept employment in the U.S. It is officially called a permanent resident card, but is sometimes referred to as an alien registration card. Green cards expire 10 years after being issued, which means you will have to renew your green card to maintain your status as a permanent resident.
What Is the Difference Between a Green Card and a Visa?
A visa is a stamp or paper that gives you permission to present yourself at the border or any port of entry into the United States. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer has the final say on whether or not you are allowed into the country. However, being issued a visa is usually a good sign that you'll be allowed to co
