Immigrants have played a paramount role in shaping the U.S. Just look at the immense contributions from individuals like Sergey Brin, Andrew Grove and Steve Chen and Jerry Yang. Sergey from Russia helped co-found Google; Grove co-founded Intel and Mr.Yang; the Taiwanese founder of Yahoo, and finally, we all know of the legendary Steve Jobs, a half-Syrian, who co-founded Apple Inc.
The elephant in the room now becomes: How does one get to the US? As a matter of fact, this particular hot issue has dominated the recent US campaigns gearing up for the election. One side is completely opposed to opening the doors to immigrants while the other thinks, it is perfectly alright, provided the immigrants follow protocol. Well, frankly speaking, there is a myriad of ways one can cross the border to get to America. Danilo Diaz Granados wrote a great article on the subject, providing unique insight into what makes this possible.
Danilo Diaz Granados was recently quoted on Twitter suggesting that the Green Card route remains to be the most viable avenue to going to America.
Invest a cool million dollars in any of the major cities in the US. Alternatively, invest $500,000 in a rural area in the US and get an automatic Visa.
Secure an employment visa. One also qualifies if they have an advanced degree preferably a master’s degree and higher. Alternatively, you have to prove you are a real maestro in your field of expertise.
This is open for young kids. All they have to possess is a hundred thousand dollars to invest in the states. They must also come from a member nation in the treaty of nations’ pact.
Talented individuals, for instance, an app developer gets sponsored by an American business to emigrate and work there.
This option provides an opportunity for high-ranking business executives.
There’s also a chance for folks to get a short time visa. They get 3-6 months permits which are renewable.
Finally, there is a new provision allowing entrepreneurs to move to the US provided they can raise 100K and hire at least 2 Americans.
